Are Home Fitness Machines Right For You?

Many manufacturers and distributors of home fitness machines will probably be screaming in your face "these machines are perfect for you, you need to buy them now!"

However, sometimes that's simply not true.

I've come to understand that each individual person is very different from another, and certain people have certain needs that should be taken care of.

For example, a self-motivating person doesn't need a personal trainer while someone who doesn't have much motivation might need one in order to stay in shape.

It's the exact same principle that you should try to figure out before buying a fitness machine for their home.

Who Needs A Home Fitness Machine?

Now obviously this is up for interpretation, but in my opinion the people who should buy home fitness machines will have the following qualities:
  • They should be self-motivators
  • They should be those who don't feel like going to a gym
  • They might want to just try something different
  • They will probably want quick, short workouts
Of course there are probably more, but that's just a few off the top of my head.

Also, you will need to think about things such as money and space.

If you have the space, that's great.

If you don't have the money but are going to a gym, just add up what you're paying for your gym for a year or two and see if you think it would be worth it to get your own machine.

You can visit my home fitness workout page where I lay out the pros of having a home gym.

Now I'm not personally trying to sell you anything as I don't have my own products just yet, but I love working out at my own house.

I used to hate going to the gym and having people stare at me as I was lifting. It's a very awkward feeling.

Plus, it's very easy to get distracted. Being focused is a very important aspect of working out and will lead to much more efficient training.

So let's get on to the next subject.

What Kind Of Home Fitness Machine Do You Need

This is kind of a tricky question actually. It's going to depend completely upon what your goals are.

For example, if you love doing cardio and hate strength training (although I'd advise you to please start if this is the case), you might consider getting a treadmill, stair climber, or a stationary bike.

If you want to strength train and add some muscle, I'd recommend getting a bowflex ultimate home gym.

And if you want to train like me with a variety of options to choose from, I highly recommend going to my page on what you'll need to build a home fitness gym.

Just do me a favor and don't trust people who are making ridiculous claims.

Yes, some home fitness machines can produce fantastic results. But when it comes down to it, it's going to depend on what you do with the equipment that makes the difference.

So before you go out and buy a new machine or more equipment for working out at home, ask yourself this question - "will buying this piece of equipment contribute to my goals?"
