Want to stay fit, but leaving the house just for the gym is a hassle? Here are 5 home gym equipment every homebody girl needs!

I like to stay fit, but at the core of my heart, I am lazy and don’t like leaving my house. For the last few months, I have been complaining about feeling lethargic and unmotivated to go for evening walks. My sole reasoning has been the pollution outside and to change clothes.

My friends suggested I join a gym and work out at least three times a week. Again, the problem remains! I do not want to leave my house. I want to wear my comfortable clothes and sweat them out and bathe in the comfort of my home instead of queuing at the gym washroom.

Which meant there was only one option left for me; get my home gym equipment. Now, choosing a home gym equipment is not easy! After searching for weeks, here are 5 equipment I have keyed on!

Before we jump to the list, remember these points when you decide to purchase your device.

Things to remember before buying home gym equipment

  • Space – gym equipment can mean anything and can come in any shape and size! If you plan to buy a treadmill, you must have the space to put it in your home. Trust me on this, don’t overestimate your home capacity.
  • Maintenance – depending on the equipment you are keen on, a punching bag is different from a functional trainer! You have known how much time you have to spare on their maintenance. Equipment is a lifetime product.
  • Purpose – Do you want to gain muscle strength or core strength, do you want to lose weight or gain muscle weight, or do you want to indulge in the daily workout to feel active? Rethink your purpose before clicking on that buy button!
  • Budget – Gym equipment is meant for lifetime use, so their prices can differ from brand to brand and model to model. It is an investment, so make sure you are aware of what you need for your body and not your heart.
