It’s not easy to cut the cord with big box gyms, expensive crossfit boxes, or boutique studios that don’t give you the freedom to craft your own workouts. Building a garage gym would allow us the freedom to eliminate the monthly costs of gym memberships, and customize the equipment we need to the workouts we enjoy. Many of us want to build our own garage gym, but either don’t know where to start, or are afraid the costs will be too great.
Finding a space to dedicate to your home gym can be difficult. Basements get used for storage and many times, the ceilings can be too low which limits your ability to have full range of motion for your workouts. Many people try to use their main living area for workouts, but find that they have to move equipment in and out, which leads to fewer and fewer workouts over time.
Working out during a pregnancy is one of the very best things you can do for your body (both during and after pregnancy), but also one of the best things you can do for your baby. Exercising while pregnant prepares your body for the stresses of labor, and also maintains a healthy blood flow that will ensure you and your baby stay healthy. But, is doing an intense workout like P90X3 while pregnant worth the risk?
It’s been proven that if done properly, it is completely safe to do HIIT (high intensity interval training) programs like T25 while pregnant. The most important thing that any doctor or personal trainer will tell you is to listen to your body.
