How To Set Up A Home Gym

By Steven J. Bancroft

Decide on the type of home gym you want. Do you wish to create a cardio fitness gym, a bare floor space for yoga or weightless workouts, a resistance training gym or a combination.

Now that you’re clear about the type of home gyms you can build, it’s time to take action.

1. Get clear about the type of home gym – of the three types mentioned above – you want to have. If it’s a combination, set that out as well.

2. Determine how much you can afford. Remember, you can buy more later. Go for the important stuff first.

3. How much space do you have. Can you fit a treadmill and have an open space for stretching? Can you fit a squatting power rack? Measure the space before you buy equipment – especially big equipment.

4. Prioritize, prioritize, prioritize. Write your list of the most important gym equipment to get started.

5. Start researching the types of equipment you have on your list. If you have a treadmill on your list, you’ll be amazed how many treadmills are available. Quality online fitness equipment reviews are a great starting point because they centralize the information for you.

6. Be ready to change your list. When you’re online researching your listed items, you just might find some latest and greatest fitness equipment that is perfect for you. Remember to ensure you focus on buying equipment you’ll like using. If you hate running and walking, don’t get a treadmill.

7. When looking at prices, be sure to add in any shipping costs and assembly costs (if you’re the type who prefers to pay for assembly).

8. How about paying for assembly? If you have a robust budget and buy complicated equipment, avoid the hassle and possibility you won’t put it together properly by paying for assembly.

9. Do the final preparations on your workout space so you are all set to go when your equipment shows up at your home.

Building a home gym is fun and if you get equipment and create a space you like, you’ll enjoy working out at home for years. You can always keep adding to it.
