Now that I’ve been faithfully (and successfully) working out at a health club for six months, I’ve been thinking about whether or not it would be worth it for me to buy exercise equipment for my home. I know that doing so would save me money in the long run, as I wouldn’t have to pay membership fees and dues anymore. But obviously this would only be the case if I continued to work out as diligently at home as I do at the club.
I wouldn’t be able to buy a bunch of equipment right off the bat, so I think it would be best to start with a treadmill. I like the versatility that treadmills provide, as I can adjust the speed and incline at which I walk or run, which gives me a chance to tweak my workouts according to what I want to accomplish on a particular day.
Also, I’d like some kind of weightlifting station so I can work on my muscle tone in addition to doing cardio exercises.
I don’t have the funds to run right out and get this equipment now, but my husband’s Christmas bonus will be here in just a few short months. That gives me plenty of time to shop around!
