You may think that to exercise is a choice, you may think it’s a life style, a must, or you might even deny it altogether. Calories however, are undeniable. All of us, at one point or the other, have felt the need to exercise and many of us want nothing more from it than to actively move around for half an hour for a boost of fitness and dopamine and be done with it. For those people a gym membership might be too much of a commitment. If you are one of those people, it’s time you go to the store or go online and order your fitness equipment of choice.

Weight training/Anaerobic home equipment
If your main goal is to make muscles and look buffed but the gym is still sounding too much, if you’re looking beyond mere dumbbells and pushups, home gyms are first best thing. You can have a more than adequate setup for your hypertrophy needs at the comfort of your room (or basement). Based on your needs and goals, home gyms range from the convenient and basic $300 models to giant, heavy-duty, multi-person Marcy and Smith machines for well above a grand. There are of course, pros and cons to buying a home gym over a gym membership: Pros of buying a home gym -Available at all times -No subscription fees -Exclusive
