Five Point Capital, Fitness Equipments You Need For Your Own Home Gym
Do you dream of having that perfect well-toned body, but you don't have the
time or motivation to go to the nearest fitness center? If that's the case,
why not consider buying some fitness equipments and converting your house
into a gym?
Setting up a gym at your own home is easy to accomplish. No need to buy
every fitness equipment you can get your hands on, as you'll spend more than
it's necessary and you won't have space at home for all those fitness
The first thing you should do is find out what fitness equipments you need
for your personal gym. Here are some fitness equipment suggestions to get
- Dumbbell set: most come in 5 lbs, 8 lbs, and 12 lbs weight size. Make sure
to pick a pair that has rubber handle grip. A good quality dumbbell should
be inexpensive, should not roll away when placed down on the floor and
should come with its own rack.
- Barbell set: this set often comes included with the dumbbells and also
comes in different weight levels. Barbells are a good addition to dumbbells
because as you get stronger from lifting dumbbells you want to progress on
to lifting the heavier barbells to give your body a different workout.
Barbells work various parts of your body such as the upper- and the
mid-sections. Barbells can also increase your body stamina.
- Steps: steps are available in different height levels. They provide good
aerobics and muscle-strengthening workout.
- Exercise balls. they help improve your balance and you body core strength.
Exercise balls are widely used for abdominal workouts. For intermediate
users the exercise ball can be used together with a weight bench to workout
the stabilizer muscles while doing bench presses. Exercise balls can also be
used for pushups, back extensions and lower body exercises.
- Weight lifting glove set: it helps protect your hands during weight
training. It helps prevent swollen hands and rough calluses. A solid pair of
weight lifting gloves is made from fabric that is comfortable and also
allows sweat from the hand to evaporate so that the weights are less likely
to slip out of your hands while weight training.
- Ankle weights: they are considered one of the cheaper fitness equipment.
Ankle weights are commonly used for body toning and muscular endurance
training so as to prevent muscle injury in the lower region.
- Exercise mat: it can be used for floor workouts. Try not to workout on
your house carpet in case you slip and injure yourself. Make sure that you
select a no-slip mat.
Having a gym with these fitness equipments in your house is much more
economical and you'll now have all the time in the world for workout
