You don’t have to go to the gym to work out hard
It’s come to my attention that there are some people out there who think that at-home workouts aren’t as effective as going to the gym. (😳 Whaaaaaaat??)
Now I’m not pointing any fingers here, but I’ll hypothesize that whoever goes about blowing such blasphemous statements into the wind clearly never once did a Billy Blanks Tae Bo DVD back in ye old 1990s! 🤣
The blue leotard he wore that barely covered his manly nipples alone made your body wince in embarrassment — therefore working out your abs to crisp chisel.
Now, these naysayers think that working out at home means you’re putting in the meekest of efforts while insinuating that those who are on the treadmills at the gym, reading the latest US Weekly while managing their Tik Tok feed, are crushing it!!
I’ve worked out in the gym a lot and yes, there are people who are indeed crushing it — those early spin classes were nothing to snoot at — but to imply that between the two, the gym workouts produce stronger results are nothing but sugary fiddlesticks.
Truth be told, It’s not where you work out that matters, it’s what you bring to the workout that matters most!
And if those workouts are intense vs just showing up to say to your friends that you went to the gym that day, at-home workouts absolutely work!
If you’re one of the naysayers, I’d like to point out a few perks that working out at-home offers, that you won’t get from a fancy equipment-laden gym land.
Where do I begin?
- Quick start, quick finish → for y’all who are short on time, it’s a massive time saver! You can roll out of bed and onto your workout mat in seconds, press play, and get to it, all without having to brush your teeth! 🪥
- Privacy → workout in your underwear (or blue leotard!) because you’re not distracted by what other people are thinking. Feel free to look red-faced and downright frightening and no one will ever know!
- You’ll find it easier to work out more often → location location location! If you only have 10-minutes to spare, your living room is the easiest spot to get down and dirty with a quickie workout! You don’t need a lot of space — especially if you’re doing the 7-Day Tone your Tummy Challenge — nudge, nudge 😉
- Zero wait time (or rude people using up all the equipment and leaving it nice and sweaty for you) → Your at-home equipment is astonishingly cheap — it’s your body — that thing you haul around all day — and it’s all you need!
It comes down to this: which is more convenient and will take you less time so you can work out every day with as little fuss as possible?
If you haven’t given the at-home thing a try, sign up for my 7-Day Tone Your Tummy Challenge, risk-free — because it’s free — and experience for yourself how rewarding and transformative quick, at-home workouts can be!
Sign up, try it, and share it with your friends because it’s that easy to get in a great workout!
