Get fit without joining a gym

For some reason, our society seems to associate getting fit with joining a gym. Lots of people pay significant amounts of money every month to do something on a treadmill that they could just as easily do in the park. It is more difficult, however, to do strength exercises with no dedicated equipment.

This tribe is for people to swap tips and ideas on how to exercise without spending lots of money. It might involve buying some cheap equipment for the home or office, using items that you have already, or doing exercises like press-ups and crunches, that don't need any equipment at all.

This has been pretty great for me, but that's because I need to work on my abs ( a lot, haha).

Advanced stretching is also a good release for times I don't have energy to go all out and do we...

Like many of the other comments take some thirty day challenges . Try the 30 day shred by Jullian Micheals. I havent done this myself but have watched many videos on it and the results are visible.  Just look up on youtube for videos on it and hop...

thanks for sharing the article  Colleen, it stands to reason that everybody's structures, usage and condition will be different, but the comment that everybody should be able to do deep squats regardless is possibly debatable.

whats your thoughts...

Kristy O Get fit without joining a gym Tribe

Contributorbronze Kristy O Hello everyone! I am new, and just wanted to say hi! I am also new to Tribe Sports, and have so far found it to be the absolute best program (for lack of a better word) I have found yet! It seems like more than a program, but instead, a lifestyle. Kind of like Paleo. :)
I work out in my garage at 6 a.m. I have a decent little set up. I need more weights, but other than that I am very happy with my equipment. I am currently doing the 30 Day Butt Challenge, and the Guns, Buns, and Abs challenge. It is great to be here! :D

Welcome to Tribesports Carol, Colleen and Amanda's advice is good. You haven't updated your bio, so no one knows anything about your previous sporting and fitness exploits or medical history, so it is hard to advi...

Amanda C Get fit without joining a gym Tribe

I agree with Colleen. Anytime anyone is starting out a new workout or just new to exercising should meet with a physician for doing or starting anything. Just to make sure of all the interesting things going on in yo...

Adrian K Get fit without joining a gym Tribe

Yes they are pretty pointless as an exercise - much better options available and it's a shame so many people waste time on them.  As you mentioned if done excessively they can mess with your posture, and they have...

Rylen O Get fit without joining a gym Tribe

I've heard the same thing and it kinda swayed me into not going them as much. But I've heard that you won't see results from doing situps or crunches unless you get rid of the top layer of fat on your stomach that mo...

Zachary S Get fit without joining a gym Tribe

I'm sure as with any exercise, crunches and sit-ups have their bad side as well. Let this not deter us from what we know to work. Proper form is crucial, failure to acknowledge this fact will cause many people to go...
