Help! Need Indoor Exercises with no equipment

HELP! I live in Michigan and it is so rainy and wet outside that I can't get my power walking in. I don't belong to a fitness club and there isn't an indoor walking area around. I need to do some exercises inside at home, but I have no exercise equipment or videos. What do you suggest?

    In a situation like that I would be becoming best friends with youtube! lol. There are some really good Jillian Michaels workouts that I do on youtube. I also do a whole lot of Zumba using youtube. I can send you my youtube playlist with a bunch of Zumba workouts on it if you want:)

    Other things I can think of are running up and down the stairs (if you have any), dancing, walking in place (maybe there are some Leslie Sansone- Walk at Home videos on youtube)

    I hope this helps a bit!! I never go to the gym and only walk outside with my family....all of my workouts are done at home. Let me know if you want that youtube playlist and feel free to add me if you'd like:)

    I'd love the youtube play list - how do I get it? Thanks so much!
    Create your own WOD, 5 different exercises, little rest in between. When finished do rest for 3 min. Try to complete 3 rounds.

    I absolutely LOVE Zumba. (I use the Wii system) It was the best investment ever. My daughter and I have a great time and burn soooo many calories. Sweat sweat sweat!

    Make your own workout. Do some jumping jacks, jog in place, listen to some good music that makes you feel pumped. I personally like to do ab exercises while listening to music. I do one exercise for a whole song, and then at the next song I switch to something new.

    NerdFitness has some good suggestions, especially here:

    Check out the website, you may find a lot of helpful stuff there. You can also go to and search for exercises that use no equipment.
    Just select the body part(s) you want to work and select "none" for equipment type.

    I LOVE The Firm videos. I had lost my favorite dvd and recently found in on Amazon. Shipped to my house it was only $10. It has 4 separate workouts and in my opinion I feel it more than the 30 day shred or Ripped in 30 and they are more fun. I like my trainers to be moving their *kitten* with me and not just wandering around talking. I also really like Billy Blanks Tae Bo. Fun fun fun :)

    Check the library for videos/Dvds or on youtube you can search for some longer workout videos for free. Oh, and Goodwill/second hand stores. I've found things there.
