Why you should invest money in yourself to attain your fitness goals

To be honest a lot of things that are fitness related are freely available on the internet through fitness blogs and YouTube videos, you do not really need to buy anything especially when it comes to fitness information. This is all great but the problem when it comes to free things is that we do not value them, and we don’t take things seriously. I shall give you some good reasons why you should invest your hard earned money in yourself to achieve your fitness goals.

Four examples on why you should invest in your fitness goals.

 Example one – buying a fitness guide or book with a diet plan for different body types and a solid cardio plan and lifting plan


Information is freely available everywhere but most people are lazy to go about searching different sources of information for information having it in one book is advantageous, you can save money on diet plans from trainers, and workout plans and the fact that you have spent money on said book should motivate you even further to follow through especially if you worked hard for that cash, the more you need that extra money you spent on book the more you will want to make sure you are getting your money’s worth.

Example two – you should invest in weights or a gym membership


If your goal is to get buff and not just to be fit and have a cut body then you should invest in weights or save up for a gym membership. I know many people do not have money but if it’s something you really want, you find a part time job or a way to make a little cash and you save up so you can afford a gym membership or weights, and when you do pay for those weights or gym membership you will be more motivated to use that membership/ weights because you know what you sacrificed in order to get those weights, laziness and excuses get you nowhere. Also how about you become more creative, if you are still saving up and don’t have weights, you can find resources around your house or neighbourhood to make make-shift homemade weights and use them in combination with bodyweight exercises to get in shape. You can even buy second hand weights and benches which is cheaper than buying them brand new. If you really want something you commit and invest in yourself, you don’t wait for a gym membership, you don’t wait until you have money.

Example three – investing in healthier foods and supplements


Some people say buying healthier food is expensive, and if you are bulking you have to eat a lot and have to spend more money on food and to make things easier you can buy supplements to help you with your gains. If you really want to attain you find a way to save money and buy that food you need, you buy those supplements even if it means you can’t afford to go out during the weekend with your friends or to buy beers that is okay because it’s a sacrifice you are willing to make to attain your goals, that sacrifice will make you work even harder so that you have something to show for it, so that you prove to yourself and to others that it is worth it and it was not for nothing. You will push even harder in the gym and be more dedicated.

Example four – buying gym attire


You do not need to buy new gym clothes, you can wear an old t-shirt, sweat pants to gym and old running shoes and you would be fine. But buying gym clothes is good for you psychologically, think of it this way when you buy gym clothes it’s like you are buying a uniform to fit into the gym community and to be a member you have to focus on your workouts and get that body that’s fitting of that uniform. You feel more confident when you are wearing cool gym clothes and you want to work towards a body that matches so you will work harder to make sure you get ripped. Also what is the point of buying all these fancy gym clothes if you don’t go to gym and if you don’t have a gym body or don’t plan on getting one, you have no option but to go to gym, work hard and succeed.

I use the term invest throughout this post because that is what you are doing when you are spending money on yourself to build yourself. People don’t like spending cash on themselves, but you are important and money should be spent on important things, spending money on your betterment is making a commitment to yourself, it saying you believe in yourself and you are willing to bet on yourself.
