I have 3 kids myself and it's too expensive to go to the gym and pay for the childcare there, blah to how that's set up lol I belonged to a gym when we lived in FL and it was a competitive rate that included childcare. I loved it there!
I have an elliptical, swimming pool, free weights, exercise bike and stair stepper at home. The mini stair stepper is affordable and easy to hide from the kids.....the others I got from freecycle in my area...except the pool
My husband also has a bowflex but I really don't like to fool with it much. I should but have no idea what I'd start with lol
Do you have an exercise tv channel like Fit TV? I do those programs sometimes. I also check out magazines like Shape, the WW mag, etc to check out different exercises I can try. If you have Netflix you can rent exercise dvds too...instead of going off of that one.
I get bored easy so I switch it up when I'm feeling myself not want to do it.
