Workout at home or sign up to my local gym? That’s the question most people are asking when they are trying to workout what’s best for their body. The reality of it is that both the gym and working out at home have their advantages and disadvantages. Here are my 5 reasons to workout at home:
Building muscles isn’t just about working out and downing protein shakes. There are many other factors that have a direct effect on how your body develops.

You know the expression: “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy?” The same could be said about working out. Don’t let your desire for building a better body turn into an unhealthy obsession.

The first type is the one that wraps around your internal organs. The second type is the fat layer beneath your skin. This is the fat we all notice and worry about.

It’s time for a thought-provoking article. Don’t worry though; I'm not going to go on about the meaning of life. Instead, I'm trying to find out if keeping fit should be done to excess. If you eat, sleep and breathe fitness (or you think you are), then read on and let us know what you think.
Are your biceps bursting out of your T-shirt or do you feel like you need to start over? It is in times (and weather) like this that we look at our gym progress and the results of all these hours lifting and running and squatting and sweating. It is now that we decide whether it was all worth it.
Do you feel you need a holiday (vacation)? Do you struggle to find time to socialise? Are you tired? Do you find it difficult to notice any progress in your fitness regime?
