Do you have a gym membership?
If yes, then how much do you pay? $20-30 bi-weekly?
Are you using it enough to get your money’s worth, or would that money be better spent on gym equipment for home?
I am lucky that I have a gym where I work because it is very easy for me to fit in a workout over the course of the day.
But if I did not have that gym then when are where would I train?
At home of course. I do not have a lot of room, but it is so much more convenient to slip down to my basement for a solid 20-30 minute workout, than travelling to a gym. Also, if I want to change it up I can always just walk out my door and go to a park or sports field near my home.
Think about how much time is spent just getting to the gym and back home. Travel time,
parking, sharing equipment, chit chatting…the next thing you know your 30 minute workout took you well over an hour to complete.
If you are pressed for time then it is easy to see how taking an hour out of your day to workout is not really sustainable over the long term. Meaning, your trips to the gym become more infrequent and the next thing you know you have not been there in over a month.
But you are still paying for your membership.
If you want to get away from your gym membership and train at home then here are some past posts on home equipment and workouts.
Let me know if you have any questions.
