Home Fitness Systems That Work
Are you one of those persons who do not like going to the gym? Perhaps you are just starting out and feel uncomfortable around so many persons. Whatever your reason I am happy to report that you can exercise in the comforts of your home and be just as fit as the person who works out in a gym. I have not been to a gym in several years; I decided it was taking up too much of my time to be driving to the gym, fighting to find a place to park and then driving home again. The idea to start working out at home started initially when my vehicle was down and the thought of taking the bus to the gym did not sit too well with me. So I stated experimenting to see what works for me and settled on the following items. Everybody is different so it is important that you find what works for you.
At Home Fitness Systems
Exercise Stepper – It was important that I get a stepper that had different heights. As you get more accustomed to using the stepper you are going to find that after a while a specific height does not challenge you. So selecting a stepper that can grow with you makes perfect sense.
Ankle Weights – I started using ankle weights after I had a problem with my knee that required me to only wear flats. I was not having that so I started looking around to see what would help me to get back into my heels again. I realized that leg weights could strengthen my knees so after those physical therapy sessions that worked wonders, I decided to keep using the leg weights a couple times per week. I have been doing that for almost 8 years now. Choose the one that is comfortable for your situation.
Exercise Ball – I love the exercise ball but pay close attention when purchasing because it works best when you select a ball that matches your height. What I love about exercise balls is that they are versatile. If you need to travel, you can always deflate the ball and take it with you. They come in a variety of colors so take your pick and lets get rolling. Many also come packaged with a DVD and instructions for use so it makes sense to look for those if you are a beginner.

Exercise DVDs – Sometimes I just feel like popping in a DVD for my workout. One of my favorite persons over the years has been Denise Austin. She is very consistent and practical and I have bought several of her DVDs and still have found no fault with the way she does things. Of course there are many others so take your pick and dance along.
Resistance – For resistance I either use my exercise bands or other free weights. If you are just beginning, it makes sense to start with the smallest weights and work your way up as you improve. These also come in a variety of colors so don’t be shy, pick the colors that speak to you. Be sure to also pick the right weight, Beginner: 3 to 5 lb; Intermediate: 8 to 10 lb; Advanced: 12 lb and over. Resistance bands also come in different intensity levels. This Article will help you determine which resistance band is right for you.

Now if you are a blogger who works at home and need a solution from the regular chair, why not try this very colorful and versatile Balance Ball Chair from Gaiam. Not only will it help with your posture but you will definitely feel better at the end of the day (this might take getting used to- LOL).
It is important that you check with your doctor before starting any exercise. These are just home fitness systems that work for me and might not necessarily work for you so play around to see what works best for you. Also be sure to follow the instructions given with any equipment your purchase for using at home. If you can afford it, then get a personal trainer for a few weeks so you can be sure you are using the equipment in the right way so as not to harm yourself.
