All you need to know about designing a home gym that you’ll actually use.

No matter if you want to burn off those holiday cookies or achieve a healthier lifestyle, a home gym can be more convenient – and safer, as the pandemic continues.
For many people, the start of a new year means setting new fitness resolutions. A home gym can help you burn off all those holiday cookies or get in shape to start off a healthier year – and keep you safe from the pandemic. It’s not a necessity to have a dedicated home gym, but if you have the space, it can be a real luxury – especially if it’s well designed. To make it a place where you’ll enjoy spending time, give it some thought and concentrate on “It should have a pleasant atmosphere and suitable lighting.
Designers told us how they create a gym that is hard-wearing and a pleasure to use.
 Choose a well-lighted room.
Although it’s nice to have adequate space for your gym, it doesn’t need to be a huge room. “It’s not the darkest and most obscure corner of the house; on the contrary, it’s a bright, sunny spot.”The gym should be located near a bathroom, because “chances are, you’ll want to shower after your workout.” If you’re going all out, add a steam room or sauna to the gym. Knowing which equipment you will actually use is important since there are many ways to work out, from free weights to elliptical machines. There is now a blend of technology and luxury in the gym, and that’s the best ever.” Interactive fitness systems like Mirror, Tonal, and Forme are as unobtrusive as a wall-mounted mirror or picture frame.
Develop a plan for Gym layout.
It takes more than stacking equipment in an unused room to design a home gym – it requires creating a layout that flows.”If there’s a treadmill, there needs to be space behind it, in case someone falls off.” As well as space between machines.”Electrical outlets are essential near machines like treadmills and Peloton bikes, so extension cords don’t run across the room add floor outlets directly below the machines. Leaving open space in the middle of the room will make your gym feel less crowded, and will also enable you to practice yoga, stretching, and calisthenics.
Address the floor and walls beautifully.
A gym’s flooring and walls should be durable and easy to clean. Another option is to use cushioned mats, which can be laid out separately in discrete workout zones across a hard floor of wood, laminate, or concrete. “I would recommend two mats – one for weights, one for yoga.” Mats can also be positioned under stationary bikes to dampen noise and catch sweat drops.
Pay attention to internal lighting.
You do not need to flood your workout space with the kind of overhead light you’d find in a commercial gym. Dimming multiple fixtures with multiple layers of lighting can provide a more inviting atmosphere and allow light levels to be adjusted to suit various activities.
 Furniture and Accessories.
If you keep your gym clean and tidy, you will find it easier to stick with an exercise routine. Consider where you’ll store foam rollers, resistance bands, or boxing gloves when you’re not using them. In addition to providing a place to rest between exercises, benches, stools, and chairs can also be used to throw towels. Add audiovisual equipment to the room if you like watching TV or listening to music while you exercise. Consider installing a small station similar to a kitchenette when space permits. There is also a space for clean towels and a hamper for used towels. Our goal is to make it look and feel like a high-end gym as much as possible.

Fitness – A Sign of Self-love

Fatness to Fitness is the most debated topic in today’s world. Most of the teens and young adults are influenced by movie stars and models who keep their bodies fit and healthy. The misconception of the youth is to reduce weight and look beautiful rather than staying fit and healthy. Men want to look hefty whereas women want to look slim and glam. As a result of consciousness of the outer appearance, people forget how they torment their body by taking steroids that damages the organs. Care for one’s body, the attention they give to the looks is appreciable but often people forgets to understand the primary goal of staying healthy and fit which helps us glow from the inside.
Fitness – A Sign of Self-love
A healthy life keeps an individual happy and cheerful. Spreading love to the world happens, when it overflows from within. Love and care that we give to ourselves help to create energy and a positive vibe around us. The first step towards self-love is being happy about how you look and feel great for the way you are. Taking a lot of inputs or comments from others about one’s appearance ruins their confidence and satisfying other ruins their happiness. Both aspects affect your health internally and externally. Fitness is not working hard in the gym or doing heavy workouts and torturing your body. It’s as simple as bringing small changes in the lifestyle like changing preference of taking stairs or taking a walk to the nearby store. Fitness is not only about the looks, it a way of pampering that you give to yourself. When you give up on something that you love to maintain your physical appearance is not self-love. It’s a way of punishing yourself; it’s an act of being unkind to oneself. Strict diets may look as if you look healthy but it’s more like injecting an adulterate a healthy vegetable or fruit to make it look fresh and attractive. Intake of all kinds of food helps an individual healthier and happier from inside and exercising helps an individual to energize and stays active all day.
Exercises – Power bank of the day
Everyone knows that exercising is good for health; keep us fresh the entire day and it is an important part of our daily lifestyle. But it looks like a herculean task that is ready to swallow us when we starting doing exercises. Most of us would have gone through this before. Have you ever thought why exercising or the workouts are so hard and painful? It’s because we fail to enjoy doing workouts. There are no ground rules for exercising. The ultimate aim of exercising is to stay fit and active. But not all of us understand that rather we are either concentrate on looks or calculating the calories that we had burnt on that day. Say, for instance, practicing for the cultural events at school or college always excited us. We never bothered about the amount of energy that we spend while dancing or enacting a play. Playing with children at home gives us so much happiness and joy; calories are burnt even in that process. Every individual is unique and their way of functioning of the body and mind is also different. It is important to identify your exercise routine to keep yourself healthy and happy.
