Over the years I have slowly accumulated different types of equipment to be used for working out at home. (You can see my original home gym wish list here!) I didn’t really think of this space where I work out and store these things as a “home gym” until we got an exercise bike a few months ago. Now it seems to be fairly well-rounded and I think I could get away with doing all of my workouts here if I had to. Of course, I still run outside, but I no longer feel like I am missing anything by not having a gym membership.
Today, I thought it would be fun to share what I have in my home gym! When possible, I’ve included links to the products if I could still find them. (Some of these are affiliate links.) I’m not going to go into detail about how I like each of these products because that would make this too long, but feel free to leave a comment or E-mail me if you have any specific questions!
Here is the area of our basement where I work out and keep all my exercise stuff. The space is a little odd but I make it work. The door behind the TRX is a guest bedroom and then there is a bathroom to the left (behind where the bike is) and a closet on the right.
Weights and Storage
Bosu and Stability Ball:
Weights (I got a weight rack last year and we have 3 lb, 5 lb, 10 lb, 15 lb, and 20 lb hand weights), a pull-up bar, a heavy bar and plates (these were Rob’s from before we lived together) and kettlebells.
In the drawers are lots of exercise bands, a coregeous ball, a pure barre ball, and foam rollers. (I keep another foam roller, the stick, supernova, and my R8 roller upstairs in the family room because I use them in the evenings)
As you may already know we got a spin bike a few months ago.
It faces the TV but we don’t have a cable connection over here so I usually just put my iPad on the handlebars. Eventually I want to get something to mount my iPad on there.
Exercise Bands and Supplemental Workout Equipment
In this other corner I use the TV stand to store lots of random stuff. Don’t even ask what is in the red bag on the bottom. That is pretty much where I stick anything that I don’t use regularly!
Next to the TV stand is a mirror, a yoga block, and a balance pad.
Finally, in this back corner is my TRX.
I keep my running shoes in this closet to the right but I chose not to take a picture because it’s kind of a disaster in there!
