Should I Join The Gym?
“Should I join the gym?” It is a question that many people face. I will answer this for you here. However, it will be you who will have to decide.
Let’s face it, especially in this day and age. There are not many of us who can afford to spend our money on fitness equipment, right? Yes, that’s correct. However, a gym has the use of almost every piece of equipment.
So, in other words, if it is a good gym, there will be something for you to use within its walls. That is a big bonus, as I’m sure you will agree. That is the number one reason that people join up so that they can use the big range of equipment.
So let’s list the main pros
- The social element.
- It will have you getting out of the house.
- You can use a vast range of equipment.
Now it is Time For The Big Con
As I am saying, there is all of the equipment that you can use, sure. But then you have to add in the cost every month. You should, in my opinion, save the monthly membership fee and invest in some home equipment. I say this because it is a one-time payment.
I mean, yes, it will be damaging to your bank balance. Although, this will not be forever. You will soon recover, and the bonus of it all, you have your equipment there. You can use it when you choose.
Each month, you do not have to have the money to pay for your membership. And, be honest, if things are a little tight one month, it will be easier not to go. And then. When things get hard again, you do not bother to go back. And before you are even aware of it, your journey to a healthier you will stop.
Time May Not Be Your Friend
However, The Gym Does Not Best One Word, Time
Now, hear this, no matter how fantastic the gym is, it does not beat one word, time. Yes, many of us have to rush home from work, rush to change clothes, then rush down to the gym. A workout in itself lol.
When you work out at home, you will have none of this hurrying to have yourself ready in time. You can casually walk to your fitness equipment and work out. Yes, you can do it whenever you choose to do so. It is that simple.
Here, you will find some equipment with which to be healthy or lose weight on/with, OK?
