Feeling pumped? Below are 7 home gym ideas to help achieve your fitness goals.

1. A Climber’s Dream

Interior Firm: The Orange Cube

There’s no time like the present to start arms training, and a great way to do that is through rock climbing/ bouldering! However, instead of shelling out $25 or so every time for a climbing session, simply install a rock wall and some hangboards within your home. The wall is suitable for both adults and children, plus you’re free to change up the holds whenever you wish – a climber’s dream

2. (Pole) Dance Like Nobody’s Watching

Interior Firm: Fifth Avenue Interior

Pole dancing is great whole body workout that can be easily brought into your home. The set-up for this sport is relatively minimal, requiring just mirrors, non-slip flooring and of course, a pole. Include a sound system and you’ll have yourself a pole-dancing studio!

3. Do You Lift?

Interior Firm: Zenith Arc

Despite the bulky machines and equipment, a conventional gym can be replicated in your home with a little space-planning. Weight-lifting enthusiasts can consider dedicating a spare room to a home gym with reflective surfaces to visually enlarge the room.

4. A Lean and Mean Machine

Interior Firm: Noble Interior Design

Can’t spare a room for your home gym? Fret not. Consider having an exercise corner in the living room with a cable machine, and by using a gym mat to demarcate your workout space. For additional privacy, opt for a built-in partition at the entryway.

5. A Play Space

Interior Firm: Third Avenue Studio

Encourage the little ones to get active by converting the walkways and/or corridors into play spaces! Include fun, interactive features such as a climbing net and ropes – but also be sure to cover the area with some mats to cushion the landings.

6. A Zen Zone

Interior Firm: Meter Square

Perfect for yoga, meditation, and reading, convert your spare bedroom into a cosy nook for some quiet ‘me time’. For added functionality, opt for non-slip tiles to convert a space for yoga, and line the perimeters of the room with built-in storage that can double-up as a settee!

7. A Room That Packs A Punch

Interior Firm: Third Avenue Studio

Have an unused corner or some space to spare? Maximise it by hanging a punching bag or if you’re not a boxer, a pull-up bar. Not only does this simple set-up help you get your daily reps in, it also gives you the flexibility to switch up the room layout if needed.
