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
- Stability Ball
- Medicine Ball
- Pull up Bar
Advanced Equipment (higher budget)
- Spin Bike
- Pilates Machine
- 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!
