Not having enough time is the most common excuse people use to avoid working out. Working out at home means you save time by not having to drive anywhere and allows for more time to be spent exercising instead of traveling. Bad weather conditions could also interfere with your workout schedule. Most of the workouts Beachbody offers are 30 minutes, everyone can find 30 minutes.
With an at-home-gym, there is no monthly membership payment or any fees to pay. You could be saving a substantial amount of money on gas by doing your workouts at home. Most of the workouts come with bands so not necessary to go out and buy free weights unless you want to.
You can spend more time focusing on your movements and engaging your muscles properly instead of focusing on the people around you. Working out at home means there is no one looking at you. If you are overweight or self-conscious, you can feel good and workout at whatever pace you want. The only one there to compete with is you!
You can ensure that the equipment is up to date, clean, safe, and that it fits the needs of your specific workout goals. You never have to worry about a stranger leaving a puddle of bacteria filled sweat. Many gyms can be hot beds for infections like staph and MRSA and there is just not enough staff to clean the machines after every use.
You can work out when it fits into your schedule. Maybe you have small children and carving out an hour of time to work out, plus time driving to a gym is just not an option. Working out at home allows you to work out in segments if you have to throughout your day. You can pop in your favorite workout video while waiting on dinner to cook or even after putting the kids to bed! Having the flexibility of working out at home will help you to feel more relaxed which will ultimately help your body burn more calories because stress builds cortisol. Not to mention saving on child care costs.
Working out at home enables you to spend more time with family. Incorporating your family into your workout routine not only brings you closer together, but enrolling them in your workout goals will help motivate you to achieve them. Children emulate their parents– you may find soon your little ones are trying to work out with you.
Your belongings are safe from theft instead of sitting in a locker room where you have to pay extra for a lock. You avoid running the risk of your keys getting lost or stolen while they are hanging on a key rack that people you do not know have access to during your workout.
Not having to leave the house means you can work out more often and with more consistency making your workout more effective. This will help you stay on track with your goals and maintain a routine on a daily basis.
Working out at home means no noisy distractions. You can yell, scream, grunt –even cry as loud as you want. You can listen to music of your choice and blast it as loud as you want. You can even watch TV, listen to an audio book, or follow your favorite workout video without interruption.
Your home gym is open every single day of the year, any time you are available to go! There are no time restrictions on the machines, no lines, no distractions, and most importantly there are no excuses stopping you from getting in a good workout.
If you are really serious about getting in shape and staying in shape, your mind is already thinking long term anyway. Because getting healthy and staying fit requires a lifestyle change. What better way to invest in yourself– long term– than to purchase your very own personal workout program that is available for you to use whenever and wherever you want.
Now do you see why so many people are beginning to workout at home? If you are interested in these benefits, now is the time to take full advantage.
