Gym memberships are expensive, but even worse than that, they require you to actually leave the house, which I think we can all agree is awful. That’s why so many people opt to work out at home, and why knowing what the best home gym equipment is so important. There’s no feeling embarrassed about your 5-pound weights while someone does curls with 50-pound weights, no waiting in line for your favorite machines, and best of all, no commute. But if you think the only people building a home gym are rich, that’s where you’re wrong.
That’s why we put together this list of some of the best home gym equipment to inspire you to build your own. All you need is a little extra room or some storage space to squirrel it all away when you’re done sweating it out and boom—bye-bye gym membership.
If you’re going to work out at home, you’ll want to track your progress, and that’s how Fitbit can help. The Versa has 15+ exercise modes, heart rate tracking, and bluetooth capabilities.
