What does modern man want and need? We know that systematic sports activities are already a guarantee of health, a good figure and great health. More and more often we see new advertising signs that dozens of new fitness centers and other health establishments are opening, but often we, people who work and live at a crazy pace, do not have enough time to regularly visit such establishments.
Of course, practicing from time to time is better than nothing at all, but for visible results you need regularity in your lessons.
Many may have noticed that rather unusual, but effective innovations in Western countries have a beneficial effect on people's lives. One of them is gym equipment at home.
But even a gym in a private house needs to be properly equipped, because it is known that it will be much more difficult to tune in to classes at home than in the gym, because there are so many temptations - to go to the sofa to lie down and watch TV, and houses are not so much fun anymore.
And as you know, if a person does not get pleasure from such physical exertion, then for him they are nothing more than a duty. As you can imagine, in such a situation it is difficult to tune in to systematic sports.
That is why you need to carefully consider the equipment of the gym in the house.
What should be taken into account?
Everyone has different possibilities for allocating a separate living space for a gym at home, so everyone will have different nuances.
Ideally, it would be good to set aside a separate room for the gym with an area of at least 8-10 m 2 . The bigger, the better.
The optimal place for a gym in a private house will be veranda . It is in this place that it is easy to breathe, excellent ventilation (which is important for the gym).
Another good place would be an attic with beams under the ceiling (it will make it possible to hang sports equipment). Large attic windows will make it possible to ventilate the room well.
But you can equip a gym at home in another room, the main thing is to have windows .
Why is this important? Firstly, during physical exertion, a person must breathe fresh air, and secondly, without windows in a room, a person, as a rule, experiences discomfort, which in no way contributes to the growth of a keen interest in sports.
Walls in a home gym must have a number of different properties. The most important is vapor permeability. The point is that even if the gym is designed for a small number of people, a certain amount of moisture will still accumulate in it.If the walls in the room are sealed (finished with tiles or plastic panels), then condensation will form on them, which is not very good for playing sports in this room. The best solution would be plaster or ordinary paper wallpaper.
Or you can decorate the walls in the gym at home with natural panels (for example, cork).
Another good option could be a cork floor, but it will be more expensive, weeks the above options.
Home gym interior color
Many psychologists and medical professionals concluded that the most optimal colors for gym design are all light shades of blue, green, gray, and cream.
One of these colors should be chosen as a key color for decorating walls, floors and more.
You can choose the colors for your machines, but this will depend in part on the style of the room.
If you choose black and steel shades of furniture and fitness equipment, then this will suit the hi-tech style.
If your hall is going to be retro or avant-garde then feel free to choose bright, flashy colors. It is noted that they have a stimulating effect.
Home Gym Lighting
It is desirable that the lighting is overhead and the lamps are not colored.
Lamps with white light will be the best option, and the place where the person will study, looking at himself in the mirror, should be more illuminated.
Of course, everyone, even a mini gym, should have a mirror.
If there is no opportunity to create one exclusively mirrored wall, then you can replace the present mirror on polystyrene mirror plates.
Your mirror should be positioned so that the person can see himself while doing the exercises, preferably at full height.
The window, which is an integral part in every gym, should be on the side of the practitioner.
By the way, if you think that a mirror is needed only for admiring yourself, then this is not so. It helps to control the correctness of the performance of certain exercises.
Moreover, observing himself in the mirror, a person will be motivated to eliminate all those flaws that he will see in full growth.
In general, this is what will be your motivator and coach for life! True, if a person has low self-esteem, then this can have the opposite effect.
As one sociological survey has shown, people who are overweight and have low self-esteem feel discomfort at the sight of themselves and their shortcomings and a desire to stop these activities as soon as possible. So a gym in the house will not be superfluous.
It is also necessary to put a hanger for your clothes and towels and also at least one highchair with a back - is an important element for some exercises, and it will never hurt to take a break.
It is also desirable to have a small water table . A home gym bar would be ideal.
If your home gym has free space, you can put on a leather sofa and hang shelves. Such shelves will be very appropriate if a person does a lot of sports and loves to win at various competitions.
Many of the trainees, (especially women), like to work with video instructors - that is, special video lessons on gymnastics, aerobics, and dancing.
Such classes should be conducted where TV and DVD are available. If you prefer such video lessons, we recommend buying a small plasma TV with a built-in player - so you can practice your favorite video lessons without unnecessary distractions!
Home Gym Decor
This often includes various posters of a motivating nature. For girls, this can be images of their standards of beauty (models and athletes), for men - world famous bodybuilders. The main thing is to match the style of the room.
You can also hang an electronic board showing the time, because controlling the duration of classes is also very important.
A good option would be various motivating inscriptions, looking at which you will have strength to continue to practice. You can also hang darts.
First of all, you need to make a choice in favor of which or exercise equipment for your home gym.
There must be at least one cardio trainer , that is, an exercise bike or treadmill. All others are selected solely for your needs and goals that you want to achieve.
So, if a girl just wants to lose weight, then one cardio trainer, a pair of dumbbells and rope is enough for her.
A man looking to build muscle will need strength machines (or multifunction machines that will save you 2 ).
However, you can do without it, but just buy a barbell and a few pancakes , as well as dumbbells. Everything will depend on your preferences, goals and finances.
Anyway, it would be nice to buy at least one checkmate .
If the size of the hall allows, then you can install tennis or even billiard table , and place basketball basket on the wall.
True, in such a gym, you will have to separate everything into zones, but the bar counter will help with this, and which we said earlier.
A small sports corner in the living room or bedroom can be distinguished, if the size allows.
For a mini gym, you can combine a room and a loggia. Be that as it may, try to make the sports corner closer to the windows.
It is better to separate the sports area somehow - by painting the walls in a different color, or even finishing with a different material.
Use the same accessories as in a full-fledged gym - watches, posters, a mirror. The TV can be placed so that it is convenient to watch it both from the sports area and from the recreation area.
For this occasion, you can spend money on folding trainers , which will not take up much space, and the barbell or dumbbell can be removed after training for sofa or bed.
In general, the requirements are the same, but you will have to save a lot of space.
It will be a little more difficult, but at the same time more interesting.
So go for it! We wish you the best in your sporting success!
