Steps for building an accessible home gym

  1. Use the interlocking rubber pad squares to build a floor for the home gym. Lay them down in the space using the locking system, starting from a corner and working your way out. You can trim the ends with a finished piece of foam.
  2. Mount the metal framing with J-channel on a wall using screws and a driver, keeping the larger piece of J-channel on top.
  3. Pop the mirror into the framing and make sure it catches on the J-channel at the top and bottom.
  4. Attach the fitness equipment to wall studs or place on the floor.
