Finding time for fitness is never easy, but could home training provide the answer? From assembling a few pieces of basic training equipment, to setting up a complete gym in a room in your house, at-home workouts could be the key to your fitness.

Benefits wise – there are heaps:

  • No monthly gym fees required.
  • Can be inexpensive if you are just buying the basics.
  • Complete time saver as no commute to and from the gym.
  • Convenience — your training facility is always available whenever you feel like exercising.
  • Lastly, the dreaded queue to get to your favourite equipment – See ya!

Disadvantages – there are also a few:

  • Without imagination you can lose interest easily without a plan.
  • Correct form is vital and without a coach, you are more prone to injure yourself if your form is not correct.
  • There is likely to be a greater range of equipment that you can't afford for your home gym.
  • Social aspect – working out from home can be lonelier than working with others in the gym.
