Inspiration for Your Next GYM: How to Choose the Design

The gym you choose to work out in can be an important factor for your workout. Whether it’s a small, local facility or one of the big chains, there are many factors that go into choosing the right gym for you and your fitness needs. 

If you are looking for the best possible gym experience, then it is important to consider every aspect of your design. The color scheme and lighting will influence how you feel in the space and what type of workout you are able to produce. Whether or not you want a mirrored wall is also an important decision, so take some time this week to think about all the factors that make your perfect workout space!

Gym design has a lot of factors to consider, and if you have been struggling with what gym layout will be best for your needs, this blog post is here to help. There are three main types of gym designs: Functional, aesthetic appeal, or both. Which type do you want to choose? 

Functional gyms emphasize function over form; they have straight lines and don’t offer much in the way of visual stimulation.  Aesthetic gyms focus almost solely on aesthetics- think big windows, lots of color combinations and plenty of natural light.

Every morning, as soon as I wake up, I start my day with a workout. It’s such an integral part of my life that it feels weird to not work out first thing in the morning. Plus, when you exercise first thing in the morning, it gives your metabolism a boost for the rest of the day!  So what are some fitness blog ideas? Well one idea is to share workouts that people can do at home without any equipment. Another great idea would be to help people find healthy recipes and cookbooks.  If you have any other ideas or want more information about blogging on this topic let me know!

What are your goals for the gym space in your home

Ideally, your home gym is a space that you can work out in and also store workout equipment. It’s essential to have a space set aside for the things you use most often like weights, cardio machines, punching bags etc. For many people this can be their garage or basement but for some it may be difficult to find an unused area of their property. If you live in an apartment then the best option might be to rent a storage unit nearby and bring everything there before starting your workout so that when it’s time to clean up at the end of the day all you need to do is put everything back where it belongs.  

How much time will you be spending at home on a regular basis

The average American spends around 90% of their time indoors. Some may find this statistic to be alarming, but others are finding ways to enjoy what is at their very doorstep.  With so much information available about the benefits of home ownership and living in a connected environment, it’s no wonder that people are choosing to live within walking distance of work, schools, grocery stores and restaurants. Whether you want more space for your family or just want the ability to walk outside without having to put on pants (true story), there are plenty of reasons why home ownership might be worth considering over renting. 

Do you want to have one big open space or separate areas for different activities

In the workplace, you have one of two choices when it comes to a floor plan: having one big open space or separate areas for different activities. There is no right answer to this question because each option has its own advantages and disadvantages.

One advantage of an open floor plan is that there are fewer barriers between employees which allows them to work more closely together and communicate better, while at the same time reducing noise distraction from other people’s conversations. A disadvantage with this type of layout would be that some people may not like being in close proximity to others all day long without any privacy whatsoever.
