How a Smart Garden gym can help improve your health
28/08/2019 - Smart Garden Offices
Home gyms are becoming a very popular lifestyle choice for fitness fanatics, completely changing the way fitness is approached, and all from the comfort of their own home. There is no doubt about it, exercise is vitally important for our health and wellbeing and is so often overlooked due to other constraints in life such as time, cost and flexibility, which is exactly why home gyms are rising in popularity. A home gym has so many benefits so if you’re debating whether or not a home gym would be beneficial to you, the team at SMART have taken the time to list the benefits below.
As exercise rises in popularity, the cost of gym memberships also rises and this can be a barrier for some to fully engage with the idea of joining a gym!
For those of us that do actually make it that far, what can we expect; at worst a lengthy membership contract, or at best, an ongoing monthly fee. How many of us have said that if we commit to the payments we will actually go – too many!
Unfortunately, it can then so often become a viscous cycle of trying to get there enough times to make the membership cost effective, quickly becoming a burden on our time and our finances.
This money could therefore be better spent on creating your very own garden gym, allowing you to create your perfect space to exercise at your leisure, with your favourite pieces of equipment, all from the comfort of your own home.
Installing your very own garden gym cuts out the need to travel to a gym which is a huge benefit when trying to motivate yourself to go and can often be the catalyst not to!
For those that are able to walk to the gym, it can still be a step too far after a long day’s work. Travelling by car not only impacts on fuel consumption but also our time, especially as most gyms are located in busy towns and cities. There is nothing worse after a hard day at work getting caught in traffic and then getting home late. So for many, it is actually the travelling to and from the gym after work that prevents them from going.
With a garden gym, visiting the gym will never be so easy, as it will always be just a few steps from your own back door.
One of the biggest issues with a gym is having to share the equipment which can cause delays in your time as you wait for your turn. Quick sessions can often become lengthy and stressful.
One of the most appealing things about a home gym is their constant availability. Having your own gym, set up with all your own favourite equipment, for use whenever you want, any time day and night, can really motivate you to stick at it and help you get in shape quicker.
A home gym allows you to use a gym on your own terms, fitting in workouts when it suits you and your hectic lifestyle. You could soon be finishing a gym session at home in the time that it would take you to drive to a gym and get into your gym gear!
A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE
Many studies have shown that exercising can dramatically reduce stress levels and the feeling of anxiety. By creating your very own home gym, this will allow you to enjoy exercising as part of your daily routine enabling you to relax and relieve yourself of stress through exercise whenever you want, day or night.
And what better way to introduce your family to the benefits of exercise. A home gym means that you and the whole family can enjoy keep fit and healthy together from the comfort of your own home.
