The coronavirus and Covid-19 pandemic saw gyms, fitness classes and sports clubs around the country close for an extended period of time. This encouraged many of us to start working out from home and to implement home workouts into our day to day routine. Sure, as vaccines are being rolled out, fitness facilities are opening back up. But if you’ve found that you enjoy being able to exercise without leaving your own property, you may benefit from some of the equipment outlined below!
Treadmills are one of the most commonly used pieces of equipment in gyms around the country. Why? Well, they allow you to walk, jog or run without having to expose yourself to the elements or harsh weather conditions and temperatures. Instead, you can exercise from an indoor environment. Many of us feel that this is safer and more comfortable. Of course, a treadmill is a pretty large investment to make for your home. So, you may want to consider financing the purchase and paying it back in smaller instalments. Some sellers will offer finance plans for you.

A Static Bike
If you’re a fan of spin class, a static bike in your home could be the ideal purchase for you. The range of static bikes on the market is expansive, ranging from simple and minimalistic bikes to brands such as Peloton, which have screens where you can attend virtual spin classes. The right bike for you will largely depend on your budget. So, read reviews, get others opinions and settle on something that meets your needs!
If you enjoy lifting weights, there are a variety of home weight sets to choose from. For small weights, simply make sure you’re practicing proper technique. For larger weights, you should get some sort of cage or rack for safety. This should ensure that if you drop the weight, it won’t land on you and will be held in place above you.
Pole fitness has taken off in popularity over recent years. Previously a little engaged with activity, there are now pole fitness classes across the country. This form of exercise is a great way to build upper body strength, work on chest and back muscles and improve flexibility. Plus, it’s fun! Now, attending a class once a week or so is great. But if you have your own pole at home, you can practice your conditioning exercises more regularly. This will help you to advance faster! Choose a reliable pole from a reliable manufacturer and ensure that it is installed correctly. You may also want to consider investing in crash mats for a softer landing if you fall.
These, of course, are just a few examples. With the space and money available, you could set up pretty any piece of gym or workout equipment in your home. Make sure to look into options you’re considering fully and consider cost, space and (of the utmost importance) safety before investing.
