If you don’t like going to gyms but love getting fit, these 3 excellent home workouts are just the ticket.
I don’t like going to gyms. a period. I don’t like the hassle of actually having to go somewhere to work out, and I don’t like the super competitive atmosphere of gyms. I’m not fond of using gym equipment that others have just left behind with sweat stains, nor am I impatient with having to wait to do my workouts because someone else gets in the way.
Most of all, what I don’t like about gyms is the lack of privacy. Now, this is completely subjective, but I find that I do the exercises better when I do it in the privacy of my own home, with a well-designed plan and I will finish it at the required time and get back to my daily life.

But it is certainly very effective, especially when it comes to improving your functional fitness.
Dumbbell full body exercise:As an at-home exercise fanatic, let me tell you, dumbbells are your best friend. For most types of exercises, all you need are two sets of dumbbells, one lighter set, and one set heavier. The sky’s the limit, when it comes to the quality of training you can achieve with even a pair of dumbbells.
