What is the first thing that comes to your mind when we say home gym? You may not be the only one imagining a dark, stinky basement with a yoga mat and kettlebells lying in the middle. With Covid 19 hitting us hard and locking us up in our room, the last thing we want is a dark room with some dumbbells. We want a space in our home that can substitute for all the workouts we do in the beautiful gyms of Setia Eco Park.
Today we are going to redefine what a gym space is going to look like in our brand new homes. We want to help you create the dreamy gym space that will motivate us to do all the hard workouts by Pamela Reif and Chloe Ting. We encourage you to do all the crazy workouts from the fitness blender in a space that is personal and comfortable to you. Let’s take a look at how to achieve this in some with some very easy steps!
Spare Bedroom Into A Home Gym
Perhaps this is the most common and the most obvious tip on this list. If you have a spare big room that is underutilized, turn it into a gym. You won’t regret having space in the comfort of your home that is dedicated entirely to your workout needs and exercise time. This room can be your personal space even for meditation, long pilates sessions, and fun Zumba workouts too. You can include a screen or a TV where you could watch all the workouts and follow them. You can also improve the space up with your own selection of workout equipment, including a treadmill, maybe a bicycle, kettlebells, and so on.
Build Partitions In The Room For A Gym
When you have no room or space in your apartment at Setia Eco Park, it’s time we get a little innovative with a room divider or a partition. Partition is a cost-effective way of dividing your space functionally into two spaces. One is where we release all our tension and sweat through exercise, and the other is where we stay knee-deep in Cheetos on our bed.
Sometimes we forget that our backyard is the perfect place for workouts. Ofcourse, this tip is only applicable for those living with enough space for backyards and garages. You can utilize this space to include some home gym equipments, and even have your own tiny little sports field to play basketball, football or badminton.
Picking Good Colour Combinations
One of the biggest mistakes we make when building a gym space in our home is we choose the darkest color. This is fine if you love dark colors and you are motivated by them but dark colors tend to drain us a lot faster than brighter and happier colors. A white coat in your home gym may make all the difference and energize you during your workouts. Your interior and colors are just as important to your workout since the external environment plays a huge role in your motivation.
