A New Room For A New You

Many resolutions fail to make it past the month of January. If you are one of the many people who resolved to make over their bodies in the New Year but have already slacked off, you could probably use a little motivation to get going again. Why not adapt an extra room of your house to serve as inspiring space to get in shape?

Unless you choose your basement or garage as a designated workout area, there is no reason to make the space look like a gym. Outfit the room like you would any other and it can double as a home office or guest quarters when work out time is over.

Instead of bulky machines, try practicing yoga or Pilates to help improve both body and spirit. The equipment is unobtrusive and even blends in with the room’s d├ęcor. Otherwise, simply stash it in one of the smart storage solutions you find for the space.

Did you resolve to lose weight, get in better shape or be healthier this year? Is your workout space visually inspiring?
