Why Investing in a Home Gym Might Be Right For You


Home gyms are growing in popularity due to the unprecedented events that took place this past year and the uncertainty of the future. In the year 2020, fitness lovers all around the globe experienced the #struggle of at-home workouts and wanted nothing more than a gym to get away to.


You will save money in the long-term


On average, people spend $700 a year on gym memberships. The average cost of a home gym is $2000 ranging from anywhere between $300-$15000. If getting to the gym is becoming more and more complicated, a home gym is an easier solution than you think! Sure the expense is considerable in the short term, but in the long term, it’s a great investment that is going to save you money.


Time is money


Having a gym at your house is going to save you more time than you realize. Just think, in the time it takes you to get up, get dressed, pack your gym bag, get in the car, drive to the gym, find parking, go inside, put your stuff up, and then find open equipment, that’s anywhere from 15-40 minutes to get started at the gym, depending on how far your drive is. Oh, and the drive back home. Having a home gym is going to save you at least an hour a day in time.


Your space. Your rules.


This one is a given. Have you ever gone to the gym and forgotten your headphones? That’s a bad day. With a home gym, you can blast whatever music you want with no interruption. Another perk to building your home gym is that you are able to customize it fully. You can get high-quality, inexpensive equipment that can be 100% personalized to meet your needs. In your home gym, you control the environment; whether you want a complete heating and cooling system or nothing at all, it is up to you. The possibilities are endless. Privacy is another huge factor, and with a home gym you can wear whatever you want and do whatever you want.


Accessibility


You never have to wait for a gym again. Any day, any time, your gym is open and running. No more excuses like "the gym is closed", or "I don't have time", or the personal favorite "there's too many people at the gym". Invest in yourself and your home. Furthermore, the newly innovated racks and storage equipment allow for multiple add-ons and attachments so that even the smallest of spaces can be transformed into mini home gyms like the one pictured to the left. Having a gym at your home also allows for group workouts with your friends any day or time; no memberships are required. As we all know, it’s hard to get everyone together nowadays with busy schedules and endless to-do lists. With a home gym, you can enjoy one part of everyone's daily routine together.
