OK, I know I sound like a broken record, but I just want everyone to be healthy, fit and feel great and energetic. So, that said, are you are ready to commit to a leaner, fitter and healthier you? If so, why not consider (or reconsider) working out from home?

Here are 10 benefits of selecting a home workout routine:

Save Time
Not having enough time is the most common excuse people use to avoid working out. Working out at home means you save time by not having to drive anywhere and allows for more time to be spent exercising instead of traveling. Bad weather conditions could also interfere with your workout schedule. Almost everyone can find at least 20 minutes a day to exercise (and I can show you at least 2 programs with workouts that are 20 minutes or less).

Save Money
With an at-home-gym, there is no monthly gym membership payment. You could be saving a substantial amount of money on gas by doing your workouts at home. A good set of dumbbells and a proven fitness program that includes not only the workouts, but also the meal plans, is all you need to reach your health and fitness goals.

Privacy
You can spend more time focusing on your movements and engaging your muscles properly instead of focusing on all the people around you. Working out at home means there is no one looking at you. If you are self-conscious, you can feel good and workout at whatever pace you want.

Control
You can ensure that any equipment you have is up to date, clean, safe and that it fits the needs of your specific workout goals. You never have to worry about others using it.

Flexibility
You can work out when it fits into your schedule. Working out at home allows you to work out in segments if you have to throughout your day. Having the flexibility of working out at home will help you to feel more relaxed.

Family Time
Working out at home enables you to spend more time with family. Incorporating your family into your workout routine not only brings you closer together but enrolling them in your workout goals will help motivate you to achieve them. Children emulate their parents– you may find soon your little ones are trying to work out with you.

Safety
Your belongings are safe from theft instead of sitting in a gym locker room where you have to pay extra for a lock. You avoid running the risk of your keys getting lost or stolen while they are hanging on a key rack that people you do not know have access to during your workout.

Consistency
Not having to leave the house means you can work out more often and with more consistency making your workout more effective. This will help you stay on track with your goals and maintain a routine daily.

Noise
Working out at home means no noisy distractions. You can yell, scream, grunt –even cry as loud as you want. You can listen to your music and blast it as loud as you want. You can even watch TV, listen to an audiobook, or follow your favorite workout without interruption.

No Excuses
Your home gym is open every single day of the year, any time you are available to go! There are no time restrictions on the machines, no lines, no distractions, and most importantly no excuses are stopping you from getting in a good workout.

Getting healthy and staying fit requires a lifestyle change and committing to working out at home is a perfect way to invest in yourself!
