Budgeting for a Home Gym
Why budget for a home gym?
If you’re serious about replacing (or supplementing) your current gym routine with an at-home option, you’re going to want to do some planning! Part of that plan will be how much money you want or have to allocate to a home gym. Is a squat rack a non-negotiable for you? How about dumbbells, a bench, or a barbell? If these are important parts of your workouts, begin thinking about how much you need to budget to make your home gym a reality!
How to budget:
Everyone’s budget is going to look different. If you’re envisioning a full home gym, you may have to cut back spending in other areas of your life. One option could be canceling your current gym membership and putting that monthly fee toward your home-gym budget. Cancelling the gym membership will not only mean less money spent on fees, but also less money put towards gas...which means more money put toward your home gym budget! GRIND also offers financing options if you want to get started right away. Financing is a great way to get going on your space if you don’t want any breaks in your fitness journey. Find the way that works for you, and make it happen!
Why should you invest?
Investing in a home gym is the ultimate gift to yourself! In addition to the overall cost savings, think about the hours saved. Instead of time spent on putting your gear together and getting your butt to the gym, you can enjoy the ability to spend more time at home, getting more sleep, and enjoying that cup of coffee in the morning without feeling rushed! ☕The money you invest into your home gym will come back to you over the long term, and you’ll feel confident you made the right decision.
