This Sparked Me!

Save your money on expensive gym memberships and invent in home equipment. All you really need is hand weights, stability ball, resistance bands, and a jump rope for cardio. If you cannot jump rope invest in some cardio workout dvds. You never have to buy workout clothes appropriate for the gym because you are doing it at home now. What a savings!!! Bikes are great to have to because you git to enjoy nature while getting fit.

    Its a great ideal, but for most people they will just ignore they have the equipment there. At a gym you know what you went there for and therefore you have a tendency to get it done.

    I enjoyed going to the gym when I went on my way home from work as part of the daily routine but now that I've retired, I'm busier than ever so the home equipment works for me. I can work out whenever I have spare minutes.

    I agree, I prefer having my home gym. The equipment is right there and I manifest to use it rather than think do I really want to go out today or other excuses like oh it's raining or its hot etc etc. Now I just need another room for my gym, my guest bedroom is cramped now. Hum maybe the guest won't want to stay long!! emoticon

    This was exactly what Idid when I was working. Now that I am retired, I prefer to go to the gym because I feel I get a better workout.

    We bought an elliptical machine in 2001, and I have been using it for almost 10 years now. It still works well, it's paid for, and I get a great workout at home. I also own a couple of different weights of dumbbells and a jumprope, and that's all the equipment I need.

    I did invest in a treadmill (we get a LOT of rainy days) and a home gym. If you budget, buy on sale (usually right after New Years) you can get some GREAT deals. Compare the cost of gym membership for 2 years and see wht you can pourchase for that much money.
