Create Your Dream Home Gym With the Help of These FAQ

Where Should I Put the Gym?

Basement or garage spaces are top destinations for personal gyms because they provide privacy with ample square footage. However, spare bedrooms or offices can also work well, so long as they are big enough to hold the fitness gear you want.

What Equipment Should I Install?

When you visit a gym, what machines do you frequent? Consider adding this equipment to your home gym along with simple gear like barbells, a bench, a yoga mat, and foam rollers. 

Should I Put in Special Flooring?

How Should I Layout the Equipment?

There should be plenty of room to safely use each machine while also offering some floor space for warm-ups, cool-downs, stretching, and weight work. Keep your favorite activities in mind while arranging your equipment and allow for space between machines to maneuver.  Also, ensure you have some storage options like a rack for barbells and a cabinet for rollers to keep the area neat and minimize the risk of tripping.
