How To Create A Home Gym You’ll Actually Want To Use

Friday, January 31, 2020

Whether you have a garage that isn’t being used or have recently built a separate building in the garden, creating a home gym is very appealing. The idea of exercise without travel, gym memberships, and strangers watching offer the incentives. However, it’s only worthwhile if you’ll actually utilize the space on a frequent basis.

Your home gym doesn’t need to emulate a commercial gym, but it needs to feel comfortable and promote the right energy. Here’s how to make sure it does.

Pick Quality Over Quantity

The home gym will be limited for space, at least in comparison to commercial gyms. So, rather than adding lots of different equipment, try to focus on quality over quantity. Not only will it be kinder on your bank balance; it’ll also aid the layout. Besides, only one item can be used at any given time.

If you’re happy to go running or cycling around the local area, avoid the associated machines. Opt for a rower instead for a full-body workout. Kettlebells and free weights are particularly good options too. Not least because they promote versatile workouts to keep exercise fun and fresh.

Create Comfortable Surroundings

While your home gym is a space to complete workouts, a few simple comforts can provide extra motivation. Sadly, it’s very hard to complete consistent workouts when the room leaves you feeling uncomfortable and unhappy. Therefore, a conscious focus on the interior design is key.

Adding brick-styled 3D wall panels creates a motivating yet stylish workout space. Meanwhile, you should ensure that the air circulation meets the desired standards. Otherwise, the heat and humidity can ruin your motivation. A mini water cooler is a wise addition or your ongoing comfort too.

Organize The Space

Building a home gym that looks great on day one is one thing, but keeping it that way is another altogether. Creating a space for yoga and stretch-based exercises will give you greater versatility. Adding a mirror will allow you to check your form during the process, which is great news.

The sense of organization should extend to storage too. A weight rack is far better than leaving them around the property. Meanwhile, if you plan to use supplements or essential oils for immediate recovery, a space for these is vital. When your gym space is organized, workouts will feel better.

Add Entertaining Features

One of the great things about a home gym is that you can have things your way. It’s a chance to enjoy your tunes. If you’re worried about the neighbors, a quality pair of headphones will offer a great solution. Bluetooth options will give you a choice to switch between the two choices.

It is also worth considering the prospect of fixing a TV on the wall. This can be especially useful if you do opt for a treadmill or bike. After all, it’ll offer you the chance to combine cardio with watching your favorite shows. For the sake of time, as well as workout enjoyment, this is ideal.
