During your younger years, you maybe had the dream of longing to be a garage athlete ie; a person who owns and does their workouts in the comfort of their own gym at home whether that be in the garage or a spare room. Having your own personal workout gym at home is very practical especially for those with active lifestyles.
Some of the biggest advantages to having your own home gym include the following –
No commute – First of all, you are literally one or two actual doorways away from your very own personal gym. You have the chance to walk into your gym at absolutely anytime meaning you are going to save so much time in the long run. Now, your exercise routine will only actually take one hour compared to before when you had to drive to the gym, etc. With all that saved time you have more time for more important things in life.
Your gym is open 7 days a week 365 days a year – Get the point? If you happen to miss your gym session due to an unforeseen event, or if you just simply can not get to the gym, with a home gym, well, its right there, all the time! No excuses.
No lines to use equipment or distractions – Do you ever get sick of waiting around to use a machine, most probably. With your own home gym, everything is always free and available. No more waiting around.
Its your gym, you get to make the rules – Feel like dropping the weights? Go for it. Want to blast the music to a crazy level? Go wild. Aint nobody going to stop you. Its your gym.
Save Money – Once you have bought what you need, thats it. No more costs associated with the gym no more pricey gym membership.
Fewer germs – This is one of those scenarios where I say, hopefully. Having said that, lets rather put it this way. Having a home gym has the potential to have fewer germs than a public gym. If you are not on top of your cleaning in the gym then germs will build up and could potentially cause you some problems. Dont fall victim to a very easily avoidable bunch of horrible scenarios. Clean all gym equipment with an alcohol-based cleaner to remove and kill any germs. The floor is no exception too. We bring in tons of germs from outside onto the gym floor where we often do exercises that require us to lie on the floor.
The best way to remove germs on the floor without having to use dangerous chemicals that can lead to air pollution in your home gym is to use a proper microfiber Dredge flat mop. These types of mops dont rely on chemicals. In fact, you dont need any at all to clean to pretty pristine standards.
