    AB Bride:  By runners are you talking about running shoes/sneakers? If so then yes I do. They provide arch and ankle support when I’m doing a high number of different cardio/body weight movements. If I don’t wear them my big toe/ball of my foot get bruised. I also think I tire quicker without shoes. I youtube jillian michaels work outs and I love almost all of them. I highly recommend them if you haven’t already checked them out.

    If by runners you mean athletic shoes, then yes.

    Jillian Michaels has some great videos IMO. Some of them are only 20 minutes but if you’re not used to it you will be hurting the next day lol.

    I think I’m the only one that doesn’t like wearing running shoes to work out or run on the treadmill at home.  I have very flat feet though, so I never feel the need for it!

    AB Bride:  Oh wow, that sounds terrible. Definitely don’t do the video I linked here then, it’s an intense cardio workout after a while. I think if I were you I would just go for a walk or something, most exercise workouts are designed to help people build their strength and endurance quickly, which usually involves soreness :-/

    That’s good that you’re able to find a couple things. Another option would just be to buy a treadmill at home and use it at your own pace & discretion. 

    I find it fairly admirable that you are trying to work toward gym classes at all, if I had a medical reason not to get sore, I’d be on the couch with a pint of ice cream in my hands in 3 seconds flat.

    Do you have a garage? I work out in my garage in runners. Even in a small area…it is a single garage with a car in it, I can hang a boxing bag and go hell for leather. It’s a great workout. Prior to the garage I had a floor based bag to box on and I do surf utube for ideas. Years ago when I first started working out and had nothing I use to do Billy Blanks workouts….you can find them on utube now, probably kinda dated. I also did Jillian Michaels cardio dvds and any kickboxing ones I could find…all without equipment. All of them were good enough to get the heart rate up and I had no issue, even in a very small space I managed.

    AB Bride:  I use free workout apps on my iphone to work out at home. My favorite is just called “workouts” and it is divided into abs, arm, butt, cardio, leg, or you can do the full cycle. You can also choose to do the 5 minute, 8 minute, or 10 minute version of each workout “part”. So if you do the whole thing at max time it’s 50 minutes! I like how you can do a lot or a little. 

    I wear gym clothes and shoes (trainers) even at home.
