So right off the start, I hate my stationary bike lol. I barely lasted 5 minutes let alone 20 minutes. So I did 5 minutes and then went on the treadmill to do 20 Minutes and it was an Awesome 20 Minutes! My warm-up speed was a 3ph, it used to be 2. As the saying goes about weight loss, where you started will one day be your warm-up. I now understand that statement 100%! My warm used to be 2.0 – 2.5 speed. Now it’s a 3 and my jogging time was 3min, 4min and 5min at a speed of 4,4, and 4.5! Not to mention the fact I crushed my mile time. It used to be an 18 minute mile, today I crushed that time! I did a mile in 16.30!
Looking around my basement, I knew there had to be a way to create a small yet functional at home gym. Why spend $50/month for a gym membership when I can do it all right in my basement? Not to mention, January and February are brutally cold in Alberta, Canada so who really wants to go out in that. Plus, $50/month could be used on new clothes that I will be needing when the weight starts to come off.
So, my sister-in-law gave me her exercise ball, I pulled the bosu ball and resistance band out of storage, grabbed my yoga mat and dug out my free weights and set it up. You don’t need a full on gym to get a good workout at home. Follow along and I will show you how I’m doing it with just the equipment pictured and a treadmill.
