Sweatin’ to the Tube
If you are like everyone else that enjoys exercising on a regular basis, even the most faithful will at times become bored with their program or routine. Someone once said that variety is the spice of life and that definitely holds true for working out as well.
Going to the gym can become a chore and doing the same old, same old, well, just gets old. You know when you don’t feel well how good it feels to just be inside your own home? Well the same is can be true for working out. As another old saying goes, there is no place like home, the same is true for working out. Sometimes there is nothing more energizing than working out at home.
Ok, you have made the decision to change your routine a bit and workout for a couple of weeks from the comfort of your home. Now what? You don’t have all the fancy equipment or space, so just what should you do? When all else fails turn to your TV and DVD player as your source for a great workout. Here are five DVD workouts from American Fitness Magazine that will have you glad you skipped the gym!
