Are your ready for a home gym? Having a home gym can be great for convenience, but it isn’t for everyone. Some people draw genuine motivation from the group environment of the social gym. They enjoy the expert classes and find respite from working out in gym chat. If that sounds like you, no matter how convenient training at home may sound, it’s probably not for you. If on the otherhand you often work from home and are self motivated and enjoy training alone, a home gym could be the best investment you can make in your quest for good health and a glowing complexion.

Advantages of home gyms:

+ Avoid over crowded workouts

+ No more sharing facilities

+ Gained travel time that would have been spent going to and from a gym

+ The cost saved

+ Convenience

 

Disadvantages:​

– Lack of motivation… you need to find your ‘inner PT’

– No social interation from the environment of the gym

– The home enviroment may prove to be a distraction

– Initial budget £1,000 to £2,000 for a full home gym

– Space required

If you are ready to embark on setting up your home gym, now is the most enjoyable part, designing and creating your workout space.  Tailor your environment to your personality so that as soon as you walk into the gym you’ll pique your subconscious mind to prime you for hard work and success!!
