Has COVID-19 put an end to the training at your favorite gym? If so, now’s the time to invest in your own home gym.

Economic Uncertainty

COVID-19 is more than a health issue. It comes with economic volatility and uncertainty as well. So is this really the time to spend money on a home gym? If your only intent is to run out and purchase brand new weights, a treadmill, elliptical and stationary bike…then probably not. Like cars, the moment you leave the vendor’s parking lot, your investment takes a serious nose dive.

To make your home gym a smart investment, you need to approach this as a home improvement project.

Think Longer Term

Identify a space in your home that needs an upgrade. A space, once refurbished, that will increase your livable square footage and your home’s resale value. The space can be used as your home gym now, but in the future, may be used as another retreat…a man-cave, she-shed, entertainment room or art studio. A place to be alone, hang with friends, watch sports on the big screen or indulge in favorite hobbies.

If you think longer-term, it’s a great idea. Home improvement projects are inevitable. But with each project, you need to ensure you’re increasing your home’s resale value. As a rule-of-thumb, home improvement projects cost about 20 to 25 cents on the dollar. The other 75 to 80 cents go directly back into the home through increased value.

So building a home gym should be less about the gym and more about increasing the value of your home. The gym is merely icing on the cake.

What Area Should I Transform?

We are always told to focus on kitchens and bathrooms. But the one space that people often neglect is the garage. If I said that you could increase your home’s livable space by a minimum 200 square feet for less than a few thousand dollars, would you do it? Most would say yes.

Think about it. Ugly and dusty garages with stained and cracked floors are unlivable spaces. (The dust actually originates from the concrete floor itself as it degrades over time). But what if you could transform the space into a healthy and inviting home gym (or any sanctuary you choose) and increase your home’s equity at the same time?

You can, but you need to start from the bottom up.

Epoxy Flooring – Start from the Bottom Up

Installation of garage flooring is the first step in turning your garage into a proper home gym. By installing an epoxy floor, you’ll minimize dust, repair cracks, conceal stains, and provide the durability needed to withstand the wear-and-tear of gym equipment. And epoxy flooring can be aesthetically stunning!

Once you’ve selected your style and color, installation of the epoxy flooring will only take a few days. Once complete, you may want to add some inexpensive drywall, paint, lighting, heating…and of course, the gym equipment. Equipment can be purchased new or second-hand depending on your budget.

For larger budgets, you may consider adding garage cabinets and overhead garage storage to ensure your space stays organized.

The Wrap

Whatever your budget, transforming your garage into a comfortable and inviting home gym increases your home’s livable space and its equity too! But remember, it’s the epoxy flooring that sets the stage by providing a true extension of the home. So stop paying a commercial gym for facilities you can’t use. Your home gym awaits.
