If you are a fitness buff, missing out on a workout can make you feel bad about your progress. You value consistency, but at times tight schedules and family responsibilities can get in the way of your training. Additionally, gym membership fees can turn out to be an expensive endeavor when you are in a cash crunch. This can be aggravated by the need for daily or weekly car parking fees.
If upon some thorough calculation you realize that you are losing a lot of money on gym memberships, you can decide to create one of your own in your place.This will not only save you the membership and car park fees but will suit your complex schedule as well. If you missed evening exercise, you can wake up early in the morning and carry on.
