Domestic Gyms
If you are converting a spare room, basement, garage or summer house into a gym then feel free to try out a few scenarios with different equipment and layouts using our FREE gym planner design tool (below). We can help you decide what equipment to specify accoridng to your fitness goals. For example, you can choose a from a range of different equipment for a cardio routine (treadmill, rowers, cross trainer, bikes, spin bikes) and compliment this with a multi-gym for strength training, finisging off with a stretching area to warm up/warm down.
If space or budget are limiting factors then there are plenty of ways to overcome this by specifying different types of equipment to combine floor exercises into your fitnesss routine such as swiss balls, kettlebells, and resistance bands...all of which can be put away in a cupboard after use and are relatively inexpensive to purchase. and we will do our best to help!
