Now I know we’ve covered a lot of exercises and means of getting fit and strong whilst in the gym, but it’s important to remember that you don’t necessarily have to be in a gym to get fit. Make use of everything around you! you don’t need a treadmill to go for a run, you don’t need a lifting frame to do pull ups, you don’t need dumbbells to get bigger arms, get creative and change things up! you can go for a run round the park or some fields to change up the scenery to stop the same mirror getting boring, if you want to do pull ups find a metal frame or sturdy looking tree although with that make sure it’s sturdy enough to hold your weight, we don’t want you out of training due to silly injuries! Similarly to that, if you want to train some arms or core but it’s a great day out, why not go down the park and do a short workout on some grass with some press ups, plank and sit ups. To make this even better if you can find a sturdy low level object such as a seat of park bench, why not throw some sitting dips in the works and give your triceps a work out too!

You  don’t need to be in the gym to do a beneficial workout, it’s not being close to a gym isn’t a good enough excuse, what’s yours?
