Home gyms are becoming more and more popular. Many users convert their rooms in order to fit their fitness equipment and create a good home gym in their home. The convenience and time saving is what makes home gyms preferred. Before you zero in on a home gym of your choice, you need to consider your fitness need, the space available and then make a budget accordingly.
Most important thing - do not cram your home gym with all sorts of fitness equipment. For instance, if you want to lose weight or gain cardio resistance, then equipment like a powered cross trainer, a mechanized treadmill and a Swiss ball is enough. For a good strength training, a smith machine would be a great choice. The cost of building a multi-gym to tone-up muscles can cost a cool $4800 upwards. This will include things like lighting, flooring, ventilation system, and music.
The minimum area needed to build a home gym is about 150 square feet. You must have some free space to manuveur. In case you have a two hundred squares of feet on your disposal, you can fit in a Jacuzzi. Apart from the main machines like the treadmill, the power plate machines; you should also keep dumb bells, resistance bands and an aerobic box. I suggest you stay away from the basement if you are building your home gym.
Be aware that flooring is an important part when you are building your own home gym. You have a freedom to choose amont two types of flooring, rubber and vynil. All impacts will be cushioned by rubber flooring, even falling. Unlike with carpeted floorimng and tiled floor, you will be able to stand, walk and run comfortably. The plus is that a rubber flooring reduces the impact you create with your fitness equipment. Rubber flooring is easy to maintain and clean as well. Vynil flooring is easily cleaned, which makes it hygienic, and the noise is reduced to aceptable level.
