Alright so I’ve been working out at home since the end of 2010, and have cycled into the gym on occasion but I keep coming back to the house, and love it most, I can be silly, blare my music, and have very few distractions…well on occasional my kiddos might need attention during the workout, but usually they aren’t even awake when I workout. Personally I didn’t think about the germs or anything that you might be exposed to at the gym, but there is that if you are a germaphobe then you may struggle at a gym. Here are nine reasons why your home gym is where it’s at this season.
1. You Never Have to Face the Cold
All warm and cozy in your house? Good thing your gym is 10 feet in front of you.
2. Gym Schedules Don’t Dictate Your Routine
Gym closed because of a snowstorm? Shaun T is still waiting for you in your living room, shouting, “Let’s GOOOO!” You won’t have to miss a chance to “dig deeper”.
3. You Don’t Have to Care How You Look
Rocking polka dot leggings with a striped sports bra? Haven’t brushed your hair? Does it matter? Nope. (Unless you’re going to take an Instagram selfie later…then you might wanna do a booger check.)
4. The Germs Are Your Own
With flu season in full swing, it’s an absolute blessing that you don’t have to worry whether the super-sweaty guy in the bro tank wiped down the treadmill. Instead, you get to swim in your own sweat and worry about cleaning it up after The Chew.
5. Results and Recovery Are as Far Away as the Kitchen
There’s nothing worse than when you’ve just finished an intense workout and have to wait an hour or more to down your favorite post-workout fuel. Lucky for you, your Recovery Formula is a just a hop, step, and skip away.
6. Make Any Weird Grunts or Faces You Want
Worried about those noises you make when you’re pushing yourself to the limit? Don’t sweat it! Go ahead, let out a triumphant yell every time you finish a superset.
8. Your Personal Trainer and Cast Members Become Your New Best Friends and Workout Buddies
Whenever Tony tells you to “Bring It,” Shaun T tells you to “Dig Deeper,” or Sagi tells you to “Beast UP!” you most certainly do. The trainers always say the right things to get you to push harder.
9. When You’re Done, You can Sprawl Out On the Floor and Catch Your Breath.
Whether it’s 25 minutes, 30 minutes, or an hour-long workout, when it’s over, you get to sprawl out in all your glory, no need to worry about whether or not the floor is gross or who might step on you.
