How to Create Your Own Home Gym

Working out in your home gym can provide you with an invigorated sense of motivation and save you a lot of time commuting to and from your local gym. From training whenever you want, to creating a space that is relaxing and inspiring, a Precor home gym is the best way to bring your club experience into your home. After reading the resources we’ve provided in this series, we trust that you see the value of incorporating Precor equipment into your in-home workouts. From stretching and strength equipment to all-in-one fitness options like the Adaptive Motion Trainer® (AMT®), Precor is determined to set you up for success with fitness equipment for your home gym.

Get an Expert Opinion

With any big purchase, including fitness equipment, you’ve got to do your research. Where better to start that research than online? As you’ve no doubt found, there are hundreds of thousands of websites telling you which equipment is best for you. If you’re overwhelmed with the sheer number of online reviews, how-to videos, infomercials, specifications tables, and more, you’re not alone.

Whether you’ve reached your maximum capacity for online research or you are ready to try out your top contenders, it’s time to call on an expert and more importantly, try out the equipment for yourself. We can’t stress enough how important it is to try out the equipment before purchasing it. Your local Precor Authorized Dealer is a good place to start. 

Fitness is more than a career for the individuals you’ll meet in the store; it is a way of life. They are fitness enthusiasts who are experts in their field with many having 10, 15, or 20+ years of experience in the industry. They are trained to answer your fitness questions and help you feel comfortable on the equipment prior to your purchase.

Additionally, these stores carry multiple equipment brands in addition to Precor, so you’ll be able to try out a number of brands in one stop. Most fitness specialty stores also offer service for fitness equipment. Our experts will be able to give you the lowdown on the products they get the most service calls for and which ones keep going strong year after year.

If you’re unsure which equipment is best for your in-home needs, our experts will offer you expertise beyond what you’ll find online. Plus, you’ll be encouraged to try out the equipment in the store to make sure it’s the perfect fit to help you reach your own specific fitness goals.

Set Yourself Up for Financial Success

Whether you’re planning on purchasing one piece of equipment to get started or are ready to outfit your space with several pieces, the cost of your investment is sure to be top of mind.

To help you keep your costs manageable, Precor offers financing options for customers both in store and online. You’ll be able to outfit your home gym with the equipment you need, while keeping your monthly costs to a minimum, possibly less than your current gym membership.

Representatives in-store or online can help you figure out the best possible financing solution (often with an interest-free option) to fit your budget.

Be Inspired By Your Space

Our team of professionals can help set you up for success by offering expert advice on selecting the right equipment and providing financing. It is also important that you also set yourself up for success within your home fitness space. Regardless of whether your room is large or small, you can still build an in-home gym that is inspiring, motivating, and fully functional for your needs.

  • A Room with a View: If your space is equipped with a window, you’ll most likely feel more inspired than if you feel you’re working out in a fully closed room. However, if you don’t have the luxury of a window, installing a mirrored wall can help make exercising exciting while also ensuring you have proper form during your workout.
  • Multi-Functional Spaces: Even if you’re tight on space, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a home gym. Bonus rooms, sun rooms, and even hallways can function as fitness areas. Your home office is a great place to include fitness equipment. What if you could take a conference call while you take a walk on your treadmill, pedal on an elliptical, or spin on a bike?
  • Motivation Equipment: While yes, the in-home gym is for fitness equipment, it is important to remember that you may want some form of entertainment while you’re getting your sweat on. Do you like reading on your tablet or watching your favorite show? Do you get motivated with cable news or sports? Are top 40 hits more your jam or music videos? Whether it’s an epic sound system or an entertainment system, or fitness equipment that has built in entertainment options into the console to keep you moving, make sure your space will help motivate you towards your fitness goals.

Precor wants to set you up for success, regardless of where you are on your fitness journey. Utilizing our resources online and optimizing the expertise of Precor Authorized Dealers to outfit you with an in-home gym that fits your needs, we believe you’ll be on the road to success.
