Here are the steps how to maintain your old Synthetic Grass:
 
Weekly Maintenance – Most homeowners will need to lightly rinse down their artificial grass lawns once per week. Spraying down the grass fibers with a hose will remove dust and other small debris that has accumulated.
 
Monthly Maintenance – A more thorough synthetic grass cleaning will be done on a monthly basis will keep your lawn green, inviting and clean. Keep in mind that you may need to perform this level of maintenance more often if you have pets or during seasons when trees and shrubs lose their leaves or blooms.Once you have thoroughly cleaned your grass, you may find that it is not standing as upright as you would like and you may also notice that your grass is not erect in a certain area after you, a family member or pet has lain on it. This is easy to fix by simply grooming your lawn by using a broom or handled brush to brush against the natural grain to encourage each blade of artificial grass to stand up properly.

Whatever location you choose for your home gym just make sure you like the lighting, smell and overall atmosphere because if you don’t like the space, you are more likely to not what to spend time there.
  • For Commercial Gym, you need to choose the right location for your gym. If you’re opening a niche gym, just be sure its easily accessible to your target market. Be certain that the facility is large enough to accommodate all your workout equipment while allowing enough space for members to move freely and safely about the premises.

 
Create a Budget

  • Before you start shopping for fitness equipment, you should always establish you budget. Remember that you will save time and money, gas expenses, etc. For home gyms, you can start with just a couple of pieces and build up to what you believe you need to have to meet your fitness goals. For Commercial Gym, you can purchase the equipment’s to a bundle that supplies gym products. You can also do a research where you want to buy the equipment’s that offers discount and good quality.

 
Essential Equipment’s
Equipment’s you can use whether home gym or commercial gym:

  1. Barbell & Plate Set
  • The most important piece of equipment you’ll need for your gym and will be the foundation for all your workouts. You will be able to find all sorts of sets and plates for sale on the internet – including second bargains. Bear in mind that you’ll need a true Olympic bar so that you can rely on its sturdiness and won’t outgrow it.

 

  1. Bench
  • To make the most of your barbell sets, you’ll need a bench. Always go for a bench that has an incline and decline functionality; you may not use these often, but if you decide to go for a split bodybuilding style training phase it’ll come in handy.

 

  1. Rack
  • This is an important element of your gym set-up; it’; be the biggest piece of equipment and the most expensive. You’ll want more commercial feel as you need it to be robust enough to survive all those grueling workouts. You may also want to seek out a rack that can easily take attachments.

 

  1. Flooring
  • A very important aspect of gym planning is the flooring, which must protect your property and help make your gym equipment last longer. Proper gym flooring will also help reduce the sound level coming out of the gym. Aim for a commercial grade foam flooring (you’ll find it in interlocking squares). This will last years and is very affordable. You can also purchase flooring mats through NICE BACKYARD as we supply, install and deliver Rubber Gym Mats and EVA Foam Mats.

 

  1. Kettlebells
  • Opt for a pair of relatively heavy kettlebells (12-16kg) over a rack of dumbbells. Kettlebells is far more versatile piece of equipment. They can replicate most of the exercises you would perform with dumbbells and bring an element of momentum and functional training to your workouts.

 
For Additional Options

Only Buy Quality

  • If you are going to buy equipment for your gym, remember that fitness equipment is one of those buys where you really get what you pay for.

Exercise machines should be safe, durable, and include features that will complement and enhance your workouts, such as built-in workouts and tests, a heart rate monitor, and smart phone connectivity.

 
Know your Workout Style

  • Once you have all the equipment’s needed for your gym, always know what style of workout you will be working on as this will be your daily routine to achieve your body goals. Don’t forget to Set yourself up to a progress as well to track if you did excel in the routine you’re working on. You can also use a help from the trainers if you don’t know what workout style you will be working on. Your trainer will be assisting you and tracking your progress so that your focus will just be doing the routine.

 
Devise a Workout Plan

  • Your gym won’t mean anything if you never use it, so once you’ve got the plan laid out, its time to start planning your work out schedule. For commercial gyms, your trainer will be the one who’s going to manage you when and how your workout schedule will be. For home gyms, one disadvantage is that the normal life – kids, errands, chores etc. – can make it tempt to keep putting off workouts. Just like a doctor’s appointment, work, or your child’s dance class, you should make time every day for your workout.
