If you’ve been working out at home, the thought of germ-infested elliptical machines and icy winter roads to the gym make your living room workout bliss that much better. Here are nine reasons why your home gym is where it’s at, and why it’s always better to do your workouts at home.
9 Reasons Why Workouts at Home Are the Best
1. You Never Have to Face the Cold
All warm and cozy in your house? Good thing your gym is 10 feet in front of you.
2. Gym Schedules Don’t Dictate Your Routine
Gym closed because of a snowstorm? Shaun T is still waiting for you in your living room, shouting, “Let’s GOOOO!” Whether you’re doing INSANITY, Shaun Week, or FOCUS: T25, you won’t have to miss a chance to “dig deeper.”
3. You Don’t Have to Care How You Look
Rocking polka dot leggings with a striped sports bra? Haven’t brushed your hair? Does it matter? Nope. (Unless you’re going to take an Instagram selfie later… then you might wanna do a booger check.) It doesn’t matter what you wear for your workouts at home, but you know you look good in some cute athleisure.
4. The Germs Are Your Own
With flu season in full swing, it’s an absolute blessing that you don’t have to worry whether the super-sweaty guy in the bro tank wiped down the treadmill. Instead, when you do your workouts at home, you get to swim in your own sweat and clean up to your hearts content when you’re done.
5. Results and Recovery Are as Far Away as the Kitchen
There’s nothing worse than when you’ve just finished an intense workout and have to wait an hour or more to down your favorite post-workout fuel. Lucky for you, your Recover shake is a just a hop, step, and skip away. The most difficult thing you’ll have to do now is choose between chocolate and orange…
6. Make Any Weird Grunts or Faces You Want
Worried about those noises you make when you’re pushing yourself to the limit? Don’t sweat it! Go ahead, let out a triumphant yell every time you finish a superset when you’re working out at home. You know that the Beast Sagi Kalev doesn’t hold back, so why should you?
7. You Can Literally Roll Out of Bed and Push Play
There’s no better feeling than rolling out of bed and starting your workout five minutes after your Energize has kicked in.
8. Your Personal Trainer Becomes Your New Best Friend
Whenever Tony Horton tells you to “Bring It,” Shaun T tells you to “Dig Deeper,” or Sagi Kalev tells you to “Beast UP!” you most certainly do. The trainers always say the right things to get you to push harder. How can you tell Autumn Calabrese “no” when she reminds you that “You can do anything for 60 seconds!”?
9. When You’re Done, You can Sprawl Out On the Floor and Catch Your Breath.
Whether you spend 25 minutes, 30 minutes, or an hour working out at home, when it’s over, you get to sprawl out in all your glory, no need to worry about whether or not the floor is gross or who might step on you.
