I go through phases with working out. Sometimes Iâ€™m all about the hardcore, military style workouts that leave me shaking and sometimes Iâ€™m all peace, love, and yoga. However, Iâ€™ve found that if I donâ€™t have access to a gym or feel like being around the Hollywood douchebags that go to them, having a home gym, keeps me motivated and on track. No matter the size of your home, there are items you can invest in that will help you transform your body.
When I moved back to Los Angeles this past July, I had a really hard time finding a building that would take my dog. Heâ€™s about 80lbs. When I found a building that didnâ€™t have a weight limit for dogs, they didnâ€™t have a one bedroom available the week I had to moveâ€¦ so a studio became home. Itâ€™s actually quite large, but Iâ€™m on the 2nd floor, so Iâ€™m very mindful of noise. There is not popping in Insanity and jumping up and down for an hour. A great perk of the community is an AMAZING gym, but I still like having my own equipment for home workouts.
So, I thought it would be fun to write a blog about creating a home gym for every living situation. Whether youâ€™re in a studio apartment or a mansion, you can bring the gym to youâ€¦ that means: NO MORE EXCUSES.
So, you may not have room for machines, but hat doesnâ€™t mean you canâ€™t tone and sculpt your body. I love these things because I can put on a movie, park in front of the TV and get a great workout!
If you have more space, try adding these larger items into your home gym. Great equipment and reasonably pricedâ€¦ especially that spin bike! They can cost and arm and a leg sometimeâ€¦

Thinking about your space? Maybe you have a spare bedroom that you donâ€™t useâ€¦ I say, put a gym in there! Make it YOUR workout space. Design it so youâ€™ll use it. What about a garage? My dad actually started building a small gym in his and itâ€™s kind of amazing, so thatâ€™s another space that you can redo into a home gym. Infuse your life with health and fitness. Make it your own. Make it fun. And never step inside a crowded gym again.
