Home Gyms-On the level
So, a home gym is where you want to be at to improve
fitness. Great! Now, where on Earth do you start?
This decision will mainly be based on two things. Your
fitness level and amount of space you have. The fitter you
are the more challenging your home gym equipment, and
probably a separate space will be set aside.
Experts will need a full-on gym capable of many exercise
Lets start at the beginning: low fitness level, need
compact equipment because you only have a corner of the
lounge room. Needless to say, this will be at the lower end
of the cost scale as well, as low as $500 can start you
Training needs to include aerobic fitness equipment, and
resistance training. Starting out with a stationary bike or
treadmill takes care of aerobics. For simple resistance
work dumbbells are a great option.
With a little more space, a home gym that combines a few
different exercises is the way to go. These are
freestanding units, usually with seated and standing work
Pricing can go anywhere from $800-$5000 depending on size
Buying new means you can sell it when upgrading. Most
people start small and then clear a spare room, attic, or
garage to set up larger home gyms with more variety.
A home gym set-up can happen with modest outlay and space
requirements, and added to gradually. Most levels of
fitness and financial capacity can be catered for.
