Is your New Year’s resolution to get healthier, exercise more, or lose weight (or all of the above)? A home gym makes exercise convenient, increasing your likelihood of working out – so no matter the time of year, you’ll still be going strong in your workout space.
Classic Home Gyms
Convert an extra room into a fantasy home gym like this one, which comes complete with an inspirational view. Tip: Buy used equipment online or from a professional gym — save your waistline and your budget.
Keep your mood lifted by painting your space a bright color, like this exercise room with a chartreuse wall. If yellow-green isn’t your thing, try bold pink or soothing blue. Add clever storage to hold equipment, like dumbbells and extra towels.
No space? No problem. Even the smallest rooms can be converted into a fitness area. This attic packs a lot of equipment into a tiny space, including a TRX system and an exercise bar. The uncovered window lets natural light flood the space, which is painted a soothing greige. Add a sophisticated light fixture to your exercise room to balanced the industrial equipment.
Colorful Home Gyms
Another cool way to spruce up a home gym is a wall or ceiling mural. This fitness room’s pink walls are set off by a large, graphic print, which makes the room ultra-feminine.
Surfboards give this coastal home gym a unique focal point. On days that the surf’s not up, the owner can stay in shape with a run on the treadmill. Decorating with a collection — from functional, beautiful surfboards to inspiring, framed photos — will set your home gym apart.
If you’re lucky enough to have an unused garage or outbuilding, it can make the perfect space for a home gym makeover. The pagoda roof is a sophisticated touch in the tough workout room, while white walls and black-framed prints keep the decor lines clean and strong.
In this magazine editor’s homey gym, wood-covered walls play off the rustic tones of the vintage-looking rowing machine. Padded tiles protect the floor and are easy to clean. White subway tiles and a dark brown ceiling make the space feel timeless.
A home exercise room doesn’t have to be boring. Black-and-white graphic wallpaper in a tribal pattern livens up this small basement space. Putting a piece of equipment in each corner maximizes the square footage.
So don’t join an expensive gym to keep your fitness resolutions in the New Year. Instead, play around with a few square feet and see how even a small space can bring energy to your life.
