Many workouts can be done whenever possible, so sticking to a gym environment is rather a stereotype though having some general advantages. Don’t let stereotypes guide you! Whenever you decide to turn into a passionate gym rat, check with some of the following pros and cons making it easier to make up your mind. The idea is not to take you off the gym route but to make it clear that there is always another way to kip fit.
Another Monthly Fee or Good Investment
The financial issue is the first and foremost factor to consider. An average fee in 2016 is about $58 per month when it comes to permanent membership. However, the majority of people who pay those bills do not visit gyms regularly; they include 67% of all members in accordance with the latest statistics.

General Gym Cons

● Location - Your gym may be located miles from home making you spend plenty to get to it;this may come with many inconveniences especially when considering professional sportsmen.

● Lack of Expertise - There is always a chance of being injured due to an overload or inaccurate workouts.
