Home gyms have been around for some time, but the concept has grown increasingly in popularity over the last several years as the structure of our daily lives has changed. Home Gyms can vary significantly in size, equipment, and cost, but all provide the same general benefits, which we'll walk through below.
- Save on Travel Time and Cost: Getting to and from the gym can add significant time to our days, and travel expenses add up over time. Home gyms can reduce both significantly!
- Workout Whenever You Need: Home gyms give us the flexibility to exercise whenever the urge arises. This is particularly great when we only want to move for a few minutes and a trip to the gym doesn't make sense.
- Save Money on Membership Fees: Gym membership fees add up and can disincentivize us from exercising at all. The home gym equipment we recommend is very cost effective and several pieces can be purchased for less than the average cost of an annual gym membership.
- Privacy: Sometimes working out around others can be great for motivation. Other times, we want to have some time and space to ourselves. Home gyms are great for the latter!
While this list certainly isn't all-inclusive, we hope it gets the creative juices flowing!
