Whether you want to lose some weight, get stronger, or improve your overall fitness, home gym workouts are the easiest, cheapest, and most convenient way to achieve your goals. Though it may seem simpler to sign up at a local gym, the reality is that most gym memberships go largely unused. After signing up, paying the expensive joining fees, and being locked into a contract, you will have spent more money than if you bought the basics you need to work out in your own home.
Working out in a home gym means lets you invest only in the equipment you need. This way you can tailor your home gym workouts to suit your lifestyle and fitness goals instead of paying extra at a gym for equipment you will never even use.
Before hopping online and purchasing a complete home gym, it is important to assess your goals. Each piece of fitness equipment is made for a different style of fitness training, so take a look at our list below to see what equipment is best suited for your goals.This list will take you through various home gym workouts that are easy to incorporate into your lifestyle.
Kettlebell workouts are great for full body, functional movements that will help build overall strength. Functional exercises engage multiple muscles to complete the movement, which means that you can target more areas of the body in a shorter amount of time than if you were to exercise each muscle one by one. Kettlebell Swings and Turkish Get-ups are great examples of this functional style of training. Check out this kettlebell set to get started.
If your goal is to improve your cardiovascular health, at home cardio machines are a terrific tool. Running on a treadmill for just 20 minutes a day can drastically improve your overall health. If running is too hard on your knees, a rowing machine is another great option, and if you have back issues an elliptical is the way to go for easy at home cardio.
Similar to kettlebell workouts, dumbbell workouts are great for building muscle and strength. Where they differ is that while kettlebells are great for functional full body movements, dumbbells are best for isolated exercises. If you have a particular muscle you want to work on, especially in your upper body, this adjustable dumbbell set will provide you with the tools you need to reach that muscle.
One of the cheapest at home workouts to do is at home yoga. All you need is a yoga mat and an internet connection to get in a great yoga class in the comfort of your own living room. There are plenty of online yoga videos to choose from, either for free on Youtube or subscription based from online yoga instructors.
From improving your balance to shredding fat, there are plenty of benefits to using a vibration plate that can be achieved in just a few minutes a day. Standing on the vibrating surface activates all of your muscles automatically. This can be used to switch your muscles on and warm up before a workout, or to gain overall strength through daily use. Check out our range of vibration plates for an at-home workout that is quick and easy.
No matter what type of exercise you do, it’s always important to properly warm up before your workout and warm down afterwards. A great way to do this is with some gentle stretching and foam rolling. If you jump into a rigorous workout without warming up you are more likely to injure yourself by straining cold muscles. By rolling your muscles over this foam roller before a workout you will stimulate blood flow, preparing that muscle for movement.
It’s just as important to foam roll after a workout to prevent delayed onset muscle soreness. Massaging your muscles with a roller will help to prevent build up of lactic acid, which is what causes your muscles to hurt after exercising. A hard foam roller with multiple pressure points will give you a deeper massage and better results.
If you are a complete beginner and have no idea what your goals are, start slow with some resistance bands and a skipping rope. These are low-cost pieces of equipment have plenty of online tutorials you can try out to give yourself a feel for the type of training you enjoy.
By choosing the home gym equipment that is right for your lifestyle and fitness goals, you will have a functional workout space in the comfort of your own home that you will actually use.
