10 Things Every Home Gym Needs
A few months ago, we decided to turn our "Office" into a gym. We really wanted to make the most of the space, so we planned out the necessities.
This is important, so that you don't damage your floor with equipment. I bought these at Sam's Club.
2. Cardio Equipment
We went back and forth on this decision, since there's really only room for one large piece. We settled on this treadmill, because it was free.
We already had the smaller set and the adjustable ones. I purchased the 20 pound weight bar for around $40.
4. BOSU Ball
This was pretty expensive at $100, but it is very versatile, and is easily stored.
5. Weight Bench
This was fairly easy to put together (I did it myself) We just push it out of the way, when it's not in use.
6. Yoga Stuff
I absolutely hate missing Hot Yoga! My schedule changed, and I wasn't able to make it to class regularly. With my mat, block, and space heater, I can transform this space into my own Hot Yoga studio.
7. Smart TV
Turns out, our office is the one room that we don't have cable in. But, with a Smart TV, I can find awesome Free workouts on Youtube!
8. Suspension Training
I love TRX classes, so to bring that into our home gym, I found this one that hangs over a door.
9. Misc. Ab Equipment
There are so many great exercises that you can do for your abs. Adding a weight ball or roller is a good way to mix it up. The disks are amazing for legs, and abs, when used in plank.
I think we will add another mirror eventually. You really need at least 1, so you can check your form.
