The year is off to a great start and you have been going to the gym regularly. You’re thinking about taking it to the next level and committing to your very own home gym. It’s not only more convenient but over time you will save so much money. After all you are investing in equipment for life.
But it is not always so easy and there are some questions that you need some help with from the weight training experts.
The ironmaster team are here to help you create a home gym that your friends will be envious of. No matter what the budget is, or how much space you have.
1. What room will you be transforming into your home gym?
Before deciding on equipment, and dreaming about the body you will have a year from now, you need to choose what choose what room you gym will be in.
Many home gyms utilise the space of a basement, garage or outhouse, but spare bedroom and offices also make great choices. And if you are really tight on space, you may have a part of your living room or dining area to transform.
2. Understand the rooms energy
It may sound ridiculous but it is true. For example, if you are transforming a bedroom into your home gym you may need to adjust a few more things than just moving a bed.
This is because some rooms have a naturally warm and cosy feel about them and this may not be the best for your home gym. So to start look at how much natural light the room gets and if it will need additional lighting. This is because a brighter room will positively influence your mood and you will have better workouts.
Another addition may be mirrors, they can increase the appearance of space and the brightness of a room. This works especially well if you are in a basement. They also make you more aware of your progress over time.
Before you think about adding equipment to your home gym you should remove any unwanted distractions. This may be unused electronics, unnecessary clutter, children’s toys etc. Removing these and also taping loose wires will make a safer and more enjoyable home gym.
3. Add your equipment and any accessories
