Gym Free - the free movements and workouts website.

If you are thinking of going gym free, our team are here to help.  It is a common miss conception that a gym is the only place to lift weights and otherwise work out.  Gym Free is a site dedicated to sharing movements and workouts that can be done anywhere and anytime for free.  Most movements shown will use your own body weight as resistance and can be executed on common household or park equipment.

Although we provide movements that can be done for free, we are also aware that there are certain pieces of equipment that can help with working out.  Therefore our team busily searches the web looking for the best prices on extras such as protein supplements.
