How to Stay Fit Without Going to the Gym

January 25, 2017
Hey, babes! I have been feeling so good about myself lately and have been trying to muster up as much self-love as possible. Aside from my exterior and what I wear on a day-to-day basis, I also think it is important to be healthy. I can say for a good 6 months now, I have been on a pretty consistent exercise "routine". Now, I am definitely not a trained professional of any sort. In fact, this is exactly the opposite. I have attempted to go the gym, but honestly whenever I go in I feel intimidated by all of the daily gym-goers and I don't feel comfortable at all working out. Maybe if I went with someone who could train me, but that is not happening any time soon, haha!




Today's post is all about how I work out at home. Obviously everyone's body is different, but I found that this is what is effective for me. I try and workout for about half an hour every night. I realize this isn't a lot of time for some people, but for my lifestyle I like workouts that are straight to the point. So what do I use? Youtube videos! I found that these instructional videos are the best for me because you can do them in the privacy of your own home and they are free! I typically choose routines that target my butt and abs and sprinkle some cardio in between. I thought I would layout all my routines for the week. *Note you should stretch before beginning

Sunday (Abs):

Monday (Butt):
Tuesday (Cardio): 
Wednesday (Abs): 
Thursday (Butt): 
Friday (Rest Day)

Saturday (Abs & Cardio):
Some glute days during the week, I swap out all videos for some floor work with my 10 lb. ankle weights for about 20 minutes. I don't follow this exactly every week and sometimes I try a new video here and there, but this is the basic premise and I have done all of the above workouts numerous times now and each one has me feeling amazing at the end!

Obviously with wanting to look good, you also have to eat good. This I have been trying to get better at, but I am a bit more lax. However, I do try my best to eat healthy and avoid snacking! I hope some this helps you get a bit more motivated. Working out and getting fit is definitely possible even if you are not a gym person like I am. If you have any questions, leave them below and I will try to help you as best I can.

  1. You look so good babe! Youtube videos are what got me through my first full year of consistent exercise. I started BBG and go to the gym 3x a week. One thing that helps me fight the gym anxiety is to get lost in my headphones and don't pay attention to people, haha.

  2. Lovely idea on how to stay fit! I hate the gym and I don't even workout at home, I just go for long powerwalks, but could definitely need some exercises to do! Xx

  11. Really great routine! I think YouTube fitness channels are super helpful. I find myself working out more at home than when I go to the gym. :)

  12. You look absolutely amazing, girl, look at those abs! I love the fact that there are so many sources these days that make working out at home that much more easier and with results. I prefer going to the gym because I like using certain machines, but on days that I'm too lazy, which are popping up more often now that I'm pregnant, this is a great alternative to still keep active. Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you're having a great week so far!

  13. Ah, I'm so glad I stumbled on to this post! I'm exactly the same - I HATE going to the gym. I like running, but I find it hard to get out of the house when it's dark and cold, and so doing workout's at home has become my solution - I don't want to waste my already short evenings by going somewhere else to exercise when I can do it at home and walk to the kitchen (haha) straight away in 2 seconds.. :p I've been doing Yoga with Adrienne lately and absolutely love it, but I'd like to mix it up every now and then too, so I'm definitely going to be bookmarking this post for video inspo x

  28. You look absolutely amazing!! I have a gym membership that's luckily pretty cheap, but I also love doing Pilates videos on Youtube and I also had a friend gift me the Insanity series a few years ago!

  29. Girl, you're looking great! I love to work out at home but lately it's been so hard for me to keep up! I'm taking inspiration from you because you look amazing! I really love to do the blogilates workout calendar, it's free on her blog! I like it because she tells you exactly what videos to do each day, and you do different routines so that your body does not get used to the same movements, which is supposed to be more effective. You seriously make me want to go back on track like right now!
