Set Aside a Part of Your Garage
If you have a garage, you probably have enough room for a home gym...if you look for it. The average home gym only requires around a 10 x 6 ft. space for the most effective workouts, and that space is often easy to find if you are willing to clean up and maybe move supplies to a shed or storage unit (especially true for larger two-car garages where you have a lot of space to work with).

Use a Corner of Your Bedroom
Do you have an apartment or other living situation where a garage just isn't an option? Take a look around your bedroom: With a little repositioning of bedroom furniture, you may be able to clear out a large enough corner for a basic home gym. The caveat is that ground-floor bedrooms tend to work far better for home gym ideas than those located on upper floors, where a home gym may be too noisy.
