There are a lot of reasons to go to the gym: to feel strong, to maintain health, to get out of your house, etc.

And there are also quite a few reasons to avoid the gym. Like the price.

Nowadays, a nice gym costs almost as much as rent. But fear not! Yes, a fancy gym with a smoothie bar and a sauna sound great, it's not always practical.

Plus, sometimes it's just nice to have at-home options for when you can't make it to the gym. Which is why it's good to know that there are plenty of really great, at-home workouts you can do right in your living room.

Yes, that's right. That means you can Netflix and chill AND get your workout on.


Plus, you can avoid those annoying lines at the treadmill or not-quite-sanitary showers. And, you can play your music as loudly as you want.

Basically, it's a win-win for you to work out at home.

You'll be feeling great, and you'll never have to leave your house. Here are some workouts that are perfect for you to do right in your living room.

This workout that only requires dumbbells, by Noam Tamir.

Women'sHealth provided this home workout courtesy of Noam Tamir, C.S.C.S., who owns TS Fitness in New York City. All you need is a pair of dumbbells to do the moves. First, it's three sets of 15 shoulder taps.

Shoulder taps are super easy.

Basically, you're in a push-up or plank position and tap your shoulder with your opposite hand. Make sure to keep your hips stable.

The second movement in Tamir's workout is three sets of 15 squat jacks.

They may sound intense, but they're a simple move that gets your blood pumping. It's very similar to a regular squat, but you're adding a jump for a plyometric move. The next move in Tamir's workout is really great.

Three sets of 12 renegade rows.

Your dumbbells will come in handy with this move. According to Tamir, this move is great for burning fat. The next move is a squat to overhead press.

This move utilizes your trusty dumbbells.

It's also a great move for burning fat and building muscle. It's vital for any at-home workout. Do three sets of 12 reps.

For the dumbbell reverse lunge with a front raise, you'll want to do three sets of 15 reps. For the mountain climber, you'll do three sets of 20 reps. Check out numbers 6 and 7 on Tamir's list for the detailed moves.
