Home gym ideas.

How to make a home gym

First, choose which room or area you want to transform. Then, decide what equipment you want – this’ll vary with different fitness goals, so make sure you know what kit you’ll need to work towards them. Lastly, think about all the small but important extras. Speakers are a must-have for motivational tunes, floor-length mirrors help to master form and technique, gym mats protect your floor from equipment and provide a safe surface for exercising and fans will be a saviour when you’re all hot and sweaty!

    Bars and weights may look like basic kit, but they have a huge amount of strength and muscle building benefits. You can work almost every muscle group just by adjusting the types of exercises you do with them. And with separate weight plates available, you’re not restricted to one weight – we know one size doesn’t fit all!
