Fitness: Favourite 'At Home' Workouts

For various reasons, sometimes you just don't feel up to going to the gym. It may be the weekend or you may only have 40 minutes or so to work out and don't feel like trekking all the way to the gym.

In my uni days I used to buy a new workout video (yes video!!) each year and do it in my room in halls as I couldn't afford the gym as a lowly student. I think some of these thrifty habits have stayed because I still like to do the odd workout in my living room now and again.

My favourites at the moment are...

Jillian Michaels: Banish Fat Boost Metabolism Workout

Oh Jillian. I shouldn't love you but I do. Ever since her days on Biggest Loser USA and then the ever popular '30 Day Shred', which I actually bought on DVD she has been my at-home fitness guru of choice.

This workout, for those familiar with Jillian's methods, runs along the same lines. There are different routines, each focussing on various parts of the body. This isn't for the faint of heart as it's very high intensity but if you're after something intense to do in your living room, this is the one for you!

Denise Austin: Ultimate Fat Burn Workout

Now this is a great one if you haven't got a lot of time and don't want anything too intense. There is a lower intensity workout and only lasts just over 20 minutes so is a great option if you need to squeeze it in in a hurry.

I found this one on the Be Fit channel on You Tube, which has some great fitness videos and they're all FREE!

What are you favourite 'at-home' workouts?
