Home gym equipment

Today, home training has gained unprecedented popularity. Quarantine has forced us to change our views on safety and learn to abstract to the new conditions. So in this article we will tell you how to set up a gym at home and what equipment you need to buy.

Choosing the space

First of all, you need to decide on the room in which you will exercise. It is better to think in advance about the square footage of space allocated for training. It is very important that this place can be ventilated. It is also undesirable that there were near sharp and breaking objects, they can break or cause injuries.


Firstly, it is better to plan in advance for what purposes you need exercise equipment and sports equipment: for example, for strength weights and dumbbells can be considered, and for yoga — a mat and a ball.

Second, when selecting equipment, you should also consider the room in which you train. Ideally, if under the gym can be allocated a separate room. Then you can buy different machines for different loads, and not to worry about the fact that the room is almost no free space. If, however, you are planning to dedicate a certain part of the room for sports, then you need to choose a more compact equipment and not for all types of weights.

Equipment for different types of training

The modern market for sporting goods provides a huge selection of equipment.
