Gym Membership?

You want to lose weight, you want to get in shape, you want to feel great and look great.  So, what do you do?  Sign up for a gym membership.  Now, lets be honest, can you get in great shape at a gym?  Yes.  Can you lose weight at a gym?  Yes.  The problem is that most people don’t and get frustrated because either their weight comes back because they didn’t eat the right nutrition or they get frustrated with the crowds.

The default move when people want to get into shape is to go to the gym.   They don’t even think about it, most people think a huge room filled with cardio machines and weights is the path to health and fitness.  But is this the case?  Must we go straight to the gym if we want to get fit, or are there alternatives, maybe even better, cheaper, more effective ones?  Today I want to look at another option: the home workout.  I’ve been doing home workouts   (I said I would never workout at home) for the past 3 years and I have to say, I’ve never got these results working out in a gym for 2 hours a day.  CLICK HERE to watch my P90X/Insanity Transformation Video and shopping list.

The gym has many negatives to it.  First: they cost a ton of money each month and every month.  Second, they can be filled with the kind of people we don’t want to know, or even worse, who insist on staring at us or coming up to us to make conversation when all we want to do is focus on our workout.  If you belong to a gym long enough you will realize that most people are there to socialize and nothing else.  Third, they can be packed full of people so that you often have to weight in line to use the more popular machines, or freezing cold, or blasting the worst music possible.   I remember January thru March was always the worst month because everyone is looking for answers to keep their New Years resolutions.  Forth, they can be staffed by rude or ignorant trainers who insist on telling you what you’re doing wrong (even thought they are fat and out of shape), and what could be worse than the drive home when you’re tired and sweaty and just want to get right in the shower?

For all those reasons a home workout can be the best way to go. You can skip the drive their and back, usually a half hour each day all told, which trust me, adds up over the months and years. You can skip the long membership fees, the paperwork that locks you in whether you change your mind or not, the bossy trainers who think they know best and insist on telling you want to do. You can work out in the privacy of your home, away from staring eyes, close talkers, people groaning and yelling as they do weights. You can adjust the temperature so that it’s perfect, you can play just the kind of music you love as loud as you like, and best yet the kitchen is right there so that you can fix yourself some P90X Results and Recovery formula or shakeology when you’re done and hop into the shower.

Better yet, you can get a quality home workout program like P90X or the Insanity Workout which has been put together by a true expert and that can guide you through your workout so that rather than roam aimlessly about the cardio machines, you are doing exactly what you should be doing from the get go.  Plus, all of Beachbody’s workouts come with a nutrition guide (70% of your fitness and weight loss) and access to WOWY supergym where you will find others working out just like you.
