The Value Of Having A Weider Home Gym At Home

Updated on October 9, 2010

A Simulated 24HR Fitness Center At Home

Why create your very own, simulated 24 hr fitness gym at home? No matter how much you love working out, this whole gym business can become a bit much. Just imagine the time issue, for example. Having to do battle with traffic day after day and hunting for that parking space all add up.

Then you still have to decide what fitness equipment apparel you will feel comfortable in among all those staring strangers... Why do it to yourself if you can gather fitness equipment for your 24hr fitness gym at home? You will have the freedom to exercise when you please, in whatever garb you are in the mood for.

Home gym equipment and innovative technology goes hand in hand. The choices are simply mind boggling, as are the price tags in many instances. However, if you are disciplined enough to train on your own, the pay-off over time can be handsome. If you can afford it, a trainer such as the Joe Weider Pro 9635 home gym will whip you into shape in no time. Add to that a Sole Treadmill or a Precor Elliptical Trainer, and you take care of both muscle building and cardio conditioning.

Don't worry if your budget is limited. Many top-rated workout programs make do with affordable equipment such as dumbbells, a weight bench and an exercise ball. A rebounder can also come in handy and is great fun to use.

The main thing is to be more active to get that old metabolism thoroughly revved up. You have to burn more calories than you are taking in. Why not go for a hike or a bike ride with the kids? Or what about an energetic evening of dancing? Add to that some training in your 24hr fitness gym and you should soon see great results in the mirror...

To recap, let's list some of the benefits of having a home gym:

1. 24HR Availability

You can hop onto your equipment any time you feel like it. You don't have to wait for a gym session. If you feel like getting some exercise, you can do so immediately. You can do it whenever the time is right for you. Perhaps you like the early in the morning, or you may want to wait until the kids are off to school. Some folks may enjoy exercising late at night.

2. No Travel Time

If you make a calculation of the time you spend traveling to the gym and hunting for a parking spot, you may be surprised by the result. Imagine the benefits if you can use all those extra minutes for a workout!

3. No Special Gym Clothes

You can exercise as you are. You don't need to have the expenditure of special fitness equipment apparel. If you love old saggy sweat pants and feel comfortable in them, that's fine. But, as your figure begin to show definition, you may very well decide that you can do with a new tight-fitting outfit!

4. No Time Limits

With a home gym at your disposal, you can exercise for as long as you wish. Nobody stands around, waiting for you to finish.

5. No Gym Membership Fees

You will have to make a financial investment when you equip your home gym, but this will see you through many years if you choose quality products. Monthly gym memberships add up, as do traveling costs. It may cost far less to do your workouts at home.   


Should You Opt For A Treadmill Or A Joe Weider Home Gym At Home?

A treadmill or elliptical trainer will give you great cardio conditioning benefits, but many experts rave about the benefits of having something like a Joe Weider home gym for strengthening workouts with weights.

These weight systems come pumped and ready to give you a huge push in the calorie-burning department. Weider home gyms have been building bodies and fighting flab at a fast clip for many years. It will soon become apparent that you will see faster results with weight training than with pure aerobic efforts. By adding lean muscle mass, your metabolism will begin to function much more efficiently, helping you to drop the extra pounds fast.

Imagine creating the ideal conditions for super-fast calorie burning right through the day. In fact, an efficient metabolism will have you burning through calories even while you sleep! Can you think of a better recipe for weight loss than crunching calories while in dreamland?

And you don't have to worry about becoming too brawny. Weider home gyms have been made to add muscle mass without creating ugly bulkiness.

      Thanks for your visit and helpful feedback, Teresa. Appreciate it. Yes, exercising at home can be a huge time-saver. There is such a wide variety of equipment on the market today, in all price ranges. Thanks for the tip about Amazon ads. I haven't tried it yet, but may give it a go here.

      I like the recapping section of your hub, nicely laid out reminders of the benefits of exercising at home - too many people put off exercising due to the schlepp (and cost) of going to gym or getting dressed appropriately to go play squash or to go jogging - and they forget about how easy it could be to just exercise at home. Amazon ads are so far not doing much for me, but you should perhaps consider adding Amazon ads to this hub - advertising gym equipment or books about exercise, perhaps.

      Thanks so much, Kenneth! Great to have you here. I am sorry about your health struggles. I have some understanding, as I have been very ill with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) for 32 years. For the last year I have also had non-stop, severe neuropathic pain. Let's just keep on keeping on and do our best with what we have been given. Being able to write on the internet, is a God-given privilege! I love having contact with the world in this way. Will check out your hubs as well.

      I agree with you..having a home fitness system is a great way to save your time and also effort and not to mention money on going to the gym every week. Just keep in mind, though, to pick the right fitness equipment for you.
