No Gym? Here's How To Build Your Ideal Body At HomeWith Little Or No Equipment
You usually work out in a gym.
You don't have the money or space to buy any weights.
You have no motivation to work out at home.
You have no idea how to get started.
You don't even believe home workouts can work for you.
Let Me Ask You A Question
Are you working out at home with little to no equipment?
Nothing but some dumbbells, or resistance bands, or literally just your own body weight?
Cool, me too.
And are you thinking...
► “There’s no way this can work."
► “There’s no way this can be effective enough.”
► “LOL! Resistance bands?!? Seriously?”
► “This can't come close to being as good as a fully equipped gym.”
► “This sucks... I’m screwed… why should I even bother trying?”
► “There’s no way I can get the results I want (or even just maintain the progress I’ve already made) without going to a gym or spending thousands of dollars on home workout equipment.”
Cool, because when the COVID-19 lockdown started, I was thinking the exact same things.
Even though I knew better, and I’ve spent 15 years helping hundreds of other people with their own home workouts, this was the very first time I ever found myself in a situation where I no longer had access to a gym.
Which meant, it was the first time I needed to figure out a way to workout at home myself.
Even worse... I had to do it with hardly any equipment available.
Do You Know What Happened During The Months That Followed?
Honestly? Everything went extremely well.
It turns out that all of those thoughts, doubts, and worries from before are bullshit. Because...
As long as you know what you’re doing, it’s absolutely possible AND surprisingly easy to effectively work out at home and get the results you want. Yes, even with little to no equipment.
So what's the big “trick” or “secret” to this, you ask? It’s simple.
All you have to do is take the scientifically proven principles of what makes working out in a gym so effective, and adapt them to your home workouts to make them equally effective.
Because the truth is… you don't need a gym.
You just need a home workout that works as well as an effectively-designed gym workout.
There’s just one big problem…
Most Home Workouts Are Crap
If you go to Google or YouTube and search for “home workout,” or scroll through your social media feed looking for home workouts, do you know what you’ll find 99% of the time?
Just stupid, ineffective, laughable, myth-based garbage that isn’t going to work for you (or me).
It's stuff that will leave you feeling disappointed months from now when your body looks exactly the same as it does today, or potentially even worse if you end up losing muscle.
So... why are typical home workouts so bad?
It comes down to 6 major problems…
The 6 Problems With Home Workouts
Problem #1: They’re too easy for you, and practically useless.
Most home workouts are designed to be “something you can easily do at home” rather than “something that’s actually going to be effective enough to work.”
That’s why you see so many workouts that are filled with stuff like bicep curls while holding a soup can, or body weight squats with no additional weight added, or push-ups against a wall, or other similar exercises that aren’t going to be challenging enough for anyone but the most out of shape complete beginner (and even then, you’ll be ready for something more challenging pretty fast).
Problem #2: They’re too hard for you, and not very realistic.
Don’t you love when you come across a home workout that claims “no equipment needed” and you think “that’s perfect, because I hardly have any equipment!”
But then you look at the list of exercises and it’s stuff like handstand push-ups, 1-arm pull-ups, pistol squats, crazy gymnastic moves that no normal person can actually do, and other super advanced exercises that simply aren’t realistic options for you.
Problem #3: They require equipment you don’t have.
Why do so many supposed “home workouts” assume we all have a squat rack in our living room? And a barbell with hundreds of pounds of weight? And tons of dumbbells? And an adjustable bench? And 50 other things you probably don’t have in your house? If we actually had all of this stuff, we wouldn’t need a “home workout” in the first place.
Problem #4: They're creative, but dangerous.
I’m just going to come right out and say it. If you find a workout that tells you to do inverted rows from a broomstick that’s balanced on the top of two chairs and being held in place via sheer luck alone… run the other way immediately.
This kind of “creative” stuff looks cool in a 5-second video on social media, but what you’re not seeing are the 12,000 people who tried it and damn near killed themselves.
Problem #5: They’re based on myths instead of proven science.
In order for ANY workout routine to be effective, there are certain scientifically proven guidelines that must be in place. For example, how often you’re training each body part per week, the schedule being used, how many sets, reps, and exercises you’re doing, how heavy or light the weight is, how long you rest between sets, how often you progress over time, and more.
And when I see the typical home workouts most people use, it’s pretty obvious that the “expert” who designed it didn’t have a clue what they were doing.
Problem #6: They don't work for the goals you care about.
Pay close attention to this one. You see, most home workouts will make you really sweaty, tired, fatigued, sore, and out of breath after… which is fine if you’re training for some kind of endurance sport or to burn a few extra calories.
But if you’re working out at home because you want to build muscle, get more tone and definition, gain strength, maintain muscle while losing fat, and build an awesome looking body, then these types of endurance-style workouts aren’t going to help you.
How Do You Solve These Problems?
You have 2 options...
Option #1: Search around, waste time, try something, make no progress, get frustrated, and repeat all over again.
With this option, you can look forward to spending countless hours of your time searching through websites, videos, apps, social media, and on and on and on… hoping to find a workout that doesn’t suffer from at least one of those 6 problems.
Then you have to spend the next few months testing it out on your own to see if it actually works, or if it's just another ineffective workout that leaves you looking exactly the same as you do right now (or potentially even worse if you end up losing muscle in the process).
If this sounds like a good option to you, then by all means… feel free to give it a shot.
But believe me when I tell you, that whole experience is going to suck. I know this, because I’ve seen what’s out there. Especially with the COVID-19 situation. I’ve had hundreds of people email me to get my opinion on the home workout they found, and 99% of the time... it’s crap.
Option #2: Make this easy and let me instantly solve it all for you.
For 15 years, I’ve been solving people’s home workout problems for them, and helping them make amazing transformations without a gym or expensive equipment.
And during all of the months after COVID-19 began, I did the same for myself and all of my coaching clients who were stuck at home with little to no equipment for the first time.
And as my inbox continued to fill up with emails from countless men and women who were now in that same position and coming to me for help, I decided to take everything that’s been working amazingly well for me and my clients and put it out there so it can work amazingly well for you, too.

