Weight Loss

Lose Weight Without a Gym Membership

February 25, 2014

I  lost 45 lbs in 8.5 months and I didn’t once step foot in a gym. I don’t say this to brag by any means I mean this as encouragement! A lot of people do not have the extra funds to go towards a gym membership nor do they need one to accomplish weight loss. I completely understand the desire of working out with a community of others set out wanting the same goal. It’s not a bad thing by any means and can certainly contribute to weight loss but it IS absolutely possible to dramatically change your weight all from home.


Weight loss from my experience is completely behavioral and emotional. I have lived on the roller coaster ride of emotions that come with “wanting” to lose weight. I wanted to be thinner and healthier but my behavior wanted a burger and a coke. It takes self-will, determination and all the self-control you can muster up. It starts with your diet before anything else. Controlling and disciplining your eating habits first will enable you to commit to consistent exercising. I give 90% credit of my weight loss to my diet. It wasn’t until I was already losing weight that I began exercising. Disciplining my diet made working out a natural next step.

We live in a world where so much is available to us at our fingertips. YouTube alone has thousands of workout videos available to you right now implementing some of the same exercise routines in gyms. You can find dance, cardio & aerobic, HIIT, tababta, yoga, pilates, barre and so on. Pinterest takes the guess work out of searching YouTube and allows you to start pining your favorite workout videos where you could potentially build your own exercise program. You can get killer workouts and amazing results from FREE workouts like FitnessBlenderBody Rock TV, and even an awesome new app called Hot5 Fitness that are fast and effective workouts for people on the go.

Another way to get the best bang for your buck is to to see which workout videos your buddies have. Maybe even have a get together with a few friends and bring all your exercise videos and swap for a few months. There are always ways to start implementing healthy habits into your life.

If your on a tight budget or trying to become debt free use the money you have been using on a gym and put it towards debt. Workout from home, clean up your diet and achieve weight loss without ever leaving home or spending unnecessary money. Becoming healthy doesn’t have to start with a gym membership it begins with a personal decision of commitment, discipline and self-control. If you have a will to change your life and you want it bad enough, you will find a way.
