    I love and use all of these! I agree, I would never pay for a gym membership with all the great workouts I can do at home. However, I do love classes and get excited from working out with a group. The energy from group classes really pushes me to the next level. :) Great post!

    • I agree!! I love going to classes to mix my workouts up and it’s a great way to spend time with friends sweating it out. But just paying to use weight and cardio machines at a gym isn’t my cup of tea… I would do the same things there that I do at home!
      Thanks for stopping by Jessica!

    I’ve been wanting to get those tone it up mini bands! They look like they would give a great workout!

  3. Rosemond says:

    I have a home workout area and I’ve got all this equipment but I need to get some new resistance bands because mine are getting too old and I’m afraid they will break! And the mini bands look great for doing squats and other exercises for my hamstrings.

    I dropped my gym membership at least a year or so ago, and you’re right, once you acquire a few of the essentials you really don’t miss it! I’ve done really well with just a mat, hand weights and medicine ball. :)

    I love my gym membership because it has been so convenient and sometimes I’m able to fit a workout in after work, but before picking the kids up from their activities. I do also love having some of the equipment to workout at home when I can’t make it to the gym or when I want to do a little extra while watching TV. I have everything you’ve listed except for the kettlebells. I’ll have to try those out. My goal is also to eventually have a separate workout room instead of having my equipment piled in the corner :)

    • That’s great that you’re able to squeeze some workouts in at your gym! There are none close to my home or where I work, so it’d just be an extra out of the way drive to go anywhere! And get them!! I love my kettlebells. :)

  6. I love working out in studios but it gets so expensive. For home workouts, I love doing the ones from Beachbody or Popsugar fitness. I keep adding to my growing collection of workout stuff and a few of the items on your list are on mine to buy – such as the kettlebells and stability ball. I’ve got most of the other items already!

  7. I love this post…I am now looking at working out on my own too instead of signing up for a gym/exercise package… I used to go to a women’gym last time but under utilized my package so its such a waste of money…Thanks for the post!

    • I’m glad you liked it! I think that working out at home has been a great decision, because I don’t throw money down the drain and I’m more likely to get it done when I don’t have to go anywhere to workout haha. Thanks for stopping by!

    Great choices. I love my dumbbells and resistance bands. I do love going to the gym, though. I love being in an exercise class, rather than just doing the DVD. I love my instructors.

    • I agree, Shann! I love going to exercise classes, and that’s the only thing I liked about having a gym membership. Luckily, though, there are so many boutique studios popping up now so I can still sweat it out with real live people and have fun!
