If you are considering installing a home gym, you are making a very wise decision. Gym membership can be surprisingly expensive, especially if you find it difficult to get there regularly, and it is money that could be better spent elsewhere. In fact, a home gym is a cheaper option all-round, as you save money on your membership and you’ll find that the essential equipment is hardly expensive. So, what do you choose to start your home gym?
There are many examples of equipment that you could choose, but to begin with you only really need the basics. However, before we go into that, you need to consider the space in which you are putting your gym equipment. Some needs quite a large area, while others don’t demand much space at all, so it is worth planning your gym room before you decide on the equipment. You may have a spare room, or as many people like to do, you could convert the garage, or you might even like to install your equipment outdoors. What do we recommend you begin with?
