Did you know that over 25 million people use a home gym per year? With people wanting to be healthy while avoiding expensive gym membership fees, a home gym is a great alternative. If you want to get started on creating your own home gym, follow the tips below and soon you’ll be working up a home-grown sweat!
Be smart with dumbbells
Dumbbells are so versatile, and they can transform even simple exercise moves into full-body workouts. Choose two or three weights that you use often, or invest in an adjustable set.
Have a ball
Inexpensive and adaptable, a stability ball is an excellent addition to any home gym. Use it as a bench when you use your dumbbells or try one of these exercises.
Don’t forget cardio
While the word “cardio” brings to mind big (and expensive!) machines such as treadmills, you can get your heart pounding with much simpler items. A jump rope is inexpensive and one of the greatest tools for burning calories and tightening your ab muscles.
Bring in the experts
Instead of hiring a personal trainer, keep some workout videos handy to motivate you and help you get the most out of your workout. Save even more money by using YouTube (there are plenty of fitness vloggers out there).
Big ticket items for less
You don’t have to break the bank to get bigger items such as treadmills or ellipticals. Check Craigslist and other local listings to find pre-owned equipment, or contact manufacturers and retailers to see if they have any deals.
