Healthy Attitude


Pursuing a healthy lifestyle is not a trend; it is an investment in becoming a healthier, happier, more resilient version of yourself. As Polly Tyekiff of Eleiko explains.

 Prioritising your physical and mental wellbeing has never been so important. Staying active, especially through strength training, has a proven positive impact on boosting immunity, reducing stress, and getting us better prepared to take on life’s challenges. As we like to say at Eleiko “strong is happy”.    

For many, personal and professional schedules are the busiest they have been. As we’re challenged to find balance as boundaries between work and home life blur. With restricted access to your favourite gyms and health clubs and the possibility of continuing lockdowns, you can take control of your wellbeing by creating a space at home to exercise.   

A bespoke home gym will provide accessibility, encourage consistency, and ensure both your health and wellbeing comes first. These spaces are delivering strong results far beyond the usual health benefits. And a time where we’re presented with situations outside of our control, it’s vital that we make space for strength and selfcare.  

Creating a well-equipped gym environment within your property – be that transforming a basement, garage, or outbuilding, has never been so popular. When planning, it’s key to explore ways of maximising training versatility and equipping your space in a way that keeps you motivated and inspired to workout. The key elements to consider when planning your home gym are, Space, Equipment and Design.    

Set yourself up for success. Any space should encompass your lifestyle, training preferences and room aesthetics to create a gym you will use and enjoy. Whether a dedicated room, a garage conversion, or a multipurpose space, determining the available square footage is the first step and will help inform all your other decisions.   

While you need to keep space considerations in mind, equipment choices will play an important role in ensuring a successful build. Consider how you want to train and what programming you follow, as this will influence the equipment you need. Whether functional training, weightlifting, body building or high intensity workouts, investing in a collection of free weight essentials – a bar, discs, dumbbells, and a rack, will deliver optimal training versatility. In the recent past, Rowing Machines have become star players in the game of fitness. If these machines interest you enough to want to invest in them, then worry not. You can check out an interesting article on which rowing machines to invest in, whether the Ergatta or the Concept 2 you make the pick. Precision engineering, quality materials and manufacturing will deliver discernibly better results. In addition to a more positive training experience, quality equipment will ensure product longevity, lifter safety and improved performance outcomes.  

Once the space and training preferences are chosen, it’s time to bring the space to life. Working with a layout specialist will ensure training needs are met, space is used efficiently, and that your personality is encapsulated in the design. 

Utilising innovative products with smart solutions such as compact storage, sound dampening platforms and well-planned, versatile layouts, make it possible to create both functional and aesthetically pleasing training space, while complimenting the look and feel of your home.  Regardless of the project scale, partner with Eleiko to create a quality crafted, bespoke home gym solution that delivers our signature feel and performance in the comfort of your home.
