It’s not surprising anymore to find people who get an expensive annual gym membership and end up wasting it because they skip working out after the first few sessions or weeks. Whether it’s stress or being busy that causes them to stop going, one definite factor at play is the distance of the gym from their home, even if it is just a few blocks away.
One way some people avoid this is to set up their own gym at home. When you buy land and house packages in Perth, it’s possible to have a spare bedroom, extra space in your garage or a big outdoor living area that you can convert in to a gym. The equipment may be a substantial investment, but the price, the privacy and the proximity can urge you to work out more often.
There are several ways you can design your gym to make it more appealing and keep you motivated to stick to a healthy, active lifestyle. Here are some home gym design ideas you can try:
- Create a deluxe fitness studio with rubber mats or anti-skid flooring, air-conditioning, large floor-to-ceiling mirrors and entertainment devices like a flat-screen television and surround-sound system
- Set up a place for both recreation and fitness in your courtyard with an area for yoga or aerobics or even a small plunge pool if you can have on constructed with your home.
