How to make a Home Gym
The current state of fitness in the UK, highlighted in a recent report, has attributed lower basic levels of fitness to lifestyle factors such as new technology making it easier to move less, desk jobs, and increasingly busy lives.
Furthermore, there are many gym enthusiasts who have been unable to attend their regular sessions, facing barriers such as lack of income or time. As a result, many have turned to working out at home. This has helped them to achieve specific exercise goals, improve strength and cardiovascular fitness and boost overall health, all without leaving their own doorstep.
Data released just after the inevitable surge of home workouts during lockdown showed that 74 per cent of those surveyed had at least one home fitness product in their home and most intended to continue their home workouts.
In the wake of this, the idea of a home gym has become increasingly appealing and many have expressed their interest in the adoption of a Versaclimber as an essential part of their setup. Here we explore its benefits and how to set up and maintain your own home gym.

Setting up and maintaining your home gym
Here are some considerations to take into account once you’ve decided to build your home gym:
- Find the right space: Start by identifying a dedicated space for your home gym. Consider factors like lighting, ventilation, and privacy. A well-lit and well-ventilated area will create a comfortable workout environment.
- Add your equipment: Once you have your space ready, it’s time to set up. The Versaclimber is a popular option and with all apparatus be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions. This will mean that for some you will need to look at the product’s assembly – ensure all items are placed on a stable and level surface. Additionally, consider adding mirrors to your gym space to check your form and posture during workouts.
- Maintaining and cleaning your home gym: Regular maintenance is crucial to keep your equipment in top condition. Clean it after each use to prevent dust build-up and wipe down the handles and surfaces with a gentle disinfectant. Inspect equipment periodically for any loose parts or wear and tear, and address any issues promptly to ensure safe and effective workouts.
Building your home gym workout routine
Now that your home gym is set up and ready to go, it’s time to design an effective workout routine. Start with a warm-up to prepare your body for exercise. You can include stretches, mobility exercises, or light cardio to get your blood flowing.
Next, explore different workout programmes that target your fitness goals. With Versaclimber, you can perform exercises like climbing, squats, and cardio-based activity, which can be incorporated into a comprehensive routine. Focus on a mix of cardiovascular and strength-training exercises to achieve a balanced workout.
Building a home gym with a Versaclimber is a great choice for fitness enthusiasts seeking convenience, versatility, and efficiency in their workouts. Whether you’re looking to lose weight, build strength, or improve your overall fitness, a home gym is a great place to do it.
