With a Home Gym, Chanhassen Can Have Its Cheese and Eat It Too
Did you resolve to “get in shape” this year? If so, you’re probably strutting around town now with that new beach body. No? Then welcome to the club—the Twin Cities’ Star Tribune reports that 63% of Minnesotans are overweight or obese. Maybe that’s because the mere thought of going to the gym triggers a fight-or-flight response. While socializing with strangers is swell, that’s what Facebook is for, and most of us civilized folk prefer to grunt, sweat and do other less flattering activities requiring terry sweatbands in private. That’s right—personal dignity remains high on our list of priorities.
Despite this, some of us don’t cancel those memberships because we rationalize all the money we’ve already spent on gym memberships with the idea that someday soon we will recoup that loss when everyone is like, “WoW! Look at (insert your name here). He/she is lookin’ gooood!”
Whether or not you’ve been spending your Benjamins on a gym membership, when you finish or remodel your basement this year, consider adding a home gym. Minnesota winters are long and cold, and you are unlikely to get all the exercise that your doctor actually recommends unless you work out indoors. More importantly, exercise releases endorphins and combats the winter blues by making you feel good.
A home gym allows you to work out on your own schedule—no driving on icy and dangerous roads, no waiting in line for equipment or wiping someone else’s sweat off of it before use. And, if you want to kiss your bicep in the mirror in anticipation of how great you’ll look in a few months, you can do that without eliciting giggles and stares from strangers.
So, now that you are going to be working out regularly, you can add that wetbar you’ve always wanted and throw fondue parties ALL WINTER LONG. (By the way, did you know that cheese also releases endorphins? The Swedes knew exactly what they were doing…)
Whether it’s a wet bar, entertainment room, home gym, custom closets or storage, Iron River Construction can build to suit your needs and tastes.
