It’s normal if you can’t make it to a gym for every workout. So is it OK to mix home and gym workouts? This short guide will help you figure it all out!
There is a big misconception that you need to have a gym membership to see real results.
This isn’t true, and we have hundreds of thousands of clients that are proof. Just look at people like Summer, who lost 70 pounds in 7 months working out from home. Trust us, we could spend all day sharing more examples just like her.
While a gym is a nice luxury to have for building muscle mass and strength gains, it’s not required. And if the stress of “getting to the gym” is meaning you’re doing fewer workouts, then that’s a problem! You can build lean muscle, get stronger, lose body fat, and get in the best shape of your life at home with little to no equipment!
If you’re following a workout program, it’s also easy to assume that you have to stick to either gym or home workouts, and not mix the two. This is also false!
If you have a gym membership but wonder if it’s okay to work out at home sometimes — absolutely!
How To Go From Home To Gym Workouts
As long as your program gives the option for both working out at home or at a gym, you can switch back and forth between gym workouts and home workouts at any time! This is one reason why our programs Fat Loss Extreme for Her and Fat Loss Extreme for Him are so popular.
In the “gym” version of these programs, you only do two “gym” workouts each week — both of which could be performed at home with just a few weights and a few exercise modifications. Then you only have three quick bodyweight-only workouts later in the week that can be done anywhere.
Don’t have access to a gym at all? No problem! There’s a full follow-along home version of the program, too!
Bottom line … don’t stress yourself out about where you will work out. Do whatever works best for your lifestyle! Remember, it’s consistency, even if it’s in different locations, that gets you results that last long term.
