Home gym ideas: Work up a sweat without leaving the house

The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us all a new way of living. With gyms shutting down and workouts going online, we’re finding new and innovative home gym ideas to get those gains and keep ourselves trim.

It’s not easy. Whether you’re working from home, caring for your kids, trying to keep the spark alive or unable to motivate yourself unless your personal trainer is screaming in your ear, then carving out time for a daily workout seems impossible.

That’s why we’ve put together these inspiring home gym ideas to keep you on the move. Build up a sweat and reap the rewards of all those endorphins by incorporating a few key design elements within the four walls of your home.

Benefits of a home gym

Exercise is proven to reduce stress, help you sleep and improve your mood. That’s why enabling these benefits is great for your mental and physical health.

A home gym also offers several other benefits, such as:

  • Flexibility: A home gym lets you work out when it suits you. Fitting your session around your daily routine means you don’t have to schedule a gym visit to reap the benefits.
  • Comfort: Forget activewear fashion trends. Working out at home means you wear what you want and sweat as much as you want without anyone seeing you.
  • Savings: Gym memberships don’t come cheap. Save money by building a home gym and only filling it with the equipment you need. That way, you don’t pay a premium on equipment you don’t use!
  • Variety:  No more queuing to use the machines or floor space you need. Building your own gym means you get as much variety as you want. You’re no longer confined to the opening times, capacity or capabilities of your local gym.

Like what you see? There’s plenty more where this came from. Discover more ideas, inspiration, tips and how-tos via Checkatrade’s blog.
