    Long story short, my gym is being put under new management and they are going to raise prices and have absolutely no clue how to run the kickboxing class. People have begun to leave. I do however have a location to train in cardio since I been doing kickboxing long enough to know what to do during a session. What I need help with is to find a way to do weight traning without the use of weights (if that makes any sense). My location's weight set is confined to a bench press bar. If anyone could direct me to any good sources I would appreciate it. I refuse to stop all the hardwork I put in to losing close to 30 lbs. I refuse to go back to being depressed.

    There's great news! You can actually get in great shape and never have to step into a gym! Try bodyweight exercises. You can get truly great shape from the comfort of your own home.
    Some people will have you believe it's not possible without weights and while its true you won't look like a bodybuilder by any means, you can definitely get quite ripped. Once exercises get too easy you can try harder exercises or add a weighted bookbag, vest etc.
    Check out bodyweightculture.com if you are interested in an online community that focuses on these types of workouts.

    Yeah, take some time to browse some books on Amazon and some YouTube videos for bodyweight exercises.

    You can also substitute things like gallon water jugs in place of dumbells.

    I have a book by Jim Wharton called "The Whartons' Strength Book" that has a program, there's dozens of others, but if you need a starting place, its a good book.
