5 Points To Help You Set Up A Home GymJuly 29, 2017
As days go by we are all becoming increasingly health conscious, staying fit is equally important as going for work. Gyms have become a weekly spot of visit, if not daily for both men and women alike. So how about setting up a gym in your own space? It isn’t that difficult as it sounds to be, a few essential and simple equipment can make a very functional home gym.
Go through the following 5 points to effectively setup a workout space in your own place.
1. What’s your goal?
You definitely need not all equipment together in your home gym, so first identify what exactly you want to attain by working out. Gain strength, build muscle, lose fat or simply work out to feel healthy and relieve stress- your purpose can be anything. The equipment might vary as your need, say for instance muscle building necessitates dumbbells and barbells, where as to lose your belly fat you might require only a tummy trimmer. In short, identify your goal and make a list of things that you need.
2. Your budget
Your budget follows your goals. Investing too heavy on your home gym is not a great idea unless you are very passionate about it or you have no health clubs nearby. A foam roller, a resistance band and a jumping rope can give you the same effect as an electric treadmill, without breaking the bank. The choice of equipment and their cost is dependent on your goal, as has been already discussed and on the space available. Nevertheless, quality should be the prime concern when you prepare a home gym.
3. Space available and atmosphere
If you have too many equipment you will need a lot of space, but still you can arrange them along the corners of the house. Choice of the equipment is thus mostly based on the space available. Atmosphere is yet another important aspect of exercise, a well lit room that is free of distractions and noises should be preferred for your home gym. Balconies are also widely popular for simple work out sessions with plenty of natural light, freshness and positive vibes. Play good music with your speakers to keep you energised and passionate while you exercise.
Flooring is a very crucial element while you opt to set up a home gym. The flooring elements should be chosen such that it protects the gym equipment and also reduce the sounds that come out whilst you work out. Commercial grade foam flooring is recommended for your home gym.
5. What all do you need in to start off?
The equipment that you might need to purchase depends upon your budget, personal needs and the space available. However, some suggestions to fill the starter’s kit would include dumbbell, kettlebell, pull up bar, rings, jump rope, barbell, weight plates, benches and treadmill (if you can spent a little more).
