This is a common question from today’s busy people,
“Can I get an effective workout in my home or do I have to go to a gym?
The honest answer is that you do not have to go to a gym. You can work out in your home with minimum equipment and make excellent progress.
Here’s how you do it.
1. Develop a really good plan. Having a plan is crucial. If you hope to catch a workout as time allows, you’ll end up being inconsistent. Pick a plan and use it. Find one on the internet or in a book you borrowed from the library. It doesn’t matter where you get the plan, just get one and stick with it.
2. Commit to that plan. It is true that in-gym training results can give better results on average than in-home training. The reason is simple…if you have to pay for it, you’ll probably be more serious about working out. You can get equal results, however, if you commit to the plan that you choose. Consider how healthy and energetic you will feel.
3. Include lots of variety in your workouts. This can sometimes be more difficult working out at home because you have to motivate yourself rather than being surrounded by people who are determined to be fit. This is a matter of mind. You have to decide to vary your workout routines and this usually makes it easier to stick to the plan.
4. Keep track of your progress. This is where a lot of folks who work out at home make their mistake. When in a gym, you usually track your progress. Keeping a written record actually helps you to stick to a plan. Make a workout chart for your home gym and then keep a written record of everything that you do, every time you do it.
Try to do a little more every day. Some days this will be easy; other days it will be just enough to get the workout completed. What is important, however, is to maintain a mental attitude of progress and success. Remember, at-home workouts can be just as effective as in-gym workouts if you choose a plan, commit to it, and track your progress.
