Making time in our hectic schedules to get to the gym can be a challenge. But by creating your own home gym, you’ll never have to feel guilty for missing a training session again. Squeezing gym equipment into your home can leave you short on space. So why not convert your loft into a designated gym space? Here at Pinnacle Loft Conversions, we are Preston’s leading loft specialists. As a result, we have produced this guide to loft conversion gym ideas.
Loft conversion gym ideas
To create a suitable workout space, your loft conversion will need to meet certain requirements. These include:
- Space- not only does gym equipment take up a lot of room, you’ll also need to consider the head height of your loft too. But don’t worry, if you only have a small loft space, you could use a different range of equipment. For example, an exercise bike can be much less cumbersome than a cross-trainer, and a full rack of kettle-bells will take up less space than a bench press rack. If you are committed to a full scale home gym, why not consider a dormer loft conversion? This involves building out from the home, and increasing the head height significantly.
- Ventilation- all gyms need to be well ventilated. Especially your home gym. So if you have a home gym in mind for your loft, talk to your installation team first. Adding more ventilation bricks, and window options, could be a great idea.
- Sound system- working out to music is a great way to focus the mind while burning those calories. Why not install a high quality sound system in your loft conversion gym? This can really help get the blood pumping.
