With the recent splurge in obesity, health warnings have been flying out at every which angle. From doctors warnings to celebrity chef endorsed healthy eating programmes, we have a constant reminder that Britain, as a nation, is simply too fat.
Now, the government has spent billions advising us on what to eat, when to eat, how to eat - lets face it theyre a knife and fork away from eating the food themselves!
Now, this is all well and good but is it just me that thinks that this slightly ill advised? Eat as much as you want, eat as little as you want if you dont do any exercise to match that then there is no doubt in the fact that you WILL put on weight.
And because the government has put so much money into the healthy eating campaign I highly doubt that they will be putting any money into a keeping fit campaign.
Imagine if the government paid subsidies towards gym memberships, wouldnt that be great? The cost of a gym membership is so expensive, and of course those companies will be taking advantage of the fact that obesity is prevalent at the moment, and theyll be hiking their prices up. 150 to use some gym equipment once a week, (because of course with a job and family commitments, that is all the time I have to even think about the gym) and to add insult to injury the exercise equipment has a grimy shine from the sweaty man who used it before me. No thank you.
I genuinely believe the only way forward is to bring the gym home. Minus the sweaty men, the size six ladies plastered with make up, and all the mirrors. There is a solution for it. There are places to purchase top of the range fitness equipment for the home. In store, they tend to be slightly pricier than on the internet, but there is no reason you couldnt test the gym equipment and get an idea of what you want, then come home and purchase the exercise equipment online from the comfort of your own home.
The comfort of your own home. No other people watching you exercise, more opportunities to exercise and the best thing? There are no membership fees.
Dont worry about space, most of the fitness equipment is easy to hide away if not in a storage cupboard, it is possible to get gym equipment that folds away easy. And if you dont have room for that, then keep it out. Nothing else will motivate you more than actually seeing the exercise equipment out in front of you.
There you have it the solution that even the government cant seem to attain. Bring the fitness equipment home and you can be exercising whilst youre watching Ugly Betty. Or even when you wake up in the morning. Nothing kick starts the day better than a little bit of early morning exercise. Try it out, and you will see.
