Andrew wanted a room that he would actually feel motivated by. His design team, led by real estate and renovation expert Scott McGillivray had all the answers. Then they powered it with fitness equipment and accessories from Spartan Fitness!
Even utilitarian rooms need a little personality. Along with the murals, Scott's team added a storage unit with space for accessories – both functional and decorative. “You’re always going to need somewhere to put water bottles, towels, maybe a plant or photo frame. So give yourself an area where you can add those personal touches.” It’s also wise to include hooks for hanging mats and other accessories, and baskets for yoga mats and the like. “A gym is by nature a busy looking room because of all the equipment, so make sure you have somewhere to store all your accessories.”

Is the Assault Bike Right for You?
While fan bikes have existed for nearly half a century, modern advances in the technology have made them increasingly in-demand among military personnel, pro and college football/basketball/soccer teams, competitive cyclists and sprinters, and high-performance athletes from the cross-training ranks. The great thing about the Assault AirBike, though, is that it’s equally effective for young people, beginner athletes, or those rehabbing from injury. You set your own pace. The bike’s multiple, custom seat adjustments also make for a more comfortable ride for people of varying heights and body types. Learn more

Why it's just as important as your workout!
We all love that feeling after we finish a tough workout; well at least most of us do. That “runner’s high” or “the pump” that you feel is something incredible that pushes us to want to do it all over again, no matter how sore, tired, or busy we are. Equally as important as the workout itself, our bodies require the proper recovery and rest to help repair and build lean muscle. Without it, all that hard work may as well be for nothing. Following necessary recovery strategies will help your body be ready to give everything you have to your next workout, allowing you to see results much quicker.
