Which gym equipment is right for you?
With so much choice, it can feel baffling trying to prepare your workout space for exercise. However, there are a few factors to bear in mind that may influence your purchasing decisions:
Some people are lucky enough to have a full garage or spare room to dedicate to their home gym. In that case, they’ll want to look for equipment that can stand on its own, ready to be used at any time. Many exercise bikes, elliptical machines, or treadmills are great for this: simply hop on, and away you go. Likewise, complex multi-gyms and heavy barbells can be pushed or stood against the wall, ready to use at any time. There’s no worrying about your workout equipment being an eyesore.
However, whether you live in a smaller apartment, you share your place with family or you have roommates, you may not have much space to work out in. In this instance, a free-standing machine like an exercise bike might be unsuitable for your needs.
Need a space-saving workout solution? Many of the best rowing machines and top treadmills fold up neatly and can be put away when not in use, while resistance bands, dumbbells, or even doorframe pull-up bars can be dismantled and stowed in a cupboard or under a bed when not needed. When it comes to browsing the best cheap gym equipment deals, being smart with your space is essential.
Got cash to splash on fitness gear? Great! You can outfit your home gym with equipment outstripping any local gym chain branch, with the best cardio machines and resistance training equipment you can find. There are still ample opportunities to save on cheap gym equipment deals, as the more expensive gym equipment tends to see the biggest discounts. You could wind up saving $1,000 or even more on a single piece of gym-quality equipment.
But if you’re looking to get fit on a tighter budget, you may need to make smart choices. If you can only buy one or two pieces of fitness kit, make sure you’re buying equipment you enjoy using. Research from the Association for Applied Sports Psychology finds as many as 80% of people who begin an exercise program don’t stick to it, so if you hate running, don’t buy a treadmill. Instead, look for exercises you like to do. Enjoy calisthenics? Get a pull-up bar for under $50. Like rowing? Grab a cheap rowing machine.
Finally, if you’re on a budget, check this page on a regular basis, as we’ll be updating it with the hottest deals we can find as they land.
If you’re looking for a machine to help you lose weight in a smart, sustainable way, you’re unlikely to be buying a weights bench. Instead, you’ll probably look for something like a treadmill you can walk on rather than lounge on the couch, while still enjoying some TV in the evenings. If you’re looking for an at-home, post-COVID alternative to spin classes, our best exercise bikes are worth a look.
Likewise, if you’re looking to build muscle, you’ll likely be filling your online cart with heavy barbells, dumbbells, and resistance bands. However, don’t forget calisthenics – pull-up bars are smart, effective ways to build muscle, using just your body weight, and are often among the best value for money when it comes to cost versus the potential muscle gains it can offer. Pull-ups, especially strict form overhand pull-ups, can activate your forearms, biceps, back muscles, and core, according to research. Our how to do pull-ups guide can tell you more.
