    Google simplefit for strength training and buy/make a pull bar
    Make an adjustible sandbag for variety
    Sprint outside or at a track
    Buy a "good" yoga dvd

    Rosstraining.com has a book called never gymless that is pretty good.

    Make or buy a sandbag as well.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
    PS
    Don't forget to play!

    Go for circuit training workouts so you get the strength and the cardio at once. Plus it increases you HGH naturally.

    My go to circuit workout is:

    Circuit A:
    Pull Ups
    Push ups
    One Legged squats
    crunches

    Circuit B:
    Handstand push ups
    Coffee table dips
    Lunges
    Planks

    You can do this circuit with nothing but a pull up bar. Just don't get the iron gym pull up bar, they suck!

    For just about any body weight program, the only piece of equipment that is hard to improvise is a pull up bar. A door way model is maybe $20. Then, your house is your gym.

    Alternatively and even better, throw the front door open and head outside. Find a playground or fitness station (or whatever they are called). Run, sprint, play, balance, climb, using available equipment.

Head to a playground or park nearby and use the bars they have. Focus on explosive movements and you'll get an even better workout in less time. Example:

    Plyo pull-ups
    Bar-to-chest (high) pull-ups
    Clap/Plyo push-ups
    High box jumps
    Burpees
    Sprints

    Do all of those regularly and that's all you'd need for killer workouts and you'll probably actually see better results than being in the weightroom: in both physique and power.
