I am a huge supporter of those who choose to work out at home versus going to the gym. I, myself, like going to the gym, but I can’t always find the time. For me it is much easier to just get in a 30 minute work out while I can during the day versus having to make a drive and spend AT LEAST an hour and a half of my day going to the gym. When you’re busy and have a toddler like I do, or just have a busy life anyways, that extra hour of going to the gym just can’t happen sometimes.
That is why I have come up with a list of my top 5 recommendations for equipment that is good to have at the house, without taking up a lot of room.
