Really, building a home gym is not a privilege for a few: anyone can create a comfortable and functional gym inside their home, even where it is a very common apartment.

In the world of fitness, on the other hand, in recent times really remarkable progress has been made thanks to the introduction of new tools, new accessories, and also very light and space-saving machinery, perhaps even easily reclosable. By contacting a company specializing in renovation services, the same will certainly be able to design and build a functional gym even within a small room.

The costs of a home gym

Making a fitness area at home certainly has a lower cost than the renovation of a complete apartment, and it could not be otherwise, since in this case we only intervene on a room, or in any case on a small part of the property. In light of this, it is a good practice to ask the company how much it costs to restructure to the mq, in order to immediately have a rough idea about the expense to be incurred.

gymObviously, the official quote provided by the company is a much more precise figure: in a custom projecton the other hand, the technical variants to be considered are numerous, and in the light of them the company will certainly be able to specify in detail the cost required for the desired restructuring.

It is useful to remember that even if you want to work only on a part of the house it is absolutely possible to use the tax deductions for restructuring currently in force: when an estimate is requested, therefore, this aspect must be carefully considered, given that the state incentives are very substantial.

Find out how you can get your home gym in just a few square meters

First of all, as mentioned above, it is not necessary to have large spaces: even in a few square meters you can set up an exercise area complete with everything you need, so even a simple room in an apartment can do well. To organize a home gym it is first of all necessary to provide for the presence of the main tools, the essential ones so that the most common fitness exercises can be performed in this space.

If you have a large space available, you can easily provide various tools, but if the available square footage is small, you shouldn't fear that your gym is not very functional. Absolutely perfect machines for home gyms, also very popular in fitness centers, are the so-called “fitness stations”, also known as “multipurpose stations”.

These tools, despite having a size almost similar to that of a common tool, offer the possibility of carrying out several different exercises in the same position. The multi-purpose stations, in essence, incorporate more tools into a single model, and one can well imagine that great space savings can come from such a choice.

The tools

The multi-purpose stations are designed so that the execution of each exercise is flawless, just as if you were performing the movement using a classic machine in a spacious gym. With these particular tools you can train various muscles on the same station: the lats, the pectorals, the quadriceps, the triceps, just to name a few.

Those who are fitness experts know well that to be well trained it is useful to alternate the use of machines with that of dumbbells and barbells, therefore in a home gym these fitness items should never be missing. To be able to perform multiple different exercises using the barbells, it is a good suggestion to provide a tilting bench inside your home gym: this tool, although very simple and not bulky at all, allows you to perform infinite exercises, such as for example those for the shoulders, for the biceps, for the lats.

A multipurpose station and a reclining bench can in fact constitute a “concentrated” gym in a few square meters, without forgetting that on the market there are several reclining benches that can be closed while not in use, further optimizing the spaces.

Many fitness exercises dedicated to any muscle group can also be performed using only dumbbells and barbells, without having to use a bench, and this makes the range of exercises that can be performed in a home gym even more varied. In light of this, it is useful to provide supports on which to store in an orderly manner all the tools useful for making movement.

If you want to associate aerobic activity with classic exercises, it can be an excellent idea to buy a treadmill: many people have this very useful tool at home, and the best treadmills combine excellent technological levels with a very small footprint. Many treadmills, however, can be closed, so to further reduce their size it is possible to open them only when you want to use them.

Once the point has been made of what are the useful tools for setting up a functional and complete home gym, let's see what are other purely structural aspects that should be considered, starting with the flooring.

The flooring and the furnishings

Regarding the flooring of a home gym, there are no particular suggestions to provide: from an aesthetic point of view it can be an excellent idea to provide parquet or laminate surfaces, in the same way there are various specific flooring in plastic or rubber for spaces dedicated to fitness, economical and easy to apply. Among these, there are more and more choices made up of the so-called "puzzles", that is a series of elements that can make up an entire floor simply by fitting them together, just like the classic puzzles.

In a good gym a mirror should never be missing, indeed it can be said without hesitation that the larger the surfaces covered with mirrors, the more it will be possible to create a "sporty" context. In gyms, mirrors are very useful both because they allow those who train to check the correctness of the movements they are performing, and because they are considered an excellent "motivator", a useful stimulus to concentrate on training.

Parallel to these technical aspects, it should not be overlooked that mirrors are always very attractive from an aesthetic point of view, and in restructuring interventions the design is certainly not a secondary factor. It is an excellent solution to provide one or more TVs in your home gym, and their location should not be the result of chance.

It can be an excellent solution, for example, to place a large screen in front of the treadmill, since aerobic workouts usually last for many minutes and allow the athlete to be able to get slightly distracted without the quality of the training. resents.

Those specified, of course, are only general indications, useful above all to those who are not sure what kind of exercises can be carried out at home: a restructuring project of this type, in fact, can be personalized and pleasing, and decorations can be envisaged and details that make this environment perfectly consistent with your aesthetic and functional preferences.
