If you're like me, when life gets busy my workouts are first up on the chopping block. Honestly, working out just isn't my jam. If I had the time to play in a sports league every night of the week I'd be in heaven, but that's not real life. So, I'm always on the lookout for quick, effective and, most of all, FREE workouts that I can do right in my living room with no fancy equipment.
With that being said, behold, seven kick-ass home work-outs! Join me on this week long fitness challenge. This week is all about having fun and getting a variety of different types of workouts in so keep an open mind and don't worry about looking like a goofball - that's what home workouts are for!

Have Rheumatoid Arthritis or other conditions that require more low-impact work-outs? I'm with ya! That's why all of these are low-impact workouts that still pack a punch! Remember though, listen to your body and do what works for you - modify as needed! You can always make a workout more or less challenging depending on your level of fitness.
As always, you should consult your physician before starting this or any other exercise program.

If at any point during your workout you begin to feel discomfort, light-headed or nauseous, you should stop immediately and call your doctor if necessary. You are responsible fore exercising within your limits and seeking medical advice and attention as appropriate.

Never skip a Monday! Get your week started off right with this short low-impact cardio workout. This girl has the enthusiasm you need for a Monday. Don't be fooled by the "beginner" in the title, I was feeling this big time the next day!
Cardio Calorie Burn Dance Work-out with Denise Austin by BeFiT
I have to be honest, I haven't tried this one yet but am seriously looking forward to it... I mean is there anything more soothing than Denise's encouraging voice? Haha I love her! Channel your inner 90s mom and get your groove on! The more outrageous you make it the better the workout... #fact
Low impact but super intense! May need to modify based on your level of fitness, but give it a go and try to end your challenge going strong! Dumbbells recommended but soup cans would work for most of the exercises (I would obviously not recommend trying the plank exercises using soup cans - modify appropriately people!!).
Rinse and Repeat
How'd it go?! Are you feeling like a million bucks? Are you feeling like you can't lift your arms up? Wherever you're at stick with it! Each week will get easier and easier until you're modifying these workouts to make them MORE difficult, not less.
