5 Home Gym Myths, Busted!

5 Home Gym Myths, Busted!


Training from home has never been more popular, with a lot of us being in some sort of lockdown.

You will find some kind of training equipment in most people's homes these days.
Whether it's a set of dumbbells and skipping rope, to a fully decked out home gym consisting of squat racks, benches and kettlebells. Most of us are getting onboard with the idea of training from home.

We have learnt a lot about home gyms in recent years. Today we will debunk the top 5 myths around home gyms.

1. You need a lot of space.

A lot of people think that to have a home gym, you need to park the car on the street and empty out everything in the garage to fit your training equipment in.

Yes, you can deck out an entire garage with all sorts of equipment, but don’t let the fact that you may not have a whole bunch of space stop you from hitting your training goals at home.

With a set of Adjustable Dumbbells and a Bench, you can do a full body work out. Don’t have enough space for a bench? Adjustable Dumbbells alone or a set of Kettlebells is all you need.

2. It will cost a fortune.

How much will a home gym cost? Well, how long is a piece of string?

This all comes down to your budget. Most people think that they have to take out a second mortgage on their home to be able to train from home.

Equipment ranges in price. A Battle Rope and Skipping Rope can get you shredded in no time!

3. The quality won’t be the same.

This one is simple to debunk. Equipment at Rug and Rig Fitness is commercial-grade. That is what we strive to do - bring you commercial-grade equipment into the comfort of your own home.

4. You won’t be as motivated to train from home.

A lot of people feel like they will simply do half their workout and then go back into their lounge and turn on Netflix.

We found that this simply isn’t true. We check in with our customers and find that because they are so comfortable training from home, they can push themselves even harder.

Remember, you can choose your own music, take as many mirror selfies as you like and dance your heart out between sets!

5. It’s a pain to set up.

It may look like there’s a lot to do when it comes to setting up something like a squat rack. At Rug and Rig Fitness, we aim to make this process as simple as possible. Most of the time, you can do it with just one person, but of course doing it with two will make it faster.

Home gyms have come a long way over the years. Easy, quick to set up equipment is what we aim to deliver and that’s our commitment to our customers.
