Are you looking at getting back into fitness? Maybe fitness is new to you and you're looking for a place to start. There are so many options for fitness out there out there, let's talk about some pros and cons. This is going to be a multiple part series over the next few weeks, so you can make the best choice for you!
1. No Pressure
You can take your time and figure out what you're doing! If a movement or exercise is new to you, you can slow down and make sure you're doing it correctly without feeling like people are judging you.
2. Less Expensive
No gym membership fee! While you may have to pay for an app or some equipment to get started, odds are, working out at home will be significantly cheaper on a monthly basis than going to the gym.
3. Exercise Anytime
Maybe you like working out really early in the morning or really late at night. Maybe you can only get in 5-10 minutes a few times a day or several times a week. When you're working out at home, you can do it whenever!
1. No Group Classes
Group classes can be really motivational! It's great to be with other people who are working towards the same goals as you and can help motivate you when you're lacking motivation.
2. Fewer Equipment Options
Gyms have so many different options as far as equipment goes. If you're looking for a variety of free equipment like kettlebells and dumbbells along with machines, gyms will be able to provide you with a lot more variety than an at-home workout.
These are just a few things to consider when thinking about your fitness and how you want to proceed. There is not one option that's necessarily better than the other - you just need to pick what's best for YOU! Stay tuned for more about this topic!
