Keep your mind and body in shape this 2021 by learning how to build a home gym. Trust us, it’s cheaper than your gym membership.

If you’re losing motivation to exercise, then a home gym might just be what you need. It doesn’t have to be fancy or to have a dedicated workout room. You can build a home gym even in the corner of your basement or garage. It’s easier and cheaper to move and workout in the comfort of your own space. So, if you’ve been wanting to get in shape, but don’t know where to start, let us help you by setting up a budget-friendly but chic home gym!

Convert Any Unused Room

The first step in building a home gym is to choose a space where you can be comfortable working out. It can be a spare room or a nook of your home office or bedroom. Some people built their home gym in their garage, basement, or attic space. This home gym designed by Regan Baker Design proved that you don’t need to have a dedicated room to build a home gym.

Stock Your Home Gym

Of course, a home gym wouldn’t be called a home gym if you don’t stock it with exercise equipment. For some, a simple yoga mat and dumbbells are all they need to work out. However, if you’re a gym junkie, you might need more than that, such as kettlebells, treadmill, exercise bike, or exercise machine that’s part of your workout routine.

Keep It Organized

It’s so much better to exercise in a clean and organized space, especially if you have a small home gym. Create a storage plan to keep your exercise equipment, like your yoga mat. You can also add a laundry basket for used towels or install a floating shelf for clean towels.

Decorate Your Home Gym

OK, we know this is everyone’s favorite part in setting up a home gym. Decorate the space so you’ll feel motivated to workout. Set the right mood, like painting it with a vibrant color or adding plants to make the space feel fresh. Install plenty of lights so you can keep an eye on your form. You can also place a mirror and foam floor mat.

Put It to Good Use

The most important part when building a home gym is to actually use it. Invite your gym buddy to workout with you. Keep in mind that you’ll see the health benefits only if you regularly use your home gym.

We hope that these simple ways on how to build a home gym will help you stay fit and healthy during this pandemic. Learn more interior design tips and ideas on Omysa’s Design blog. You got this!
