159 Mediterranean Gym Design Photos

Whether it's a small exercise nook in a home office or an entire basement stocked with exercise machines, homeowners are starting to make workout spaces a priority. Although it's nice to have your own mediterranean large gym, engaging in home fitness doesn't always mean expensive workout equipment; sometimes an exercise mat, music player and space at the foot of the bed will do the trick. Depending on your budget and interests, you can have a yoga studio, meditation space, pump room, basketball court or dance studio. All you need is some creativity, a little bit of space and get-fit goals. More

As you start prepping your mediterranean workout space, decide what you enjoy doing and therefore will actually use. Try to create a space that you will frequently enjoy, otherwise it's not worth the investment. For those where space is an issue, develop a dual-use space that can serve more than one purpose. Once you determine what kind of room to create, think about what equipment to stock it with. If it's a yoga studio, it could be as simple as a mat, while other spaces could need the works, including an elliptical, treadmill and pricey sound system.

What kind of home gym should I have?


Believe it or not, an exercise room is much more complex than just a room with gym equipment. There are a wide variety of options, depending on your personal preferences, and if planned right, your space can incorporate many different fitness regimens. To make the whole family happy, take an empty room, install a wood floor and mirrored wall, and add an exercise machine, stereo system and TV. This utilitarian space can now be used for aerobics, yoga, pilates, kickboxing, dancing and cardio — a wide variety of exercises for a wide variety of people. If there's a specific workout you enjoy, you can also create a specialty room, including a yoga studio, meditation space, pump room, basketball court or dance studio.

How do I create a double-duty home gym?


If you don't have any square footage to waste, turn your workout spot into a dual-purpose room by mixing it with another space. Gym and home office combos are very popular, or combine it with a playroom, guest bedroom or garage. A stationary bike, treadmill or yoga mat easily blends in, so in reality, you can work out anywhere, but think about what space is most practical and functional. For example, placing equipment in a bedroom might be a challenge if your sleep/workout times clash, while a very well insulated garage might be way too hot in the summer.

What kind of equipment do I need in my home gym?


Once again, your equipment is dictated by what you enjoy doing most. Yoga mats, freestanding weights and punching bags are always solid purchases, or you can splurge by investing in larger, more expensive equipment, like an elliptical, treadmill or multi-functional home gym system. Don't forget about all the little extras: Sound systems and wall-mounted TVs can help get you in the zone, while wet bars help keep water and energy drinks on hand.