Here's What People Are Saying
"All I have to say is wow!"
I was clapping along with all the points you made in the first few chapters and the value you put into all the exercise suggestions. The knowledge you drop is a necessary read for anyone interested in working out at home, and the exercise suggestions will be useful to refer back to for months to come! I love the simple structure with endless combinations. I’m definitely going to share the link to buy with others!
– Alison Marie Helms, PhD
"I got to keep ALL of the muscle I gained!"
I needed to determine the new exercises I’d be using to replicate exercises that could only be done using a proper gym setup, and this guide gave me multiple “at home” exercises that would provide an equal stimulus to the required muscle group. Jay did all the cumbersome work of conveying every important factor required for muscle maintenance and/or muscle growth, and I got to keep ALL of the muscle I had gained prior to the pandemic. Yes, all of my muscle.
– Zach Farrell
"Allows me to do the same exercises I'd do in a gym!"
I wanted to make the same progress I’d make working out at the gym, and The Home Workout Guide was simple, to the point, and allowed me to do almost all of the same exercises I would do in the gym. The part where you explain the importance of doing reps to almost failure was something most at-home workouts don’t have, and I feel it really helped me push myself and get good results. Now I look pretty darn good if I do say so myself.
"By far the best option for home workouts out there!"
The Home Workout Guide gave me a ton of options for how to create enough resistance even with limited equipment at home. It contains everything you need to continue to build muscle while working out at home. As always, Jay analyzes things from every angle and breaks it down to a really simple to understand format. Definitely get this guide!

Thousands Of People Are Effectively Using The Home Workout Guide
"Solutions to using light weights!"
I needed to maintain my physique without proper gym equipment, and The Home Workout Guide helped me successfully do that against all odds. It provided me with super creative, safe solutions to using light weights and body weight centered workouts. It’s very well organized and the video links help tons, too. Huge thanks for all you do!
"No more P90x, Insanity, or DDP Yoga!"
Before getting The Home Workout Guide, I had no motivation, no equipment, and no proper guidelines. I spent a lot of money on popular home workout dvds, but they are not doable for me and don’t benefit me the way I want to. This guide is a saving grace. Straightforward and no fuss. I am now training smart, and I plan to show you my results in the near future.
– Charles R.
"Clear motivation from a plan that gets results!"
The Home Workout Guide helped me cut out the research phase and go straight to a routine with exercises tailored to every possibility and variation. I really liked all the different combinations you presented ("You can do this, but if you can't, you can do this other thing, but if you can't, you can also do this!"). And I found the equipment advice really helpful, as we now have some advice on the most necessary things we need for our home gym and in order of importance.
– Rebeca M.
"Easily replicate the gym environment at home!"
Both gyms I belonged to shut down at the same time so I found myself with little equipment, no place to exercise, and no exercises that I could recreate at home. The Home Workout Guide solved all of these issues! You give so many options to effectively increase resistance without technically adding weight. That has been truly eye-opening for me. I was worried initially because I couldn't imagine getting enough resistance for the lower body without a squat rack, leg press machine, bar for deadlifts, etc. but my legs have gotten stronger, I have better balance, and my "weaker" side has improved significantly. I've also gotten leaner and stronger overall, and being in the 60 and over age group, I'm very satisfied with that. This guide is worth every penny.
– Mark Cote
"I increased strength more than I did at the gym!"
Gyms closed and I didn't want to give up exercise during the quarantine, and The Home Workout Guide gave me a practical way to work out at home with the equipment I already had. Right now I'm into month 4 with your 3-day split and it has definitely made a difference. I have become stronger and can see a difference in muscle gained in my upper body.
– Jennifer Johnson
"It kept me on track when I lacked motivation!"
I was lacking motivation to adjust my workout plan to lockdown conditions, and this guide allowed me to stay on track with a simple and easy plan to follow using what I've had at home (bands, kettlebell). I loved the simplicity and flexibility.

