My "home gym"

Sunday, May 13, 2012

I'm fixing up a small three-bedroom house to use as a short-term rental, and have decided to make one of the bedrooms into an exercise room. After reading an article here about what would be good for a home gym, I was delighted to see I already have several of the items. Here's what helps me work up a sweat in my home gym:
*exercise bike with various modes
* two-pound ankle weights
*stretch bands
*five-pound hand weights
*DVD player with Leslie Sansone and Richard Simmons vids

Since the house is a fixer-upper, it'll be a while before it's ready to rent, and I'm kinda enjoying having my own private workout haven in the meantime. Gives a new meaning to "sweat-equity"!

    Don't forget resistance band and a swiss ball but not sure about ankle weights. Read that they are not so good. emoticon emoticon

    I'm jealous!! We have a 3 bedroom house, but with 2 girls and us we don't have much space for a "true" home gym, lol. You're lucky you have the space, keep up the great work. When I finally figure out how to make an exercise space that is permanent in my house, you've given me some great ideas on what to include. Thanks :)
