If space is limited, the fitness equipment can be set up in the bedroom at home. This way you don’t have a separate room for training, but it can be enough to keep track of your training. Here are a few things to reflect when setting up a gym in your bedroom.
Easy access to your fitness equipment makes training easier.
If you have a flat screen TV in your bedroom, it can distract you from your cardio workout. Be sure to align the cardio machine so that you have a clear view of the television.
A distance from the common areas gives you privacy while training and keeps equipment out of sight when you have guests.
A cardio machine should be placed near an electrical outlet (if necessary). Consider more compact options like folding treadmills, stationary bikes, rowing machines, or compact ellipticals that typically require a small footprint.

Also plan accessories such as exercise balls, fitness bands or dumbbells. They offer many additional training options, take up little storage space and can be easily stowed away invisibly in the closet or under the bed.
If you have a slight extra space, consider adding a functional rack to your build for more training options and built-in storage. FURTHER CONSIDERATIONS
If noise is an subject for you, consider cardio machines like elliptical machines, which are nearly silent.
Avoid hanging clothes on your cardio equipment. If you have to clear the treadmill first, it’s a lot easier to push yourself before a workout!
Basement gyms range from a few machines lined up next to a TV to entire rooms dedicated to fitness training. Cellars are great for strength training because of the stability of the space. With a basement gym, you frequently have the rough sturdiness needed for a serious workout, but in a space that’s a little more comfortable and temperature-controlled than, say, a garage.
Basements lend themselves to a separate exercise room that allows for manifold equipment options and greater fitness equipment.
This part of the household is generally cooler than the upper floors, which is an advantage during strenuous workouts.
Basements often have a concrete foundation, which means they can support a lot of weight.
One or two cardio machines to take home. Consider a treadmill, a rowing machine, or a bicycle.
Strength training equipment such as a multi-station, weight bench, kettlebells, dumbbells and barbells.
Other accessories such as exercise balls, a yoga mat and a foam roller.
Additional flooring is ideal for a basement home gym equipped with high-performance weight-training equipment. Rubber carpeting can be purchased online or at most hardware stores. The square, interlocking panels with the standard dimensions 50 x 50 cm² are of different thicknesses and easy to lay.
The garage is a great place for forte, functional, and bodyweight exercise. A home gym that allows you to do tough workouts and lift weights without damaging your home. A garage can be big enough to house an impressive home gym. And with music, light and all imaginable design elements you can create a motivating environment.
