No Gym, No Problem…

Let me begin this with a few assumptions about you:You don’t feel like you have the time to spend at a gym.Maybe you don’t even have the desire to spend your only free time inside of the gym.You don’t feel like working out in front of other people.You don’t want battle over shared equipment with your fellow gym goers.You oftentimes convince yourself that you can’t work out because you do not have the equipment to do so.You also feel that gym memberships can be a bit pricey.

​If any of these assumptions are true for you, no worries! I have a solution for you! A bodyweight workout that can fit right into your day, at any location you desire! You don’t have to be cooped up indoors to work out! You don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home or office! 
Here you’ll see that I have shared a workout video comprised of eight body-weight exercises that were completed at the Old Mandeville Lakefront and Trailhead. These are just a few examples from an endless list of body weight exercises that can be chosen from. The exercises listed below and demonstrated in the video can all be modified to fit your needs and abilities.
