    Question Home Gym Lighting: what's the best solution?

    Hi,
    Which kind of light do you recommend for a home gym in the basement? Neon Light? Bulb? Bright or not? Another much more advanced solution (light voice controlled, dimmer...)?

    Depends how much money you are willing to spend, and whether or not you want the job looking professional. If it were going in a basement or garage, I'd install some cheap ballasts & run full spectrum natural light florescent tubes. You want your gym well lit with good light bulbs that simulate sunlight. Cheap lighting is very fatiguing and could hinder your motivation for workouts.

    Track lighting looks nice, clean, and professional, but it's much more expensive.

    I'm thinking about doing this, but concerned about noise from ballasts. . .
    You need a rack, bench and 300-lb. Oly set. Now, what was your question?

    I have 3 ballasts in my garage gym, and it only makes noise the first 10 seconds being powered while the tubes are warming up. Beyond that is a very subtle and gentle hum that is easily drowned out by lifting weights & low volume music. My biggest concern was cost, and it was a cheap lighting solution. The full spectrum bulbs make a HUGE difference when working out at night. I used to drag ass for workouts and dread the gym/dungeon, and now I feel energized and motivated from good lighting.
