Beat the Heat! 6 Steps for Creating the Perfect Indoor Gym
June 24, 2015
It’s always a good
time to think about getting closer to your fitness goals. And no matter your
fitness style, creating a home gym is a great way to help you do this. When you
have your own fitness area at home, you might even be able to save a little
money by cancelling your gym membership. Here are some design tips to get the
most out of your indoor gym:
It’s hard to free
your mind and be present in your exercise routine when there’s a stack of
papers or toys right in front of you. Clutter adds to your stress making you
feel disorganized and scattered. Create a peaceful area you’ll be happy to be
in and leave the chaos in another room.
Plants help to create
a calming environment by bringing splashes of nature into your home. But don’t
go overboard. One or two plants are all you need to spruce up your daily
colors make you feel calm. If whites and grays are too banal, try a soothing
blue, purple or yellow to boost your mood.
in natural light
installing harsh fluorescent lighting, try positioning your area in a room that
receives plenty of natural light. This lighting is more energizing and relaxing
than lights from directly above. If this isn’t possible, use calming lighting
techniques such as sconces and lamps.
Your weights and yoga
mat aren’t the most attractive decorations, so it’s a good idea to invest in a
good organization solution. A shelf, bookcase or storage solution to hide your
equipment are all excellent options.
This is a room for
fitness; you’re going to need space to move, lunge, do jumping jacks, practice
vinyasa flow and run in place. It may seem obvious, but you’ll need at least a
few feet in all directions. You'll avoid hitting your head or limbs on any
objects when you give yourself adequate room.
