I am thankful today for my Home Gym. It has taken me years to acquire the pieces. Some the result of fitness fads. Others backed by intensive research. And then the old standbys. Bands, medicine balls, kettlebells, dumbbells, etc. A variety of equipment but all sharing one purpose: to get me in shape. When it rains, they are there. When the gym is closed or bad weather keeps me from going, they are there. Always providing a way to exercise without excuse. Of course, excuses are sometimes found, but at least its nice to know I have the means to not give into them if I so choose.
