Contrary to popular belief, training from home doesnt mean an automatic sacrifice of results. While many people believe that the distractions will prove too much, I have seen fantastic results with my clients that work out from home.
Determination and the right attitude are all you need to get your workouts started that will happen in the gym or at home if you want it enough. Then its all about creating a good workout plan.
So, where you do you begin? While your average gym might have all the high-tech kit, its easy to put together the ultimate home gym kit list for serious results. I would recommend:
This kind of home gym set-up wont cost the world - you can probably pick everything up on the list for the same cost of a couple of years of local gym membership. Two years down the line and youre in profit!
As I mentioned already, the biggest problem that my clients come across with working out at home is a lack of motivation. Its much easier to skip a session when your gym is only a few yards from your sofa. Whilst it may be harder to get motivated at home, it is often actually easier to get a workout done as it saves bundles of time. Even if your drive to the gym takes just 20 minutes each way, when you are busy and life is chaotic this can be the stretch that will stop you from training.
With working out from home, you can do it on your own time and schedule after the kids are in bed, during their afternoon nap or even early in the morning before everyone has woken up. If you work from home, you can fit fitness around your deadlines to give a positive, healthy break away from your desk.
Its good to keep your body guessing with a flexible workout that can take place at any time of day alternatively, you may find that setting a certain time works best for you and thats great, too. Theres nothing like starting the day with a workout to get you mind and body pumping, and to improve your fitness in your own time. The feeling of achievement is unparalleled.
