27 Home Gym Designs To Help You Get Fit

We don’t always have time to go to the gym. Hell, we don’t always want to go to the gym but our health and summer version of ourselves requires it and that’s why we have to make the most of our spare time and do some reps before we collapse next to our loved ones.

Home gyms are not just solutions to your inner voice rational thinking about not going to the gym, but also a money/time saver trick that will help you stay in shape and in pain.

It’s time to use that spare room in your garage or the empty corner of your living room and put it to good use. We compiled a specific list of home gym design ideas that will help you plan and build your next home gym with a home gym storage so that you can work out whenever you want, wherever you want.

6 rooms, 27 design ideas:

  1. Balcony
  2. Garden
  3. Garage
  4. Basement
  5. Living Room
  6. Bathroom (Yes even there!)

Balcony Gym Designs

Whether you’re living in an apartment or a house you can transform your balcony into a small gym and at the same time enjoy a view of the city or your favorite neighbor. Fresh air, envious looks, and sun. What more can you ask for? Sure your neighbors will see you, but at the same time maybe you’ll motivate them too. Talk about altruism right?

Garden View Home Gym

If you feel that you need to keep your backyard, a backyard, you can still use one of your spare rooms looking straight into it, and gaze into its serene environment. You’ll be working out in a gym that is stylish, functional and a shrewd investment in your property – not to mention entirely separating it from your home and at the same time enjoying the bushes (without having to trim them).

Garage Gym Designs

Amazon was built in a garage and so can your body be too! The best part about a garage is that its completely separated from your house, which gives you a feeling that you’re actually going to the gym, even though it’s just a few steps away from your front door.

Living Room Workout Space

The living room is for chilling right? Wrong. The living room is a place to live – exercising prolongs your life which means you’ll live longer in your living room. You can’t argue with that right? Perpetuum mobile anyone?

Bathroom Home Gym Designs

The most unusual place to exercise, but if used correctly you can squat, do pull-ups and planks while showering! Okay, maybe not at the same time but you can immediately jump into the shower afterward.
