What Are the Benefits of a Garage Gym Over a Membership Gym?

Written by on August 27, 2020 in Exercise and Fitness with 0 Comments

Due to the mass consumption of eating sugar and processed foods and the absence of physical activities, nearly one-third of the population is dealing with the problem of overweight and obesity. And obesity has given birth to many fatal ailments like heart attack, hypertension, diabetes, and some types of cancers. Busy routines and hectic jobs are the most common reasons for this unhealthy eating and an inactive lifestyle. People have no time to go to the gym and do some reps for their healthy lives. If you are too busy with your jobs and can’t follow the gym routine, you can set up a garage gym and do some regular activity at any time of the day. Your home gym, having the equipment of your choice, is a place where not only you but your whole family could do exercise.  There are many benefits of owning a home gym, that we will discuss later, besides some cons like getting bore more quickly, no instructor to guide, and less variety of equipment than a membership gym. Read on to learn about some great advantages of keeping a garage gym.

No commuting when you have your own gym:

There is a lot of lost time when you work out at a membership gym. You spend some precious minutes driving to and from the gym besides dealing with lots of traffic because it’s a rare chance that you find a gym close by. Contrarily, keeping a garage gym means you just have to walk out of your bedroom, through the kitchen, and into the garage which takes almost no time.

Saves money:

When you go to a conventional gym, you spend a substantial amount of money on membership in that gym. If you compare the cost of the money you spend on membership and the cost of equipment you actually need for your garage gym, you will see a remarkable difference and will definitely choose to buy that equipment. Moreover, when working out in a home gym, the dollars you spend on fuel and the parking cost will also be saved and used for some other useful purpose like on a vacation for your family.

Availability 24/7:

Let’s be honest, many times you would have missed your workout because something of urgent nature popped out. The gym timings are not flexible; they have schedules for you that you can’t miss. Additionally, membership gyms are closed on holidays and national days and you don’t have any choice but to skip your workout on that day. Contrarily, if you have set up a home gym, you can do your workout at any time, and every day; there is no schedule to follow.

No dress code to follow:

Conventional gyms ask you to buy some expensive outfits and if you are not in your predefined outfit, you may not be allowed to do your workout. On the other hand, if you work out in your own gym, you are free to wear any workout sweatshirts and workout pants. Exercise is more about how you workout than how you look when you do exercise. Wear whatever you are comfortable with and do your regular workout.

No waiting for equipment:

When you have a garage gym, unlike the conventional gym, you don’t have to stop for others to finish their sets or have to adjust the machines to fit you. Also, there will be no one standing a few feet away, trying to stare you out of the squat rack when you are doing your sets. Your garage machines and equipment are always ready and dialed up to serve you.

Clean environment:

Membership gyms are normally jam-packed and the equipment is a cesspool of germs because every member of the gym left some of his sweat. Imagine how many people use those dumbbells you are using each and every day, or how many sweaty backs rest on those yoga mats you are lying on. You will feel very uncomfortable while using that equipment. But home gyms are free of these germs because you use disinfectant wipes every time after using your equipment. Furthermore, there will be fresh air in your garage gym. In addition to the aforementioned benefits, you can scream when doing intense exercises in your home gym. Also, you can listen to whichever motivational music you like.
