HNT working out

Here I am doing my home workout on the Nautilus all-in-one home gym. We have renovated every room in the house except this one. This summer we are planning to gut it and make it our bedroom. At that time, I have agreed to sell the equipment and go back to a public gym.

In our last place, we had 2500 square feet and the gym equipment took up a small slice of space in the loft. We actually had too much space there and resented heating it in the winter. Now that we've downsized to 900 square feet, having a home gym makes us feel cramped. I love the convenience of working out at home, but I miss being inspired watching others in the public gym.

Happy HNT!

Wow, now that's getting a bit more cozy! You are right about watching others and getting inspired at the gym. I believe your hard work pays of though!

2500 sq ft is a lot, and yes I'd resent that heating bill too.

As for going to the gym, we LOVE the contact, the interaction. We even have "gym friends" that we chat to, even have hung out with outside of the gym. For us the gym is not only physical, it's social and when someone goes AWOL we all worry!

Lesseem you are pressing about 70 lbs there in that pic?

Look at you! Great tone. I agree with CoffeeDog - the interactions of the gym can be great, although I do hate leaving it in the winter and heading back out into the cold.

I love working out at the gym. I used to work out at home too but it was incredibly boring and there was no one there to look at me.

Chuck said...

I so need one of those at home...

HHNT!

Wow, good for you, I am always so impressed by people who can stay motivated to work out at home alone. I have been trying as my new town is small and has no real fitness centre to speak of. It is hard to keep doing it at home! I miss my old gym A LOT!! Needless to say, I am not as fit anymore since I moved. Have a happy day! Devo

I've never been able to maintain my motivation when I've worked out at home. - I always prefer going out to a gym.

Nice pic by the way. You're a stud!

You're all buff and stuff.

Dude, I know what you mean. I love having home equipment. But the gymnasium is a motivator. Plus, it has a sauna, dog.

Rebekah said...

Boy, wish I was confident enough to post pictures of myself all the time.

No home gym for me.

Shora said...

I hear ya! I mean, while I'll happily trek out to dance classes and rehearsals several times a week, for my daily grind I'm much happier just slumping down the hall to my den and plopping my butt down on my very own stationary bike watching television in shorts with holes in nasty places and unshaven legs!

Jason said...

Good Lord. You look great. You actually inspired me to go to the gym today and not wimp out and go home.

Chunks said...

Thanks for the reminder that I have been lazy all winter and I will pay for it dearly come bathing suit season!

Jericho said...

It takes an act of God to get me to the gym every night but once I make it there, the inspirtation of others usually works. Have fun redoing the room! Happy HNT
