These days, people are choosing to skip the monthly membership at their local gym and are instead getting fit at home. If you are in the market for fitness equipment, here are some of the most common types:

 

Spin Bikes- You probably know them as stationary bikes. These can be found in thousands of gyms and homes across America. These days, a spin bike can measure your speed, distance, time, calories burned, and more. They even come with pre-programmed “routes” to help with your training.

 

Treadmills – A treadmill is one of the most easy to use pieces of exercise equipment. It’s a motorized belt that lets you run, jog, power walk or walk in place. New models will even have computers that measure your mileage, calories burned and so on.

 

Elliptical Trainers –An elliptical trainer is a cross between a ski machine and a stair stepper. This equipment provides a low-impact workout. They are great for cardio and general toning, and are a great option for people who have the space.

 

Recumbent Bikes –These are similar to bikes, but you’re sitting in a reclined position, with the pedals on the same level as your hips. They provide a good workout and are recommended for people who stand or sit straight all day on their job.

 

Rowing Machines –This piece of fitness equipment simulates rowing a small boat. These machines build endurance and provide a great upper body workout perfect for toning and cardio.

 

Other equipment – The above is only the start when it comes to what is available for home gyms. There are countless pieces of equipment that allow for just about every kind of workout you can imagine.

 

The most important thing to remember is that your safety is paramount. Buy equipment that you know how to use, and when you do use it, use it safely. Fitness is pointless if you’re inuring yourself while getting fit!
