How to Build a Home Workout Space

By Genevieve Cunningham

Sometimes the hardest part of working out is rolling out of bed and getting to the gym. If it’s cold out, you may not be ready to breathe in that cold air. If you’re tired, you may dread the thought of driving across town. In order to make working out even easier, you might try working out in your own home. There is little preparation, and so getting to “the gym” becomes a lot easier. But, what if your house is small? What if you don’t have a room to dedicate to working out? If you want to make your own at-home workout space, check out these simple tips.

Start Small

You probably don’t actually need an entire room dedicated to working out. Instead, start small. Buy some handheld weights and resistance bands. These take up very little space, but allow your workout to be quite diverse. You can also utilize at-home DVDs or online videos that will require nothing more than pushing your furniture back. Don’t think that your at-home gym has to look like a professional one. Start small, and you’re more likely to make it work long-term.

Use Unused Spaces

Do you have a garage that doesn’t really get used? What about an attic or spare bedroom? Find a spot in your home that gets the least amount of use. Then store your workout equipment in here. Clear a floor space, keep the room clean and easily accessible, and voila. Not only will you have a place to work out, but you’ll finally use those nooks and crannies in your home that are otherwise going to waste.

Use Your Home

Sounds strange, right? It’s not. It can really help if you use what is already in your home. Need resistance? Use a door knob and tie your bands onto it. No place for weights in your home? Fill water jugs or use canned goods. Need a step for leg work? Use your front porch step, the bottom of a staircase, or a chair for a real challenge. You really don’t have to have professional equipment to stay fit. You just need an imagination and some perseverance.

Working out at home can really be a good idea. For many people, it’s the difference in working out regularly and not working out at all. Use these tips to build the perfect workout space at home, and you’ll soon be in the best shape of your life.
