A home gym manages to solve a surprising amount of our best excuses for skipping a workout: you set the pace, there's no dress code or commute, and your only competition is with yourself. You don't have to find parking or change into more acceptable athleisure, and you can watch your favorite TV shows on loud while you beat your personal record on a stationary bike.If you're technically a morning person - but not enough of one to adhere to a daily 6 am drive and shower in a public locker room - you can find a way to more seamlessly integrate exercise into your day-to-day. Suddenly, it becomes convenient, and convenience turns into routine.
And if you're looking for the most valuable home gym tools, you should consider resistance tools. You don't have to spend a lot to get something effective, and you don't have to clean out the garage to fit a multifaceted weight rack in order to work every muscle in your body.
Resistance training poses a lower risk of injury (something that's especially good if you plan to workout alone), the tools are relatively intuitive to use, and you're not likely to ever outgrow them, so you'll continue to see results even as your fitness level increases. You could, theoretically, use the same workout tool for many years to come.
