5 Tips for Creating a Home Gym

Surveys by fitness professionals have found that most people have a better chance of staying in shape when they have a home gym.  Whether it’s a dedicated fitness room or a corner of a basement, garage or bedroom, a home gym is the most convenient place to work out. 

Here are 5 tips for creating a home gym that will inspire you to work out more:

  • For a cardio workout, treadmills, stationary bikes and ellipticals are the most popular home fitness machines.  Position cardio equipment in front of a window or TV to help relieve boredom.
  • Add some free weights for strength training.  A weight stand is a good way to organize and store weights.
  • Paint the walls with a favorite color that will make you feel energized.  Provide plenty of light.
  • Decorate the walls with motivational posters.
  • Make sure your fitness space is well ventilated.  Add a fan if it heats up during the summer months. 
  • Visit Home-Designing to see pictures of some inspirational home gym designs.
