BoxLife Fitness Training #290: TONAL HOME GYM
The following are some of the things that I learned from my time at BoxLife Fitness Training #290:
1) There is no such thing as a bad gym.
If it’s not perfect, then it doesn’t need to exist.
2) You don’t have to go to the best gym in town or even in your city if there isn’t one close by.
3) A good gym will give you all the tools you’ll ever need to get in shape.
4) Your local gym may be better than others around you, but they’re probably not going to offer everything that a true personal trainer can provide.
5) Don’t let someone else tell you what type of exercise works best for YOU!
6) Gym memberships are expensive and they come with a bunch of crap that most people don’t really want.
7) You shouldn’t pay $100+ per month just to use a treadmill.
8) You might think that working out at home would be easy, but it’s not.
9) Working out at home is great if you’re looking to save money, but it’s still not the same as actually going to a real gym.
10) Working out at home is definitely easier than working out in a commercial gym.
There’s really no need for you to pay $100+ per month for something that you can do for free in the privacy of your own home. I get that there are some basic things you need in order to get a good workout such as running shoes and workout clothes, but other than that it’s all up to you! A good pair of running shoes can last you a pretty long time if you take care of them and there are some great deals out there on workout clothes. In fact, you don’t even need to pay full price for any of it because you can get most of your workout gear from Garage Sales, Ebay, or even online garage sales!
As far as getting a good workout, it’s pretty easy nowadays with all the information that’s available on the internet. There are literally hundreds of thousands of websites out there with some pretty in-depth information on anything related to fitness. You can spend as much or as little time as you want researching all this information and more to get the exact type of workout that’s right for you.
As far as gyms themselves go, it really just comes down to personal preference, but I would definitely advise against paying a monthly fee at one just because there are cheaper and better options available to you. I can’t imagine there are too many people that would pay for something they’re not going to use on a regular basis.
A lot of people are under the impression that they need to go to the gym and spend $100 per month in order to get in shape, but it really doesn’t have to be like that at all. Don’t fall for the “I have to spend money in order to save money” trap because it’s just not true. Save your money and buy some shoes instead.
Working out doesn’t have to be boring, tedious, or expensive. All you really need is a good pair of running shoes, a few changes of clothes, and access to the internet. Everything else is just a recommendation.
Good luck and have fun getting in shape!
