Creating a Home Gym

5. January 2011 02:51

Were you one of millions of people who decided that getting into shape this year was your 2011 resolution? As a new year begins, many of us are hopeful that with a change of the calendar, we can make positive changes toward our lives. Out with the old, in with the new, they say!

In order to make these positive changes, you may feel that you either need to join a gym or set one up in your own home. Either option has its benefits. Joining a gym, you will have somewhere to go that has all the equipment and classes you need plus you can meet people. This option is enticing for a lot of people. You will need to be disciplined to go there everyday and while some people will be successful with this, others will find excuses for why they can't make it to the gym.

These people may do better by creating a home gym. A home gym can consist of any piece or collection of equipment and supplies you will need to have a proper workout. Since how you work out is individual to you based on need and preference, only you can decide what you need to keep your resolution this year.

Looking for an idea to get started? An elliptical trainer is a great way to work out difference muscle groups with one machine. You can find the Sole E35 Elliptical Trainer on sale at Dick's Sporting Goods. This machine retails for $2,200, but is marked down to $1,299!  Plus, for a limited time you can receive free shipping on fitness equipment $299 or more.
