Turning your Garage into a Home Gym


Everyone wants to get fit and look good. Often time is a prohibitive factor. By converting part of your garage into a home gym, you save time (travel) and money (gym fees).

A home gym is not for everyone. If you don’t have the commitment and drive to stick to your goals without a mentor, then you might have to continue going to the gym for a while. For the self motivated, the garage gym can be the perfect answer. It’s also very convenient – no matter what time it is day or night you can work out.

Floor exercises are an easy way to start without going to the expense of specialised equipment – start with that and see if you are committed enough to work out at home.

Treadmills, stair masters and ab equipment are easy to use for weight loss and aid in increasing muscle tone. Weight benches and universal systems are for bulking up and you can see results in just a few months.

Spend as much or as little as suits you. You can find treadmills and stair masters with great features and accessories for less than $300. Any good sporting goods store can help you with a range of dumbbells or weights, and the price tag is usually less than $100.

So if you are sick of missing out on your gym session because of work commitments, waiting in long lines to use the equipment or just commuting to the gym, set yourself up in the garage and get fit at home!
