So you want to work out in a gym and you either don't want to pay those gym membership fees because of your budget or you simply don't like all those other sweaty bodies to contend with. Whatever the reason, you can build your own gym in your home and on a budget as well. Whether you are wanting just to lose weight or you want to do some weight gain for your muscles, having your own gym in your home is going to help you do that.
The first thing you are going to want to do is to take a look at just how much your personal budget can spare to build this gym in your home. Then once you have done that you need to figure out what you want to include in your gym. Do you want cardio equipment like a treadmill or stationary bike, do you want dumbbells and a weight bench? All of this should be considered when you are trying to fit your budget. Remember, you don't have to buy new, consider going with used. You can find a lot of good bargains at garage sales and on Craigslist for gym equipment.
Note: One really great piece of cardio equipment that is portable and costs $10 or less, get this, is a jump rope! So make sure your gym includes at least one of those.
You will need to consider adding some resistance equipment to your gym as well. This has affordable options that are free weights or resistance bands. The bands are convenient and you can take them anywhere, just like your jump rope. So both of these items should be considered a must for your home gym.
You also will need to have something in your gym that gives you some core training. This can be done by getting yourself an exercise ball. This exercise ball can be put together with other pieces of equipment or routines. For instance if you happen to lift your weights while you are standing on the floor which helps your arms legs and shoulders. Add the ball with this and while seated on your ball you can do the same movements while sitting on the ball and this adds your glutes and abs to the routine.
When you use an exercise ball you are creating an unstable environment for your body which is going to force the body to work even harder and this will give your core an incredible workout. This is a pretty good little workout coming from a piece of equipment that just simply had to be inflated in order for you to use as one of your pieces of gym equipment.
