Are you thinking about using a spare room as a fitness training center? A home fitness training center is a smart idea for people with a busy schedule (which includes almost all of us). This is especially true for stay at home mothers or fathers; for them getting to the gym can be pain.

But even with a home gym, the hardest part is using the home gym consistently for more than a few weeks after you start. The easiest thing (and the most fun) to do is use the following tips to design your spare room or attic room as a fitness training center.

Here we will show you how to setup a spare room as a fitness training center, and how to keep your motivation going.

Steps

  1. The first step is to visualize your end goal. Knowing what your desired outcome is will help you outfit your fitness center.
  2. Next, you must determine any other purposes the fitness room will serve. Will it also be used as a playroom, office or TV room, etc?
  3. Calculate your available space. Determine square footage and ceiling height. Also consider these factors:

         – Fresh air circulation.
         – Are your floors wood or concrete?
         – Do you have neighbors above or below you?

  5. Buy a stability ball for $20 to $50 for your core work and balance training. The ball can also be used as a weight bench.
  6. The hardest thing to deal with in a home gym is the lack of camaraderie. Camaraderie is the reason why gyms are so popular. You get to know the other gym goers and they help hold you accountable. So how can you fix this missing element? The solution that works for a lot of people is using DVDs. There are tons of fitness programs you can purchase for as little as $10-70$. It is important to choose a program with an instructor who has a personality that is pleasing to you.

Tips

  • You can use the money you save on a monthly gym membership to buy more fitness equipment each month. Use the $50 to buy more DVDs.
  • Purchase as many DVDs from this instructor as possible so you don’t get bored with the same routines.
  • If you are on a tight budget, you can drive around wealthier neighborhoods to find potential exercise equipment that people have discarded. You may find benches, weights, and if you’re lucky even an aerobic machine.
  • You can try skipping rope for your aerobic training if it’s too cold or rainy to train outside.
