Since the home gym is right next to the baby’s room, I can use it when the baby is taking a nap and stay close enough to hear him
Having a child changes your whole life. I used to be so fit, with activities and working out. Having this baby upended my entire life. Now I have different sleeping patterns, because I need to feed and change the baby at all hours of the evening. I eat differently, because I don’t have the free time to prepare healthy meals like I used to. Having fifteen to twenty minutes a week to set aside for exercise and fitness is also a thing of the past. I have had to make a lot of adjustments in my life, but getting a home gym helped me a great deal. Both of us have more than 2 spare home offices in the house, 1 of which now serves as a bedroom, and the other is my home gym. It isn’t not expensive, and no way it compares to the gym where I used to have a membership, but for now it is the best I can do. Since the home gym is right next to the baby’s room, I can use it when the baby is taking a nap and stay close enough to hear him. There is some gym equipment in there, and a clear section in front of a wall-mounted cable where I can follow along with yoga classes or other kinds of workout classes. I just have to keep the volume down to not wake up the baby in the next room! This is all temporary of course, because when the baby is old enough to go to school I can go back to the real gym.
