At home workouts are a very popular concept. Why? It allows for individuals to get a workout in without having to drive some where, there are no monthly fees and can help with making no excuses to get into the gym. A large majority of my clients have at home gyms due to convenience or are mothers to a new born. This makes having an at home gym is a great option!
Creating an at home gym does not need to break the bank to get setup. Here is a list of equipment you can put in an empty room or your garage for less than $100.
Depending on what sizes you want it usually cost $1 per pound. Lets say you get two 10lbs and 15lbs. This will cost you $50. Walmart has good pricing on these and sometimes your Facebook Marketplace may have good deals.
You can find these cheap at walmart.com or amazon these are about $8.
I like my clients to own both leg and arm resistance bands. My go to is eBay and Amazon for the resistance bands, these are about $10 each for a whole pack.
Kettlebells are great to have in your home gym because you can do all types of full body exercises with these. I have seen these for a really great price at TJMaxx and Rep Fitness. These are also about $1 per pound.
Here is a sample full body exercise you can do at home with all of the equipment I listed above.
