Weight Loss Tips - Which Workout Location is Best?

 Which Workout Location is Best?

You can work out at home, in the gym, with or without a trainer, or in any combination of the above. Part of our issue in starting our respective workout programs was selecting a home workout program that felt right for each of us.

Although Marge often walked and swam, she did not push herself hard enough with either activity to justify them as workouts. In fact, in spite of her feeling that she was physically active, she gained weight and was not able to maintain her desired weight. Clearly something needed to change for Marge to achieve her weight loss goal!

Bruce also walked (often with Marge) and, in spite of his high energy metabolism, he was also gaining weight!

When we became Team Beachbody Coaches, we investigated their various home workout programs to decide which was right for us. It was easy to get feedback about the different programs from other Team Beachbody Coaches and from our customers.

Beachbody has created some of the most well-known and popular home workout programs. Bruce plunged into the P90X® Extreme Home Fitness Workout Program, while Marge chose Beachbody’s Slim in 6® Workout Program.

Bruce has supplemented his home workouts with dance-centric exercise classes at our neighborhood wellness center. We both enjoy daily leisurely walks, which are valuable to keep us connected with nature and each other, but we don’t count our walks as workouts.

Hopefully our story of finding the best workout locations for each of us will help you select the best combination for yourself!

A key factor in our own weight management program loss is Beachbody's Shakeology Meal Replacement Shake (disclosure: we are Team Beachbody Coaches and benefit from Shakeology sales). For more information on Shakeology, including what doctors say, CLICK THIS LINK.
