You first have make a commitment to exercising to improve your physical appearance, health and anti aging goals. Then you have to decide if you should join a gym or train at home

Both have many benefits and just as many problems.

Considerations When Fitness Training At Home

First, you may be alone at home. This has both advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages of home fitness training can include:

  • It's very private. Women especially like this benefit

  • Fitness training at home can be more relaxing

  • You don't have to worry about anyone bumping into you or talking too loud

  • You don't have to drive or take public transportation to the gym

  • You save money on gas

  • Over time, if you consistently use your home fitness equipment, you will end up saving a lot of money

  • You can wear whatever you want to as long as it's comfortable and not restricting in any way

  • You don't have to stand in line and waste your time waiting to use a piece of equipment

  • You won't be self-conscious wondering if people are judging you during your workout

  • You can listen to the music you want to not what the gym decides to play

  • If you have children you don't have to worry about finding a babysitter

  • Everyone in the gym uses the same equipment. Even those who come in sick with a cold or the flu – Yuck!

Some of the downfalls include:

  • Problems staying motivated and/or becoming bored quickly;

  • No one to "spot" your heavier lifts. This can be very dangerous if you get trapped under a weight you can't get off your body;

  • You will have to pay out a lot of money in the short term to get the fitness equipment you will need. A good treadmill for example will cost you at least $1500.00, although jogging or walking outside costs nothing.

  • A good home gym can be as much as $5000.00 or a lot more;

  • A lot of people who decide to do their fitness training at home don't think things through ahead of time and are unprepared for what is to come.

Don't forget proper nutritional habits when fitness training at home.

Some Equipment You'll Need

The fitness equipment you'll need will depend on your short-term and long-term anti aging, health and fitness goals.

Online stores have better prices, a larger selection and very affordable payment plans. The problem is you can't try it out before you buy it.

Your local exercise equipment stores often have good deals but you'll have to spend time driving around to see who has the best deal for the equipment you'll need.

You should also be able to find fitness equipment dealers who specialize in used equipment. This can potentially save you hundreds of dollars.

  • Free Weights: Free weights are the simplest and cheapest type of equipment you'll need for fitness training at home. Free weights include barbells, dumbbells and weight plates. You have the option of buying "Standard" or "Olympic" weights. Olympic weights are more expensive and larger.

  • Dumbbells: Another important piece of exercise equipment needed for fitness training at home are dumbbells. By far the best option for this is the Powerblock™. The Powerblock™ is an adjustable dumbbell set and you can get a set that goes all the way from 5 pounds to 125 pounds. For most people the sets that go up to 25 pounds, 55 pounds, or 100 pounds will do the job.

  • Adjustable Bench: An adjustable incline/flat/decline dumbbell bench will allow you to be able to properly perform almost all upper body dumbbell exercises.

  • Home Gyms: There are many home gyms available but keep in mind that they will cost you a lot of money, especially for a good one.

A problem that's even bigger than the cost of a home gym is finding the space in your home to put it. Keep in mind that once you set it up you won't be able to move it unless you spend hours taking it apart.
