Can you really lose a significant amount of weight by exercising at home or is going to the gym more effective?
This is just one of the many great health debates that have been going on for decades.
It’s absolutely amazing what the fitness gurus fight over.
Your weight loss results are determined by you and not some piece of equipment, whether it’s located at a gym or at home.
Your body doesn’t care where it performs lunges or a bicep curl…
All that it knows is that you are working your muscles against some form of resistance, which is where your weight loss results will become a reality.
Don’t ever get hung up on location, just focus on getting your daily workouts done and increasing your intensity levels a little at a time…
As long as you’re consistent with your diet and exercise, you will drop those pounds.
The most proven and effective ongoing theme has always been to keep things simple.
