There are plenty reasons why you can feel stress, anxiety or depression. This is especially true this past year after the Pandemic swept the world via COVID-19. Many of us were dust in the winds when it came to going to the local gym. I recently purchased a smart home gym, a bench press, some dumbbells and a plyometric jumping box. Buying these items provides me the opportunity to workout whenever I want to from home.
The direct results that I get?
I get physically stronger, more toned muscles and I relieve stress – all thanks to using home gym equipment. There are plenty of reasons why using home gym equipment relieves stress, but for the sake of this article, I want to show you how it all works and if you should purchase some equipment. Remember, it’s all in an effort to feel great about yourself physically and emotionally.
That’s what working out does for our mind and body. It helps release positive energy and creates a sense of goal achievement that cannot be replaced with anything else in life.
You wanna know what the best part it?
It only takes 20-45 minutes per day. That’s it!
I think we all would start working out from home if we had the right gym equipment. The problem is, we don’t know what to get, especially if we are just starting out. So, let’s dive into what you can get and then how you can use it every day so you can de-stress, get some muscles and feel great about yourself.
Purchasing The Right Gym Equipment For Your Home
Everyone’s home is unique and different in it’s own way. You need to make sure you know the dimensions of the room you will be using for your “home gym.” Measure height, width and depth of the room so you know exactly what you’re working with.
Next, you’ll want to figure out your workout style. Do you like weight training or resistance training? Perhaps you only like cardio or boxing? Maybe, you love rowing and using fitness apps like the Peloton to push you through the hard times. Whatever you decide for yourself, that’s a great start because we can then narrow down equipment to fit what you should purchase.
Let’s say you love spinning classes and maybe even a little strength training to go along with it on the floor. There are plenty of smart exercise bikes that you can fit in almost any room in your home. Not to mention, these are killer workouts that make you feel AMAZING after you’re done.
Smart Home Gym
Technology has improved so much over the years and thanks to it, there have been some amazing brands that came out with top of the line smart home gyms. These are all-in-one studios that only require 6′ tall and 8′ deep space. You can choose a machine that has resistance weights or the real deal Olympic weight sets. Whatever your personality is, that’s what you should buy.
Rowing machines are super interactive these days (thanks to that technology once again). You can get a full body workout with smart rowers, race other people online, and take a rowing class similar to peloton. It all depends on which rower you want. You’ll need floor space for these machines, but that’s about it.
De-Stress and Start Working Out
Relieving stress from using home gym equipment is easier than you think. The main obstacle is the price point, or, affording the machine. However, most of these companies have a payment plan that makes it more reasonable. But, once you get your equipment, you plug it in and start working out. It takes time, commitment, and a little help from the community. Well, this is your time to shine now. Get out there and start working out. And, be sure to let me know right down below what you did to relieve stress in relation to fitness.
