Today more homeowners are looking for ways to reconnect with their families and friends. They’re evaluating their living space and making room for entertainment hubs. They’re creating unique utopias where they can relax at the end of the day.
Most people spend a fortune on health club memberships then hardly ever go to the gym. About 80% of members with a monthly contract go to the gym fewer than 5 times per month. Why? Because they lack the time it takes to drive to the gym, wait in line for their favorite machines, and then drive back home. The average person spends $50 per month to belong to a gym. That’s a whopping $600 per year. That’s a lot of money to pay for a membership that you don’t have the time to use.
That’s why homeowners are creating their own gyms at home. They’re investing all that membership money into their own equipment. They can work out in the privacy of their own space and when it’s convenient for them. No more waiting in line to sign in, no more waiting for your favorite machines, no more wiping down machines after an inconsiderate member dripping in sweat leaves the station, and no more loud obnoxious music. Make sure to read our article on home gyms for information on various machines, manufacturers, and they type of workout each machine offers.
