I think most cost-conscious people would have already considered a home gym to save money.. but what on Earth can you get for $500 right now?Schoolies_2004 said:Yeah fitness first is expensive, how can you say a $60 per month deal is good as well... $720 in a year is good!? For that much you can buy your own decent home gym... and thats just going off the first year! Personally I bought my own equipment, cost around $500, its not as comprehensive as a proper gym but as long as you know the right excercises (which are readily avail. online) you can work all muscle groups... and this is a more long term solution because:
1. Its at home so you dont use travelling as an excuse not to go
2. You've already paid for the eqipment, so money cant be an excuse, its also an incentive to use it because "Ive waisted all that money!"
3. You can work out in da comfort of your own home or where ever, listen to music you like without having to wear annoying earphones while working out etc
4. Using your own equipment, dont have to worry about getting some skin disease or some sh*t off some bogan grub who didnt wipe the eqipment down properly.
5. Like I mentioned in regards to money, one off payment and you have the stuff you need as opposed to paying for fives years $60 per month = Total of $3600. I say 5 years because for guys at least trying to gain muscle, its a long term thing if you want to gain it and then maintain it (realistically longe than 5 years but meh), I think the home gym is a better option! And realistically, do you really think the service your getting their is $3600 worth?
I Dont know about other people, but its alot of money and needlessly wasted when you can have it all for cheaper... or AT LEAST go to a local gym that is usally cheaper and will have a more personalised serviced.
