Gym Memberships Are A Great Investment In You
Have you been fighting paying for a gym membership? Maybe it’s because you don’t know your way around all the machines, dumbbells and benches. Or maybe you prefer working out in the privacy of your own home. Maybe you just don’t need another expense gym memberships bring.
Studies have shown that it can actually be better for you to work out at a gym. They show that people with gym memberships are more than 10 times likely to complete their weekly workout goals. They are also likely to be more fit than those without gym memberships.
Researchers at Iowa State University tracked 400 fit adults – half had gym memberships for 30 days, the other half that did not for work tracked 90 days. They found that people with gym memberships we’re healthier. The author – Duck-Chul said this is probably due to the amount of different equipment available in gyms compared to home gyms. His found participants without gym equipment people probably lacked in strength training equipment need to challenge your muscles. I think there is more to it than this since you can use body weight to build muscle at home. Pull-ups, push-ups, dips are all great examples of ways you can strength train at home. The problem is these things can get boring while having a wide variety of equipment offers you ways to mix it up and stay motivated.
Another problem I see with working put at home is it’s too easy to blow off your workout. Driving to a gym is a commitment. Once you are there, you have committed to working out. Especially if you have a workout buddy, you will not want to let them down so you are much more likely to show up. You should have a plan when you get there to perform some kind of resistance/strength training. You should have your exercises planned, moving directly from one to the other, not standing around talking to people.
Gym memberships do not guarantee physical fitness but you can see the benefits and stick to a pan. What do you think? Please comment below.
