Meet Robert, a dedicated cardiac anesthesiologist who is happily married with two young children and is the proud owner of awesome home gym.

Robert was very active in his high school days where he participated in various sports such as rugby, track, and football. As he entered college, his exercise routine took a backseat, and his eating habits suffered.

It wasn’t until his sophomore year that he noticed he was getting pudgy and decided it was time for a transformation.

Home Gym and Diet

Motivated to make a change, Robert delved into research on diet and exercise. He bid farewell to unhealthy food, replacing it with wholesome alternatives like chicken, fish, and oatmeal. Maintaining a strict diet has been his norm for nearly two decades now.

At home, Robert focuses on healthy eating and diligently meal preps during the week, allowing himself the freedom to indulge when dining out.

Physical fitness has seamlessly integrated into his life, and he acknowledges that working out has become essential for both his physical and mental well-being.

Freedom of Working Out At Home

As his demanding schedule as an anesthesiologist grew increasingly erratic, with multiple call shifts that could span 24 hours or require him to work late or be on call from home, Robert had to adapt his workout routine.

Rather than following specific splits or targeting specific body parts, he embraced a total body workout approach. Surprisingly, this change has not only worked for him but also become a source of enjoyment.

Balancing work and family obligations can be challenging, but he appreciates the flexibility of having a home gym. For the past six years, his home gym has undergone various transformations to accommodate his evolving needs.

Challenges and Advice

In the last 6 years, Robert and his family have relocated five times, due to military service, moves for medical education and job transitions. Each move presented the hurdle of finding a suitable space for his gym. Had they settled in one location, his gym setup would have been more comprehensive much earlier.

The dimensions of their current home forced Robert to modify his squat rack by reducing its height. In hindsight, he realizes that there are now numerous shorter rack options available that he could have considered.

He also emphasizes the importance of investing in quality equipment upfront, adopting a “buy once, cry once” mentality. While his entry-level barbell has served him well, it is showing signs of wear, prompting him to contemplate an upgrade in the near future.

Ultimately, Robert firmly believes that investing in a home gym is an investment in one’s health.
