Gyms are closed again, but hey, let's look at the silver lining. If there is ever a good time to carve out a little space out of your home for a personal workout gym, this is it. After all, we do not need a huge space to perspire. Just take it from me.

All of the items in the above picture can be moved around to make space for the workout of the day. There are of course pros and cons to this arrangement, the biggest con of which is the fair bit of adjustments you will need to make for your workout. However, that beats grumbling about gyms closure. 

The major pro: Walk two rooms length, and you will be able to get a safe and familiar space to sweat it out until the gyms reopen. 

If a home gym sounds like a promising idea, here are some starter equipment you might want to consider based on your workout needs.
