FIVE WAYS TO WORKOUT FOR FREE: TARA BERRIES


Being a supply teacher means that I can't always afford a gym membership. Instead of paying a monthly gym membership I have found some creative ways to get a decent workout at home. Here are my five ways to workout for free:

1. Walking/jogging/running: I luckily live near two high schools with tracks to jog around but in the winter months I try to get out and walk around my neighbourhood. Being outside in the fresh air is a great way to get me to feel better.

2. Nike Training Club: While I do get outside a lot to jog around the track or take a walk in my neighbourhood, I also think it is a good idea to get some strength training in. Nike+ Training Club is a free app for iPhone and Android which has Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced workouts. If you want to get lean, get toned, get strong, or get focused they have a workout for you. You can also sync your playlist to your workout and there are demonstrations for each exercise move.
3. YouTube Workouts: Whether you are doing a Blogilates workout or a Tara Stiles Yoga routine they are all free! I am always nervous about attending a Pilates class but I don't need to worry because I can do a Blogilates workout for free online. I love turning on my Smart TV and putting on a workout video.

4. Dancing: Dancing to a playlist on my iPod is one of my favourite feel good things to do. Not to mention that after dancing around my bedroom I feel so great from the endorphins! I am a terrible dancer but dancing in my bedroom means no one even knows I am doing it.

5. Shopping: No, this is not a cop-out...have you tried shopping all day? If you are busy shopping all day on the weekend, don't fret, you've been walking all day! Shopping is one of my favourite workouts because you have purpose for being on your feet all day and you can enjoy your purchases when you are finished.


What are some ways that you like to workout at home? I would love to hear an exercise tip in the comments! I hope I gave you some different ways to workout at home.
