Home Gym - Stay Fit From The Comforts Of Your Home

Author: Brooke Hayles

Modern lifestyle has made us lead a stressful life. With busy schedules and stretched jobs, we hardly get any time for daily exercises. Hence, obesity and diabetes and various fitness disorders have become very common problems.

Need for a home gym

When you find no time to go out for exercises, having a home gym is a great relief. By using it, you can exercise and stay fit without having to go to a gym. You can workout whenever you feel like it and when you are extremely tired, you can even relieve stress by gentle workouts on your gym. You can improve your bodyline without having to regularly go out to the gym.

Why is a home gym better than a regular gym?

There can be no better place than one's own home. That is the place where we have complete privacy. Having a home gym, you can workout with comfort and ease. It occupies less space than you'd think and you can always choose what equipment you would like to have. Home gyms offer all types of exercises that you find at regular gyms.

With your gym nearby, you have absolutely no reason to skip your exercises. Commercial gyms are often overcrowded and you may hardly get your chance at the machine you need. At home, you will definitely not have to wait until someone else completes their turn.

What equipment is needed in a home gym?

You may like to exercise for different purposes like weight loss, muscle building, body toning or fitness. You need to choose the equipment according to your needs.
You should have cardiovascular equipments like treadmill, stationary bike and a rowing machine to achieve fitness. Muscle building will require you to have dumbbells, Olympic barbell set and an adjustable bench with leg extension or leg curls attachment. You will probably also need an exercise mat.
Plan your equipment according to your budget and do take into consideration the space you can allot for your gym.

Installation of a home gym

Installation requires a proper floor plan. Floor plans help you in placing your fitness equipment in a proper place and position, and will help you with optimum utilization of space. Some equipment can be placed under staircases if they fit well. Make floor plans according to dimensions and ceiling heights.
Dimensions of equipment when you are on the equipment should be considered to make a comfortable placement. Check the power requirements of your equipment. The equipment may be self powered or may require 110v or 220v dedicated outlet. If you don't have an outlet that suits the power requirements of the equipment, you may have to get one installed.

Flooring is also an important factor to be considered. Make sure, the flooring used for home gym goes well with your fitness goals.

Benefits/ Cost savings of a home gym

Instead of taking a membership every year at a gym center, buying a home gym can save you a lot of money. Cost saving is always an important factor to be considered. You can plan it even at the lowest budget. Some companies also offer special discounts in some special seasons.

So you can just buy one and start your fitness routine at home.

Summary: Modern lifestyle has made us lead a stressful life. With busy schedules and stretched jobs, we hardly get any time for daily exercises. Hence, the need for a home gym.
