The pandemic has forever relocated the locales of fitness areas and gyms for the majority of the world.  The new global fitness hub for the majority of the exercising individuals of the world shall now be permanently located within the safety of your home, and is now officially named “the home gym.”    No worries fitness freaks — your home gym allows you to personalize your workout and/or fitness areas with equipment and surroundings chosen by you, and purposely included in your home gym, to enable you, ‘the exerciser’, to achieve your fitness and health goals.

As to what constitutes an awesome home gym depends upon who you ask … because we all know that even the greatest gym or fitness area means zilch and does nothing to improve a persons health and wellbeing if it is not used!

Home fitness gyms can vary dramatically in size, equipment, and function. Nonetheless, the universal definition for a home gym is simply a designated home space for working out. To assist individuals in creating their dream home gym area, I have classified the 3 types of home fitness gyms as follows:

  1. Floor-Based Home Fitness Gym

Do you do yoga, aerobics, or workouts where your body-weight is the sole equipment? Is the space dedicated to it? If you answer yes to both questions, you have a floor-based home fitness gym in your home.

  1. Fitness Machine Home Gym

A fitness machine room is a space dedicated to your treadmill, elliptical, stationary bike, or similar type of cardio equipment. In my view, you do not need multiple machines to qualify as a fitness machine gym — only your preferred fitness machine!

  1. Resistance Training Gym

This is what most people picture when they think of a gym in their home.

These days there are many types of weight training gyms you can create in your house. I further broke them down into 3 categories:

  • Lever style weight training. Lever style weight training equipment use swiveling arms which you push, pull, lift, and squat as your workout movements. There are not pulleys or cables – just swiveling arms on which weight plates are placed.
  • Machine-style weight lifting equipment. Machine style lifting equipment uses pulleys and a cables that lift weight stacks when you do your movement. Most machine-style weight lifting equipment targets a specific muscle group, as does most lever-arm weight lifting equipment.
  • Free weight home gyms. Free weight gyms are a bench, dumbbells, and barbells. Maybe a squat rack and bench press. It is basic, but it gets the job done.

Whatever your workout space contains in your house, if you designate it as a place to lift weights, use an elliptical trainer, or do aerobics, you have a gym in your house.
