If you have ever stayed at a hotel and took advantage of their indoor gym then you know how great it is to roll out of bed and walk down a hall a few feet to workout. That might have been the inspiration for you to set up your own home gym. You had the space in your garage or spare room to put in a treadmill and perhaps some other exercise machine equipment. Then you were good to go. What happened? Over time those good intentions faded away and you were staring at those bulky pieces of equipment with zero motivation for using them. Just owning gym equipment isn’t going to help you shed those pounds. This is why you should give a second thought to joining a gym. The benefits of joining a gym can be summed up in four major points: Motivation, support, classes and equipment.
Consider the equipment you’ll find at the typical gym. There will be plenty of variety to choose from. Whether you’re working cardio, machines or free weights you’ll be able to move from circuit to circuit without ever getting bored. Along with the variety of equipment you should find a gym that also has a wide assortment of classes for you to enroll in. Most gyms offer these classes as part of the membership. These are wonderful experiences which guarantee you’ll get a complete, structured workout. At the same time you’ll be meeting like-minded folks who are focused on the same goals of getting into shape.
That brings up the issue of motivation. If you’re paying a monthly fee for a gym membership you’ll be more likely to use that membership so as not to let it go to waste. Carving out time to go to the gym several times a week is going to have you feeling a lot better and its great bragging rights, too! As for support, you’ll get that in abundance at the gym whether you hire a personal trainer or not. There will always be somebody on hand to show you the ropes literally and figuratively. This will insure you’re working out the right way.
