Happy Friday, everyone! Do you have big plans for this weekend? My amazing husband is taking me to a big Young Living event close by this weekend, so I am looking forward to the encouragement and learning I’ll be getting there. And time with him, of course! Today I want to share with you my at-home gym! It’s nothing special, but it works for me. And it didn’t cost me an arm and a leg to put together.
First off I’d like to share with you my workout DVDs. I love these things. It took me about a year to build up this many. I also use Youtube videos to workout at home, too! And of course, you have to have a set of hand weights! Any weight will do. I started with 3lbs, worked up to 5lbs, and now I use 8lbs. Do whatever works for you!
Next up- kettlebells. Sigh I love these things. Want to know a secret?….These aren’t mine. Well, sorta. I got these for my Mom’s Christmas present one year when I was living at home. Now that I don’t live at home…I don’t have my own set. But I do go over sometimes to workout with her and use them. 🙂
Here is the rest of my stuff- a stability ball, a weighted ball, a hula hoop, and a yoga mat. Nothing life-shattering, huh? But it works. You can find lots of workouts using those few things to burn tons of calories. Don’t believe me? Check out my Pinterest board!
Those things are quite do-able, huh? Super simple! So, what am I missing? What at-home workout things do you have, that I should? I would love to know!

I love all these items. The kettlebells and weighted medicine ball are some of my most frequently used home gym items. I also love my resistance bands. They are so versatile – I can use them for stretching or as a different option for strength training. They are cheap too! 🙂
I like the Tracy Anderson method videos.
I have one kettlebell that I really like. I got it for Christmas, I haven’t used it much lately, ’cause I’ve been sitting on my butt alot complaining about the cold, but this will inspire me to use it again. I have always wanted to try a weighted hula hoop, maybe that will be my next request. 🙂
I love Jillian’s DVD’s but I also am a big fan of HIIT workouts. As a busy momma those seem to work the best for me, they are short and I feel like I did something when I’m done.
