What to Consider when Setting Up a Home Gym

by Ram Collins

How hard can it be, I hear you ask. Setting up a home gym Doesn't need to be hard, but you do need to be smart about it. Don't put down what your I.Q can do for you.

The most effective equipment for the best possible price may seem straight forward enough, but here a few things to consider:

- Weight - Freestanding units are extremely heavy. Be sure to check your floor type can bear the extra weight. If need some repairs, tend them first

- Height - Check for clearance issues to make sure that your pulley systems fit inside your room. You do not want to destroy your ceiling or your equipment if you did not do this properly.

- Width - Certain movements require a lot of space, thus check if these movements can fit the width of your available space. The wall will greet you always if you do not do this as you do your stretching.

- Flooring - a cement slab in a garage is fine. But make sure if you drop a weight it isn't going to go through your apartment or upstairs floor and kill Bob below watching TV from the comfort of his armchair.

- Safety - Home gyms are fun for adults, do be sure children cannot access the room, or you can fold and put equipment away. In fact anyone who gets curious can easily injure themselves if they haven't used the equipment before.

- Correct assembly - know that the home gym will not turn up at your door ready to go. Normally assembly will be required and getting this wrong could not only void warranty, but it puts the user at risk.

Always follow safety rules so that you not meet unexpected surprises.
