How to Set Up a Home Gym

If you can’t get out to the gym, bring the gym home!

1. Find a space.

Whether it’s dedicated space you carve out in a garage or spare room, or a corner of the bedroom or den, you need:

  • Room to move freely

  • Storage for equipment

  • Comfortable, temperature-controlled space to spend time in

2. Purchase your equipment.

You don’t really need big, heavy equipment in a home gym. And if you work out along with online classes, just a few basics will get you going.

  • Yoga mat

  • Dumbbells

  • Resistance bands

  • Full-length mirror (helps you keep your form)

  • Also consider: stability ball, jump rope, foam roller, balance discs

3. Use it.

Your home gym is a waste of space and money if you aren’t working out. Let’s get moving!
