If you have found yourself enjoying your time at home during the initial lockdown and have decided to cancel your gym membership, you might be looking at ways in which you can still get your exercise induced adrenaline rush and stay fit and healthy.

Setting up a home gym in your garage is one of the best ways to achieve this and it doesn’t have to be expensive. One of the first things that you should do is ensure that you have a working garage door so that you can easily access the space, the flooring might also need to be looked at. If your garage door needs fixing a Garage door installation Dunstable company can help you.  Some people like to have some vinyl put down or perhaps some carefully chosen rugs. If you plan on using your garage gym all year round you might want to have some plasterboard installed on the walls to make it warmer in the cold months.

Once you have the space looking how you like you can then start thinking about the sort of equipment that you would like to put in your home gym. You don’t need to purchase this all at once. Simply start with the equipment pieces that you enjoyed the most at the gym.

For example you may want to get yourself a small set of weights and perhaps an exercise bike if you were a fan of spin classes. You can then think about adding in a treadmill or crosstrainer and perhaps a selection of kettlebells.

To truly give yourself that gym feel you might want to consider having a stereo system put in place so you can exercise to your favourite tunes whenever you want.
