As the recent pandemic has caused everyone to quarantine themselves more than they’ve ever done in their life, home workouts have trended quite a lot. This has led to many people arguing that people should forget gyms altogether. However, in a world where social distancing isn’t a real thing, here’s why going to a gym is actually a great option.
There’s a reason you have to pay a monthly fee to go to the gym. It’s because you’re gaining access to state-of-the-art equipment, the kind that you’d never be able to get at home. In addition to the quality, there’s also the quantity. Even if you could afford (or fit) a massive Elliptical in your bedroom, there are simply tons and tons of other cool machines you can use at the gym.
Assuming we’re not talking about corona times, we can always benefit from being around other people. Seeing others gives us energy, and in the case of gym culture—can even hold us accountable to our workout routines.
Getting Out of the House
