Are you one of those people that struggles to get to the gym? Maybe you’re a victim of your excuses?
WELL – I THINK IT’S TIME YOU CONSIDER WORKING OUT AT HOME!
I have been working out at home for 2+ years now, and I am a HUGE proponent of it! And here’s why…
It takes WAY LESS TIME! My biggest difficulty when I was trying to work out in college or when I was a technician after college was getting to the gym, getting my workout in, and then getting home! A
You don’t have to look “cute!” There’s something REALLY awesome about not worrying about what you wear. Some would say that it shouldn’t matter
You can BUST a MOVE, my friend! Ever been at the gym and just wanted permission to completely and utterly ROCK OUT!? Ya – me too! Sucks having to contain your inner rock star doesn’t it? Well, if you’re at home, you don’t have to contain yourself! You can blast that music as loud as you want (okay, within reason – we don’t want your neighbors to kill you!) and you can bust a move or sing along as much as you want!

It’s a Judgment-free Zone! I know for many people that are new to working out, going to a gym can be intimidating. I mean, that idea in and of itself turned into a business formula for places like Planet Fitness with their whole “No Gym-
You can provide your own entertainment! We talked about you busting a move earlier! But what if the big game is on? What if you want to watch your favorite TV show or movie? Ummm – who says you can’t do that AND get your workout in? Whether you’re a music listener, like to watch TV or movies, or I have friends that like to listen to audiobooks while they
You can provide a GREAT EXAMPLE to your family! This is a huge bonus! I know so many moms, grandparents, older siblings who want to set a good example to the people in their life by getting healthy. What if not only could they see you getting healthy, but they also could see you working out? Working out at home sets a great example for your family. I have a friend who’s little boy will actually put in her workout DVD and say “I workout now too!” after she’s done. If that’s not setting a great example I don’t know what is!
There really are NO EXCUSES! I’ve totally been that person who got to the gym after work and forgot my
