New Year’s Resolutions: Getting Fit with a Home Gym in the Garage

Make Sure Your Garage Door Is In Working Order

Before you start working out within your garage, make sure your garage door is in tip-top shape. Doors that are outdated, damaged, or have not been properly maintained can present a host of problems, ranging from safety concerns to poor insulation and freezing. Make sure you check your garage door’s:

  • Moving parts (springs, levers, etc.);
  • Safety components;
  • Weather-stripping; and
  • Garage door balance.

You should also perform a thorough inspection of your garage door’s surface, both inside and out. If you notice any cracks or dents, you should seek repairs. If your garage door is wooden, check for signs of mold. To aid you in any garage door maintenance or repairs, call the team at Affordable Garage Door, Inc. for timely service.

Spend Money On Good Insulation

No matter how tough you think you are, when temperatures drop below freezing in Dyer, you do not want to be working out in a poorly insulated garage. To keep indoor garage temperatures nice and cozy, and to prevent your garage door parts from freezing during the winter, commit to spending some cash on good insulation. You can insulate garage door walls, and replace your garage door for a more highly insulated one.

Keep Dangerous Products Stored Away

Your garage can operate as a place that stores both your odds and ends and your workout equipment, as long as it is done safely. If you have any chemicals or substances in the garage that could be dangerous, make sure that they are stored away in a locked cabinet and are properly sealed as to not give off any fumes. When you’re breathing hard, the last thing that you want to have to worry about is the inhalation of dangerous chemicals.
