Having a desire to exercise is something most of us can relate to, but oftentimes the practicalities of a regular fitness routine act as obstacles preventing us from acting on our intentions. For that reason, it’s important to plan regular workouts into your weekly schedule ahead of time. A key component of this is deciding where you will workout, either at home or at a gym. Both are great for different reasons and neither will hinder you in achieving your fitness goals, but which works better for you will depend on your personal circumstances and personality.

Ultimately, where you work out will be determined by your personal preferences. If you’re extremely self-motivated and require flexibility with regards to when you exercise, perhaps working out at home is more suitable for you. However, if not being self-disciplined enough is preventing you from achieving your fitness goals, then joining a gym can be the ideal way to force yourself to commit to regular exercise. In the end, wherever you work out, the most important thing is that you stay active regularly and you find an exercise program that works for you. Have fun!
