A Home Gym You Can Store in a Closet

Our community in Sherman Oaks, California, loves incorporating a healthy lifestyle in each of our roomy floor plans. Here are some tips as to how you can incorporate a storable gym in your very home!

Resistance Bands

Resistance bands can be used to tone up a variety of areas of the body without taking up a lot of storage space. Best of all, they are relatively inexpensive to buy and easy to use. You can attach these bands to a door or use them as standalone gear.

Hand Weights

Sometimes referred to as dumbbells, hand weights are usually from one to ten pounds. Modern weight sets are often coated in colorful neoprene that provides a softer more cushioned texture. Sets can include six or eight pairs and are superb for working out the upper body, like your chest, shoulders, and arms.

Stackable Steps

Usually made from heavy plastic, stackable steps can be great for lower body and aerobic workouts. Using them helps provide a more varied workout with steps that can be adjusted to different heights. They can be easily stored in a closet, cabinet, or drawer when not in use.

Exercise Pedals 

Those who want to simulate cycling can get a workout with portable exercise pedals. These pedals are placed on a floor while the user sits in a chair nearby, places their feet on the pedals and moves their legs as if they were pedaling a bike. Many of these units allow for the friction to be adjusted to heighten the impact.

You can create a varied workout and keep your equipment all in the space available in a closet–or even less! If you know of someone who would enjoy living in our Sherman Oaks Apartments, have them call to schedule a tour today!
