Build Your Ultimate Home Gym
Gym memberships can be expensive, with monthly fees that add up over time. But what if you could invest those fees into a home gym that would pay off in the long run... Well, now you're talking.
By building a home gym, you can create a personalized fitness space that meets your needs and allows you to work out on your own schedule. While the initial investment may seem steep, it's a small price to pay compared to the long-term savings you'll experience from no longer paying a monthly gym membership.
However, with numerous options on the market, it can be challenging to know where to begin. To assist you in creating the ultimate home gym, here's a guide covering everything you should consider when making purchases.
1. Assess Your Space
Before delving into the basics, let's consider three crucial aspects for your home gym space.
Planning the layout of your home gym is vital to ensure a safe and efficient workout space. Consider the size and flow of your designated workout area. Arrange your equipment accordingly, leaving ample room between each piece for safety and ease of use. Thoughtful planning will result in a functional and enjoyable home gym that motivates you to achieve your fitness goals.
To safeguard your floors and establish a comfortable workout surface, think about investing in flooring designed specifically for home gyms. Options include rubber mats, interlocking foam tiles, and rolled-out rubber flooring.
We offer a robust, durable 15mm thick Rubber Mat solution available in four different colors: solid black, black with blue, grey, or red flecks. Explore all our flooring packages here.
Storage & Layout
Storage options are essential to maintain an organized and tidy home gym while maximizing floor space. Consider utilizing shelving, storage baskets, and wall-mounted racks.
Top picks for equipment storage include:
- 3 or 4 Tier Dumbbell Racks or the Storage Tree if heavy weights aren't your preference.
- Armortech V2 3-bar Gun Rack Storage, an excellent option for keeping bars off the gym floor.
- Armortech V2 Bumper Plate Storage WS300, a fantastic choice for bumper plate storage, ensuring tidiness and easy accessibility for loading your barbell.
Now that you've established a solid foundation for your ultimate home gym, it's time to bring your vision to life.
