Home Gyms: Remodeling Not Required

Equipping a home with an exercise area can increase its appeal to buyers.

Despite the current economic slowdown, retail sales of home gym equipment continue to grow, topping $5 billion in 2006 and rising another 3 percent in 2007, according to the National Sporting Goods Association.

Designating a spare room as an exercise area doesn’t necessarily require the purchase of expensive equipment, says exercise physiologist Bob Greene, certified personal trainer to Oprah Winfrey. He proposes simple, lower-cost alternatives to expensive exercise equipment.

No remodeling is required, but the equipment will suggest the possibilities to potential buyers.
