Creating a Home Fitness Center

12 Jun Creating a Home Fitness Center

There are 4 main categories when considering the idea of home health and fitness. They are sleep, nutrition, emotional health and exercise. As designers, we see an ever-growing desire by our clients to incorporate a home fitness center into the scheme. For some, there may be an entire room available for this purpose. For others, a multipurpose room may be the solution.

Just think of it–no costly membership to join. Workouts without waiting for a machine.  No more having to fit class times into your own busy schedule.  And–your own private (and clean) shower whenever you’re ready!

The luxury of a home fitness center means not only more workout time but will eliminate the stress of dealing with a local gym. In addition, you’ll have extra free time to spend with friends and family.

All in all, a positive approach to improving your lifestyle.

Here are some items you’ll need to outfit your own home fitness center:

Basic Equipment  (low budget)

  • Resistance Bands
  • Jump Rope
  • Yoga Mat
  • Foam Roller
  • Weights
  • Stability Ball
  • Medicine Ball
  • Pull up Bar

 

Advanced Equipment (higher budget)

  • Spin Bike
  • Pilates Machine
  • Treadmill
  • Inversion Table
  • Matts for under large equipment to protect your floor

 

Accessories to Complete the Room

  • TV mounted on the wall or on a storage cabinet
  • Wi-Fi Connection for streaming classes
  • Stereo for music to motivate you
  • Mirror to check your posture
  • Potted Plants/Trees to help create a sense of calm

 

***Tip-If you don’t have an entire room to dedicate to a new home fitness center, consider sharing space with your guest bedroom or home office instead.  A dresser could house small equipment. Heavier equipment may roll away under a bed or into a closet.  Matts easily roll up an tuck away too.  There is always a way to accomplish this if you put your mind to it.  Or– call an expert to help.  We’re always up to the challenge!
