Getting Good Value Out of a Home Gym Renovation

Setting up your own home gym is not only convenient, but you can also save a lot of money by training at home. However, it’s important to make sure your home gym project is cost-effective; especially as Bloomberg notes, the costs of building and renovating have never been higher. Without finding good value for money you could end up wasting a lot of cash.

Of course, when setting up your home gym you will need to buy equipment specific to your training needs, and while quality is important, it doesn’t have to be shiny and new. Taking time to look for good deals is a good principle, but the first and most important step is establishing your budget.

Your Budget

Your home gym is a renovation project and so setting a budget is key to ensuring that you spend within your means –overspending on renovation is all too easy, as the WaPo highlights. Before you begin the process it’s important to have a plan in place and to know what your goals are and what you want to get out of your renovation. This could also help you figure out how you will finance the renovation, primarily whether your savings will suffice or whether you require a line of credit.

The Equipment You Need

Think about your current workout routine and what equipment you use on regular basis. This will help you to decide what equipment you will need at first. You can always build on your collection later down the line, but it’s important to stick to the basics at first, as being too ambitious can lead to you unnecessarily spending money on equipment you won’t use.

Shop Around Before Buying

You don’t need to buy brand new equipment in order for it to be of good quality. Most gym equipment is hardy stuff, so you can save a few dollars by buying it second-hand and still get amazing results. Bikes and treadmills are the obvious exceptions as they have lots of moving parts, so make sure you do your research before you buy.

Setting up your home gym is an exciting time. It’s even more rewarding when you have the time and budget to afford a proper renovation. However, it’s important to be frugal and keep your eyes on what’s required to make your home gym work for you. Start small and expand later.
