Working out at home is hard! That was my discovery 2 years ago when I quit my 9 to 5 job and started working freelance. At the end of the day, the last thing I wanted was drive for half an hour to go to the gym, but I didn't want to work out at home either. I just didn't have the drive or motivation to do those push-ups, pull-ups, or crunches you just come to hate after endless months of repetition.
Then, a friend told me about BodyRock. He showed me a few videos on YouTube, and I was hooked! This, of course, was way back in the beginning of BodyRock when it was just Zuzana and Freddy doing the simple workouts at home. I loved the way they used simple items found around the house to work out - rather than using weights, dumbbells, kettlebells, and all the other trappings found in a gym. It was just simple, practical workouts to do at home, and they were perfect for me!
One year later, I hadn't made too much progress, but I was getting in shape. I would do the latest workout, but I didn't keep up with all of the BodyRock community updates. However, at the end of last summer, I made the decision to put more emphasis on my fitness. I signed up for martial arts lessons, I took up running, and I started getting more serious with my BodyRock workouts.
Today, I'm 30 pounds lighter, a lot stronger, a green belt in 5 martial arts, a runner with two races under my belt, and in much better condition! I can say that BodyRock totally changed the way I viewed working out at home, and the DailyHIIT has just made things even better! I love writing for the site, and I love being part of the community of people dedicated to working out at home. I can't wait to see what happens over the next year as I work even harder!
