Creating a Home Gym in a Small Space

Regardless of whether you belong to a gym or not, having a home gym is always convenient for times when you just can't make it to the gym, you are too lazy to drive there, or if you don't want a gym membership.

The common misconception is that you need a large amount of space to have a home gym. While a large space is ideal, if you don't have the square footage to spare, you can still use what you have to create a decent workout space.

My home gym consists of an elastic exercise band, 5 lb weights, 15 lb weights, a stability ball, and foam roller.

Those items alone allow me to get a full-body workout whenever I want. Now if I had the extra space, like another room to actually build a home gym, here are two home gym machines I would consider just from personal experience and research I have done.


Home gyms for consideration

Total Gym 1100 - These are actually really cool because of their size and what you can do with them. My parents have one and you can get a good workout just using your bodyweight.

Bowflex PR3000 Home Gym - I like the size of this machine, the price seems reasonable, and overall, the reviews were positive.

Do you workout in a small space? What do you include in your home gym?
