Home Gym
« on: December 29, 2013, 11:17:02 AM »
Sorry it took so long to post the pics, I'm amazed at how slow I'm moving now. My home gym is pretty basic, and it works out great as a place for children to play games or watch a different movie when they are visiting with friends. The bike on the trainer will get turned when I'm on it, and obviously I have to move the crux out from behind the treadmill when I want to use the treadmill. We will eventually put bike racks on the wall or ceiling, my caad is in the garage sans wheels :-( for now. The Raiders decor is John's retired living room decor, he had to grow up a little when I moved in poor guy :(






Sorry, I'm not a great picture taker :)


How does everyone elses home set ups look? I bet some of you have some really nice rooms.

 :lol:
We enclosed a screened in porch, so now I use that, I put down a mat and setup trainer on there.  I have to take it down after each ride (which isn't too frequent now) cause the little one will put her hand all over the bike.  I've caught her spinning the cranks before, which could easily lead to finger/hand getting caught.
WC is the Debil.

When I'm healthy I like to do a lot of cross training, so I'm excited about the matts. I'm probably going to use the treadmill more that I would care for, it's not as safe to run in this area as it was with my house. Walked on the treadmill last night, will try spinning on the trainer tonight, but so far so good.

We wound up having to put tape under the mats, they would pop up or come apart while we were using them. Duct tape is working great, the mats are nice, glad we don't have to worry about tearing up the new carpet.
