You can sign up for a membership at a fancy gym or you can fill your garage with expensive fitness equipment, but the truth is you don’t need to spend a penny to get in shape.
Here are five no-gym workout myths and misconceptions, and the facts to debunk them that might make you reconsider your plans.
Myth: It’s impossible to build muscle if I don’t go to the gym.
