Are you considering building a bespoke home gym? We might be biased, but we think it’s by far the best way to achieve your fitness goals!
Just why are home gyms so good? There are countless reasons, and we’ve listed some of the biggest below.
Our modern lives are so busy, it can often feel like we don’t have the time to train how we want. That car journey to the gym after work or at 5 AM can be hard to keep up for weeks and months on end.
One of the biggest positives of getting your home gym is the time you’ll save, not on your workout but on the travelling that goes with commercial gyms.
If your 45-minute workout actually takes you 90 minutes when including travel, that’s 45 minutes you’ll save with every home gym workout. Add those up, and you’ve got time to prepare your nutrition and achieve even bigger goals.
Train When You Want
A lot of commercial gyms are now open 24/7, but let’s be honest, do you really want to be going out to a public gym in the dead of night?
A huge benefit of having a home gym is you can train according to your schedule, without having to avoid the local gym’s peak times.
Having the flexibility to train when you want is guaranteed to get you more motivated to train. You can plan your day in advance knowing that you have the time to put in the work.
Also, with a home gym, there’s no need to book workouts or pay a subscription – if you need to miss a session, you can without having to worry.
Train How You Want
Arguably the biggest benefit of having a home gym: complete control over how you train.
When building your home gym, you can pick and choose everything you need to achieve your goals.
- Want to break your marathon PB? Have free use of a treadmill.
- Looking to bulk? Get the free weights you need.
- Want to increase your strength? Build your dream power rack.
There’s no waiting for a go on your favourite machine in a home gym! Plus, there are no rules on what you wear or how much noise you make – so long as you don’t disturb your neighbours.
While it might not seem like much, for a lot of people cleanliness is one of the biggest plus points to having your own gym. No more having to wipe down other people’s sweat and germs!
One of the off-putting things about building a home gym is the potential price, especially compared to a monthly fee for your local. But what if I told you that buying your own kit actually SAVES you money?
Think about how long you’ve been training for, and how much that could have cost you in:
- Gym memberships
- Travel and petrol
