Maintaining one’s health is a big priority for individuals and families across the nation but staying healthy means much more than eating a balanced diet. More and more families are recognizing the value of exercise to stay fit and combat the rigors of day to day stress. While it is not uncommon to find the odd treadmill or set of dumbbells in many homes, planning a home gym is not just about accumulating an array of gym equipment. A functional home gym begins with a well thought out design that is both functional and motivating.
Custom Home Gym Setup to Best Suit Your Needs
If you are a fitness guru or a fitness novice for that matter, the idea of being able to work out from the luxury of your own home is an enticing one. The knowledgeable design experts at Future Vision Remodeling give homeowners the ability to be in control, by working with the homeowner to create a custom home gym that is designed to suit all of their specifications and requirements. The majority of home gyms are used by a number of family members and one of the main priorities is to design a remodel that incorporates the workout and exercise priorities of the entire family.
Custom Layouts to Create the Perfect Space for Your Workout Room
Staying fit and healthy is taking a turn away from traditional bulky exercise equipment and is focusing instead on CrossFit and other combined strength/cardio inspired programs. In essence home gyms across the nation are changing dramatically with fitness experts calling for new designs which incorporate multi-functional weightlifting equipment, free weights and racks while also concentrating on providing enough floor space to perform exercise programs that incorporate mind and body such as Pilates, yoga and cardio routines while also concentrating on the preferences of the home owner.
Home Gym on Ground Floor or Upstairs in Attic
While many homeowners consider a ground floor for a home gym, don’t disregard your attic if you have one. Attics have recently become an incredibly popular space for a home gym, not only can they accommodate equipment, most attics have windows that provide natural lighting. Insulating your walls and ceiling along with additional bracing will ensure that the room is sound proof and strong enough to support heavy exercise equipment.
Home Gym Flooring Ideas
Your flooring is one of the most important elements when it comes to planning a home gym. Gym floors are susceptible to a considerable amount of wear and tear so depending on your work out style consider adding sheet vinyl or hardwood flooring that is coated with a polyurethane finish. Both of these types of flooring hold up well and are low-maintenance. Other options include carpet tiles which are not only resilient; they also absorb sound and can be easily replaced if one should be damaged without the inconvenience and expense of replacing the entire flooring. If you plan on working out with some serious weight, a rubberized flooring system that interlocks is incrediblly durable and holds up well to the punishment of dropped weights.
