Health Tip: Work Out at Home

(HealthDay News) -- If you want to get fit, strong and healthier, you don't need to invest in a gym membership. You may get a great workout with just a few essentials at home.

The American College of Sports Medicine says these should include:

  • A clear, uncluttered space of about 100 square feet.
  • Some inexpensive exercise equipment, such as light dumbbells, a stability ball and resistance bands.
  • A plan for a structured resistance training routine of eight to 10 different exercises that work the muscle groups.
