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 small workout room ideas 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). The extra unused space a garage provides makes it one of the most popular home gym ideas around.

Use a Corner of Your Bedroom
Do you have an apartment or other living situation where a garage just isn't an option for small workout room ideas? 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 small home gym ideas than those located on upper floors, where a home gym may be too noisy. When looking for home gym ideas, be sure to see if your bedroom will work.
