Still keeping up with your resolution for the New Year? For most of us, this includes a plan to be more active, healthy, and physically fit. What better form of motivation than a gym right in your own home? Turn one of these rooms in your home into a gym.

Have extra storage room in your garage? Fill it with your favorite gym equipment!

A finished basement may be another great option for your new home gym. (Maybe you could work out while waiting for the laundry to finish!)

Upstairs, a great, unused space may be the loft or a bonus room that everyone has easy access to.

Want to be motivated to work out right when you wake up? Why not add a home gym right in bedroom?

Try adding a stationary bike or treadmill to a room that overlooks your balcony. It’s good for fresh air, a nicer view than the TV screen and you’ll feel like you’re running outside!

We’d love to hear your other ideas for great home gyms!
