My workout room is complete!!!

Saturday, March 23, 2013

My workout room has finally been finished!!! I had a "workout" area in my basement for years, but it wasn't finished. I won a gym membership at a benefit and joined the gym shortly after. I stopped using the "workout" area in our basement. The gym changed ownership several times and I was no longer happy there. My husband and my sons have expressed interst in us getting a treadmill and doing some weights as well. I sold our elliptical in January and bought a treadmill. My wonderful husband decided I needed a nice area to workout in... so he decided he'd make me a workout room. Here it is...

I know... I know... you are thinking.... emoticon "Oh my gosh!!! It's Orange!!!" Well.. after a lot of research... we found that it was suggested that you paint a workout area a bright vibrant color like yellow, orange, or red, because it is uplifting and energizing. Well... let me tell you... it is TRUE!!! emoticon

My husband came up with the idea of making a bench so we had a place to sit down to take a break, or put on shoes, or whatever. I came up with the idea of making it versatile... and using it as storage underneath. I love it!!!!

And of course you have to have motivation!!

And then he came up with the idea of making me a nice cabinet to put a tv on and to use as storage. As we went along, we came up with the idea of adding a little refirgerator to fill with water!

And more motivation!!

and more equipment...

and the workout area where I can do my floor excercises, and dvds...

And one of my favorite tools... my dry erase board to keep track of my workouts

I really love the room and told my husband, if he can't find me... he knows where to look!!! I love that he took so much time to make such a wonderful room for me!!! I told them that they are more than welcome to join me anytime they like... but I think that they are a little scared seeing how red and sweaty I was this week when I came out of that room!! LOL!! Let's just say... I Brought it like the sign said!!!

Now... to get over this cold so I can get back to my workouts in my new workout room!!!!!

    WOW! This puts my workout room to shame. I LOVE IT! Now I'm going to get after Dean to do something like this in our basement. Your hubby did an amazing job with it and building your the bench and cabinet. It looks so so good and I love all the quotes and posters you've got there.
