Fitness is obviously a big part of many people’s lives. The idea of living a life without this kind of physical stimulation is alien to so many people at this juncture (or at least it should be) – it’s such a big part of many communities and cultures (like CrossFit and running groups).
But, not everyone can get to a gym at this moment in time. Be it due to their own personal commitments or due to the fact that corona virus is playing havoc with our world right now.
While home workout programs do a great job, many people still need to have a gym environment with the right equipment in order to get into the workout mood (or routine).
Once lockdowns became prevalent across the entire world, many people decided it was high time for a home gym. They didn’t like the idea of heading to a public place for a workout and chose to create a substitute in their houses or garages. Some made extremely attractive little setups that enabled massive fitness gains; some didn’t quite create what they fully desired!
If you’re currently looking to create something like this, then be sure to install all the right bits and pieces. Here’s what you can do:
Get dumbbells and/kettlebells
Having the right sized dumbbells and kettlebells will skyrocket your weight loss and muscle gain success!
With the right program and high quality form you will be astonishing how fit and lean you can get with just these few pieces of equipment.
The Right Flooring
You’re going to need to make sure you have the right floor when it comes to your home gym, as the wrong floor will not protect the flooring underneath OR your expensive workout equipment. Getting some high quality rubber gym flooring or something similar will do the trick, and last for many years.
A Squat Rack
If you have the space (and money) a high quality squat rack can open up all kinds of possibilities for fun workouts!
With that squat rack you’ll want to pickup a barbell and some weights to load up on the barbell. Just make sure you know how to properly use all that new equipment.
If you decided to go this route just make sure you have a high ceiling to full utilize the rack. With the right ceiling height you’ll not only be able to squat but you’ll be able to do overhead presses and possibly pull-ups and muscle ups (if your squat rack has a bar).
That’s All You Need
You don’t need a lot to get into great shape, just the essentials, a good program, and some hard work.
