Welcome to our blog on building your own home workout studio! At Pilates Shop, we are passionate about helping people achieve their best physical health through Pilates and other forms of exercise. As leading experts in Pilates reformer machines, we want to share with you some tips and tricks from our Founder and Lead Physiotherapist on how to set up your own home workout studio.
Working out at home has become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. Having your own home workout studio allows you to exercise on your own schedule, in the comfort of your own home, and without the distractions of a gym. Plus, with the right equipment and a little bit of planning, you can create a space that is just as effective as a gym.
Where do you start when building your workout studio?
When setting up your own home workout studio, it's important to make the most of the space you have available. One great option is to set up your studio in a corner of your home, such as a spare bedroom or a corner of your living room. By utilising a corner of your home, you can create a dedicated space for your workout without taking up too much room.
One of the most important things to consider when setting up your own home workout studio is the equipment you will need. A Pilates reformer machine is a great piece of equipment to have because it provides a full-body workout that is low-impact and easy on the joints. At Pilates Shop, we offer a variety of reformers that are designed by our lead physiotherapist & founder, Mena, to ensure that they are of the highest quality and that they provide the best possible workout experience.
One tip for making the most of a small space is to invest in a foldable reformer, such as the Kaizen or Ziva reformer. These reformers are designed to be compact and easy to store, making them perfect for small spaces. They can be easily folded up and put away when not in use.
Remember to make space for your phone or laptop
Another tip for making the most of a small space is to set up a laptop or phone to watch workout videos. This is a great way to follow along with a workout class or tutorial without taking up too much space. You can place your device on a small table or shelf nearby, or you can even mount it on the wall using a mount.
Accessories that make a big difference
When setting up your home workout studio, it's also important to think about the accessories you'll need. A good speaker is a great addition to your studio, as it will allow you to play music or follow along with workout videos. You can place a speaker on a shelf or table nearby, or you can even mount it on the wall.
Other useful items for your home workout studio include cold water bottles, towels, mirrors, and yoga mats. These items can help to make your workout more comfortable and more effective. Cold water bottles are great for keeping you hydrated during your workout, while towels are great for wiping away sweat. Mirrors can help you check your form, while yoga mats can provide a cushioned surface to exercise on.

Investment in home gyms on the rise due to rising costs

Building a home workout studio with the right equipment and a little bit of planning can be just as effective as a gym, and it's a great way to stay fit and healthy in the comfort of your own home.
At Pilates Shop, we understand this, that's why we offer a wide range of Pilates reformer machines that are designed by our lead physiotherapist, Mena, to ensure that they are of the highest quality and that they provide the best possible workout experience.
