3 Key Questions to Ask When Designing a Home Gym
There is a lot to consider when setting up your home gym. But getting the basics right means getting a space you can work in and work on in the future.
To get you started consider 3 fundamental questions.
What are your training goals/style?
Your home gym is a sanctuary, an investment in yourself. Make sure it works for the training you love, not every possible style. If you are a splitting your time between home and a commercial space then you won’t need every piece of gym equipment, but a power rack, dumbbells, barbells and bumpers will give you enough options. We have several home gym packages to get you started.
If you are creating a gym at home to help you train for a marathon then including cardio equipment with free weights makes more sense than a power rack. Our new Primal Cardio equipment is ideal for home and commercial spaces.
What should you spend?
Your health is an investment. We believe in the power of strength training to help every body discover their true potential. Like you’re training there are ways to be efficient. Investing in quality, durable gym equipment that will stand up to every lift, every push every pull is key. Our equipment is built to withstand the rigours of any gym, meaning you aren’t spending again and again to replace kit.
Even with that the dream home gym can seem out of reach but we have a range of finance options that can help you lift now and pay later.
How should I fill the space?
You don’t need to have a room filled wall to wall with machines for a great home gym. Space is paramount. Make your room work for you ensuring that you utilise every bit of space in there effectively. There are many ways you can achieve this such as unique storage solutions to allow you to use only what you need for any session, foldable racks, dual use machines and all-in-one multi gym systems such as our Primal Strength Stealth Monster Rack System. It packs a punch. Designed to cover three machines in one it is perfect for smaller commercial spaces and home gyms.

Don’t forget flooring!
Not a question but an important reminder! One of the most overlooked parts of any home or garage gym is the flooring. Often considered to be the least important and cheapest cost, flooring is thought to be non-essential. Contrary to this, flooring is the foundation of any space. Having the correct gym flooring, spec’d to suit your style of training and space will give longevity of your room as well as your equipment.
