How a Designated Training Space Can Impact Your Goals

Entering the final lap of 2017 means celebrating the holidays with family and friends and reflecting upon all you have accomplished. But we also can’t help but begin to think about what next year holds. 2018 plans are starting to take shape at work and at home – but what does your personal fitness plan look like for next year? Are you joining a new gym? Returning to your current gym? Hiring a personal trainer? Or following your favorite workout routines from home?

Whether the “at-home workout” makes up 20% or 100% of your weekly exercise routine next year, a dedicated workout space 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.

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.

Accountability – A few of your favorite training tools at home can serve as a visual reminder of your commitment. Power Systems Master Coach PJ Stahl said it best:

“A home gym creates a permanent visual space that will be a constant reminder of your fitness goals. This is your own ‘accountability partner’ there for you whenever you need it.”

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 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.

We have designed three home gym kits each paired with sample workouts from our Master Coaches to provide inspiration for your perspiration. Each kit is designed to fit into a home training space with versatile pieces that complement any training style. And with three options for each kit, you can put together a home gym space on any budget.

The Home Gym Kits

Perfect for circuit training, cardio, and/or strength workouts indoors. These pieces are fairly small, lightweight, and easy to store away when not in use.

The On-The-Go Kits

If you like to workout outside, these tools will be perfect for training sessions from your back yard to your neighborhood park. Each of these pieces are portable and can fit in a small storage bin or in the trunk of a car.

The Garage Gym Kits

If you have a garage or basement you can convert to your own Iron Paradise – then the Garage Gym kits are a place to start. Here you will find all the tools you need for your WOD or Olympic lifts.
