Many people (myself included) have a love-hate relationship with exercise.
They love the way it makes them feel and look. They hate doing it.
You know you should do it. It keeps you healthy, fit, trim, sane. But it's just such a pain to go sweat and huff and puff your way through a workout.
That's one reason the vast majority of people who make New Year's resolutions to stick to a fitness program end up quitting after the first few weeks.
Developing good habits is hard, and sticking to a fitness habit is one of the most difficult because it requires an extended period of time to make it worthwhile.
Because it's so hard to develop a regular fitness habit, I've tried to choose workouts that are convenient and relatively fun. I've discovered the hard (and costly) way that joining a gym doesn't work for me. It just takes too much time and effort to drive to a gym every day.
I enjoy running, hiking, and biking, and I do these things often. But sometimes the weather doesn't cooperate, and right now I have plantar fasciitis which prevents me from running.
As a result, I've started thinking about getting some home gym equipment so I'll never have an excuse to avoid exercise. I've been doing some research on various equipment that I wanted to share with you.
