Favorite Workouts at Home

the best at-home workouts

Exercise at home with these favorite workout videos!

Since I’ve been making an effort to improve my health and fitness with the TERRAfit challenge, I’ve been working out more regularly. Hooray! Not an easy thing for me. I know everyone has different preferences and opinions on this, but for me personally, I prefer to work out at home.

There are a few reasons I prefer working out at home:

  • I don’t have to pay for a gym membership.
  • No extra time spent traveling to and from the gym.
  • I can just roll out of bed and get started.
  • It doesn’t matter at all what I look like or what I’m wearing.
  • Shower and kitchen are conveniently nearby.
  • The standard of cleanliness and the germs are my own.

I do really like the ease, the convenience, and the privacy of exercising at home. Of course, I understand that different people have different preferences. But if you’re interested in working out at home, here are some great ideas for you!

I took a poll of my Facebook friends to find out about their favorite at-home workout videos! I loved all of the suggestions and want to share their great ideas with you!

Read on down through the whole list! I’m sure you’ll find at least a few workouts that interest you. I know I did!


Focus T25

One of my friends said, “I like that it comes with a lot of videos so I can switch it up and not get bored.” Amber loves this workout too because it is only 25 minutes, but “hardcore” and she loves that is has alpha and beta version workouts included. Once you finish the 5-week alpha version, you can move right on to the beta version.

You can get the Focus T25 with some bonus tools and gifts. Or you can check out Focus T25 on Amazon. Look over both buying options before you decide and get what you think will work best for you.

Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

This is an old school workout DVD that I’ve used personally for years! It is very affordable. There are 3 workouts, progressing in difficulty, and I like that strength, cardio, and abs are all included. The best part is that it is a great workout crammed into only 20 minutes.

A few friends said they like working out at home with the free Fitness Blender videos. One friend said, “You can customize your workouts every day and you’ll never get bored.”

Insanity Max: 30

A friend said, “They are intense, but so fun. I can already tell a difference. It is a competition against yourself each time to go longer before you max out. They are only 30 minutes, which is totally do-able.” Of course, the original Insanity workouts are really good too, they are just a bit longer.

Insanity Max: 30 includes 12 different cardio and tabata strength workouts. You can get Insanity Max: 30 with bonus tools and two free bonus workouts. Or you can get a few different Insanity Max: 30 sets on Amazon. Check out both buying options before you decide and get what you think will work best for you.

Nike+ Training Club

One friend said, “I’ve tried BBG and it’s got good ideas. I got bored with it though. My favorite at home workouts are through the Nike Training Club app on my iPhone. I’m always sore after and I feel like they’re pretty fun.” Looks like it is free too!

piyo workout dvds


A friend said, “I love TurboFire and PiYo from Beachbody.” And a few other friends, including Monica, said they love the PiYo workouts too!

“No weights. No jumps. Just hardcore results.” It combines the muscle-sculpting benefits of Pilates with the flexibility advantages of yoga. You get 8 different PiYo workouts with instructor Chalene Johnson, and some bonus tools and gifts. Or you can get PiYo workouts on Amazon. Check out both buying options before you decide and get what you think will work best for you.

cindy crossfit workout


A friend said, “CINDY is a crowd fave. 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, 15 air squats. As many rounds as possible for 20 minutes. You can do a band pull or chair assisted pull up since we both know we’re no She-Ra. Add plank Jacks at the end for a total body workout you can take to the bank.”
