Let’s face it, these are uncertain times. We all want to make the best choice for ourselves and our families. With the newly imposed expectation to practice #socialdistancing it sounds like the perfect opportunity to get fit in the comfort of your home gym.
Keep reading for some of the benefits of having your gym at home:
Reduce Germ Exposure
Commercial gyms are filled with germs. At home, you at least know who has used the equipment and can control how clean you keep it.
Not only can you choose workouts that best fit your schedule, you will also save time driving to and from the gym or even waiting for your favorite piece of equipment.
Wear What You Want
At home, no one is going to care whether you are wearing your pajamas or the hottest new yoga pant. Working out at home allows you the freedom to wear whatever you want.
Choose your Music
Music is an awesome motivator to get through a workout. Being at home allows you to listen to your favorite playlist at whatever volume you want. Bonus-you don’t have to wear annoying earbuds that fall out.
Save Money Long Term
Depending on how much equipment you need, working out at home will be a big money saver over the long haul. You won’t have to worry about a membership fees.
With the popularity of body weight workouts, you need only a small space to get an effective and affordable full body workout.
Many at-home fitness enthusiasts use multi-purpose equipment like dumbbells, resistance bands, a yoga/stretching mat, or kettle bells. You can pair those along with a cardio piece such as a treadmill, an elliptical, a bike, or a water rower.
While there’s obviously an initial cost for investing in equipment, over time it is cheaper than paying for a gym membership.
