Your body is the only workout equipment you need
Thursday, October 19, 2023
Gym memberships and home gyms are typically expensive and usually either take a while to get there or take up a lot of space in your home. However, exercise is one of the best things you can do to stay healthy and live a longer and happier life. So, what do you do? Find a decent pair of shoes, a space with room to move, maybe your basement, backyard, park or wherever and use your body-weight to get fit.
Before challenging your body, challenge your mind to learn more about body-weight exercises.
