You can definitely do abs at home, lunges, push ups and swats (wall sits). Do you have room for an exercise ball? You can do a LOT of stuff on that at home. My trainer and I do entire work outs that don’t involve any gym equipment.

Ms. French Bulldog is right!  There’s tons of stuff you can do!  I suggest purchasing a resistance band (you can get them anywhere — I got mine at Target).  You can do lots of arm/shoulder/back workouts with these, and it can even be harder than using weights!

Workout DVDs are great at home — usually you can find them for cheap on amazon.com … I really love TurboJam … and I have to say that Jillian really does kick my you-know-what with her 30 day shred!

I do a lot of working out at my home.  I use a lot of different DVDs (including The Firm set), hand weights, exercize ball, resistance band and a step.  There are also some great workout on our "On Demand" section of our DVR.  I use those a lot too, just to mix it up.

I like DIET.com  They have a lot of videos that can help you out with a home workout and there’s no need to pay a fee to watch them. I look on youtube a lot too, but there is more junk to filter through.

Sometimes, I close my door, put on some heels, and dance to my heart’s content! The heels work the legs a little more that flat footed dancing and it’s fun and not embarassing (unless someone catches you!lol!) I teach an exercise dance class so making up the routines gives me a work out too! I also LOVE  the exercise ball. I do crunches, hamstring curls, leg lifts, and push ups with it, as well as single leg squats! Oooh, and you can do really deep squats to really work the butt by putting hte ball behind you inbetween you and the wall and rolling down into a seated position and back up to standing. Hand weights could be added at the same time to work shoulders with an overhead press, biceps with a curl, or shoulders and back with an extension.

Jump roping could also be done easily at home, as well as stair climbing if you have them. Turn up the Ipod and just move!

Is there a store or a place that sells the newspaper that you could walk to a few times a week? Then increase your distance when you get bored and it’s too easy.

Hope that helps!: )

I HIGHLY recommend buying Jackie Warner’s 3-in-one DVD.  She will kick your butt!  She does Upper, Lower, and Core workouts.  Each are about 20 minutes in length and you can choose which workouts you want to do if you don’t want to do all 3.  All you need are 2 dumbells and a mirror helps so you can check your motions.  Definitely a good workout!

If you google for "body weight exercises" you’ll get ideas on what you can do with little or no equipment at home (or anywhere!).

I bought a wii fit and love it!  It is a lot of fun and you don’t really feel like your working out.. your feel like your just playing a game… but a game that makes your muscles sore after. 🙂

I agree with getting an elastic exercise band. It is definitely my next work out purchase! Also (depending on what you are focusing on) you may want to check out 100 push up challenge. I made a note card that lets me write out how many I do a day. It keeps me motivated checking off each night!
