Why I Do Not Like Gyms

Why are you still going to the gym?
Here are couple of reasons why I don’t like the gym and it would be best if we shouldn’t go to the gym.

You’re ready for it? Let’s get going!

1. People staring at you. Have you ever realize that when you go to the gym, all you see is huge bodybuilding type people that start staring at you the second you walk in, unless you are a bodybuilding type like they are. If you’re just a skinny guy (or girl) than those looks might be really intimidating especially if you’re trying to press and you hear a chuckle behind you. You know what I mean, right?

2. Bacteria. Let’s be honest, the gym is a place full of sweaty, greasy, overheated people that touch everything, sweat at everything and don’t worry if they accidentally spit on something. This can get you sake in no time. You might think I’m exaggerating, but believe me, once is enough.

3. Distraction. Imagine this: you walk into a gym, and want to start working out, but first you have to wait for your turn. As you wait, you notice a friend of yours, who at the same time notices to you, and walks up to you to have a little chitchat. The guy you’re waiting for to finish his workout is already done and that piece of equipment is open for you to use, but you don’t want to be rude to your friend, so you talk to him. Huge time waste!

Of course this is just an imaginary scenario, but you get my point. Working out at the gym can be very distractive especially if you know couple people in there.

4. Time waste. As you get to the gym and from the gym, you realize how much time it takes you. If you didn’t have to do all this traveling, you might even be able to reduce your working out time by 50%. Let’s say an average working out session last 45 minutes. You travel for 15 minutes each way, that’s 30 minutes of travel time. Instead of going to the gym, you could have spent this time actually working out at your house. Though free time could be spent with your friends. See what I’m saying?

Of course working out at the gym has benefits attached to it. Maybe you’re getting a free trainer, maybe you are meeting hot girls, maybe you just need that social time with people, but let’s be honest: you can get a trainer on tape, it’s better to meet girls outside of the gym where they’re not busy and we both know better occasions to gather together with your friends than the gym.

Save Your Muscles

I am here to tell you that almost all the exercises that you do at the gym and be done at home.
Here is a chance for you to stop paying high membership fees and start doing the workout at home.

It is extremely important to follow program that’s suitable for your fitness level. You might want to buy a tape, or consult a friend or a professional that will be able to tell you how to work out, which exercises to perform, when to take breaks, what to eat, etc.

Here are some general tips for you:

1. Each and every workout has to start with a warm-up. Since you don’t have a personal trainer, make sure that you do not overtrain or overdo it. It is really easy to overtrain when you first start out. Remember to start small and then climb up as you get stronger. Remember that she shouldn’t feel pain, just your muscles getting a stretch.

2. After the warm-up, you might want to get into some exercises. Depending on what your goal is and what you want to achieve, the exercises will be different. That’s when your tape, or a friend will come in handy. If you have someone tell you how to actually work out, you’ll avoid the risk of overtraining and basically killing your muscles.

3. It is a general rule that you have to perform better at each training session than he did at previous one. For example, if at a previous training session you are able to do 15 push-ups, now you should be able to do a couple more. If that’s not the case, maybe you have overtrained and need to take a break.

4. It is very important to have variety when you work out. Be sure to get some music going, mix up your exercises and don’t do one exercise too long. You’ll get bored to death.

Training at home may be just as effective as an extensive training and a gym. All you have to do is decide what you want to train, and what results you want to achieve. It’s not that hard, trust me.
