Things you Need for an Ultimate Gym at Home

Working out for a beginner requires some guidelines and help from a gym instructor but ones you get used to various work out techniques, you can save up on your gym expenditure by creating yours in the house. There are different workout equipment on the market, and some are sold at a pocket-friendly price such that you don’t need to drain all your saving to acquire the kits. Therefore if you are planning to start an ultimate gym in your home, here are some of the essential or pocket-friendly workout equipment to buy.

Skipping Rope
This is one of the most versatile workout equipment that can be used for many reasons. A jump rope is great for warming up since it involves the entire body muscles hence preparing for more intense work. It is also useful in the place of a treadmill since it works perfectly in burning calories. It also minimizes its storage space since you can quickly fold it when storing.

A set of kettlebells is another gym equipment that should not miss in your list. First off they are pretty easy to use since they are equipped with a handle for firm grip, and they can be used for different workout movements too. Also, kettlebells focus on the entire body hence helping you tone your arms, core plus the lower body parts. If it is your first time to work out with this device, learn some tips and the best kettlebells to use for a beginner from garage gym builder. Research shows that some kettlebells cost even less than a gym membership.

Dumbbells work just like kettlebells although they are the best for creating resistant when working out. For example, if you want to get the best results when doing your squats or lunges, get a pair of dumbbells. The gym equipment is designed in different sizes and types which also vary in price. For a beginner, as simple dumbbell may cost you even less than 30 dollars, but for those who want the high quality and heavy dumbbells, the price may be a bit high too.

Yoga Mat
You will for sure need a surface to work out at, and a yoga mat is the best choice for a workout surface. Even if your workout room has a carpet, a yoga mat is a must-have item for safety purposes. This is because it protects your joints and muscles while working out on hard surfaces. Also, in the case where you want to work out from the outdoors, a yoga mat will provide a comfortable and clean place to lie down. Buy a yoga mat that is a bit thick than the ones found in the gym for more support when working from the outdoors.

Resistance Bands
This is another piece of gym equipment that is useful and does not require ample storage space. A resistant band is ideal for stretching and toning various parts of the body especially the arms and the thighs.

These are five best items to buy in case you want to start an ultimate gym at home. They don’t require massive storage spaces, and they can also be found at a low price from different outlets.



  1. Great tips Kim! We hope to set up a useful home gym in our next home. I have been doing yoga via Youtube for years now but would like to work some weights back into my routine.

  2. I so agree about resistance bands, Kim! They're even good for travel:)
    Hope you're having a lovely Sunday.

  3. We have an at home gym and definitely dumbbells and a yoga mat is a must for me!

  4. I love this Kim and so far I only have a yoga mat, but I really want to get kettle bells too. Creating a gym at home makes so much sense these days. :)


  5. I have a yoga mat, kettlebell and resistance bands and they are absolutely amazing! However, I live in an apartment so a skipping rope would probably not work out for me haha.


  6. I dream of having a little space to work out in. More so for yoga since I haven't done it in years and would prefer to get back to speed in the comfort and privacy of my own home. You know, less embarrassment hahaha!


  7. totally agree. I have pretty much the same number of item to work out at home. Pretty clothes is needed as well

  8. Thanks for this comprehensive list of things to start a home gym. I’m not sure if I’ll be motivated enough to actually use them at home. But then again I have zero motivation to go the gym. Staying fit is just a challenge I tell you. Have a lovely week!

  9. Resistance bands are a great tool! They can be used in a variety of way. With a yoga mat and a resistance band one is almost one set.


a cupcake for your thoughts!
