Let’s start with the biggest elephant in the room, the price. Multigyms are expensive, and that can be the first thing to put people off buying one. However, if you look at it more closely, they are actually more affordable than your average gym membership. The average gym membership can come out at close to £40 a month per person, that’s £480 a year. And that doesn’t include the cost to get there and back, not to mention the fact that you have to share the equipment with other people.
Multigym prices can cost anything from £300 upwards depending on what you want from it, but say you buy yourself a multigym worth £499, that’s the same monthly cost of the gym for the whole family (£41 a month), but after a year you don’t have to pay it anymore, and the machines still yours. That will be a massive saving, particularly when the furthest you’ll need to travel is another room in your house.
Time-Saving & Convenience
We have mentioned this, but one big perk of a home multigym is that they are right there in your home—no more travelling to and from the gym, especially in the winter. Just think of how much time you can save by only having to walk to the garage or the spare room to workout.
Not to mention the convenience of being able to workout whenever you want, either once the kids have gone to bed or whilst your dinners cooking; whenever you want to exercise, you can, and you don’t have to wait for the machine to be empty to use it. You might even feel more inclined to workout because it’s now so easy to do.
Having your own multigym at home also means you don’t need to share it with strangers like you would at the gym. You have the privacy to workout however you want without the worry of someone waiting to get on the machine after you or vice versa. You can play your own music or watch what you want to on the tv, or workout with a friend or family member in private, what’s not to love?
Multigyms come with tonnes of features, and as we said before, it all depends on what you’re looking for. You can get different weight stacks, resistance levels, different attachments like arm curl pads and leg developers, and even home gyms for two people, so do some research and find what best suits you before committing. We have our Guide To Buying if you’re stuck.
So if you’re wondering if a multigym is worth it, we’d say they definitely are! They are a perfect time and money saver, and once you’ve started your home gym, it doesn’t have to end with a multigym. As you progress you can build up your equipment and keep pushing yourself to a healthier lifestyle.
