I equate training with masturbation; I can’t do it when there’s somebody else in the room–being half-naked, sweating, and grunting is something I enjoy doing privately and I’m sure others would prefer I do it privately as well, but I guess I’m just shy like that.
I like to refer to my home gym as my Fortress of Solitude. Void of all distractions, training alone in my home gym allows me to focus on the task at hand. My home gym is my sanctuary. It’s my happy place. In the privacy of my home gym, I don’t have to wait for anybody; no need to wait in line to use the squat rack; no need to work in; no need to make small talk with acquaintances, no bullshit; just me, myself and the iron.
With a home gym, you can also invite your training partners over for some amazing lifting sessions without other gym members or gym staff getting in the way.