– Emily L.

The Home Workout Guide showed me how to replicate my gym program and gave me so many exercise options to work the same muscle groups whilst compensating for the lack of heavy weights/resistance. It’s a no brainer if you want to work out at home.
– Kevin M.

I gained weight and had trouble with motivation, and I needed a solid program designed by a professional specific for at home.

– Yuli Oh

– Cory J.

I have no equipment. Is this for me?
Yup! There are tons of body weight options, and tons of recommendations for how to use things you already have around the house to get even more options. And even though no equipment is required, if you happen to want to get a few items (e.g. resistance bands, etc.), I'll give you specific recommendations for the best and most affordable options that I personally use myself.
Is The Home Workout Guide right for me?
If you're working out at home with limited equipment (e.g. bands or dumbbells) or no equipment at all (just your own body weight), then YES... The Home Workout Guide is definitely for you. Male or female. Young or old. This is the complete system of workouts, exercises, and guidelines you’ll need to get the results you want.
I usually work out in a gym. Is this for me?
Hell yes it is! I’ve been lifting in a gym for 15 years, and COVID-19 was the first time I ever needed to work out at home. Everything you see in The Home Workout Guide is exactly what I did myself during that time, as well as with all of my experienced coaching clients who were working out in a gym up until that point.
I'm a complete beginner. Is this for me?
Absolutely! There are beginner workouts included, along with tons of exercise options for different experience levels and strength levels to ensure you’re fully able to use them no matter where you’re starting out. There’s also video examples for each exercise, so you’ll be able to learn exactly how it’s done.

No Gym? No Problem...
"Translate your gym workout into a home workout!"
This is a no-bullshit approach to translating your gym workout into a home workout which will be just as effective.
– Kenneth P.
"It’s easy and laid out for you… just do it!"
I needed a plan to follow, and this guide gave me one. I printed it out and hung it on my wall so it was easy to see and follow. I loved the sequence of workouts and all the different options of how to perform similar workouts at home with different equipment.
– Nichole V.
"I was able to help my clients better!"
I have my own gym, and I was studying ways to help my clients during the Coronavirus peak. The Home Workout Guide filtered the best information and shared it in such a clear, organized, and effective way. It allowed me to help my clients better while they weren't able to come to my gym.
– Bodhi Kenyon
"It gave me structure and mental peace!"
I didn’t know how to put together home workouts with body weight or little equipment, but The Home Workout Guide gave me variety and ideas of what to do. It was simple to understand and use, and I learned that I was causing more stress worrying about what I was missing by not going to the gym. The guide gave me structure and mental peace that lockdown wasn't going to result in losing everything. And after lockdown, this guide can be used for holiday trips, regular gym visits, or even just at home permanently if that suits better.
"Great for lifts you can do without gym equipment!"
I was looking for a workout design I could use on vacation, and this guide provided everything I needed. The exercise examples and video links are gold!
– Dr. Paul K.
"Exercises to do with just bands and dumbbells!"
For me, the most helpful part is having a workout that is achievable. I have limited experience in lifting weights and I find some body weight exercises too difficult. However, The Home Workout Guide gave me a beginner’s routine that I could do with dumbbells and resistance bands, along with advice on alternative exercises. I also liked the examples of good form and always watch them before I do the exercises.
– Diane F.
"Workouts for the best results in a shorter time!"
Before using this guide, my workouts were waaaaay too long and complicated. Your simplified, no-nonsense approach showed me how to work smarter, not harder. You are direct and straightforward, suffer no fools, and tell it as it is. You know what you are talking about and have our best interest at heart. Definitely buy it!
– Jeannie Collard
"It broke down everything with examples!"
I don't have room in my place for an actual bench or barbell set up, so I loved the breakdown of the body weight vs resistance vs weights workouts and the links to how to do certain exercises. You cut through the bullshit and explain stuff in plain terms. It really changed the way I look at working out, exercising and "diets".
– John Keating
"This is the guide you need!"
The Home Workout Guide showed me how to use resistance bands to emulate the workout I was previously doing at the gym. The listing of exercises broken down by body part and equipment was great. If you need or want to start working out at home and have no idea where to start, this is the guide you need.
"Made my previous workouts doable at home!"
I didn’t know how to take the workouts I had been doing and alter them to work at home, but this guide made my previous workouts doable at home. I also liked the diet section, as well as the different setups for how many days a week to work out and which muscles to work on. Get it, it’s definitely worth the purchase!
"Easy to implement into most people's busy lives!"
This guide is awesome! I purchased it because I was already familiar with Jay's outstanding reputation in the fitness world. It addresses so many aspects to training/diet for aesthetics. I appreciated how targeted the information was in the light of the COVID-19 crisis which has either closed most gyms or limited access to them. The information is easy to understand and the workouts and diet advice can be implemented into most people's busy lives.
