I have a question for the group: How many of you go to a gym and how many of you have some sort of gym in the home? Question B is: IF you work out at home, do you think you limit yourself? (But my next question is since I work from home, if I joined a gym in town, would I use it?)
And Bee will be just fine, Queen is so formal don’t you think? ;-)[/quote]
Hey Bee! To answer your question, I train at a gym. It’s really close to my house so I sometimes just walk, and we get a great deal on a membership because my husband works for the university here. It’s a beautiful facility.
When I started out, I trained at home or in a nearby park for the first six months. I started just using some DB’s, pushup and pullup variations, BW squats and lunges etc… until I started to feel like I needed to access heavier weights. At home I have a nice set of DB’s up to 15 lbs. and one adjustable set, so I sometimes do shoulders at home if I’m in a pinch.
Do you already have some equipment at home? Honestly, I think a lot of women can get in pretty good shape doing mostly BW exercises plus a few DBs. If you want to see an awesome home gym, go lurk Up’s log.
