Should I work out at home or in a gym?

It can be tough to fit a gym into your schedule, but working out at a gym rather than at home has enough advantages to tip the scales in its favor.

You can have great success with Olumia Life by using a home gym. In fact, if you’re looking to get healthy on a tight budget, a home gym setup can save you a lot of money. You can get by with only a simple set of dumbbells and an exercise ball. (Check the Compass in the Olumia Life app for more info.) That said, working out at a gym and taking advantage of all that the facilities have to offer is really a great option for long-term fitness.

Gyms are more than their equipment

Olumia Life is made for long-term success and that means keeping yourself engaged. There is a huge exercise library utilized for the home workouts, but by using a gym’s exercise facilities and other offerings, like classes, the swimming pool, basketball courts, etc., you can get all your needed strength training, cardio and core exercises done in lots of different ways.

Just like a home office, it helps productivity to have a dedicated space for certain activities, and the gym is a great example of this. There’s only one thing you’re there for, so it’s easier to get it done. After all, a gym is designed to be conducive to exercise.

If you decide to work out at home, it’s a good idea to set aside a place as your gym at home. Gyms also offer a social aspect that homes often don’t. Everyone is there for the same reason after all, so there’s always something in common. Fellow gym-goers are a great resource for learning, support and motivation.

Of course, you can make your gym experience however you want it to be. If you prefer to keep your headphones in and go about your business, there are plenty of people doing the same.  You can also go during non-peak hours to avoid crowds.
