What gym equipment can I have at home?

Are you thinking about getting some gym equipment at your home? That is almost always a good idea, but let’s first see if you are the right candidate for this. Don’t forget that the gym equipment is usually not very cheap.

First of all, are you motivated enough to train without a mentor / trainer, like in a classic gym? Furthermore, are you sure that you want to have a  work out home experience? Do you want to invest up to an hour at least 3-4 times a week without losing time on the road and getting back from the gym? Are you tired of waiting during your each session for equipment at your local gym to finally become available? If all your answers are yes, then getting some gym equipment at home is the right solution for you.

The next step is to purchase the equipment, so I will list the basic equipment you will need in your home gym. Also, it is important to know whether you want to engage into it on a more professional or merely amateur level. You must know your fitness goals.

  1. Resistance bands

This is the favorite part of equipment for many women because it is accessible to everyone, it is easily portable, easy to use and can be used really anytime, anywhere. The best thing is: It makes wonders for your legs and buttocks.

  1. Kettlebell 16, 20 and 24kg (8, 12 and 16 for women)

We are getting serious now. Kettlebell is truly a unique, inevitable piece of every gym, including home gyms. Professional athletes and personal trainers quickly recognized all the benefits of using a kettlebell. Explosive power, superior durability, perfect appearance and muscle definition are the benefits of using this simple tool. However, regardless of its simplicity, there is practically an infinite number of combinations for exercising with kettlebell. The best thing is that every exercise involves all the main muscles: the legs, the abdomen, the chest, the back, the shoulders, the arms.

  1. Suspension trainer

This is a fun, useful, must-have piece of equipment for your home gym. Have a professional install it and start defining your body in dozens of ways. I would say that this is one of the key pieces of equipment for your weight loss transformation.

For better results at your home gym, you should also get the pilates ball and preferably a top rated elliptical machine or a treadmill.
