Picture a gym that never closes for bad weather, always has your favorite machine open, and membership is free. Are you picturing your own house? You should be. This year, bring your goals closer to home—really close. An in-home gym is the ideal way to step up your game in 2021 and set yourself up for long-term success. Getting started is easier than you might think.
One of the best parts of a home gym is that no space is too small. Maybe you’ve got an entire basement at your service, or maybe you roll a yoga mat out at the end of your bed. Whatever you’re working with, just make sure to keep the space clear and designated, so nothing can get in the way of your goals.
Get your own biggest fan.
Having a cheering section of family and friends will motivate you for those days that you don’t feel like working out. And having the right ceiling fan will keep you cool for those days you feel like working your hardest.
Shed some light on your progress.
The right fixture will fit your workout style. Bright lights are a necessity if you’re working with heavy or dangerous equipment, so you can always see exactly what you’re up against. Find softer or adjustable fixtures for workout spaces that may also be moonlighting as a bedroom or living room. And don’t forget spotlights to shine on yourself when you start crushing those goals.
Find your space.
