I have often been asked whether it is better to exercise at home or in a gym and of course there is no one correct answer; it is purely a matter of personal preference based on what type of environment you want to be in and how you want to accomplish the fitness goals in your life.




Personally I prefer to exercise at home as it has many advantages for me. Here are some of the reasons why I chose to workout at home and you might identify with them too.


Gym membership can be quite expensive and may include other things that I don’t need such as access to the swimming pool or child care. Although there can be an initial outlay for some exercise equipment it will last many years. I found a great range at Trojan Fitness.  I don’t have to spend a lot of money on the latest workout gear to keep up with the fashion trends, I can wear whatever I want. With the high fuel prices today I can also save money on petrol as well as the wear and tear on my vehicle by not having to drive to the gym each day.


I can do my workout in my own time and easily fit it around work and other family and social commitments. I don’t have to hang around waiting for a piece of equipment to become free nor do I have to worry about speeding up to make way for fellow exercisers.


At the gym sometimes people don’t wipe down the machines after use, sweaty machines are gross. At home I know my equipment and the shower is spotless.


At home I don’t feel conscious of my appearance and can relax knowing that no one is watching and judging me and can really focus on my workout.


Overall I enjoy working out at home and with the help of Trojan Fitness I have found it to be far more effective.
