According to a recent poll of 2,000 people by OnePoll, 75% of people believe it’s easier to stay fit at home. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in early 2020, 64% of respondents stated that they’re more interested in at-home exercise than ever before. As the uncertainty of the pandemic continues into 2021, it’s anticipated that most people will stick with at-home workouts, dedicating living space to personalized home gyms.
Notably, you can get in a good workout without needing to buy expensive equipment. The average American spent $95.79 on home gym equipment during quarantine — considerably less than a gym membership. With a pair of dumbbells and exercise bands, you can make getting in shape accessible and affordable.
Though using a home gym works for some people, many don’t have enough space. What’s more, it’s possible to get in a good workout without spending a penny. Going forward, expect to see more people utilizing free YouTube videos and exercise apps to guide them through workouts. Many of these exercises require minimal or no equipment and use your body weight for resistance.
