Creating a home gym doesn’t have to be expensive or take up a lot of room. You can get an excellent workout with just some basic and inexpensive home gym fitness equipment, which we will cover in this post.
This exercise equipment can be used for a variety of workout types and by people of all fitness levels to achieve a strong and healthy body of your dreams.
A workout bench is one of the most basic and essential pieces of home gym fitness equipment you can buy. It’s great for a variety of workouts such as sit-ups, crunches, shoulder workouts, chest workouts and more. A workout bench works great in combination with dumbbells and dumbbell exercises. A solid workout bench is the Bowflex SelectTech Adjustable Bench.
Dumbbells are the king of all home gym equipment. The amount of exercises you can do with dumbbells are endless and they can tone and build muscle on every part of your body. A solid dumbbell exercise routine is something I highly recommend for muscle building and really is all you need to get in shape with diet and cardio.
Doing sit-ups, exercises and stretching on wood floors is no fun and not good for your back. A simple yoga mat or workout mat is an inexpensive addition to any home gym that can make working out a little more comfortable. Anyone who works out knows stretchng is very important and having a workout mat is great for your warm-ups.
Want to drop weight fast? Few things are better than a good fast paced heart pumping cardio workout. Finding the time to get outside can be a pain and it’s never fun running or walking outside when its below freezing. The simple solution is to get an exercise bike or treadmill. You don’t need anything fancy, but its nice if the bike or treadmill had a heart rate monitor or calorie counter. If you need something easy on the knees and feet, a recumbent exercise bike might be for you.
There lots of other items you can add to your home gym to keep things dynamic. You could add a boxing bag, chin-up bar, exercise balls, bench press set and more. In the end, the perfect home gym should be perfect for you and no one else. Keep your equipment simple and focus on good workout.
