    i have been looking around and around realjock for an fitness plan but all of them from what i have seen requires going to a gym. i am a 24/7 live-in care giver, which means that i cant go to a gym on a regular time. if anyone knows of a fitness plan can you please let me know. i would really love it.

    Your profile says you are looking to loose weight, add to the above with running and biking around your neighborhood.

    go to craigslist to find videos of p90x or insanity. a LOT cheaper and it's the same thing. with p90x you will need bands or some weights and a pull up bar. but i would def recommend it...they are great workouts.

    This is the best workout I've found for outside the gym - The 7 Tiger Moves. Here they are:

    It looks easy. It is not easy and in fact is some of the most difficult exercise I've ever done.

    In addition, you should check out Super Health by KC Craichy (the guy talking in the video). In the interest of full disclosure, he's a bit of a crazy Christian, but there is nothing offensive in the book, and his nutritional and exercise science stuff is sound. The book has photos of all the 7 Tiger Moves and clear explanations.

    These are martial arts training moves, which use only muscle tension and contraction to build strength. When you're at home and have access to a gym, it's good to bring these into your rotation, too.

    And of course, most ab exercises can be done outside the gym.

    Good luck!
