In this home gym, we'll have a bench press, machines(think an elliptical or treadmill), and you might bring in some equipment that caters to the way you love to workout. If you're a gymnast, consider investing in commercial gym flooring that will give you some bounce to tumble on. You'll also have your exercise mats and other weights to incorporate into your workout. Here, you've got it all, tailor-made for you.
Another factor to consider is online workout programs, which can be found for free on YouTube or at a wide range of costs with programs like DownDog — which, despite its name, offers HIIT, Pilates, and other workouts besides Yoga-Nike Training Club and StrongHer.
These programs can be customized to suit your interests, goals, and even your gender (e.g., StrongHer is designed just for women). Online workout programs can be a valuable tool when building a workout plan at home and deciding what you want to bring into your home gym.
Remember that you don't have to invest in a lot of equipment, or any at all, to build a successful home gym. You definitely can and eventually may. Start out slow when building a home gym and getting into a workout routine at home.
You can begin by walking around your neighborhood every day and doing bodyweight exercises. Bodyweight exercises use the weight of your body to train different muscle groups and are a fantastic way to get a summer body at home without investing too much.
