Exercise provides a plethora of positive attributes for our bodies, whether its controlling weight conditions, combating health problems, or just improving our overall mental health and well being. The extensive benefits associated with exercise are hard to ignore.
However, it’s not always easy to conjure up the courage to get physically active. Indeed, unless you’re an innate fitness freak blessed with fast twitch muscle fibres, you’ll likely be accustomed to the “I’m too tired” or “I don’t have enough time” excuses synonymous with neglect and inactivity (don’t worry, we’re all guilty of it).
Yearning for a dedicated place where you can work out with stimulation is a common problem many people have, particularly now thanks to Covid-19 lockdowns. However, with the new year on the horizon and thus lifestyle changes likely to be considered going into 2021, you may be looking for some much needed-motivation?
While we’re not claiming to be fitness gurus or personal trainers here at EazyWallz, there’s much to be said for the psychology of interior design and how it can affect your overall motivation and productivity levels. Whether it’s through the medium of brightly colored gym wallpaper designed to enliven the space, or beach murals to get that “summer body” inspiration, our gym decor ideas are likely to get your heart racing. Here’s how...
Motivational Gym Wall Mural Decor
Home gyms are a wonderful luxury. The freedom and flexibility offered by building a home gym or exercise room is a great investment, and will soon recoup its worth in memberships. Design ideas might conjure up images of exercise bikes, treadmills and heavy weights, but if that isn’t your thing it can really be as simple as having an open, airy studio in which to practice yoga or pilates.
However, a fruitful design idea may be to incorporate a wall mural in your home gym, to tell a compelling story or send a colorful, creative message that can boost morale.
Ward Farnsworth, Dean at the University of Texas, stipulates that people have an, “appetite for well-expressed wisdom, motivational quotes or otherwise.” Farnsworth also believes that it is not just the meaning behind motivational quotes or phrases that resonate with people but the details of the wording that is important.

Wall murals are an inspirational, stylish way to help you reach your goals. Whether you’re a runner, yogi, weightlifter, or anything in-between, there’s a wallpaper mural to encourage you to go the extra mile.
