Have you ever dreamed of having your own private space to work out? Going to the gym is great, but for many it would be convenient, enjoyable and practical to work out from the comfort of their own home. There are many perks to this, not least 24 hour access for exercising at a time that suits you. If you’re thinking of building a home gym in your place, take a look at our tips below.
1. Decide how much space you need
Wanting a home gym and having the space for a home gym are, of course, two very different matters. Often though, space can be maximised by de-cluttering in rooms you usually use for storage. If you do have a spare room big enough then you are ready to start planning. You can always store your belongings in safe storage units (http://flexispace.com/personal/) to help make the most of your space.
2. Decide on a budget
Once you have a budget you can work out what items of equipment you are going to prioritise. You can weigh up how much money you are going to save over a year through not having a gym membership, or simply save up the amount that you need in advance. Either way, setting a budget is the best way to ensure that you do not over spend or end up with more than you realistically need.
3. Consider room temperature and ventilation
You will need to decide how to regulate the room temperature throughout the year. Fans or air con systems will probably be essential, especially during the summer, to keep you cool while you work out. Ventilation is also important as you don’t want the room to become sweaty or smelly. Open windows are an easy solution during the summer, but it may we worth investing in a dehumidifier as well, especially for the winter months.
