Why People are Turning Home into a Gym

We are noticing a trend…

More people are turning their homes into a personal gym. Why?

Is it due to higher commercial gym membership fees? Or is it due to convenience or some other reason?

We decided to dig into and ask few people about this.

While investigating further into this question, we noticed a pattern that there are some people who are setting up their basement are into a personal gym or some are converting their garage into a gym and some are more innovative and using their doors as a gym.

Based on these trends, we can put these trends into following categories:

Turn Your Door into a Gym

door gym main

We found many people getting excited when talking about the door gym.

Some were calling it with different names like iron gym, iron gym bar, door gym pro, iron bar gym, pull up bar, chin up bar, etc but all had the same meaning and we are going to call it as door gym pull up bar.

Coming back to the main reason why a majority of the people are bringing gym into their homes, we realized that everyone has their own reasons.

Instead of putting all of those reasons, we are summarizing it into following categories:

  • Lost their job due to layoff or economic reasons and they are looking for cheaper solutions to stay fit - makes perfect sense and we salute these people to stay constructive despite such a major life challenge.
  • No time to go to gym so why not bring gym home
  • Even though paying for commercial gym membership, these people wanted to plan for the back up so that they can do exercises at home whenever they feel like doing it.
  • Some are keeping these home gym items in their offices so that they can use it during their break period.
  • Cheaper home gym items making it more affordable
  • Love the products, so bought it and use it whenever they want to use it - seems like a convenience factor
