If you want to commit to a fitness lifestyle but your current lifestyle and commitments keep you from getting to the gym, we may have a solution for you.
Will Sutton, owner of World of Home Fitness on Abercorn Street in Savannah, says there is a way to make sure you can squeeze in a workout, no matter what life throws at you.
"The benefit of having a home gym is you can just wake up and workout or when you get off work you can work out," said Sutton. "You don't have to go home and get ready go to the gym and then go back home. It is very convenient."
While it is an investment upfront, in the long run owning a home gym can be cost effective and save you money on unused gym memberships.
So where do you start?
"I always say start with a treadmill, that way you get your cardio in and then you can build on after that," said Sutton. "Get you some strength equipment, dumbbells and a bench."
By having your fitness equipment ready at home you never have an excuse not to workout.
Once you get into a home fitness routine, Sutton says you will be motivated to exercise regularly.
"People don't realize, working out is like a drug," said Sutton. "When you are done working out, you feel amazing. It is a very euphoric confident feeling to workout and you feel better."
So if you're a person with many daily commitments and can't make it to the gym all the time, then you may want to consider investing in a home gym.
It is important to do proper research on gym equipment. You do not have to buy expensive items for your home gym if you don't want too. You could buy basic weights and a bench to start off with and then get more equipment as your financial situation allows for it.
