Lots of people want to lose weight and get into shape, but they hate going to the gym. They don’t like paying for a gym membership and prefer exercising in private.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with that! In fact, there are easy ways to work out and get healthy without going to a health club. Here’s what I recommend.

ALERT:
Ladies, You’ll Never Lose Weight Until You Do This!
 
Invest in inexpensive equipment. Treat yourself to fitness gear you can use in the comfort of your own home. It doesn’t have to be costly. Purchase a set of free weights, weighing either two or three pounds. A lot of my exercises use dumbbells because they’re one of the best tools out there to help you tone and strengthen. As I always say, they’re worth their weight in gold!
 
For less than $20, an exercise ball also is a great investment. You can use it to work your abs and core. You can do many different exercises with it. Bring it to work and sit on it to engage your core muscles all day long.
 
Eat smart. A healthy diet isn’t just about the number of calories you’re eating; it’s about what you’re eating. Making smart choices is the key to diet success — the right foods can keep your metabolism revved up and your stomach feeling satisfied. Eat more legumes, like beans and lentils, which are naturally low in calories and fat but packed with filling fiber and protein. The best fruit to choose is grapefruit. It’s packed with galacturonic acid, which may help eliminate fat and cholesterol.
 
Eat plenty of protein — it’s the best way to keep feeling satisfied. Eat more lean protein-rich foods like fish, eggs, and chicken to help you control cravings.
 
Give exercise DVDs a chance. You don’t need to leave your house to get a good workout — just grab your favorite fitness DVD! Give my latest DVD, Burn Fat Fast Latin Dance, a try. It’s an exhilarating, 30-minute workout consisting of four mini routines designed to torch calories. You can borrow DVDs from your local library and always have a fresh workout to keep things challenging. Switch it up!
 
Keep a food log. Food journals are a great way to hold yourself accountable for what you’re eating. Studies show that people who keep food journals lose more weight than those who don’t. Plus, knowing that you will have to jot down every single thing you put in your mouth can help stop you from mindless snacking and encourage you to make smarter food choices.
