Strength training without a gym membership

'Going to the gym' isn't for everybody.  Many don't have the time.  Heath club contracts can be an expensive hassle and sometimes the environment is a turn-off.  Whether you’re working full time outside the home, working from home or you're a stay-at-home spouse or parent - your schedule is packed with things that you need to get done. That is understandable, but it shouldn’t prevent you from being healthy and having the body you’ve always wanted.

Strength Training Exercises can be accomplished right in your living room, or any other room in your house. No fancy gym equipment needed, and Without a Gym Membership!


Simply pick a Beachbody On-Demand program that works for you. With Beachbody On-Demand, you can fit your workout in no matter what time of day it is, and you can do it anywhere and in private.  One of the best things about the Beachbody On-Demand programs, is that there's something for every fitness level.  The programs include  a modifier for each exercise and will show you how to perform them correctly to avoid injury.  No matter what your fitness level - beginner to super experienced - there is a Beachbody On-Demand program that will work for you.


Strength Training Exercises: Without a Gym Membership

Ideally, you want a program that will be a challenge without pushing you too hard.  Most of the at-home strength training programs progress at the level that is needed to give you that push.  You can always use the modifier if necessary to fit your current activity level.  You can choose body weight exercises, or try a workout that uses weights, bands or other basic tools that you might already have sitting in your home.






Of course, if you are just getting started and don’t want to commit to buying equipment, you can always use canned food or water bottles for hand weights!  If it’s been a while since you last engaged in regular exercise, it’s probably unrealistic to expect yourself to dive into exercising five or more days per week.  If this is the case, it would be suggested to start with a basic exercise program that allows you to get in some strength training two or three days per week.  It's also recommended that you follow the calendar for the program to help keep you on track. 


Be sure to give yourself small rewards for staying on track.  Maybe there’s a movie that you’ve been desperate to see or a book that you’ve been waiting to read - then put that goal on your calendar.  Promise yourself that if you stay on track with your strength training program for an entire week, you’ll allow yourself that indulgence.


Mix it up! With the huge library offered by Beachbody On-Demand, you can easily access different programs and workouts that will keep your routine fresh and interesting. Having a steady regimen for 3-4 weeks and then changing it up is always a good thing.  Mixing it up can help create greater results.


Workouts and strength training through Beachbody On-Demand is an easy way to get in shape from the comfort and privacy of your own home. You don’t have to go anywhere, there's plenty of variety and it will save you some money by not having a gym membership or driving to the gym. All you need is a television, tablet, or computer and a commitment to getting in better shape.  What more could you ask for?
