Building your dream home gym - How to get started!

Building your dream home gym - How to get started!

The term “home gym” can sound expensive and overwhelming but it doesn’t need to be! Building a home gym is a lifetime investment towards a stronger, fitter you, not to mention saving on the monthly costs of a gym membership you may never use.

Home gyms are a great way to look after your physical health without compromising other important things in your life. Training in the comfort of your own home means you have the flexibility to work out in your own time and maintain a healthy work/life balance. 


Don’t know where to begin? It can be overwhelming to try and piece together all the necessary equipment, but lucky for you, we’ve got you covered! Over the years we’ve helped our clients build their perfect home gyms, from spare rooms to garage conversions to outdoor gyms. We’ve picked some home gym essentials to help you get started…



Gym flooring can often be overlooked but we believe it is a foundation of every home gym and you should start from the ground up. We offer a range of flooring options including rubber gym tiles, rubber flooring rolls and gym turf and track. For a home gym, we would recommend using our Anti-Slip Gym Tile as they can be easily lifted and laid without damaging the floor. We also stock a range of weightlifting platforms for those who are serious about weightlifting.

Dumbbells and kettlebells are without a doubt home gym essentials, they are versatile and can be used to carry out most exercises. We stock an extensive weight range, you can opt for a basic 2.5kg or a much more challenging 60kg depending on your fitness level.

We have an extensive range of squat racks and power racks which complete your home gym setup. Our BLK BOX Binary Foldaway Squat Rack is a bestseller for home gyms as a highly compact, wall mounted option. This folding squat rack sits just 65mm from the wall when folded away, making the most of your space. Each of the two uprights includes a plastic foot ensuring there is no damage or scratches to your floor when folding in and out. 

If you are looking for a slightly larger squat rack and have more space to play with, we would recommend one of our power racks from our Goliath Series. All power racks come with a multi-grip pull up bar and 6 utility pegs for storing your weight plates.
