Want to get in better shape but don’t want to pay for a gym membership? Why not work out in your apartment: you get the privacy you want, and there are lots of ways to get a great workout, no matter your level.The first thing you need is a foam workout mat. I like the Connect-A-Mat from Walmart, it comes in different colors, and is easy to put together and then hide when done or people come over. This softens the noise for your neighbors, plus your ground workouts are much softer.The second thing you need is some weights. Again, head to Walmart to buy two different sets. I recommend both a 3 pound and 5 pound set of rubber or neoprene dumbbells if you are just starting out.
