Every year around the holidays, thousands flock to their local gym determined to get a head start on their new years’ fitness goals.
They sign up, muster all their motivation and walk in… only to find the place is crowded, smells terrible, and all the equipment they want to use is taken.
If they didn’t simply leave outright, they left feeling unsatisfied with their workout.
There’s a better way to invest in your health, avoid the monthly fees, crowds and the cold winter weather.
Home workouts help you achieve your strength and mental health goals, without added costs and stress.
As we approach the holiday season, read on for our Home Gym Gift Guide for Every Space. In this article, we go over…
- Why Home Workouts
- Home Gyms for Small Apartments
- Living Room Home Gyms
- Home Gyms in Spare Rooms
- The Garage or Basement Gym
Why home workouts?
Going to a commercial gym is a great way to access a variety of equipment, meet other fitness lovers, and get out of the house. The problem is that it can also mean less flexibility in your workouts.
With rising living costs, gas commute expenses and monthly fees add up. Also factor in time costs from traveling to the gym and extended wait times trying to get your desired machines… working out shouldn’t be this hard.
All of that is a non issue with home workouts.
No rush hour traffic, no waiting for equipment, and no worries about forgetting essential items like headphones or a water bottle at home.
Home Gyms for Small Apartments
Small spaces mean you need compact equipment.
Most small apartments feature one small bedroom and a small living / dining area attached to the kitchen. There’s not too much space or storage for gym equipment… but that doesn’t need to stop you.
The answer? Picking pieces that can be hidden out of plain sight.
Adjustable Dumbbells and a Folding Bench are the perfect option to allow challenging full body strength training in even the smallest apartments.
Once you’re done, just store them out of sight for a decluttered living space.
Living Room Home Gyms
Those with larger apartments can get away with keeping their Adjustable Dumbbells on display with a storage rack.
Doing this helps with motivation and habit building as you see your gear every day… making it that much easier to pick up the dumbbells and smash out a few sets.
The Better Body Twist Adjustable Dumbbells and Rack are modern and beautifully designed, making them something a fitness lover would be proud to keep on display.
The Premium Bench gives you full control over exercise variations with 13 adjustable back settings and 3 adjustable seat settings.
Home Gyms for Spare Rooms
Access to a spare room, like an unused bedroom, office or den, means more chances to customize your home gym setup.
While a dumbbell set is great, things like a squat rack or an air bike can help you reach your fitness goals faster - whether you hope to increase strength or improve your conditioning.
The Garage or Basement Gym
Have an under-utilized garage or basement?
It might be time to transform it into your dream gym.
Having a designated large space means the ability to build your dream home gym filled with only the equipment you need so you can work out whenever you want, with whoever you want.
No late fees, no crowds, no smells.
Not having access to a garage or basement doesn’t mean lesser quality workouts.
But if you have one and decide to convert it into your designated workout space, your dream gym can become a reality.
The New Years' Resolution Bundle
A bench, a pair of adjustable dumbbells and rack are all you need for an instant home gym that allows a vast variety of workout options.
To help you get a head start on your New Years' Resolutions, we put together the New Years' Resolution Bundle - a package deal that saves you 10% on the Twist Adjustable Dumbbells, Rack and Premium Bench.
