I choose to workout in my own personal fitness room. It's a room I had built in my garage ( you can see it in the youtube videos). Because of my training methods, circuits and perpetual motion routines, I knew working out in a commercial gym wasn't going to be for me, so investing in putting together my own fitness room was ideal. The fact that I would also be training clients that would rather workout in private was another reason I went with investing in building my own fitness room/gym.
Pro's to building your own Fitness room/Gym
- No travel time to and from the Gym
- No need to wait for equipment
- Best for circuit training and perpetual motion routines
- Less distractions
- Don't have to worry about other people's sweat on equipment
- Requires an initial investment in equipment
- It can get lonely
- No one to ask for a spot
If you decide you want to try putting your own fitness room together, don't think you have to invest a lot of money, especially if you're a beginner. You don't even have to buy new equipment, you can check out Craigslist or just look for bargains online. I'll go into to how you can start putting a room together with all you really need for a few hundred bucks in future posts.
