Why I recommend you to build your own home gym instead of joining a public gym?
The very first logical reason is you will keep spending your money as membership fees in a regular gym for rest of your life, or build your own gym by spending very less money compared to that. Plus, you will have complete ownership of the gym equipment. You can invest in the equipment of your choice.
Membership gyms are pure business, the fees keeps on increasing year on year, and they don’t give a shit if you don’t turn up to the gym even once after you have paid them quarterly, half yearly or annual membership fees.
Also, as per my observation personal training is largely a myth. They will guide you for a first few weeks and will leave you on your own once a new member joins in.
In the age of internet you can have a personal trainer right inside your mobile in the form of an app or YouTube Videos.
By having your own personal garage gym you can ditch the long queues at treadmill and other equipment stations.
At your home gym you can be more safe in terms of health and hygiene. You will have access to gym round the clock and workout according to your own convenient time, even at midnight.
Most of the gyms are closed on a holiday, and sometime you feel like working out even harder when you have no office and any other engagements. A home gym is a savior in such situations.
You will also get to save the travel time from home/office to gym and back.
And most importantly, you will never have to listen to music of anyone else’s choice. How cool is that!
