How are those New Year’s Resolutions coming along? If you made fitness goals, then this post is for you! Before our lower level was finished, I was fairly diligent about getting in an elliptical workout. Now that our home gym is complete, I’ve been even more motivated, and switching up my workout much more! So many times our moods are affected by our surroundings and that’s definitely been the case here!
The Basic Design
I’ve previously shared reveals of our lower level kitchenette and great room. We continued the engineered hardwood through this space for it’s scratch resistance, durability, and ease of cleaning. As much as I love light fixtures, the ceilings are 8.5 feet so LED can lights were the way to go with the height of the elliptical. I painted the space my very favorite gray, Sherwin Williams Repose Gray. The doors are a classic white 2 panel door with this sleek black modern door hardware, which is also throughout the rest of our lower level.
We have had this elliptical (ours is an older version) for years and we absolutely love it. You an adjust the incline, resistance and it has a fan that blows on our face! All it’s missing is a gym attendant to bring you a cold bottle of water and an Evian Spritz! I also purchased this exercise mat with cushion (great for your knees) and this exercise ball. (Both are on sale right now!) We already had a variety of free weights but if you don’t, this set is great because it comes with a stand!
Again, since our environments affect our mood, even the exercise room needed a little pretty. I love cobalt blue and greenery especially for an upbeat space! These botanical wall art pieces (here and here) are perfect for the ledge. This vase and greenery completes the look. My kids often come in here to hangout while I workout, so this chair in the corner topped with a throw pillow is perfect for that!
I hope you enjoyed this post! Now go crush those resolutions!
