Choose Your Workout Style
When designing your basement gym, you should decide what workouts you like to do. This would be using a treadmill, spinning, weight-lifting, etc. This is important because if you are limited to the amount of space, you will want to choose machines that you will enjoy. Go ahead and plan your space according to the workout schedule you want to do and create a layout that suits you.
Select Injury Proof Flooring
A concrete floor would not be a good idea to exercise on for a variety of reasons. Firstly, if you drop heavy weights on it, it can damage it, as well hard floors do not absorb shock and it will give you knee pain in the future. Consider flooring your home gym with rubber floors, carpet tiles, foam-based flooring, or vinyl tiles. To ensure your home gym is functional and safe, it’s important the right flooring is selected.
Add Proper Air Circulation
Since working out is supposed to make you sweat, it’s important to include proper air circulation in your planning. Adding windows could be an option or add box fans, floor fans, air conditioning units, or dehumidifiers to keep the space well ventilated. If you don’t have proper circulation, the place will smell musty, and that’s not very motivating to work out in.
Build a Motivating Area
Many features can make a gym space motivating to work out in and it’s important you opt for them all. This includes adding large mirrors to ensure correct posture, include proper lighting to create an energetic atmosphere, choose bright and cold paint colours, hang motivational posters, and lastly, play good music! When you have all these factors working together, you will want to work out.
