The Best Home Exercise Equipment For People on a Budget

If you are trying to think of a way to outfit your home with decent fitness equipment but don’t have a lot of money to spend, this article should be of some help.  Many people are under the impression that they need to spend hundreds, or even thousands of dollars on expensive gym equipment like weight sets, benches, and a squat rack in order to build muscle.  The truth is that you can actually get the same results without all that expensive gear.  Here are a few of the best ideas.

Getting a good aerobic workout is one of the most important parts of a good workout. If you have even a couple of hundred dollars to spare, get yourself a used home fitness tredmill or a similar piece of equipment such as a stair stepper.  This is the easiest way for most people to burn calories any time of the day or night in their homes.  You can listen to music or watch TV and the time will go by fast.

If you don’t want to get a treadmill, you will have to get a bit more creative if you want to get an aerobic workout at home.  A good way to do it is to get a good jump rope.  Golds Gym equipment sells one of the best ones available, and the weight of the rope can actually be adjusted.  Jumping rope isn’t for everyone though, since it is a very intense exercise and some people find that they just can’t keep the pace up for more than a couple of minutes.

A less intense way to exercise is to get what is called an aerobic step.  They are very affordable, and you can set one up right in your living room if you want.  The best thing to do is to get a DVD that guides you through a series of workouts, and you can choose one that best matches your fitness ability.
