Home Gym Equipment - Home gyms are compact exercise machines designed to perform as many exercises in the smallest footprint possible. Home gyms provide resistance to various muscle groups of the body through a system of pulley wheels, cables and either weight stacks or weight plates. Smaller home gyms are more affordable with a more economical price point than the larger home gyms and will include a few basic exercises such as a lat pulldown, chest press, butterfly and a leg extension and leg curl. Marcy, Impex, Valor Fitness and Body Solid all make great entry level home gyms ideal for beginners and those short on space. For the serious home gym fanatic or where multiple people will be using the machine simultaneously, Ironcompany provides a number of multi-weight stack home gyms. At a glance, you’ll notice that the larger home gyms provide many different workout stations that the smaller home gyms don’t. The leg press station is a good example of this and is included on select home gyms by Body Solid, Yukon Fitness and BodyCraft. An adjustable cable column as is included on the BodyCraft X4 allows users to attach many different types of cable attachments for upper and lower body exercises. Wood choppers, single handle lat rows and hip adductors and abductors are popular adjustable cable column exercises.
What is the best home gym to buy? Budget, fitness goals and available space are the top three determining factors when purchasing a new home gym and the importance of each can vary greatly from person to person. Some people prefer to purchase a home gym that they can grow into. Consider weight stack sizes, number of exercises that can be performed, who will be using the machine, etc.. And make sure that once you’ve picked a home gym you like that the space can accommodate not only the machine but will have enough room around it for exercising without hitting walls or other objects.
