Organizing the Garage for a Home Gym
January 17, 2023
One of the top New Year resolutions every year is to lose weight.
Yet most of the time, it never happens. When someone says they’re going to watch their diet by the end of the holiday season, they do it for a while then go back to their old ways. When someone says they’re going to the gym starting on the first week of January, they do so but are not able to sustain it. When they’ve lost the groove, they don’t go back anymore because they think they’d just fail again and there’s always the next year to try once more.
Why do so many people fail to lose weight even if they really want to?
There are so many reasons but on top of mind are:
Gym is too far from their house
They find gym guys judgy and scary
Gym subscription is pricey
It’s much more fun to eat than exercise to lose weight
They are not seeing results
They don’t have fun while exercising
They can’t find friends to exercise with and don’t want to do it on their own.
They can’t find the time to exercise
So how can these excuses be damned? Set up a home gym! There won’t be any judgy gym goers. The gym is accessible 24/7. You have YouTube or other exercise apps to guide you. You can choose not to tell anyone that you’re into exercising so that you won’t be pressured to lose a massive amount of weight. You don’t even have to invite friends but you can do so once the home gym is ready. And plus, you save money from not having to susbscribe in a gym. You’ll be shelling out cash of course as an upfront investment but it’ll still be a one-off payment as compared to monthly withdrawals if you go to the gym every month.
So where can you set up the gym? Don’t look any farther because it’s just near your lawn. The garage!
But first, you have to declutter and organize the space for you to be able to create your very own gym. Here are smart storage solutions from FlexiMounts that can help materialize this vision. If you do it right, your gym experience at home will not be a hassle at all.
