As I don’t drive I have often used the excuse of not being able to get to the gym or sports complex as an excuse to not work out. (I’ve also used lots of other excuses too but lets not go in to that one!) 😉
I think at some point everyone has made some kind of excuse not to work out, whether it being afraid of looking a fool, too little time, too much to do or not knowing exactly what you’re doing, we have all been there! Which is why when I was offered the opportunity to work out from home with Hire Fitness I really couldn’t say no!
Working out from home gave me the chance to make myself a little fitter without having to worry about if my saggy bits were jiggling too much and that I looked a fool when I cranked the speed up a little too high and almost keeled over!
I had the treadmill for 12 weeks and have to say I used it more days than I didn’t use it and I think this was because we had it placed in the dining room which faces the living room TV and I had to walk past it numerous times a day – guilt complex or what!
The gentleman that delivered it explained how it worked and left a brochure which detailed all of the workouts that could be programmed into the treadmill depending on what kind of workout I wanted. I was pleased to see that there was a valve to pull which folded the treadmill up as I was worried about little feet trying to have a go when not in use. There was also a clip which you fasten to your top that is connected to the main machine with a magnet, if for any reason you pull away from the treadmill (fall or stumble etc) the machine cuts out.
I documented as I went how things were going and posted a couple of sweaty shots on Instagram too which I am sure was to the delight of my followers lol Having also bought special NO EXCUSES leggings I really didn’t have any excuse as to not work out from home.
If you struggle with motivation or need an incentive to work out then hiring a piece of equipment from Hire Fitness is the thing for you. You can work out at unsociable times, even in your pjs if need be and there is no need to feel pressure to complete a whole circut – you simply do as much or as little as you feel you can. The joys of working out at home!
I certainly feel a little fitter and think that if I had pushed myself more I would have lost more than I did. However I am more than happy with a 6lb weight loss and overall 7 inches from my body! YAY ME!
