As a teenager, my father purchased a York home gym which had everything. My mates from around the street would spend hours in an over-sized garden shed, which during the summer months would feel like a sauna! The gym had everything. Leg extension, pec dec, bench press etc.
As we got older, we outgrew our home gym and it lay dormant in the garden shed forever and a day.
These days, the home gym buyer is faced with a limitless amount of options. The quality of systems has also progressed alot in the last 15-20 years to the point that some home gyms would not look out of place in a commercial gym.
When you visit our showroom/warehouse, we start by asking you some important questions:
* Who will be using the home gym?
* What are goals of the main user of the gym?
* Is there any existing strength equipment in the house?
* Are there any space restrictions?
If the primary user already undertakes a fitness routine at say a gym, then maybe a plate loaded system like the Monster Fitness G3 might be worth considering.
The next step is how you will purchase your home gym. Macarthur Fitness has a number of payment options including interest free payment plans.
Finally if the thought of putting together one of these things has you shuddering, fear not! We also offer an inhouse delivery & installation service at a time convenient for you.
Our store at Narellan is open 7 days at Unit 6, 49 The Northern Road Narellan (best access via Campbell Street).
Home gym vs gym membership. With so many different options available to keep fit or lose weight, which one is right for you? Choosing the wrong option could potentially cost you hundreds each year with nothing to show for it. Worse still your fitness goal will slip further and further away the longer you persevere with the wrong choice.
With the availability of high quality fitness equipment the decision to set-up a home gym has become more and more viable. Furthermore home gym equipment is affordable with most reputable retailers offering a myriad of finance options.
I’ve compiled a few reasons why I think a home gym really is the most effective way to get your best body ever:
1. Save time
This is a no brainer. In the time that it would take to pack you gym bag & drive to your gym I’ve probably already done half my workout. Once your in the gym & depending on when you go, waiting for your favorite piece of gym equipment consumes more time. At my home gym, I don’t wait for anyone or anything. Its all about the workout.
2. Save money
I heard on the car radio this morning a certain chain gym offering memberships for $6.95 per week. I have a theory on the price of gym memberships. Hear me out. The theory is that as they get cheaper and cheaper, if your like many people and don’t go as often as you should, the amount hitting your bank account is almost undetectable in amongst all your other direct debits.
Setting up a home gym is dependent on a couple of things:
- Space: This will determine what type of fitness equipment will be in your home gym. Also think about where you decide to set up. It needs to be somewhere easily accessible.
- Budget: A home gym with a basic multi station gym & a small walking treadmill will set you back around $1600-$1800. Think about what type of fitness equipment you need and then talk to a fitness equipment store.
Other Peoples Sweat. Enough said….
Just because you workout at home doesn’t mean you need to forgo the support you would get from a personal trainer or friend. Theres plenty of personal trainers that will gladly come out to do one on one training in your home.
