No Treadmill? Try This

If you love running outside, but aren't into Winter running, you may opt for using a treadmill. Buying one can be pretty pricey and so can joining a gym (those monthly payments really add up).

Check out this creative and less-expensive option using a door, a resistance band, and a door anchor.


NO TREADMILL? NO PROBLEM. HERE IS A GREAT TIP - Funny videos are here

This does seem a bit dorky, but it really provides an excellent workout. Tell me in the comment section below if this is something you would do.

I would definitely do this -- especially when I'm traveling since the equipment is light & I never know what conditions will be at the place I'm traveling to!

So what if he looks silly. I don't think he does. I think this a great idea!! My husband, who is a trainer has used similar movements with his clients with excellent results.

Yeah, I think it'd hurt my tummy. Plus I don't think any of my doors would stay shut.

OMG are you guys kidding me? There are much more dorky looking workouts out there right now. This guy looks plain in shape to me. I would def. try this (I'm doing it tonight) because right now it's icy outside, and I can't run without thinking I am going to fall and crack open my head. Thanks Fit!

I think I might start doing things like this in conjunction with the treadmill.

Would you not get a major rash/burn where the band touches your mid-section? It just looks uncomfortable.

I think it's cool. It's a cheap way to work out, and I'm always in for that. :)
