I get it, we don’t all have the luxury, time or money to hit a gym with a range of world class equipment day in and day out. Sometimes we simply can’t be bothered getting dressed, getting in the car, driving to the gym, trying to find a parking spot and trying to find a spot in a packed gym class. Does that sound familiar? But….
THE QUESTION IS, CAN I BUILD A HOME GYM WITHOUT SPENDING A FORTUNE ON EQUIPMENT??
My answer is, YES ABSOLUTELY!!!
➡️Setting a gym up at home doesn’t have to empty your wallet or take up a ton of space.
➡️Plus you get the added benefits of privacy, and convenience and you don’t have to deal with other people hogging the weights or machine.
➡️And don’t worry, don’t ever think that working out at home won’t get results that you are looking for. I have been working out at home for over a decade and have many clients who also are getting amazing results workout out from the comfort of their home! (BELIEVE ME, IT WORKS IF YOU DO THE WORK!)

⚠️Before you do, though, a word of caution: plenty of people have suffered the fate of being seduced into purchasing overly expensive and ultimately faddish fitness equipment for their home and never actually used them, and now they are collecting dust! I don’t want this to be you!!
👉So here are my tips to bring the best of the gym back to your place on a budget (UNDER $250). 👇👇👇
The following items will allow you to create workouts that can be geared to a variety of training goals ✔️General fitness ✔️weight loss ✔️toned muscles ✔️muscle gain ✔️athletic conditioning.
1. SKIPPING ROPE – $8 or less
A skipping rope will give you a killer cardio workout indoors or outdoors in a short amount of time. You’ll work up a sweat faster than you will on the treadmill. (Plus you will save mega $$).
2. YOGA MAT – $20.00
For more than just practicing yoga, a good yoga mat becomes the perfect surface for core workout, stretching etc.
#3. RESISTANCE BAND SET – $35
Resistance bands can give you the biggest bang for your buck when it comes to strength training exercises. Look for a kit containing a minimum of three different bands with resistance ranging from 4 – 75 lbs approx.
#4 DUMBBELLS – $120 (Approximately $1/LBS
I suggest getting three sets of various weights depending on your fitness level (for example 10, 15, 20 lbs). All strength training exercises can be accomplished using dumbbells.
#5. Stability Ball – $30
Besides developing good overall muscle tone for your entire body, the ball provides numerous other benefits that range anywhere from rehabilitating back, hip, and knee injuries to delivering a powerful workout to improve core stability, posture, and muscle balance. The stability call can also be used instead of a weight bench to do certain strength exercises.
When you’re ready to upgrade, you may want to add:

Setting it up is the easy part, but the most important thing is that you actually USE IT!! To keep things fun, train with a friend, get new ideas online, or you can take any of this equipment outdoors when the weather is nice Just keep yourself accountable! You’ve got this.
Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
