Working out from home is particularly popular with stay at home mom’s, so what better way to commit to your fitness goals than to redesign that unused garage space into the perfect exercise area and make an investment in your health.

Getting Started

Most of us have a garage that is packed full of junk that is in serious need of decluttering so now is the time to get organised. This doesn’t necessarily mean having to throw everything in the trash if the items are still functional and in good condition, consider donating them to a local charity or selling them online. Even if your garage is small in size you can still make this project a reality by ensuring you maximise your available space and clear as much of the garage as you can to give you a blank canvas to work with.

Creating Your Gym-Space

If you plan on only using equipment such as a treadmill or exercise bike then having a concrete floor isn’t necessarily a problem, but if you would like to include interval training or yoga then consider a high-quality option such as a FloortexTM Coating. This would give you a comfortable surface to work out on keeping all of your training apparatus clean. Optimising your space by using the walls allows you to increase your available floor space gives you the opportunity to fit in more fitness accessories. You can install racks for your sportswear, giving you the perfect opportunity to expand your wardrobe and a cabinet for your supplements to boost your energy levels and support your fitness goals. Jump ropes can be placed on hooks secured to the wall and if you play sports such as tennis or hockey, you can hang your rackets from the ceiling depending on its height.

Stocking Up 

Now that you have got the design right, you can start to fill your gym space with equipment to get you started. A great investment is the Bowflex Max Trainer, a unique elliptical exercise machine that is the perfect piece of equipment for your home gym. It is compact and lightweight offering you the ability to work out several muscle groups at a time by fusing all the benefits of a HIIT session with a low impact approach. It comes with a number of workout programs to get you started and with many exciting features and settings you will be burning off calories long after your workout.  The following round-up by AllWorkoutRoutines provides a lot more information on the Blowflex Trainer:

Finally, no home gym would be complete without a set of kettlebells for weight training, a gym ball to engage your core, a yoga mat for those essential stretches and a foam roller to help with the post-exercise recovery process.

Turn Those Goals into Results

Once you have added the finishing touches and transformed your old unused garage into a stunning new gym space you are ready to develop your new work out plan and start turning your fitness dreams into reality.
