I am hoping that those of you who are always on the lookout for workouts you can do at home will like this one! I’ve dubbed it the “No Gym No Problem” workout because all you need is your body. Yep, this workout includes only bodyweight exercises, so save it for a day when you want to sneak in a workout at home or when you’re traveling since it can easily be done in a hotel room, too!
The workout will work your whole body by targeting your upper body, lower body and core but also includes bursts of cardio to keep your heart rate up and make ya sweat!
No Gym No Problem At Home Workout
If you complete all three rounds of the workout, it should take you right around 36 minutes, but please remember to take the time to rest as needed and listen to your body.
Increase The Intensity
Looking for a way to increase the intensity? Here are some tips:
- Add 45 seconds of mountain climbers or burpees in between each round
- Complete the arm circles, squats and lunges with a set of dumbbells
- Complete the cardio exercises for 90 seconds each instead of 60 seconds
Below you will find links to demonstrations of all of the exercises found in this workout!
At home, body weight workouts are some of my favorite routines, and no excuses!
I love your at home workouts! I always do them when traveling. Thanks for sharing 🙂

Yay I’m always on the lookout for these too! I usually do Fitness Blender workouts at home or other YouTube workouts but I always like to change it up every now and again–thanks for sharing!
Julie, what camera are you using these days? I am looking to get rid of my old Canon Rebel XSI and purchase a new one, just interested in what you are using!
I flip flop back and forth between my point and shoot (a Canon PowerShot S110) and a Nikon D3000!
here’s why i can’t workout at home: my cat bites my feet and arms. she must despise burpees as much as me b/c she’s right there snapping at me with every jump

I love the at home bodyweight workouts! I don’t have a gym membership and live in a tiny NYC apartment, so whatever I can do with just me, whether in my apartment or out in Central Park, works the best 🙂
Awesome!! Glad you like them!!
Kelli @ Hungry Hobby says
Love a great at home workout with minimal equipment and maximum sweat! Nothing like saving time and busting a sweat at the same time!
Melissa @ Melly NYC says
Thanks for this Julie! I love at-home workouts that don’t require any equipment. My muscles are HURTING today after going a bit overboard with a double workout yesterday, so I’m listening them to my body and resting up. Hopefully they are feeling better tomorrow so I can do this workout!
These are my favorite kind of workouts!! Thank you for sharing!

Thanks for sharing this, these are helpful for days I’m busy! I’ve been working on triceps push-ups, they’re so hard for me! ?
Rachel @ Simply Rachel Nicole says
You always have the best at-home workouts!
I really like the dumbell or body-weight alternatives. Does anyone like burpees? Why are were they so easy when I was little?
Great tips. My gym membership expires in a few days and I have decided to wait with the renewal till after the summer.
I will make sure to do the exercises you have recommended. Thank you.
Thanks for this workout! I really appreciate the links to the moves- it gives me some really great tips and ideas to try out! Happy belated birthday! I enjoy reading your blog and look forward to new posts!

People always say they can’t get out to exercise on vacation, but just as you say, “all you need is your body.” I’m also a fan of push ups and V-ups for my training clients.
If I have no equipment, then it’s surprising what you can do with household items, such as dips using a stool, L-sit for the abs (if you have strong enough arms), body rows under a sturdy table. It’s just about being creative with what you have.
Hey Julie – love your blog! Can you tell me what program/app you use to make your photo collages/text collages?
