Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


It’s so encouraging to see that some people are getting up off the couch, and doing something active. I must admit that a lot of people are now taking a keen interest in getting back in shape and stay healthy. While there are others who just keep making-up excuses and more excuses.

Two common barriers for people who want to exercise and get in shape are a lack of time and money needed for fitness.

Who has the time to go to the gym, or buy expensive equipment, or take long bike rides?
Well, if those are the things stopping you, you’re in luck.

It takes no equipment to get a great workout and get in shape, and with one or two pieces of simple equipment, you can turn that great workout into a fantastic one, you magnificent beast, you.
And with little or no equipment required for a fantastic workout, you can do it at home, or wherever you are. Even if you’re in solitary confinement – one lesson we can learn from prisoners.

It’s hard not to find time for this type of workout — you can do it while watching TV, for goodness sake!

Using just your bodyweight, you can do a large number of challenging exercises. I suggest starting with bodyweight exercises along with some cardio (i.e. walking, jogging, swimming, etc) and then slowly transitioning to a combination of bodyweight and weight training to get a good balance.

And even if you’re doing a complete weight training program, you can always use bodyweight exercises anytime you can’t make it to the gym.

I’m curious to hear your excuse(s) – why you’re still falling asleep in front the TV when you could be doing something active. Let’s hear ‘em in the comments.

I aggree completely. One will find it amazing the results that can be achieved through commitment and time and absolutely no gym equipment at all. The only barrier to satying fit is oneself and as soon as that hurdle is overcome, the results are endless. A combination of a few exercises daily or regularly can work wonders for the average man.

Drop us some tips Chris, probably that will encourage us to do more about our physical condition.
