My Favorite Home Workouts

Apr, 14, 2023

In this blog post, I will talk about my favorite home workouts. Even if I have 2 gym memberships, from time to time I still like to have a sweaty workout at home.

I worked out at home for many years. I started working out at home when I was a young teenager, with a book by Jane Fonda, (if you are curious about the exercises, I found a video here).
In my late 20s, I tried Jillian Michaels’s workouts, and in the past years, I tried A LOT of home workouts.

I home-trained so much, that I decided to share with y’all my favorite workouts because there is good stuff out there – you don’t need a gym to have a badass workout.

Why I love working out at home

  • Can give amazing results.
  • Is cheaper.
  • Doesn’t involve going out.
  • You can go straight to shower, in your house.
  • You can exercise anytime, and a small space is required.
  • Nobody is watching you, besides family or pets.

My essentials from working out from home

Here are my essentials for a proper home workout:

  • Mat: don’t save money on the mat, you need a good one, that will stay in place. Gamechanger.
  • Dumbbell set: If you have money and space to invest, I suggest you a full set.
  • Elastic bands: for booty gains, trust the elastic band.
  • Fitbit: This is essential to my life, not only during my workouts. It keeps track of my exercise, steps, calories burned, and much more.
  • Jump rope: I have to use it often, I admit it, but the jump rope is one of my favorite tools to use in the summer.
  • BCAA to hydrate me during the workout – read the Best Sugar-free BCAA in The Netherlands
  • Post Workout Protein Shake – read the Best Sugar-free Whey in the Netherlands

My Favorite Home Workouts

I have divided the workouts into categories: no equipment needed and equipment needed. The workouts are also different types: HIIT, weight lifting, yoga, pilates, rope, or just walking.
