Exercise Equipment for a Home Gym
By Darren O
Attending a Gym
or Health Club can be a very rewarding pastime. Those that go to the gym love
to exercise and stay fit, they love that feeling of being fit and healthy,
however most people just canít seem to find the time or the motivation these
days, with work demands or the thought of having to get off that comfortable
couch and face that long drive to the gym, itís getting more and more difficult
to consistently get there.
One of the ways
around those obstacles would be to invest in a Home Gym. It doesnít have to be
fancy or very expensive, just a basic Home Gym will suffice. Here are some
advantages of have a home gym:
travelling to and from the gym.
around for someone to finish their set.
available at home.
silly music Ė you can choose your own.
concentration, no distractions.
exercise anytime day or night 7 days a week.
need a medium sized floor space.
control of hygiene at home.
So what Exercise
Equipment do I need for a Home Gym?
That depends on
your goals, your budget, and your floor space. Assuming that your budget is
fair (a home gym is really not that expensive) and your floor space is a decent
size, you need to consider your exercise goals. What do you want to accomplish?
Do you want to:
weight and get Fit?
To Lose Weight and get Fit
Youíll need a
Treadmill, an Exercise Bike and a Rowing Machine. 20 minutes on each as a
circuit. Increasing the resistance at every session or as you see ďfitĒ.
The increase in
resistance is important to induce an anaerobic effect, this is a great way to
lose weight and build fitness.
To Build Muscle Size
Youíll need an
Exercise Bike for a warm up and cool down. A Squat Rack, a Bench, Barbells,
Dumbbells and weights. This is sufficient to build muscle size,
will need to lift heavy weights to induce muscle growth. If youíre lifting
heavy weights you will need someone there to help for those heavy sets.
To Build Strength
Youíll need the
same as above for muscle size, but you could also use a Power Rack with safety
pins. To build strength youíll need to lift very heavy weights
repetitions so safety is of great importance and you will need someone there to
help when going very heavy.
You can always
search the web for a more detailed exercise routine that will suit your goals.
You should also, before starting any exercise program, get the go ahead from
your GP or health professional.
So all youíll
really need to set up a home gym is about 3 to 4 pieces of exercise equipment
with weights. You donít need to spend thousands on a home gym when the basics
will be enough for you to complete your goal.
Should I get New or Used?
Itís not that
important whether the equipment is new or used or refurbished, just make sure
it is of high quality and you can depend on it. Some people prefer new some
used, some people prefer refurbished because it looks new and has a high
quality but isnít as expensive as brand new. It all depends on your personal
thing is that anyone can set up a basic Home Gym to suit your needs, it really
is not that difficult or expensive. If you would like more information on Home
