I used to love going to the gym but my life has gotten busy and time had to started to slip away. I eventually stopped going to the gym because of this. But I don’t regret it at all. Working out at home has made my life so much easier. To show you the difference let me give you a run down of my typical trip to the gym.
I would get changed, fix my hair (because you have to look good at the gym, I mean the girls looks great?), hop in the car, drive for 15 minutes, workout, drive for 15 minutes, get home. Pretty typical workout. But did you notice the time cost of going to the gym versus staying at home? That’s 30 minutes of wasted time commuting in my car. Not to mention the time it took me to get changed for the gym. If I had stayed at home I would have been ready in a snap! Advantage #1 Going to the gym takes committing time where as working out at home doesn’t.
The second reason why working out at home is better is that there are other people inside the gym. To further elaborate on that it’s the intimidating guys and the extremely attractive girls. As a skinny guy whenever I walk into the gym I get intimidated by the gym monsters that spend the greater part of their life in the gym. They’re there flexing in the mirror and lifting weights that would crush me instantly. At home I’m the strongest guy there! I love that feeling and I refuse to give it up.
The girls at the gym are a whole different issue. I just can’t stop starring it’s as simple as that! I am constantly finding new ways to capture a glance without them noticing (or anybody else for that matter). This detracts and distracts me from me working out. I love them but I prefer to be able to focus, and don’t tell me to ignore it and focus at the gym. Females are a site to behold. At home all I have to look at is my own mug. Which I like but it’s no Kate Upton look alike. Advantage #2 Not distractions!
The third reason I like working out at home is that it’s cheaper in the long run. At least for me because the amount of weights I can life is not heavier than myself (yet!). Also my local gym membership price is ridiculous. I purchased some cheap weights and a straight bar from a local yard sale (yes mom you did say yard sales are great places for deals). They may not be glamourus but they get the job done. I mainly just do a workout that I found online which is called “the skinny guy home workout”. Sp Advantage #3… Money!!
Overall working out at home is better because I don’t have to commute, I don’t get distracted or intimidated, and for it’s been cheaper in the long run! Join my in my cause to dump the gym and workout at home!
