Make a Plan and Order Fitness Equipment
Once you find your home gym space, you should make a plan for how you want the space to look. Before you paint the walls or start adding equipment, you should make sure you have a vision in place so that you can get everything done efficiently and within your budget.
You can follow these steps to start:
- Draw your room to scale
- Measure workout equipment
- Measure furniture or other items in the room
- Arrange everything in your room layout, leaving room for you to comfortably complete a workout
Once you have a layout of what you need and what you can fit, then you can start selecting equipment and ordering what you need to complete the gym. Then you can get to the fun part.
You can paint the walls, get fun or colorful mats, deep clean, and rearrange furniture to prepare before the equipment arrives. You can also find storage for your weights, or if you want to hide the equipment during the day or when you have company, you can make space in a closet to put it away when you’re done.
You should start by bringing in the big equipment, and then move into strength training dumbbells or elastic bands, or yoga mats. You want to make sure the big things fit first, so that nothing feels too crowded or cluttered and prevents you from having enough space to work out.

Now that you know how to organize your fitness equipment at home, you’re ready to set up your at-home gym.
