I've wanted to join a gym but funds are limited. What exercises do non gym folks do? Currently I'm just walking but think I need to increase my activity.

There are tons of exercise videos on youtube that you can do for free, like dance exercise, isometric exercise that you don't need any equipment for, etc. You can also just turn on Pandora or any music service and play peppy music and dance.

I highly recommend Leslie Sansone videos on YouTube for cardio. There are tons of free videos available and they're great. I do these every day. There's something for everyone, from beginners to advanced, and the videos vary in length from about 10 minutes to 50 minutes (I often do two or three shorter ones back-to-back just to mix it up).

I use resistance bands for strength training. You can get a decent set for about $50 and there are free videos on YouTube for that, too.

FitOn is a great app that offers some free workouts. They also have a subscription which was $20 for a whole year when I paid for it. I have since switched to a CrossFit gym to challenge myself further, but I really liked FitOn when I was working out at home.

Many TV subscription plans come with a ton of free exercise videos that you can use/do. I know Comcast/Xfinity used to and I believe Amazon Firestick does too.

if you're into those walking ones on youtube, also check out "Reps to the Rhythm" on youtube - I actually like him better than Leslie Sansone!

I also do Water aerobics and I bike (as in cycling...)

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
