5 Myths About Working Out at Home That Are Holding You Back From Your Fitness Goal

Hey guys! It’s time to debunk some of the the misconceptions (that I could think of on a gloomy Sunday morning) and set the record straight! Or at least some of it. Working out from home can be just as effective as going to the gym, but only if you know the facts. In this article, we’ll be breaking down the 5 misconceptions about working out from home so you can finally stop thinking about and work on building a routine to achieve your fitness goals, from the comfort of your own space. Get ready to say goodbye to excuses and hello to results!

  1. “Working out from home is less effective than going to the gym.”

This is simply not true. With the right equipment or even your bodyweight and a proper workout routine, you can achieve the same results at home as you would at the gym. In fact, some people even prefer working out at home because it’s more convenient and less intimidating. Yeah, I’m one of the “some people” myself.

  1. “You need expensive equipment to workout at home.”

This is also not true. While certain equipment can enhance your workout, you can still get a great workout with just your body weight and some really affordable and minimal, but very efective equipment like resistance bands and adjustable dumbbells.There are many bodyweight exercises you can do, such as push-ups, squats, and lunges, that don’t require any equipment at all.

  1. “You need a lot of space to workout at home.”

This is not the case either. You can do a full body workout with very little space and very little equipment. You can even do a workout in a small room or living space, as long as you have enough room to move around comfortably.

  1. “You need to workout for hours to see results.”

Not true, even a short workout can be effective. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a great option for those short on time. These workouts can be done in as little as 20 minutes and still be effective. Although, I don’t recommend HIIT to be your only workout plan. More on this on another article.

  1. “You need to be a fitness expert to workout at home.”

This is the furthest from the truth. Anyone can workout at home, regardless of their fitness level. I started myself while living with roommates, with basically no space, without knowing much or having any equipment. There are plenty of workout plans that be adjusted to all fitness levels and needs. Working with a personal trainer, online or in person, can help you get most out of your space and find something that’s right for you.

Before building my own gym at home my routine was basic but still very efective and results was showing up quickly because I made a habit and a routine. Working out from home can be just as effective as going to the gym, and it’s a great option for those who want to stay fit while being comfortable to their homes. With the right mindset, equipment and routine, you can achieve your fitness goals right at home.
