Thanks to the pandemic, the idea of having your own space at home to work out is no longer seen as something reserved for the elites, like Rock's Iron Gym.
We have been advocating this for some time and are happy to see that more and more people are leaping. Do you still need some convincing? Here are some reasons you might want to build your gym.
Zero commute alone should be enough to stop reading this and start planning. And no, this has nothing to do with the petrol price, but everything to do with time. The amount of time you save by having a gym a few steps from us is priceless.
Home gyms have the potential of becoming family bonding time. Quality time spent with each other, away from screens (minus the one streaming the workout, of course), is valuable time that is becoming increasingly difficult to find.
If you are the few who go to the gym as a social thing, you can skip this one. The rest of us go (half the time we drag ourselves) because we have to exercise. It is seldomly something we look forward to, so we can do without the added social distractions, waiting for machines, screens, etc.
Save On Money:
In the long run (I know it doesn't feel like it when you start), home gyms are cheaper than monthly gym memberships; once you have everything you need (though, do you ever stop building out your home gym?), you start benefiting from not paying monthly subscriptions.
