We all tell ourselves that we want to be healthier. The question is: are we really being true to ourselves, or are we just in an elaborate delusion? Such declarations of being healthier are usually our New Year’s resolutions as a way to start a clean slate to make new and better choices. In order to make good on such well enough meaning resolutions, that could mean going to your local gym and starting working out.
How Many People Actually Live Up to Their New Year’s Resolutions?
Unfortunately, it’s a sad truth that only 10% of people who make resolutions like these follow through with them for more than a few months. Of course, we have our reasons why we don’t go back to working out: too busy with our work and life routine, unable to keep up with the membership fee, unable to commute, and so on. While some of these reasons have some validity, the majority of them could be used as excuses to get out of committing to exercise.
We Need to be Proactive to Try Reach Toward Our Goals
While there is no cure for unwillingness, those who do want to be more active in their health, have options to achieve their goals while not having to commute to a gym or pay a monthly fee. Widely known as the home gym, they are pricey equipment but a worthwhile investment since you can work out whenever you want from the convenience of your home.
Gyms Have Space: Homes Do Not
Before you start to set up a home gym, you probably already realize that there are some constraints. The standard big box gym is an enormous space, filled to the brim with expensive, state of the art equipment. On the other hand, your home likely does not have anywhere near that amount of space for gym equipment. You might not even have an extra room to dedicate to this purpose at all. You also are likely to be on a budget to find portable yet cost effective gym equipment for you and your family to be able to exercise with – all in the comfort of your own home.
Adjustable Weight Benches Can Help You Get There
As far as options go there are plenty of types of home gyms so you can find one that will align more with your exercise goals. Whether you want something to work specific parts of your body or something that can do it all, such as an adjustable weight bench. There is no excuse to put off taking care of yourself.
Bringing it All Together
Just because you may have been somewhat lax with last year’s new year’s resolution, it doesn’ mean that this upcoming year has to be the same. Take the steps you need and get the discipline, mindset, tools, and equipment that you need to follow through and make this the year of your continued and improved health today.
