Home Exercises So Effective You Can Finally Dump That Unused Gym Membership

We all know we should be exercising consistently – at least 30 minutes a day of moderate physical activity, according to the Mayo Clinic. What starts as an admirable goal to get in shape soon settles into the reality of busy schedules and excuses to avoid the gym.

Instead of spending $60 or more monthly on a membership card collecting dust next to the sweat socks in your gym bag, consider the benefits of these exercises you can do from the comfort of your home.

Air Squat

The air squat is a highly effective exercise that targets your thighs, hamstrings, quadriceps, and glutes.

Jump Squat

Jump squats are excellent for developing your strength while simultaneously targeting the glutes, quads, hips, and hamstrings.

Squat Hold

While the squat hold can be challenging, it will develop lower body strength and core control and improve your balance.


While push-ups target your chest, arms, and shoulders, they also protect your lower back and shoulders from injuries and improve flexibility.

Bird dog holds strengthen your back muscles and relieve lower back pain. They also target the upper and lower body by boosting your core and glutes.

Now that you have a plan for working out from home, you can fit a workout into the amount of time it took you to drive to and from the gym. So if that unused gym membership isn't pulling its weight, throw it out truly guilt-free, knowing there's another legitimate alternative.
