Home Renovation Series: How To Create A Fitness Area In Your Home

Are you wondering how to set up a fitness area in your home? You are not alone. During the pandemic, many of us are looking for new ways to do daily things. This includes a way to work out and continue your fitness routine at home. It started as a way to work out while our favorite places to stay fit were closed in March. However, for many people, they discovered they loved working out at home. 

Where do you begin? Look around your home and see if there are any areas that are not being used that can become your favorite spot for your favorite area to work out. You might discover your new place to lift weights, work on your yoga practice or get your cardio in. 

Here are some benefits of doing that:

  • You can exercise at any time of the day.
  • It's more efficient. You just wake up, get dressed and you are ready to work out.  No more time to drive there or gas to spend.
  • You will save money on monthly memberships (after you invest in your fitness set up. 

Let's get started on how to make the transformation:

  1. Walk around your home and see if there's an area that is not being used that could be repurposed for your fitness area.
  2. Decide what are the essential things that you need to put into that area to make it function in a way not just to get by but to bring out the best in you. 
  3. If you're building a gym, you need to consider cardio options such as a peloton bike or treadmill. For strength training, you can always follow a specific program that you can find online. Unlike going to the gym, you can do it anytime in your personal fitness area. 
  4. Having a TV where you can hook your phone or your computer to it is a huge addition to your fitness area. It will make you feel that the instructor is just right there in your space. 
  5. If you want to lift weights, make sure you have all the weights you need for your current program. To keep it organized, you can buy a storage unit to keep all your weights, bands, and workout shoes. IKEA has many great options for affordable storage units. 
  6. The right lighting, fan, and mirror complete the ideal workout area.
