The number one reason to build a home gym is convenience. No more getting up at 4:30 in the morning in the winter and driving to the gym before work to squeeze in a workout. The winter months are the most popular months at the gym and getting on a piece of equipment is nearly impossible without having to wait. Everytime I had to go to a gym I got disgusted because people don’t wipe down the equipment after they just sweat all over the machines. It’s just one big sweat/germ infested factory.
I decided to take my monthly gym fee and build my own home gym.
If you purchase one good piece of cardio equipment whether it be an elliptical, treadmill or indoor bike, the only things you would might need would be some hand weights, mat, medicine ball, jump rope and motivation.
