Just as the kitchen is for cooking and the bathroom is for bathing, a home work out area should be just for working out. Maybe it’s in the basement, the garage or a spare tiny passage in your home. The ideal space would have a door so you can work out without any distractions. If you don’t have a spare room, select a space within a room that offers some privacy and is dedicated as your “work out zone.” For the purpose you can confined that space with glass walls and create your very own workout space.
2 -Select the Right Equipment for your Home Gym

Shop for equipment those are easy to install and has built in wheels, folding frames and other easy to move, transportable features. When planning your work out area, make sure everything you need is handy so the gym is ready when you are. This includes things like yoga essentials, workout balls, weights, music center, gym mirror, television, few dvd’s and any other items you prefer to use for your workout.
3- Install Workout Room Flooring and Gym Mirror
Depending on the area you have, you may want to install special flooring with huge gym mirror. Rubber or foam tiles that interlock are available on the market. That special gym mirror comes in custom size option. makes it achieving perfect posture exercises, yoga and other workouts. Work out flooring also improves the room’s acoustics. This is great for turning up the music during cardio or tuning out distracting noise during yoga and meditation. If flooring is not an option for your space, purchase larger and thicker mats that can be used during workouts and then rolled up and stored afterwards.
4- Create a Well-lit Workout Area
