Drag dumbbells, yoga mats, workouts -DVDs and other related items to the specified area. Sort through what you have and throw away anything old, damaged or broken. When you discard old items, look at what you have left. , donate the items to a local goodwill to save space for items you really want to use.
Step 2 – Designing the space
Once you have shown your gear to what you are actually using, take an inventory and look for holes . Do you need weights? New resistance bands? Exercise balls? A screen of some kind for your training DVD or streams? Gather everything that goes into space and place everything in the middle of the room. It is important to give each item a dedicated home as you build the room so that you do not try to jump jacks in the midst of chaos and clutter.
When assembling or purchasing necessary exercise products for your gym, consider getting some compartments or shelves to organize the space . Place a shelf, store bought or DIY against the wall to give you plenty of space in the middle of the room. The most important thing is that you have an organizational system that is secure and feels intuitive to you.
Step 3 – Test Run
Once everything is in place, give the room a test run (or three). Chances are you'll find something that just doesn't feel right and you want to adjust the space to work for you. If you have large machines such as ellipticals to move, ask a friend to help you so that you do not pull any of the muscles you are about to build.
When you are satisfied that the space is working as it needs, add some personal touch with decor, wall art, lighting or plants. Just remember that safety must always be a top priority in a gym, you have to leave yourself room for as much movement as possible.

Take rolling trays and organize the products in a way that works for your workouts, or find a simple stash spot for your stuff, so you don't have to hunt for all your accessories every time you start a session. When it's crunch time, the fewer obstacles on your way, the more likely you are to get into high gear.
If you have a budget, skip the treadmill and find a workout program that gets you into workout clothes every day, or just pick up some simple routines that use your own body weight to build muscle and stress. Exercise apps on your phone take up no space in the room but still give you access to all the inspiration you need to start feeling healthier and better.
