If you would have told me five years ago I'd become an avid workout person, I would have laughed in your face. Exercising never interested me until the last couple years, sadly, because I'm approaching my thirties and just wanted to become healthier. First, I did what most people probably do and signed up for a gym. I didn't mind it, but I found it just too time-consuming. Packing my bag, walking there, getting home — I just didn't have the patience for it. Eventually, I found my stride with boot camp and boxing classes. They held my interest and forced me to do what I once hated — I needed that. But at $35 a class, it was a luxury.
Instead,I decided to start using the exercises I learned in class at home, and for that I turned to Amazon. From purchasing weights I know I like to a handy workout mat, my sessions quickly came together. Now I exercise at home 3-to-4 days a week. The fact that it saves me money makes it easy to splurge once or twice a week on one of my favorite classes.
