Creating the Perfectly Heated Home Gym
May 23, 2016 | by Monica Irgens
For those who enjoy regular exercise and workouts a home gym is something to be desired. Its open 24/7. No drive time. No restrictions. No sharing or wait time for a piece of equipment. If you decide to create your own home gym there are a few essentials whether you are in to it weight loss, cardio fitness or strength training.
Standard equipment usually includes a barbell and plate set, bench, rack, kettlebells, dumbbells and treadmill. Tailor your environment to your personality so that as you walk into the gym you feel stimulated to hard work.
Flooring is a very important aspect of gym planning. It is needed to protect your property and minimize noise. Commercial grade foam or rubber flooring comes in rolls or interlocking squares. If your gym is in the basement an underfloor heating system will eliminate the cold.
STEP Warmfloor® is a durable, thin low-voltage heating element that goes directly under floorcoverings. It is self-regulating, cannot overheat and is very energy-efficient. You get an even heat temperature over the whole floor. A thermal barrier between the slab and the element adds efficiency by pushing the heat where you want it. Also STEP Warmfloor® will provide you a healthy environment as it does not blow allergens as forced air systems do.
