President at Bailey's Total Fitness, Inc. As a Professional Health and Wellness Coach (THE FEEL GOOD GUY)- I help clients who are overweight, overwhelmed, and hopeless to feel good about their bodies, their businesses, and their own God-given power on the inside of them to change their lives.

My favorite exercise tools are: 1. Rubber tubes- I like tubes because they are inexpensive, and light, and exteremely portable. The resistances will also challenge you In order to achieve a good workout. You can use them anywhere in your home, and you can even take them with you on long trips and vacation! People should use them to do strength training exercises that will help them to build lean muscle tissue and strength.

People should use them to do strength training exercises that will help them to build lean muscle tissue and strength. You can work your chest, back, shoulders, biceps triceps, rotator cuff muscles, quadriceps, calfs, and glutes (butt). Tubes are great for an at home or portable total body workout!

 

2. Mat- I like mats, especially thick cushioned , comfortable mats because they are suitable for all ages and body types. From the well conditioned athlete, to the 85 year old, frail, bony, kyphotic lady with a knee and hip replacement can all benefit greatly from floor exercises and stretches on a nice well-cushioned mat! So even individuals with sore achy muscles and joints, bursitis, or those who have bony spine can lie down and use the mat without discomfort. People can work their core muscles, and perform abdominal exercises on the mat. The can also work the chest by doing some push ups, the lower back with prone lumbar raises, work the gluteus with supine bridges, work your hips with side leg raises, and your side obliques (your handles of love and affection) with side crunch

 

3. Jump rope- this is a great piece of home exercise equipment! Very portable, and easy to use anywhere. It can give you a great change of pace from walking or running for cardiovascular training. Especially if you get bored easily or if you have some hip joint issues. You can increase your heart rate drastically with the rope by increasing your jumping speed, and intensity.

 

4. Chair or bench - one of my favorites and most recommended to clients, and customers because of its accessibility – everyone has a chair, bench, stool, or something to sit on! Standing up and sitting down is a very functional activity that we do every single day, so why not turn it into an exercise! Chair Squats is a very functional exercise that strengthens the quadriceps muscles, which helps to stabilize the knee joint, and reduce knee pain. This is one of the easiest, convenient, yet more challenging of the list because you are working those large muscle groups. You can also hold dumbbells, a weighted ball, or even a gallon jug of milk, to make it more challenging!
