Are you building your own home gym? The convenience and privacy of having a gym inside your home can’t be beat. And while creating a top-notch workout setting will take some financial investment up front, you’ll save money on a gym membership in the long run.
To outfit your space, check out our home gym guide — organized by how much space you have and the size of your budget.
Working with no more than your guest bedroom? It might seem tiny. But with the right equipment, there’s still a lot you can do.
Bodyweight exercises are going to be your best friend in a small space. To up the burn, consider purchasing products such as:
Equipment like resistance bands or a plyometrics box will serve as helpful accessories to take bodyweight exercises to the next level.
If you have a medium-sized space for a home gym (such as your garage), you’ll likely have room for one larger item — a treadmill or an indoor bike — and multiple smaller items, like the products listed above. Or opt to buy accessories for your “statement piece,” like a dumbbell holder for an indoor bike, that allow you to perform additional exercises using a single piece of equipment.
If you want to set up a space for lifting weights, you’ll need:
If you have a full basement or other gym space, you’ll be able to purchase larger items that wouldn’t fit in a smaller space. We recommend items including:
Use the Versaclimber and Body-Solid Home Gym G5S for a true total body workout that targets all major muscle groups. TrueForm treadmills are an affordable, high-quality solution that work well for any skill level. And an indoor bike such as the Stages SC2 will round out your home gym with a low-impact cardio and strength option.
On a budget? Good news: You can design an impressive home gym for $100-$300. Pick and choose from the following items:
$300 may not seem like enough to create a home gym. But with a little creativity, there are still plenty of exercises you can do with smaller products. To begin with, pick the items with the most versatility. Over time, you may be able to save up and purchase additional equipment for your gym.
If your price range for a home gym is $500-$1,000, this will allow you to invest in a few larger items that offer versatile ways to tone. We recommend:
A body dip station sets the stage for the ideal upper-body workout, targeting your shoulders, delts, and triceps. Round out your home gym with the easy-install Adapt Cable Trainer or a leg curl machine to define and strengthen the muscle groups in your lower body.
If you’re willing and able to spend over $1,000 on a home gym, this section is for you. Outfit your gym in style with products including:
The WaterRower Classic Rowing Machine uses water as resistance to provide a full-body workout that’s effective, accurate, and quiet.
With a home gym full of items like these, you’ll never even miss your local fitness chain.
Finding the money and space to create a home gym might feel like a daunting prospect. But no matter how much square footage you have or how much $ you’re looking to spend, there’s equipment out there for you.
