We’ve all been guilty of using those text book excuses after failing to show at the gym – I’m too tired… works been crazy. If you’re finding yourself using these time and time again, it may be time to consider a change in your fitness approach. Home gym popularity is on the rise due to the variety of fitness equipment available – a full body workout can now be achieved in the comfort of your own home.
While the gym environment is perfect for some, it may not be for others and we believe a home gym can be worth every penny for a multitude of reasons:
No monthly membership. Buying your own equipment is a long term investment – its a good idea to calculate how much you will be paying over five years with a membership and then compare that to what you would ideally spend on your home gym. For many people it can be a huge saving. You will also save on travel costs depending on where you live compared to your local gym – every penny counts!
Fits into your daily life. Having a home gym means you decide when you work out and it’s far more flexible. You don’t have to worry about how late in the day it is or what the traffic will be like. Having a home gym that you can rely on at any time will ensure that you can fit in your training sessions and stay committed. If juggling kids is apart of your daily life you can involve them! Swap half an hour of TV for a half hour family workout – it’s great for everyone.
You can invest in high quality equipment. Unlike the gym, hundreds of people won’t be turning up to use your treadmill every week, so you don’t have to worry about your equipment wearing out – with proper maintenance, it’s sure to last you. Plus,you will save time adjusting weight machines or exercise bikes – you’re able to keep it just as you like it.
Comfortable & private atmosphere. While some people thrive off working out around others, its completely normal to be put off by this element of the gym. Working out at home gives you complete privacy – binge that box set while burning the cals or turn up the volume and sing along to some motivational music – whatever works for you!
Buying your own gym equipment may seem costly and intimidating at first, but over time the initial investment may be far more inexpensive than paying the rest of your unused 24 month gym membership.
