Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: share your home gym! Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
Let me start off by saying that I feel super lucky to have workout equipment in the basement of our house. I know that’s definitely considered a luxury and I don’t take it for granted! I would say our home gym really started to come together last year. I ordered a few sets of dumbbells right before everything shut down due to Covid-19. As I spent more time in home gym, I started to think of ways to shift equipment to make the most of the space in the room. I finally achieved the look I envisioned in the Spring and I love the results! Here’s a quick look into my home gym.
The Peloton treadmill was added to the home gym family a few months ago. When re-doing the room, I first started with the treadmill to make sure it was in a safe location, facing away from the wall. After that was set up, I moved everything else around. There’s also enough space behind the treadmill to safely do the strength portions for the treadmill bootcamps.
Towels and Accessories
This basket is perfect for holding all my gym accessories – multiple towels, lifting gloves, jump rope, foam knee pad, etc. I like having everything in one spot so that I can easily grab what I need before or during a class. It saves me a lot of time in the mornings as well.
We’ve had our Peloton bike for about 3.5 years and it’s such a great investment! With the addition of bike bootcamps, I moved the bike in front of this wall so that I would have space behind it to do the strength portions of those classes.
This might be my favorite area of the home gym. Although I need a bigger weight rack, this will do for now. I love that I have a variety of weights ranging from 5-30lbs to help me get stronger!
Tell me: What’s the favorite part of your home gym?
