Technology has made it easy to take workouts beyond the walls of the gym and into the homes and onto the smartphones of millions – thus making it easier to get a great workout in from your own home. There are also a growing number of fitness enthusiasts who are creating their own at-home workout space to enhance their regular gym time throughout the week.
Whether the “at-home workout” makes up 20% or 100% of your weekly exercise program, creating a dedicated workout space has many benefits and can make a real impact on your training goals.
- Time Saver – Think of all the time you will save without having to commute to the gym. When you are done, you can jump right into your own shower. It might even save you enough time to prep a quick, healthy breakfast.
- Eliminates Distractions – It is much easier to get your sweat on if you don’t have to share your space with the living room or the home office.
- Increased Accessibility – A dedicated workout space in your home will be set up and ready to go when you are. If you spend 5-10 minutes moving furniture and pulling out all the items you need from the closet, you can’t maximize your time and each workout will become less convenient for you.
A great at-home workout starts with equipping yourself with the right tools and space to not only meet your training needs but to maximize your success. For example, if you are planning to use a home gym space for a quick and easy workout when you can’t get to the gym, then a few basic essentials might be all you need. However, if you are looking to prioritize your goal-specific training sessions primarily from the comfort and convenience of your home, then spending additional time and resources to identify and equip a designated home gym space is essential for success.
