Q. From where can I receive better results: from a gym or my home? I have recently bought some gym equipments for home. Now my friend sowed a doubt that the investment I made is for waste. From where can I receive better results: from a gym or my home?

A. From your question I think you have invested MORE for the equipments. But anyway past is past. It greatly depends on your fitness goals and your schedule. Both locations may yield the results you want. It's just good to know what you are aiming for. For example, if you are a busy mom of two and you want to lose those stubborn 10-15 pounds, but you don't want to join a gym because it is inconvenient to drive, plus you don't want to leave your kids with people you don't know, and additionally you prefer a more private setting, then, in-home training may be a good solution. Progressive resistance training performed in-home, mixed with cardiovascular exercise, and good eating habits will help you lose those 10-15 pounds. On the other hand, if you are a middle aged guy who is overweight, and you want to get into the shape of a bodybuilder, then joining a gym may be a better idea.
