Setting Up A Bowflex Blaze Home Gym: 3 Tips To Consider

Working out was never really on my mind, until I got married and had two children. I lost quite a bit of my pregnancy weight, but there was still some hanging around.

Because of the cost associated with joining a gym, I decided that setting up a gym in my home was more cost effective and convenient. I decided to buy a complete machine and you can read all about it in this Bowflex Blaze home gym review.

Also the following tips were important to me as I got started.

Decide Where to Work Out

Pick an area of the house that is suitable for working out. A hard surface is preferable to carpet, and good ventilation is a must. In addition, if you have the space, it is best to work out in an area that is removed from other areas of the house. Exercising can be a loud process, and you do not want to disturb your family members.

Figure Out What You Need

There are a few pieces of equipment that are essential as you get started. These may vary slightly depending on your needs, so be sure to do your research to determine what is important. A yoga mat and resistance bands, for example, are generally good choices.  I also use Bowflex SelectTech 552 dumbbells along side my Blaze home gym.

Purchase Pre-Owned Gym Products

Craigslist can be a lifesaver. Once you know what you need to get started with your home gym, make a list of each item, along with its retail value. Then, scour Craigslist for the best deals and pick up the equipment on the cheap. Remember to be safe, however. Only meet sellers in public areas to complete the transaction.

Having a Bowflex Blaze home gym is a great way to get in shape without paying monthly fees or trying to find the time to get away from the house. Follow the tips above to get started on the creation of your workout space.
