Three Affordable Examples
by Emilia Quiroga (guest blogger)
When thinking of starting (or restarting) an exercise program, there are many reasons people give for putting it off. Some individuals are self-conscious about their bodies and are afraid of the thought of visiting a gym. There are some who don't want to spend money for a gym membership and still others feel as though they don't have the time. Each one of these fears can be addressed through exercising in your house. The following are my top three fitness items you can utilize for a quick, affordable workout program. Each one of these can be purchased for under $100 and can simply be used in the house.
Bosu Ball – A Bosu ball is a fitness device that enables a person to balance train as well as aerobic and strength training. Bosu is an acronym for “Both Sides Up”. A Bosu ball looks like a stability ball which has been cut in half and connected to a platform. Several different lower and upper body exercises may be performed with either the dome side up or the platform side up. A Bosu ball with exercise DVD can be bought for around $80.
Resistance Bands – Resistance bands are like huge rubber bands that you pull to work particular muscle groups . Resistance bands are much more simple than typical weight-lifting gear, as they are lighter, more transportable and simple to use. The bands come in distinct levels of resistance and are typically color coded with increasing resistance levels shown with increasingly darker color bands. A number of five resistance bands can be purchased on the internet for as little as $15, and many sets includes either a workout manual displaying how to do various exercises or even an instructional DVD.
Adjustable Dumbbells/Kettle bells – If exercise space is the main concern keeping you from starting an exercise routine, then adjustable dumbbells or kettle bells may be the best option. Instead of having dumbbells/kettle bells for every weight increment, you have one object that you can adjust to the preferred weight. This also is an affordable method of getting a total body workout. Whether you choose dumbbells or kettle bells (or both) is up to your personal choice.
Top quality new equipment could be a bit costly but if you search online you can find absolutely great used tool for under $100.
