With gyms set to reopen across the country, many people are desperate to get back into their usual workout routine. However, you may find that you’re happy with your new home workout routine and don’t feel comfortable returning to the gym.
Weigh Up The Pros and Cons
If you’re feeling torn about whether to return to the gym or not, you should consider all aspects. You might just have some temporary anxiety about switching up your routine again as you’ve become comfortable with your new one. The gym isn’t likely to be the same environment it once was, which could also put you off rushing back.
One of the main things to consider when weighing up your decision is your gym membership cost against what your home workouts cost. There are so many free online workouts you can do, which would save you a lot of money in the long run. You should consider how much you get out of the gym and whether the payment is worth it.
A home workout is obviously much more convenient for most people. However, for others, a gym is a form of escapism, and it may be easier for them to get a full workout done there. For example, if you have young children and your home is often a little chaotic, you might find it easier to go to the gym for an hour and switch off entirely there.
Although you can do most workouts from the comfort of your home, you will obviously be limited with equipment and space compared to the gym. You may feel like you need the professional equipment and support you get in the gym to really push yourself to your physical limits. If you take your fitness really seriously and need to regularly train, the gym is probably best for you.
