For millions of people, 2020 was the year that they discovered the benefits of working out at home. No travel; no gym fees, a clean, available shower and a long cool glass of water within arm’s reach. While many people have drifted back to the gym for practical or social reasons, others are finding it easier to stick with the home workout.
So, what are the essential pieces of home gym equipment that will help to achieve your fitness goals and grow with you as you get fitter and stronger?
A rowing machine is a great piece of kit to build overall fitness, strengthen your cardiovascular system and work lower, upper and core muscles at the same time. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune either. If your budget only stretches to one ‘big’ piece of equipment, then this is a good one to consider.
Tiny budget and big fitness goals? Like to exercise outside or on the move? A set of resistance bands can give you a full-body workout and build muscle tone. They are a brilliantly flexible choice for anyone who doesn’t want to be tied down or out of pocket!
If you have more money to invest in your home gym, then a state-of-the-art, at-home bike is hard to beat. With next-generation, smart technology and interactive options, this is as much a lifestyle choice as a fitness one.
Fixed weights are great for beginners to start with, and preferably sealed in rubber or neoprene (good for protecting floors and easier to grip). Unless you’re planning on using the weights for ab-rolling, then the popular hex shape won’t roll anywhere you don’t want them to.
If you’re big on enthusiasm but short on space, a pull-up bar is a gamechanger. This one by AmazeFan has several grip options and you can even hang a punching bag from it! Getting a whole-body workout with resistance training and cardio, in a space no bigger than a doorway? Win.
