The gym used to be the premier location for fitness. It’s where people go to lift, sweat, burn, blast, tone, strengthen and build their bodies. The gym has it all, but you don’t use it all. Maybe you don’t have the time, or you only want to focus on specific things. Reality is that the gym is optional, and it might be time to move on!
The world is your playground, and it’s time to start treating it that way. With so many options for body weight exercises, any environment can become a gym for you — your home, your office, the stairway, the park. Weights, resistance bands, kettle bells and yoga mats are all equipment you can also buy and always have on hand to take your workout routine anywhere. Once you step out of the gym, you begin to see a world of possibilities for getting fit.
13 reasons you may want to reconsider your gym membership
Time. Let’s be honest, going to the gym is time consuming no matter how close you live. First you have to change. Then you have to drive. Then there is traffic. Or you take a train or walk to the gym and there are delays, or the streets are crowded. It’s an exhausting process, especially since it takes just as much effort to get home afterward. Exercising at home or at a nearby park allows everything you need to be a step away. We live in a fast-paced world, so utilizing your time properly is important. Don’t travel long distances when you don’t have to. You can get the same results you get at the gym from exercising at home or outdoors!
