I have a confession to make. I do not like going to the gym. First of all I feel like every guy in there is watching me. You know what I’m talking about? You walk into the gym and the guys are laser-focused on you as you go from machine to machine.
Secondly, I don’t really know what I’m doing. I go into the gym and feel like I’m in the middle of a forest of metal sculptures and don’t know what any of them do.
Lastly, I can’t find time in my schedule and it’s hard to get away. So I usually end up paying a monthly fee and not going wasting hundreds of dollars in the process.

I have been researching complete home gyms and found one that is affordable and user-friendly. It’s from Balanced Body – a great place for Pilates and mindful movement equipment that’s perfect for busy fitness enthusiasts like me who prefer to workout from home.

Complete Home Gym

I am currently using MOTR which is a complete home gym in a 43” cylinder that won’t break the bank or take up much space. You can improve your strength, balance, agility, sports conditioning and cardio. MOTR provides a quick, complete workout in almost any room in the house. I love how budget-friendly MOTR is for busy moms like me, who want to squeeze in a quick workout but don’t want to go the gym. Since all the components are stored in the core of the MOTR roller, it takes up very little room and can easily be tucked away in a closet.
