I love having access to a plethora of equipment and workout styles, as it allows me to find a workout that suites my daily mood and schedule. Unfortunately, I have yet to win the lottery, so my small budget does limit where I can workout. Though my job as a Personal Trainer does give me access to a substantial amount of equipment, I still end up working out quite a bit at home due to my schedule. Which leads me to today’s topic: how to build an at home gym on a budget! Continue reading “How To Build An At Home Gym On A Budget”
