8 Reasons to invest in a home gym
Have you grown sick of the hustle, bustle, and sweat – stained walls of the typical commercial gym?
Do you find the travel time associated with getting to and from your local gym affects the amount of sessions you can get in each week?
Are you simply fed up of paying through the nose for facilities that you have to share with others?
If you answered yes to any one of the above questions, it may be the time to consider creating your very own personal gym at home.
Despite the misconceptions that only the rich and famous are privileged enough to own a home gym. Home Gym Solutions can offer a selection of different home gym services and design packages to suit all budgets and requirements.
Here are just some of the reasons you may want to give it some serious thought.
1. Exercise whenever you want
It’s true that there are gyms that are open 24/7, but these are often budget gyms with questionable trained staff and poor quality equipment. By building your own home gym, you can exercise whenever you feel like it, even if it’s the middle of the night!
2. Bespoke your gym
At your local gym, you’re limited to the equipment they have on offer, and it may not always meet your standards or expectations. By installing your own home gym, you’ll have complete control over your purchases, so you can choose the best quality equipment to match your budget, and the specific kit to suit the sort of workouts you enjoy.
3. No sharing!
You often have to queue to use particular machines at gyms, which can get tiresome, particularly if you go at peak times. You’ll never have to wait to use a bit of kit again when it’s all your very own! You won’t even have to share it at all, in fact.
4. No wasted time travelling to and from the gym.
Even a short drive can cut 20+ minutes out of your day. Time spent driving to and from the gym is time that could have been used in your workout. It is also time that can sometimes put you off.
5. No Membership Fees
Once you’ve paid for the gym installation, you’ll never have to spend another penny on it if you don’t want to. You’ll be able to get a great workout for free at any time! Even better, you could use the money you save on membership fees, and hire a personal trainer instead!
6. Blast Your Own Tunes
Without meaning to sound too old here, sometimes the repetitive pop music they play in gyms can drive you a little crazy! especially if you’d rather work out to some hardcore rock or classical music! More importantly, you won’t have to wear your headphones either, because you can just blast whatever music you fancy through your own sound system.
7. Workout when the kids are sleeping or playing without needing a sitter.
Being a parent has its sacrifices – don’t let your workout be one of them. Exercising at home allows you to be around and available while the kids are sleeping or at home with you. No need for babysitting or paying more for gyms with childcare services. Plus, allowing your kids to see you work out and make better lifestyle choices can inspire them to also be healthy and more active.
8. No Excuses & therefore better results
Having access to your online or in-person personal trainer in your very own bespoke gym, in the comfort of your own home will crush any excuses you could possibly think of for not working out! You’ll be on the steady path to great health & fitness in no time!
Having a designed bespoke home gym is a more viable option now than ever. For many families, a return on investment can be seen in as little as three years (based on savings made from an average family gym membership costing approximately £150 per month).
Combine the savings in petrol driving to and from the gym with the time saving convenience of having a gym on your doorstep and it’s easy to see why an increasing number of people are pursuing the home gym option.
Home gyms are always available and ready when you are and allows you to work out in the most comfortable and personalised environment available – your own home!Back to main blog
