Is it one of your lifelong dreams to own your very own home gym? Home gyms give you flexibility, privacy and save you time on travel – you also won’t need to break the bank every month for a gym subscription. Not only will you reap the financial benefits of your own private sanctuary over time, but you’ll also be able to completely tailor your gym to your personal fitness goals and find yourself feeling more motivated to stick to your workouts and exercises.
With the current situation surrounding the pandemic, there has been no better time than the present to build your dream home gym, and our team at Dynamax Medicine Balls have you covered.
What to consider when building a home gym
- Plan, plan, plan
- Location/room you’d like as your gym
- Amount of space available
- Noise levels
- Your fitness goals – what do you want to achieve?
- Your budget
Remember, before you even start you’ll need to carefully plan out your fitness goals so you can estimate the amount of space you will need. Want lots of heavy equipment? You’ll need a large space on a lower ground floor. Want to work out in the early morning? Maybe choose a space away from sleeping family members…
Perhaps your hardest decision will be where to build your home gym. Garage conversions are extremely popular as the flooring is designed to hold excessive weight, or you might be able to utilise space in your home office or spare room. If you’re limited by minimal indoor space, you could consider creating a garden gym – we’ve even seen some impressive driveway gyms tagged through our Instagram!
Once you’ve got your fitness goals and chosen your space, it’s time for the most exciting part of the process – buying the equipment!
Kitting out your home gym
Unless you have limitless space for your home gym, you’ll need to be savvy about the equipment you buy. For most people, you’ll want to work out different areas of your body on different days, so it’s important to take this into consideration before jumping in head first.
This is where the medicine ball comes in. From upper body to lower body, the mighty med ball enables you to work out your entire body with explosive strength. Our balls are used by elite athletes worldwide due to their ability to upgrade any workout and develop raw power.
On top of the medicine ball’s ability to give you an insane workout, they are also incredibly easy to store. So if you have limited space in your home gym, or perhaps you need to tidy away each time you finish your workout, a medicine ball is your best friend.
From heavy medicine balls to mini medicine balls, you’ll be able to find a perfect fit for your fitness goals. Their versatility means they can help strengthen all key muscle groups and can help reduce the amount of equipment you need to invest in for your home gym.
