What's your favorite workout? A run on the treadmill? Pumping iron? No matter how you prefer to work out, a home gym is a great way to make sure you reach your healthiest potential. We recommend that your home gym include:
- Mirrors- Having full length mirrors in a home gym allows you to check your form for yoga, weightlifting, or plyometric exercises. Hang the mirrors so they are near an open area for full views.
- Storage- Weight racks, cubes for rolled towels, or a table to hold your yoga essentials are all examples of effective storage for a home gym. Proper storage keeps the space neat and promotes safety.
- Entertainment- Plan ahead to have your home gym wired for television and surround sound. This lets you choose whether to watch a show on the television or listen to your favorite songs while you work out.
- Non-slip floors- Safety should be your top priority. Choose from a variety of non-slip floor options, including adhered carpet tiles or bare hardwood floors, to help ensure safety.
