Home Gym Organization

Hi friends. It’s finally time to reveal our home gym! I think this has been the most requested post I’ve gotten this year (besides my Sunday meal prep – which I will do soon). When we built our new home, we decided to add an extra bay in our garage, so we had the space for a home gym. My husband parks his truck in the driveway and mine is in the first bay. We use the second bay for bikes and the lawn mower. It worked out perfectly and we are so thrilled with our home gym.
Our gym area measures 15 ft wide x 24 ft long. We had spray foam insulation installed in the walls and ceiling to maintain a cooler temperature during the summer and warmer temperature in the winter. So far, it’s worked great. We will be installing wall fans before summer arrives though. I’m hoping we won’t need to install an ac unit.
We had a full length wall mirror installed on the left wall. It makes the gym appear larger and it’s great to observe our form when lifting. We also had the garage floor painted with industrial-grade polymer flooring. This is not a big box store floor paint. We used Carolina Flooring Specialists. I highly recommend them if you are in North or South Carolina.
My husband and son love the squat cage. We found it at Dicks Sporting Goods. The weight bench is from Target. The square gym floor mats were purchased at Marshalls.
This is our dumbbell corner. I also purchased a small weight bench for this area. This “gym” sign was found at an antique store.
We purchased a 5-50 pound dumbbell set. I love and use them daily!
On the middle wall is our big screen tv (with Apple TV) and our miscellaneous workout items. For reference, our tv is 70″.
I found the stand at Birch Lane a few years ago.
All of the bins are from Target. I keep a bin filled with black hand towels that we grab during sweaty workouts.
I have had SO many requests to share my workout playlist with everyone. Here it is –> Toni’s workout songs. These songs motivate me to get through my daily workouts. I use a Bose speaker. This speaker is no longer available but there are many other options to choose from. Whatever you get, I highly recommend a Bose.
