I have a 40' coach with a Cummings 8000 generator. It could easily handle a treadmill. But when I wanted to workout, I'd drive to a Planet Fitness. I get a higher quality workout there. They have more equipment, better ventilation, multiple entertainment options, and unlimited hot water (though I prefer the privacy and cleanliness of the coach).
Many of us have fitness equipment lying around at home, unused. The justification we used about convenience of being able to workout at home, turned out to be a fantasy. If you've established a routine of going to the gym on a regular basis, don't cease the habit when you become a vehicle dweller.
Yes, but that greatly influences the van life as a result.
Requires to be near the gym and to then drive daily to said gym. Right now I have an apartment because I have a small down and my rig is a minivan. I have been getting closer to planning a minivan life, that allows me to keep working my overnight job, and then going to the gym 1 hour 4 times a week still.
Right now it seems quite impossible to juggle so many things that I am and make them all fit together. However, I am getting closer and closer to feeling comfortable that it COULD work..
Living in a minivan in town, working an overnight job buying food after work, driving to the gym 4 times a week, meal prepping at the park twice a week. Sleeping in the park in the afternoon no overnight parking /sleeping rules don't apply in the afternoon ...im in the process of brainstorming of "rebuilding" my minivan to see if it can be improved to make it all fit together better.
I still want to see about a treadmill in a bus because I think it is right for me.. just because others failed in their gym route does not mean I shouldn't attempt it.. I will admit I failed TONS of times in the past but I had to do a lot of healing before I got to this point in my life where im am healed enough and able to go through this process of weight loss! Spending the winter in the Arizona desert was such a massive healing process!
I am starting to think it's much more possible than I thought, just nobody desired it enough to actually do it. ...it's a long term goal not a short term goal given my debt, but in 2-4 years I should be above the water enough that I would be fine anyways..
