Although there are many people that now have pull-up bars in their home, few realize that there are others than just the doorframe pull-up bars which have been specifically designed for use in the home. Of course, the doorframe varieties are convenient as they take up relatively little space, making room from the space left for the door, however, for those people that have room in their homes, garages or yard for free-standing pull-up bars, they too are available to purchase.
The best free-standing pull-up platforms can be found online as can the many doorframe varieties. The reason why so many people are buying their own pull-up bars is that of both convenience and expense. Being able to exercise in your home is far more convenient to travelling to a gym, even if there is a gym in their neighborhood as it can often take as long to get to and from the gym as it takes to complete an exercise session, meaning people have to find twice the time if they intend to exercise in a gym. Secondly, having your own pull-up bars can save money as often gyms are expensive to join and have monthly fees whereas once you have paid the initial cost of the bars, no further expenses are necessary.
As the numbers of obese people increases, so does the number of people that start to exercise but due to many thinking they need a gym to do so, not all those that should exercise are doing so. Even though the number of gyms is on the increase there are still too many people that live too far from one for them to be convenient, plus of course for many, the costs are financially prohibitive as well. The solution for these people is to, therefore, buy a pull-up bar and immediately start their much-needed exercises. A jog along the street, a few sit-ups in the bedroom and some pull-ups in a doorway will soon have them back in shape and if they keep the routine up, never put the weight back on.
