Garage Conversion: Exercise Room

With the U.S. economy and job market both in states of ruin, people are trying to stretch every dollar they own, more now than ever. Because of this penny-pinching trend, home gyms have become increasingly popular. Why spend $50 a month to be a member of a gym when you can own your own equipment and workout in the privacy of your own home?

And where are these people putting their new home gyms? In their garages.

This article from eHow.com explains how you can turn your dank garage into your own luxury workout space with just a few adjustments to the flooring, climate control and insulation (and gym equipment, of course).

Climate Control

Most garages aren’t climate controlled, making insulation, heating and air conditioning installation a must. After all, you want to be comfortable when you workout, right?


The sturdy flooring in most garages make the room ideal for heavy exercise equipment. But in order to reduce noise and add a little cushion for activities like yoga or pilates, you may think about installing rubber sports matting. These interlocking cushions are easy to install and provide the perfect cost-effective flooring option for any garage-based home gym.


Cheap exercise equipment is one thing you do not want to mess with. So fork out the extra few dollars to get the best equipment you can afford. It is better to have a few high-quality machines than a bunch of cheap machines that will break and wear down. Popular options include compact home gyms, which accommodate multiple exercise types in one apparatus. Other choices include cardio equipment such as treadmills, exercise bikes and rowing machines; strength training equipment such as weight benches and fitness accessories such as stability balls and yoga mats.


Finally, no one likes to exercise in complete silence. Consider installing a music system or television/dvd player to help break up your monotonous workout. It is also nice to have a small refrigerator near by filled with healthy snacks, cold water and sports drinks.

But the final decisions are yours. Tailor your home gym to your specific needs/desires. If you have any questions, contact TLC Garage Works by calling 888-742-5852 or click here today!
