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.
Extreme fitness programs aren't for everyone. So welcome to the all-new P90—your gateway to getting fit regardless of your age or fitness level! Legendary trainer Tony Horton has now created shorter workouts that are simple, doable, and less extreme than his others, but still just as effective.
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?
