A home gym isn’t just for the rich and famous anymore. All you need is a little (yes, just a little) space to be able to work out in the comfort of your own home. Do you have a room that isn’t being used to its full potential? Maybe it’s a spacious Garage that you rarely park the car in. Maybe it’s a home office that’s seen better days or a Spare Bedroom that’s become a storage space. With a little elbow grease, you can turn one of those spaces into an exercise room that accommodates your love of Pilates, yoga, running or whatever moves you.
Whether it’s a small nook or an entire room, homeowners are starting to make home gyms a priority. Engaging in a home fitness routine doesn’t mean you need expensive Workout Equipment; there are several home gym design options that simply require some creativity, a little bit of space and a few get-fit goals. As you start planning out your home workout room, determine what kind of exercise you’ll stick with — depending on your budget, square footage and interests, you can create a yoga studio, meditation space, weight room or even a climbing wall! Once you determine what kind of gym you want in your home, think about what equipment you’ll need; a yoga area could simply require a mat, while other exercise rooms may need an elliptical, treadmill and sound system.
Walk-out lower level
For homes with the main rooms on the top floor, the ground level can become underutilized. Turn the lower space into a multifunctioning area that can help you get a workout in. Set aside a portion of the level for a home gym and turn the rest of the space into a play area for the kids so you can stay fit and keep an eye on them, too.
Has your spare bedroom become more of a catchall for junk? Clear out all the unnecessary clutter, take the items to a consignment shop and use the cash to help you purchase new exercise equipment to fill the now-empty room.
If you’re a health nut, your garage may go to better use as a gym. This garage became a gym with a remodel that turned garage doors into French doors, cement flooring into an acoustic floor surface and a wall into a gigantic mirror.
A seldom-used sunroom could become the ultimate yoga retreat. A sunroom’s large windows and sliding glass doors let in plenty of natural light and beautiful views — the perfect environment for a yoga session.
