Basement Home Gym Decorating

Great Tips For Setting Up Your Basement Home Gym For Fun And Safety!

Setting up your basement home gym for fun and safety is a topic being talked about more often than ever before. Not long ago a home gym consisted of a few barbells, a rickety old weight bench and maybe an old exercise bike that mainly was used for hanging clothes on.

Today, people are paying special attention to the style of their home gyms. They are looking for ways to make their workouts fun and inviting while still being safe.

A home gym needs to be inviting for you to stay motivated to continue working out. A dungeon-like environment, like an unfinished basement just won't do. Instead, a room filled with quality equipment and good lighting is necessary.

Look for well designed equipment, that is adjustable, easy to learn and use in a safe manner. All parts should be easily removed and replaced and there shouldn't be any design flaws.

The American Council on Exercise recommends inspecting a piece of equipment for safety, serviceability, design and the right features before purchasing.

3 Basement Home Gym Decorating Ideas

Every home gym needs to have the basic equipment for your type of workout and have added gym rubber flooring. But what about the decor?

It doesn’t have to be a dull, uninviting space. These home gym decorating ideas will perk up your space.

Don’t forget the entertainment! Placing a stereo or a television with a DVD player in home gym design is a valuable addition.

Music is helpful to most when they are working out. And a DVD player is essential for playing videos of different workout routines you are doing.

Turn on the lights. Consider your lighting when it comes to decorating your home gym.

Natural lighting is best but sometimes you will need to add additional sources of light. Use sconces, overhead lights and task lights for different areas of your room.

Add some air! You will need to keep the room well ventilated not only to keep the room from smelling like your gym shoes, but to provide fresh air as well for those steamy workouts.
