Thanks for posting this. I work out at home most of the time, it's more comfortable and it's better for me since I don't have that much time. I just go to the gym to do yoga and to swim.

It's true. You really don't need any equipment to workout. I do most of my workouts without anything but a chair, a bottle of water, and some good music. :)

Thank you for this. Really gotta get pumped to work out again. Just gave up my gym membership that I had been donating to for at least two years. Not good.
