If you’ve over indulged in the Festive Season like so many of us, then no doubt you will be thinking of ways in which to lose a few pounds this January. Most of us at this time of year think about joining the local gym, but find ourselves, after the initial burst of enthusiasm, not using it to the full for various reasons. These can be lack of child care - if you have a young family, getting time out to go to the gym can be tricky; long working hours and just the fact that you just don’t want to go out on a cold, winter’s evening. So instead of investing money into a gym membership how about setting up your own gym?
Setting up your home gym doesn’t have to cost the earth, all you need to do is to allocate an area in your home and work out how much money you are going to spend. Most of us will be feeling a financial pinch after the festive activities so if you can’t afford to buy everything straight away then the best item to buy would be a bench press and some weights, depending on whether you want to increase your muscle ratio or lose weight, if you are looking to lose weight then investing in a cross trainer/exercise bike would be a good start, these start in price at around £79.00.
If you don't have the space to house a gym in your current property then you might be interested in this property for sale which has a large outbuilding which is currently being used as a gym.
The property is on the market with Goodfellows Cheam Village for £750,000 and it comprises of four bedrooms, sitting room, large kitchen/dining room, family room, utility room, study, downstairs shower room and cloakroom/WC, upstairs family bathroom with separate WC and an outside room which the vendor uses as a gymnasium. However, to clarify further, the accommodation is incredibly adaptable due to its layout: the study, shower room and downstairs bedroom are accessed from the kitchen/dining room and could therefore easily be utilised as separate accommodation with use of the kitchen, if required, or simply as part of the main house.
