How To Organise Your Home For Better Workouts

Do you find it hard to maintain a healthy weight, yet feel as if there are barriers in the way? Perhaps you work a lot, or have children, and can’t find a way to get moving and fit. Home workouts are one of the best ways to improve your health when you’re short on time and money. Workout DVDs, YouTube pilates tutorials or even just moving to music for 30 minutes can really make a difference when it comes to your personal health and well-being. 

Some people get put off doing home workouts because they feel the spaces in their homes are not suitable to move freely in. However, there are many ways you can make changes to your home so that you can do your home workouts. By making these small changes, you will be able to find it easier to do workouts from home, and make yourself a lot healthier in the process. 


Storage gym

Storage is incredibly important when it comes to space management, and knowing where to store your home workout apparatus is crucial to organising your space well. For example, if you’ve invested in some workout apparatus such as resistance bands or handheld weights, invest in some stylish storage boxes to keep your apparatus in. This will help keep your equipment organised so you know where everything is when you go to do a home workout. Getting storage boxes that match your decor can also keep your home tidy and stylish. If you’re thinking of getting a home treadmill, make sure you get one that folds up so you can hide it away, so that it won’t affect your living spaces. If you’re thinking of dedicating one space in your home to your workouts, getting a storage rack may be more useful than individual boxes. 


Think carefully about your home. Which room has the best and most space to work out in? You will need plenty of space to be able to do your workouts effectively. Make sure you remove things in this space that will inhibit working out, such as slippy rugs and fragile ornaments, as this could be dangerous for you if you’re doing a lot of moving around. Think about getting a special gym mat if you’ve got hardwood floors, this could help to protect not just the floor but you as well!

Home gym


One of the main things that put people off working out at home is that they don’t want their expensive items to be damaged in an accident. If you’ve got any luxury homeware pieces that you need to keep safe, either remove them from your designated workout area or have a box with bubble wrap they could be put in while you work out. You should also think about your own protection here- try not to choose a place which has any hard edges which you could bump into. This could injure you a lot, especially if you’re moving quite quickly. 

Use Colours That Motivate You

Just like in a home office, sometimes people use colours that make them feel tired or bored. This is a big no-no for creating a home gym! It’s harder to get motivated when your TV is a few steps away. Make sure that you’re using colours that motivate and stimulate you so you are prepared for your home workout. Including nice atmospheric decors such as neon lights or posters could have two positive outcomes- it could motivate you a lot, and it also makes your home look fantastic!


Home light gym

When a room is dark, it can make you not want to go in there! This isn’t good if you want to create a home gym that you want to feel good about working out in. Make sure you can get plenty of natural light into your home workout spaces or have other lighting options. This is crucial for making sure you stay motivated and stick to your schedule!

Clean Your Workout Equipment

Gym Cleaning

One of the biggest mistakes people make is not cleaning their home workout equipment, such as boxing gloves or weights. Make sure you’re cleaning these thoroughly and leaving boxing gloves to air dry. When you work hard, you sweat hard. If sweat isn’t cleaned properly from your equipment it could make your equipment smell bad. Keeping on top of this is a great way to make your home gym a lot better.
