Pictures of a Home Gym

A Reader Shows Us Her Home Gym

FitSugar reader Tmvargas wrote this love letter to her home gym for the third challenge of our Get Fit For 2011 giveaway.

It may not be glamorous. It may be blazing hot in the summer and freezing cold in the winter. I may have to keep a tennis racket near me at all times because I'm convinced that a rat is going to get me while I'm trapped on the treadmill. (I swear I saw one.) But it's all mine. It's a place where I can go and do my happy dance when I beat my previous records. It's a place where I can yell at myself to push through the last mile.

It's my happy place. It's my gym.

Be sure to post a photo of your fitness life in our Get Fit For 2011 group to enter our weekly giveaway of a $100 Nike gift card and a chance to win our grand prize — a four-day fitness boot camp in LA! Use the camera on your phone to photograph contents of your gym bag, your home gym, your workout DVD collection, your fave workout wear, or an incredible view from your last bike ride.

This makes me want to have my own gym. I want a place where I can dance and sing while I workout. I don't have enough room in my room, and I don't have a basement....so, I have no idea where to put mine....

I have one just like this in my basement. I'll have to post my home gym. I love not having to drive to the gym. All I have to do is drag my butt back up the steps when I'm done.
