A lot of the reason that this happens is because of effort – not so much the effort of the exercise, which many people enjoy, but the effort of getting going.  That long trip to the gym can really put you off going.

Which is why home gym equipment s so popular.  But as always when you are choosing equipment that is going to cost money you need to be thinking about how to go about choosing the fitness equipment for your home.

What to Consider

  • Most people have limitations over what fitness equipment they can have in their own home.  Whether this limitation is based on price or on room available doesn’t matter… you need to think what your own limitations are so that you don’t go too mad and buy more than you can!
  • What sort of exercise equipment?  Are you looking for a cardio work out at home?  Maybe you want to do some weight lifting?  Both are very different and require very different equipment, so think about what you need.
  • Reputation.  Quality matters – cheaply made exercise equipment can break easily.  Which means that looking at the reputation of the firm that has made the equipment is an essential part of buying if you don’t want expensive repair bills.  Quality doesn’t have to cost the Earth, just make sure that you are getting value for money.
  • More and more.  One thing people forget is that they will get fitter and stronger with the exercise equipment.  So make sure that it can do the speeds or weights that you will need it to in a years time, not just what you need right now.  You don’t want to replace it just because you got fitter!
