How to turn your concrete garage into a fitness room

Garage fitness room

Gyms are at their busiest during the summer months, with Yorkshire residents looking to get in shape before they jet off on their holidays. But not everyone has the luxury of living near or affording a good gym every month, and therefore a lot of residents are looking to convert wasted living space in their home into their own personal fitness room.

Perhaps the most common space for converting is the concrete garage, with homeowners now looking to make the most out of their home rather than moving.

So how could you turn your concrete garage into a fitness room? You’ll need to think about these next steps before you begin the process:

1. Design challenges:
Using your concrete garage as a living space all year round will require some additional insulation – particularly in the winter months. To do this you will need to speak to a professional team like Dencroft who have experience in insulating concrete garages. What’s more, with limited floor space you’ll need to think of a plan of where to store equipment. Utilizing overhead space is ideal, with an accommodating layout to back this up.

2. Gas, Plumbing and Electricity:
As well as insulation, concrete garages may need additional things installing such as gas, plumbing and electricity. This is an essential if you are putting equipment in there that need to run on power. Heating is also important especially during the winter months, with plumbing ideal If you need a quick refreshment during your workout, or even a shower afterwards (if you have the space)!

3. Flooring:
Concrete is not an ideal floor to work out on, therefor you should look to invest in high quality gym flooring to fit out your concrete garage. This will avoid any injuries for you if you are using the gym on a day-to-day basis.
