Exercise Equipment.
 
# 1 : Sunday 3-10-2010 @ 19:56
 
 
I am currently trying to decide on if I should invest in a home gym system or Investing in a years Gym membership.

The pros of going ot the gym is the fact that I will have other people to motivate me, gym trainers around me to keep me motivated and moving and everything else that can come with a gym (Mmm, eyecandy ;P)

What I am wondering is does anyone have any experiance with both elements, having some home equipment and also been to a gym, what were your own version of how it went, were you able to keep it up with either of them and where did you go/get the equipment (and if anyone has any spare let me know )

I have gym membership, but very rarely have time to go, if I had equipment in the house I'd use it more often, so if you have the room I'd go with that option.

What I forgot to mention aswell is that I am currently unemployed and finding daily life draining with lack of stuff to do, I need some motivation to get moving and grooving.

Most homes are full of unused gym equipment, I would say join a gym as I find training at home boring.

Well in that case go to the gym, it'll get you out doing something.

It can be very hard to motivate yourself to use home gym equipment. A gym environment might help.

I am out in Monkstown, I was looking at Crunch Gym in Dun Laoghire, it is quite expensive however the equipment, the pool, the system and the trainers are fantastic.

The problem I have is that I want to be able to have a gym within walking distance.

Both...

Paying for the gym needn't be crushingly expensive. Also I find that knowing I have paid encourages me to go. I go every day most weeks.

At home I also have a set of weights and an exercise bike.

I tried out some shaking machines at the ploughing match . They'd shake the belly off an elephant and you don't have to do anything energetic with them as the machine does all the work . They're also good for your hair .
