A home gym needs a couple of things

One of the things I’ve fawned over in my life… is people who stay super fit all the time.

It’s because I struggle so much with getting enough exercise.

I enjoy exercising and moving my body around, but I have trouble getting high intensity workouts that are necessary to keep your body fit and toned. I prefer the slow, calming workouts, and it’s difficult for me to get extremely sweaty on purpose. I don’t love the feeling of my heart pounding out of my chest. I don’t enjoy wondering if I’m about to vomit everywhere. It only makes matters worse when you have to attend a crappy local gym with terrible indoor air quality. For most of my adulthood, I’ve had an extremely cheap gym membership. This means I have visited extremely hot and uncomfortable gyms. Without professionally installed, high powered air conditioning and air purification systems, for all these years I haven’t enjoyed my workouts, whatsoever. That’s why I decided to get some HVAC in place, create my own home gym, and hopefully reduce the amount of effort that it takes to comfortably work out. I figured, if I could easily install and control my own cooling system and air quality settings, it would improve my desire to work out. I started by getting myself a brand new air conditioning window unit, which I quickly positioned in the workout room in my basement. Then I purchased a dehumidifier, to assist with removing all the gross air-born moisture. Lastly, I bought a simple box fan for incredible ventilation power. These days, it feels like I’m working out in paradise.
