Home Workouts Vs. The Gym Workout
I used to be a hardcore gym guy. If someone had told me what I’m about to tell you, I would have thought they were crazy. There was NO WAY I was going to give up the gym! I can honestly say, two years later, I don’t think I will ever go back.
I broke down the pros and cons in the video, but let me give it to you on paper. Chime in if you have any other reasons for either side. I’m going to be 100% honest here.
Pros of the gym instead of the home workout:
Get to talk with friends
Get to see members of the opposite sex
Get access to all the cool machines and equipment
Get a chance to “Get Away” for a few minutes
Cons of the gym instead of the home workout:
Time consuming driving, preparing and waiting for equipment
Sweaty equipment, just not from you
Using the lockers (Thieves love when you do this)
Law Of Adaptation – Seeing results to start but then a drastic slowing
Pros of the home gym
Can save time, all you have to do is go into your room to workout
Workout while the kids nap
Save money – No gas needed, no monthly fees
Have your own equipment to sweat on
Gradually build up your equipment as you move on to different programs
See continuous results as long as you choose a scientifically proven program
Get your family involved and share the benefits of health
Cons of the home gym
Takes some time to build up your equipment
Unless you have a partner it can get boring working out by yourself (This is why challenge groups work so well)
Don’t truly get “away” for a few minutes
There you have it. Maybe it’s for you, and maybe it’s not. I can tell you though it’s honestly worth giving an honest shot. I don’t mean for a day, give it an honest month time and see what you like best.
Here’s the follow-up post on the Law of Adaptation. Stay safe everyone.
