Is your local gym too crowded these days? A customized home gym may be just the thing you need to jump start your workout routine. With a little creativity and research, adding a home gym can not only motivate you to meet your fitness goals, but it may also be a great selling feature.
To begin, decide which activities and equipment you want. Consider what equipment will be highly used by yourself and potential buyers. Ceiling height, natural light, flooring, ventilation, access to entertainment like TVs and speakers all should be factored into your home gym plan. In addition, mirrors will add the feeling of space, inspirational words on the walls will add just the right motivation to keep you going. Look for subtle ways to store weights, treadmills and other moveable fitness equipment. This will help to keep workout areas open and clutter free.
When thinking about marketing your home, it’s important to consider what buyers may be looking for. Yoga, Pilates, cardio, cycling, kick-boxing and mixed martial arts are all activities a home gym space can be customized to include. Adding spa features can also entice you finish your workout and enjoy a post workout treat. Keep décor simple. You want to make this space worth skipping the trip to the gym.
Add interesting light fixtures, fans and paint colors that flow with the rest of your home’s décor. Or, include a touch of your favorite sports team. This may include photos and awards of your athletic achievements to make “going to the gym” productive. Consider what you find motivating and rejuvenating.
In the end, if you’re scheduling your workout time around gym and street traffic, consider saving the fee of a gym membership and adding a home gym. This home gym can be a value boosting, customized fitness space that is all about you. It’s a great way to pamper yourself in 2016 and will move you ever closer to obtaining that hot and healthy bod you promised yourself this year.
