Working out at home? Need ideas? Check these sites out!

Sometimes it just isn’t possible to go for a run or head to the gym to get in a good workout. Or if you are like me, you just don’t like going to a gym, and would rather sweat in the comforts of your own home. We are so lucky to be living in an era of instant information. Literally, thousands and thousands of workout ideas are at your fingertips! Here are two sites that I think are really great generators of effective workouts. A personal trainer isn’t always an option, this is the next best thing!

Divine Canada
This is a Canadian fitness website (eh?), that features an interactive tool they call an “Exercise Finder”. Simply click on the body part(s) that you wish to focus on during your workout. You will then be asked to your further refine your selection (legs -> hamstrings) and then you will get a list of exercises, along with a detailed description on how to properly execute them, that will tone those muscles. Try it, it is pretty neat!

Gain Fitness
A friend of mine led me to this amazing website and I have used it myself on a number of occasions since. I LOVE it! Go to the site (click the link above) and then click on the “Quick-Workout” tab. You will find yourself on a page where you will be able to choose the length of your desired workout, your workout location (home or gym), your fitness goals (build muscle, fat loss, health/longevity), and the type of workout you wish to do (full body, upper body, core, etc). Submit your specifications by clicking the “Build Workout” button and you will get an awesomely explained workout catered to your exact goals. I love this site. A lot, and I think you will too. There is also a free app for your smartphone.
