Where is Your Home Gym?
In a an attempt to do something about my ever- decreasing bone mass, I just started working out with a personal trainer. I'm meeting him weekly at his studio, but of course I need to work out on my own at least once, preferably twice a week. So far, I've amassed the following equipment: three sets of dumbbells, (stored under the bed)and a resistance band (easily tucked away wherever). I need to get: a small bench and a stability ball. My 2nd bedroom already serves as a computer room, music room (w/a small keyboard) and an ironing space. Now it looks like I'll need to make it into a home gym as well! Desperate times call for desperate measures so I'm thinking of using the bench for my piano stool. The stability ball can be stashed under the desk when not in use. Utilizing the resistance band is the greatest challenge, as there is absolutely no place to hang or wrap it upstairs. The bottom level of my raised ranch tests slightly over the limit for radon, so I really hate to spend much exercise time there, but there are posts I can use for the band, so I may have to unless I want to take it outside and wrap it around the deck! I also thought I might put in a couple of smallish hooks upstairs so I can use it there.
Has anyone else run into this problem with their small house and if so, what did you do?
