In a dungeon of a basement a cramped bed room a covered porch? Where in the house is the best place to work out? What makes a place good to work out in?

Garage, if you have room. Basement would be next best place.

I workout in a room in my basement. It is a little cramped with having 3 benches and enough room for doing all of the needed exercises but I make do. 2 benches I never move and one I move to where I need it and when I need it and when I don't I move it against the wall. If you are set on working out you'll make it work where ever.

The only thing I will add is you must do it somewhere that the floor is solid. The basement or garage have solid concrete floors under them. I would never suggest the anything on the main level or above.

I've got an 18kg 5 year old for weighted press ups (she lays on my back!). As I get stronger she gets heavier--in theory. Wish I had some room for a little bit of gear

I work out in my room. I live in an old house so the basement is very low and my garage is filled with 'stuff.' As said earlier, if your mind is set on working out, you will find a way.

I live in an area of the country where there are no basements so outside on my wisteria covered patio becomes my gym. I don't lift weights because I'm not wanting to bulk up. I do a little workout routine via DVD on my laptop on my enclosed porch. When it gets hot out (which is about 7 months out of the year and hot to me is above 90F) I move to my enclosed porch that has a small window unit. All I need is space to do my forms and I'm happy. Maybe one day in the future after I graduate we'll move to a different part of the country where the soil allows for a basemant.
