The Global Health & Fitness Association reported that in 2021, 50 percent of people found that they were less active during pandemic-related shutdowns in comparison to prior activity levels. Plus, one out of 10 people admitted they stopped exercising altogether.
Numerous gym-goers were in a tough position with gyms closed due to restrictions or people avoiding them as a precaution against COVID-19. As a result, many turned to at-home workouts and home gyms to keep moving. Shopping data showed a 131 percent growth among sports and outdoor items, including gym equipment.
There are key pieces of equipment to build your home gym around. Treadmills – many different versions now to align with your fitness goals. Cardio equipment is a staple for any gym setup, but for those without a lot of space, kettlebells, dumbbells, and mini bands can be all that’s needed to get a great workout. The extra benefit of these pieces is that they are mobile so you can take your gym with you.
Other items can play a big role when it comes to optimizing a home gym space and living a well-rounded healthy lifestyle. There are multiple factors that go into having a wonderful at-home setup. Understanding how much space you need, the location in the home, the aesthetics of the space, and even soundproofing.
Knowing where to put the gym in the home and soundproofing the room is just as important as the equipment you put in there. Don’t make the mistake of putting the fitness facility upstairs as the sound of equipment carries throughout the home. For example, if you have a treadmill, the bouncing sound could be annoying to others.
Considering the location, equipment, and additional accessories one may be able to incorporate will make all the difference during an at-home workout. Staying active is as important as eating healthy.
