Going to the gym is never easy. No, I am not talking about working out, I am talking about the simple act of visiting a gym.
Once you reach the gym the hard part is over, and working out is not an issue anymore.
If you can force yourself to get out of bed and drag yourself to the gym door, the battle is won.
No, I am not exaggerating nor am I kidding. It is a reality and I know many people would be nodding their heads in agreement right now.
There are many reasons people avoid the gym. Some of these reasons are legitimate and others are just silly excuses we make to get out of visiting the gym.
My gym is too far
It is a legit problem that many people face. If your gym is far away and your daily commute can be a pain.
The weather is not favorable
Many a time it may happen that the weather outside does not permit you to go out of the house. Be it rain, extreme cold or scorching sun, going to the gym is next to impossible.
I don’t have time
The work life and professional obligations leave less time for themselves. In this little time, people do not wish to waste it on the commute back and forth to the gym.
My gym clothes are dirty.
Like, seriously? If this is your reason to give up on gyming, I don’t know what to say.
It’s been four days and I am yet not slim
Wow. There is nothing I can say to beat this argument.
I skipped the cake, so I don’t need to workout today
Only if the world would run that way, then everyone could skip a meal and be fit forever. But sadly, that is not the case.
I just got my hair done
Well, you absolutely cannot waste all that money spent in the salon. But are you waiting for a bad hair day to get into your gym gear?
My cat needs me
The gym does not have wifi
Now, this is a real problem. I know how difficult it can be to live without social media. If you cannot flaunt your gym look to the world, what is the point?
My phone’s battery is dead
Another real and unbeatable problem. Yes, this has been a reason we all have postponed some stuff in the past.
I am injured, I got a paper cut
You better take care and get some bed rest.
I forgot my earphone
So, why don’t you workout without them? Okay, I heard it. Sorry.
The People Buffet
The kind of people you meet in the gym is yet another nightmare. The loudspeaker, the chatterbox, the machine hog, the guy on the call, the find true love or the know-it-all, they all make life so much more difficult for the others.
What is the solution?
Believe it or not, people do use these excuses to avoid the gym. This is why less than 10% of Indians get exercise.
Well, we can all agree that visiting a gym religiously is not a feasible option for everyone. But that does not mean we should give up on our health. The gym can be avoided, exercise should not.
The simple solution to these problems is Home Gym.
Why visit the gym every day when you can just get a gym set up at home? I know what you are thinking, it does sound fancy and expensive. But that is not entirely the case. Though home gym is fancy but it is not expensive at all. You do not have to go around buying super sophisticated pieces of equipment or turn your house upside down.
The simplest way to go about it is Renting. You can just rent the essential workout equipment required to get you in shape or shed those extra kilos at your home gym. When you exercise at home, you feel comfortable and confident about your progress.
And the best part is that as you go along the workout path your requirements may change and so can your equipment.
It is not important to visit the gym every day and spent hours at a stretch. But, what is important is paying attention to your health, your fitness, and your wellness.
