If you don’t already belong to a gym, get started on it. For $30-$100 per month, depending on your location and the prestige of the gym, this will be the best investment of your life. Your body is your temple; you only have one place to live, so treat it that way. If you are complaining about the money, just understand that one doctor visit to do an EKG because of heart pain will counteract any savings you made from foregoing your gym membership. This is an investment and there is no better investment than investing in yourself. # While you can buy weights for your house and do a lot of varying body weight exercises like push-ups, pull-ups, sprints, squats, and burpees, it will be very limited in terms of what kind of results you can achieve.
Paying for a gym not only forces you to go on a regular basis, but you will be much more productive working out in an environment that demands people to do nothing but lift weights and run on the treadmill. The friendly atmosphere consisting of dozens of other people going through the same grind in an effort to get in shape will instantly motivate you. Not to mention, you will have dozens of machines at your disposal for each body part and you’ll be much more effective and efficient in training your individual muscle groups to build muscle and shred the body fat. This will be the best investment you ever make because what’s the purpose of buying a nice button-down shirt or a belt if you don’t have the body to show them off in?
