Exercise Anywhere, Anytime

Okay, so I promised a few posts ago that I would talk about exercise and how gyms are not a necessary expense when trying to save money for your travels. In my opinion, if you're doing the right exercises, you don't need a gym or the expensive equipment found in them. You save both time and money by working out at home. 

Whether you're at home or traveling, it's still very important to keep up with your health. Exercise is very, very important! And it doesn't have to take more than an hour each time. Sometimes I only workout for 13 minutes and still feel like I just ran a marathon. It's all about efficiency. Not many people have the time to worry about fitting in a workout schedule on top of everything else. You do have 13 minutes a few times a week to preserve your health, don't you? I would hope so...

Here's a 13 minute routine I do about 3 times a week. You can do it anywhere - at home, on a beach, at work if you feel the urge....anywhere! I dare you to try it. It's not as easy as it seems! I started doing this one ever since I've only needed to maintain my weight. Go ahead. Try it!

If you need to lose weight or desire more defined abs quickly, there's another program I recommend to get it done efficiently - in regards to cost,  effectiveness, and time. I'll get to that in a few seconds, so keep reading. 

Are you ready? Read on....

I'll give you some background information first. I bought this program on a whim one time while I was trying to lose some of my baby weight. I usually don't buy e-books, but I heard rave reviews about this one. I decided to give it a try since it was affordable. 

I hesitate to endorse an e-book on my blog, but I think this one is more than worthy. I'm very glad I did buy it and I can honestly say this e-book is worth the money if you implement the tips and exercises into your daily life. Obviously, nothing is going to help you if your heart isn't in it and you're not motivated enough to try anything. The inspiration has to come from within; if you have that inspiration, give this one a try. 

I have even recommended it to some of my friends and family who are interested in losing weight and they have seen results, too. 

One thing I'd like to note is, even though he does many of the exercises with gym equipment, there are smaller alternatives you can use at home. For example, you can buy an inexpensive set of dumbbells and an exercise ball for home instead of going to the gym. All of the exercises are easy to substitute, and yet still maintain their effectiveness. 

Here's to your good health and good travels! :)

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
