Cost of Living Crisis: Save Monthly Gym Costs with Budget Home Gym
The UK is bracing for a tough Christmas during the current cost of living crisis. Millions of people are cutting back on their spending when it comes to their disposable income.
With rising costs of essentials such as fuel, electricity and gas, many gym-goers are facing the difficult decision of having to terminate their gym memberships, as they can no longer afford the monthly fees. According to the London newspaper City A.M., almost 1 in 5 Brits can no longer afford fitness services and products.
Many gyms, leisure centres and fitness studios are having to hike their membership fees and room hire prices, to cover their increased energy costs.
During these unprecedented times, having to choose between paying the bills and enjoying a healthy lifestyle, is a stark reality for many.
So, what is the solution to combating expensive gym membership fees?
The answer is to invest in your health in the long term, with one-time purchases to set up a home gym- which would allow you to work out in the comfort of your home, stay active, and build a healthier body and mind.
Sporteq sells all the exercise equipment and accessories that customers will need for training and reaching their fitness goals. Whether they are a fan of strength training, or they are boxing aficionados or a yoga enthusiast, Sporteq can cater to any of these needs.
Boxing is an excellent form of cardio exercise which strengthens the core, burns calories and works out the full body – and the best part is, it can be done at home, with only a punchbag and gloves.
Sporteq stocks a wide variety of punch bags, which are suitable for beginners, professionals and amateurs at all levels. From heavy-duty bags and uppercut bags to Speedballs and kickboxing bags, there are multiple different punch bags to choose from.
Whether customers would like their punch bag to be free-standing, mounted to the wall, hooked to the ceiling, or a boxing dummy, Sporteq offers all kinds of high-quality punching pads for every boxing need.
Another must-have product for a home gym is Sporteq’s hex dumbbells. Hex dumbbells are a fantastic addition to a home gym, as they help activate muscle mass, improve balance and strengthen the joints.
Perfect for ground-based fitness activities, Sporteq’s hex dumbbells are affordable and available from 1kg all the way up to 30kg. Purpose-built for weight training, these hex dumbbells are created with extra grip for comfortability.
Setting up a DIY gym does not have to be expensive. At Sporteq, customers can use the pay-later method Klarna to spread the cost of their home gym. Instead of spending a minimum of £240 per year on a gym membership, customers can buy a pair of hex dumbbells for £39.99 and a punchbag for only £26.99.
