Misconception 4: You Should Get a Gym Membership
Losing weight can be a pretty big challenge. Getting a gym membership, though, is not the right solution for everyone. It can possibly make losing weight even harder, depending on the individual. It can be expensive and actually quite intimidating to be in a room full of fit, athletic people. Try working out at home first. Find out what routines you’re comfortable with and what equipment you may need. An exercise ball, for example, is a great home gym tool. You can do curl-ups, push-ups, and more—all with an exercise ball. An exercise ball is also a great chair replacement, enabling you to get a work out in, even when you’re sitting at a desk. If working out at home doesn’t work for you, sign up for a gym membership trial. You may need a room full of athletic people to motivate yourself.
