Off Topic – Home Fitness Center verses other Gyms

offtopicgraphicsWritten by Nathan Wertheimer

It is that time of year when most of us over eat and don’t exercise. It is not a good thing. To keep in shape year round, I suggest making an exercise plan like you. Stick to it and one will succeed with weight loss and have more energy. I have tried it and it works. Before doing any type of exercise routine see your doctor first.

For a while I was off track of my exercise routine. I have finally committed to working out three to five days a week at my home fitness center. It does not take a lot of money to have one. Roughly it cost me $150 with a limited number of equipment. Here is what I have inside my home fitness center an ad roller, some free weights, a mini exercise fold up bike, and use a great exercise mat. There are some new used equipment available online, at Play It Again Sports, and at other retail stores too.

While I like exercising at home, I enjoy watching TV while I’m working out. It makes for more enjoyable experience for me. Plus, it takes my mind off of exercising. I tend to keep the equipment out which is already to be used in the morning when I get up. In the afternoons, I find I’m too tired to work out and leave it for the next day. With the morning, it works better for me. When you work out you must decide and keep that goal

The alternative to a home fitness center is your typical public or private gym. One needs to find the best one to suite your needs. One can pay from around $150 – $400+ per year with some additional fees too. Plus, you have to get in your vehicle to get to the gym on an average basis. I’m not a fan of wasting money. Get your money worth by routinely going to the gym. No excuses, please!

A while ago I belonged to Planet Fitness. There are many locations around Central Florida. I called this place the no frills gym. You get what you pay for. Around the first of the year one will see advertisements for this gym. Join for either $1 or $10, then $10 a month after that. Plus there are other fees too. I enjoyed working out at this gym until it did not fit me schedule anyone. What I liked about Planet fitness is the ab roller, free weights, exercise bike, treadmills, and much more. I could always get a great work out from 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Another gym is LA Fitness, which is a high-end fitness center. They offer more than Planet Fitness does. LA Fitness has many locations in Central Florida. What stands out with LA Fitness is that they have a swimming pool at some locations.

Another option is some commercial office buildings have an inside gym for tenants who work inside the building. There is a one time small fee along with signing a disclosure form. These gyms are open 24/7 with a building card access only.

Make a set schedule for yourself to workout into the New Year. Feel good about yourself. So get off the couch and challenge yourself physically.
