Having a home gym can be great for convenience, but it isn’t for everyone. Some people draw genuine motivation from the group environment of the social gym.

People who want their own space to get bigger, better and stronger, people who can’t stand fancy commercial gyms which ban chalk, good music and any type of training that might be considered useful. Ultimately, this is for people who love training, whether it’s for bodybuilding, power lifting or sport.

If you sound like me, you might be the perfect candidate for your own home gym. If you have the dedication, a small investment of cash and space can help you hit your goals. Divert dollars from your extra vehicle and invest in something you’ll use every day. Invest in your own gym.

Building a home gym doesn’t have to break the bank. With a few essential items and some creativity, you can get all of the same benefits of hitting your favorite gym (or workout class) at home. “When it comes to building a home gym, the most important thing you need to do is be honest with yourself,” said Thomas Boatswain, personal trainer. “Do a ‘needs analysis’ for yourself. Be realistic about your goals and what’s necessary. This will help get you started on what steps need to be taken first.”
