Create A Home Gym That Won’t Knock Out Your Bank Balance

For fitness fanatics everywhere, the idea of having your very own home gym can be very attractive. Not only will you cut back on your monthly outgoings, you have the option of working out whenever you want without actually having to leave the comfort of your own home. However, it is the initial cost that puts most people off. Investing in a whole load of pricey machinery can be a high expenditure for anyone. But there are plenty of cost-saving techniques that you can use to create your own home gym at a fraction of the cost. Here are just a few of them.

Choose Your Space

You will ideally want to choose a space where you are away from the rest of the household so you can really focus on your workout. A dedicated room with a door is a start, and then you can block out any external noise with the help of a stereo if possible. You should also consider investing in at least one full-length mirror so you are fully able to examine your form and technique. Once you have this initial space, you can start to customise it depending on your own preferences.

Work Out What You Are Training For and Get Equipment

This is where your own personal training regime will come into play. What you buy all depends on whether you are aiming for weight loss, cardio, strength training or some combination of all three. A set of dumbbells should really play a part in all home gyms. A big trend in recent years, you should also learn how to exercise with kettlebell. Another common item in pretty much every home gym is a stability ball which can be used to work out a whole range of muscles. Resistance bands are also very versatile and won’t take up a great deal of space in your home gym.

Don’t Miss Out on Cardio

The list of equipment we have talked about so far covers all kinds of muscle building and strength maintaining, but you want to make sure that you don’t skip any cardio that you want to be taking part in. Skipping is a great exercise that only requires a single piece of equipment. You could also try creating a cardio circuit where you move between different activities such as jumping jacks, aerobic steppers and squats. Remember, keeping your heart rate up doesn’t have to be expensive.

Big Ticket Items

If you do decide that it is time for you to invest in a more expensive piece of equipment, you need to carefully consider which one would be best for you. If you are a passionate runner who tends to slow down a lot during the winter months, a treadmill may be the perfect option for you. Ultimately, you should make sure to try out whatever you are thinking about buying so you get the right product for your needs. If you are looking for cheaper equipment, be on the lookout for gyms that go out of business that may be looking to unload their stock.
