Gyms seem to be the big trend nowadays, but they often come with super expensive fees and really, the membership usually gets used lesser than you initially thought. While getting the right fitness equipment at home seems quite expensive at the beginning, what you’re really getting is the same fitness capabilities and the time and convenience.

You are also saving yourself some money, money that you would normally use to pay for fares or fuel to get to your gym. Why not exercise at home where you can shower just a few metres away and then lay in the comfort of your own bed after nearby? Here are some ideas to get you started.

One of the most essential gym equipment is the treadmill, as it provides the most basic of cardio exercise, jogging and running, without you having to go outside. This also saves you from having to endure different weather conditions throughout the year. Look for a treadmill for sale that fits your budget, cardio exercise needs and space.

Yoga Mat

Yoga definitely an easy workout option you can try at home. A reliable yoga mat and stretchable, sturdy yoga gear will serve you well in the long run. You don’t need a professional class, if you have a large TV and an internet connection, many thorough, atmospheric yoga class videos on Youtube can work just as well.


Exercise Bike

If you are not the running type when it comes to cardio, you can always try cross training or even a recumbent exercise bike for a pedalling workout. It will still shave away the calories as well as train your leg strength.


A home gym is not just a fantasy, it can be a convenient, healthy reality for you if you simply know which is the perfect equipment for you and your fitness needs. Afterwards, you can ask your partner (or friend) to give you a massage for your sore muscles as a reward later on on a folding massage table, too!
