The advantages in building your own home gym

New York City is a great place to live in. However, a lot of living spaces in the city are pretty small.  But that shouldn’t stop people from trying to build their own home gym.  Besides, there are plenty of furniture and equipment that can double as workout fixtures.d0edde2a583089c7633f2c08c807834a--home-gym-garage-garage-office

So, if you’re thinking twice about setting up your own home gym, don’t.  It’s doable, and there are a number of wonderful advantages to having one.  Let’s take a look at some of them.

Affordability:  Don’t let the initial cost of buying weights and equipment may deter you.  They’re investments.  Imagine you won’t need to apply for a gym membership again or have it renewed at the end of every year.  And if you have a car, a home gym saves you gas money.

Convenience:  Not only does a home gym allow you to work out in the convenience of your own home, if you’re anything like me, you’ll also be spared from sharing the gym with many rude people who hog machines and leave weights all over the place.

Customization:  My favorite part about owning a home gym is that you can create any gym you like.  If you’re into MMA or boxing, you can get a heavy bag and hang it in a corner.  You can also have a yoga area and a CrossFit-style HIIT space.
