The Living Room Gym
THE LIVING ROOM GYM
When space is tight, home gym equipment can end up in the living room. While this doesn’t give you a dedicated space to train, it can be all you need to keep your workout routine intact and top of mind. Here are a few things to keep in mind while creating a fitness space in your living room.
- A living room may be full of entertainment options like TV and music, which can take your mind off of your cardio exercises at home.
- Easy access to your gym equipment makes it easier to get workouts done.
GYM EQUIPMENT IDEAS
- One piece of cardio equipment. Consider a foldable treadmill, indoor cycle or rowing machine, all of which can be easily moved out of the way when not in use.
- Strength training tools like kettlebells and dumbbells that can be stored out of view, and an exercise mat for stretching and yoga.
- Consider the aesthetics of the equipment. Cardio equipment like an IC5 indoor cycle or Row HX trainer have design elements that you might not mind showing off.
- If noise is an issue, consider cardio equipment like cross-trainers that have nearly silent operation.
