Creating a loft conversion gym space

During the lockdown you might have found creative ways of making gym space in your home, but wouldn’t this be more convenient if you had a full gym room? Converting your loft space into a gym can be a very effective solution. Here at Pinnacle Loft Conversions, we are Preston’s leading loft specialists. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should consider when creating a loft conversion gym space.

What are the important considerations when creating a loft conversion gym space?

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.
