Designing a Home Gym in Your Basement

Want to workout at home? Look no further than your own basement to reach your personal fitness goals!

Squelch those excuses and make it happen! Bad weather, kids' schedules or limited gym hours won't impact your commute down the stairs.

Basements are ideal for fitness rooms because of the cooler temperatures and the noise from workout equipment won't resonate throughout the house.

Tips for a Home Fitness Room:

  • Reflect: Install mirrors to reflect light, give a spacious feel and evaluate your posture while exercising.
  • Light it up: Include ample lighting so you can see what your doing, AND the results!
  • Feng Shui: Add some indoor plants, and keep clutter at bay so you can focus.
  • Storage: Be sure to include proper storage for weights so no one trips over them. A corner cabinet is ideal for gadgets and clutter control.
  • A Good Beat: Music is a must-have for any successful home gym. If you have a treadmill or other aerobic equipment, include a TV to pass the time as you log the miles.
  • Hydration: The key to exercise - include a mini-fridge to keep healthy beverages at your fingertips.
  • Motivation: We can all use a little kick now and then - include motivational quotes as art, and a white board to track your progress.
  • Focus: Got kids? How about a "do not disturb, workout in progress" sign for the basement door? Or, better yet, involve the whole family by creating challenges or family tournaments!

A space to workout at home doesn't have to be fancy. Just a few elements will get you on your way to a new and improved YOU!

Creating the ideal space to exercise at home couldn't be easier. No need for a costly addition - the space already exists in your basement.
