Easy and Effective Home Workouts
Many people are under the impression that building a home workout gym is expensive. This is one of the main reasons why they join a health club in their area. They don’t realize that they can use that money to build a simple and effective gym at their home.
Planning is the key to building an exceptional home gym. Don’t make the grave mistake of buying random physical fitness equipment being promoted on television or in magazines. This type of purchasing will lead to acquiring exercise equipment that will not be used. Purchasing useless physical fitness equipment will not help you reach your physical fitness goals.
Keep the following points in mind when you are ready to buy exercise equipment:
-What are your immediate and long-term physical fitness goals?
-How often will you use the equipment?
-What type of shape would you like to be in months from now?
-Will the equipment suit your needs when you get in better shape?
-Does the equipment offer you an opportunity to make periodical changes to your workout?
-Will the equipment help me do effective home workouts?
-How much can you afford to spend?
You are ready to buy your exercise equipment after you answer the questions above. Please keep in mind that you don’t have to spend a ton of money. There are home gyms being marketed for as little as $100.
You should buy equipment that can help you reach your fitness goals. Free weights, resistance bands, and selectorized machines should be considered if you are interested in building or toning your muscles. Treadmills, bikes, and elliptical trainers are ideal if you are interested in stimulating your cardiovascular system.
If you want a full body workout and you have at least $1,000 to spend, you should focus on the following options:
Treadmill – This is the best choice for cardiovascular exercises. It can be used for running, walking, and leg strength training. The treadmill can be adjusted to meet your personal needs.
Titness Balls – Provides suitable options for stretching, toning, and strengthening.
Full Dumbbell Set with Weights – Ideal for light toning, strength training, and building solid muscles. It is less expensive and provides more flexibility for workout sessions.
Resistance Band – The resistance band is great for building solid strength. It can be used with free weights.
Step Bench – Can be used for strength training and cardio workouts.
You should consider the following recommendations if you want a home gym priced at $100 or less:
The following should be considered if you have less than $100 to spend:
-Three dumbbell sizes (e.g. five, ten, and fifteen pounds)
You should buy a fitness ball if you are on a tight budget. The fitness ball offers a variety of exercise options. It is designed to give you an upper and lower body workout. You can get all of this for less than $40.
Please keep in mind that items in your home such as chairs and stairs can be used for effective home workouts.
