Garage Gym 

 

Clear the space.

You need room to breath. Whether you need to throw a yard sale or just get organized, a gym requires space. Look into hanging things on the wall or shelving to get things off the floor.

 

Add some airflow.

When you are working out, you sweat. Add some extra cool air to keep you from passing out. This could be a simple fan costing no more than $30.  Or an air condition unit costing a handful but cool air is worth it when you’re trying to break a sweat.

 

Keep it organized.

If you have more than one machine, sketch out a floor plan. Design your workout room so it flows and there is room to move around. When your gym looks nice, maybe you will want to work out more.

 

Flooring.

No one wants to lie on the hard concrete to go their crunches. Invest in a small rug or carpet to place under your machinery.

 

Safety First.

Always remember to keep the air flowing. Whether that is the air condition unit, a fan, or the garage door opened, just make sure not to over heat.
