Hold up: Did you get the impression that you have to buy an expensive gym membership to tone your body using a piece of fancy equipment? And that's why you've been avoiding working out? Well, you no longer have that excuse. To tell you the truth, all you need is a chair (I'm pretty sure you have one, right?) to get a full-body workout.
A little safety note before we do this: Make sure the chair you're using is sturdy and balanced. When you're working out, the chair should be placed on a stable surface.

Return to start. Now repeat the same move with your right leg. Roll it over the chair and then bend your knees and sit hips back into a low squat. Focus on keeping your back straight. That's one rep.

How it's done: Stand on the side, facing the back of the chair. Set the heel of your supporting leg towards the direction of your kick. Lift your kicking leg over the chair, bring your knee across the body and extend your leg. Keep your heel up and your toes down. Strike with the outside of the foot. Retract the knee and bring your foot down. Now, do another lower side kick. Count both kicks as one rep. Do 15 reps for three sets.
