DIY Home Gym Makeover {Part 2}


Last week, I shared the before pictures of our garage - half of which we have been working hard to convert into a home gym! Reveal time has finally come!




Let's take a tour...

1 -- What gym would be complete without a dry erase board? This is my place to write up my workouts or goals!

2 -- Motivation Wall! The garage is not normally a place I enjoy being - so I needed to add a little bit of sass. What gym is complete without some inspirational quotes? I found these stickers at Hobby Lobby and framed them on cardstock. The frames and wall clings were an awesome find from Target. 

3 -- This area has several must haves: a basket for towels, a place to hang jump ropes and resistance bands, and some storage. This is still a garage - so I still have to share the space. The bookshelves house all my curriculum for my job. 

4 -- Equipment! Of course I have some of the basics - hand weights, kettlebell, medicine ball, ab roller, and stability ball. I already had most of the equipment - but didn't really have a place to use it.  

5 -- A treadmill is a gym must! It's a great way to get in some quick cardio or steps on your FitBit! (You can often find less expensive ones on Craig's List or Facebook Yardsale Groups.) I love reading on the treadmill. Also, my husband got a Belkin @TV a while back -- so I am also able to watch TV on my Kindle Fire while I walk/jog.

6 -- Nobody wants to do sit ups on a hard, concrete floor. We added in some foam flooring we purchased at 5 Below for $3 a square!
















 My niece, Lydia, helped with the final touches and was ready to get her workout on! {A big thanks to her mom & my sister - Jennifer, over at The Life of Jennifer Dawn - for lending some inspiration and taking most of these fabulous photos!}
