One of the things I struggled in my fitness journey is making my environment conducive for my workout. I have been finding inspiration on Pinterest, searching “at home gyms” but mostly it is not feasible as the arrangements involve wide space and let’s face it, it is unlikely to be feasible. Nevertheless, it is important to note that the biggest benefit of a home gym lies in saving money.
Furthermore, it is very convenient as you may skip the hassle of booking a time slot for the gym and the social distance. Essentially online virtual workouts are truly more accessible from home. You may pause between routines to get a beverage, attend to a child or even sign a delivery. Schedule is never an issue.
Working out from home allows you to wear whatever (without eyes ogling at you) or breathing out without feeling the need to be mindful of my surroundings. The space is yours and there is no fear about bending over and feeling exposed in your yoga class. There’s no body shaming or humiliation in the privacy of your own space.
Below are some of the best fitness buys that you may incorporate into your home to kickstart your new healthier lifestyle .

I am loving my red Huawei Band 4 Pro because it is very light and the battery lasts long. My needs for a fitness tracker is simply for me to monitor my daily steps and my heart rate when exercising. There are plenty of fitness watches/trackers but I like the thin aesthetic and do not hurt my wrist when using it prolonged. On top of it all, it is affordable and the band can be removed easily to charge it using a charger head instead of having a separate charger like IOS or Samsung smart watches. The lifespan of the battery is still good despite me using it for almost five years and it’s waterproof as well!
It has strong suction with 2 Suction Cups which enables users to workout on their abdominal easily. The two-row support rods provide greater heel force and double efficiency.

Transport wheels help you easily move this cycle machine.
While setting up a home gym has high costs upfront, there is the potential to save money from your monthly gym membership and transport costs in the long run. In fact, gym memberships may run from $175 monthly (Fitness First for 18-month membership) which will eventually burn a hole in your pocket over time. I am in the midst of carving out space in the room for the stationary cycling bike before the purchase. After all, with the presence of the equipment in the house, you are bound to work out as and when you are free at home.
