SO YOU CAN GET FIT & STRONG IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME
A workout space doesn’t have to be an entire room. It only needs to have some flex space where you can shift furniture to create a zone that allows you the space to exercise effectively. You can use some of the furniture in the room as a prop to workout with (doing tricep dips from your ottoman or sofa). I recommend at least a 7′ x 7′ space where you can lay a yoga mat down easily and manage more active exercises (especially if you are working out to a video).
Organize your space so that you have a spot to store your equipment safely, and then you don’t need to pull it out of the closet every workout session. Trust me, the more work you have to do to get prepared for your workouts, the more reasons you will find NOT to exercise. Make it easy on yourself and keep it all in one location. If it's a large open room, consider getting free weight stands and decorative bins that will allow you to store your equipment in the room but maybe not in plain sight.
