When it comes to working out, there are millions of excuses for not making the effort to exercise. Some of the classics are:

“I don’t have time.”
“I don’t have a gym membership.”
“I’m too tired when I get home from work.”
“I don’t have any equipment at home.”
“I don’t like people looking at me at the gym.”

While these excuses really do not carry much weight behind them, there is an alternative that completely eliminates any reasons you may have for not working out. This alternative is the use of body weight exercises.

Just as the name implies, body weight exercises use your own body in order to create the resistance needed to work your muscles. Below are some of the many advantages of using these types of exercises.

#1 – No Need for a Gym Membership

With body weight exercises, you will be able to perform your work out anywhere. Whether you are at home or on a business trip, you are able to do your workouts and stick with your fat loss program more easily.

#2 – Saves Time

Since you will not need to drive to the gym or set up equipment, you will be able to knock out your workouts more quickly and efficiently. This means that you will have more time for doing other things that you enjoy while still getting in shape!

#3 – Saves Money

Body weight exercises do not require you to buy equipment for your workouts. Not only does this mean that you can get started today but it also means that you won’t have to spend your hard earned money.

These exercises are a great way for you to tone your muscles and burn excess fat without using a gym, committing a lot of time to the process, or paying for gym memberships or workout equipment. There are many different variations on body weight exercises and nearly all of them have the advantages outlined above.
