Best Exercise Equipment For Workout Routines
Best Exercise Equipment For Home Workout RoutinesThe best exercise equipment depends on several factors: your workout routines likes and dislikes, your weight loss goals, the amount of space you have available, and how much money you have to invest.
I've purchased a few workout machines, I wouldn't say they are necessarily the best exercise equipment on the market today, but I've used specific excercise equipment and gotten great results. So here's my opinion on the best exercise machines for your home workout routines or wherever you choose to set up your personal gym, in your office or other designated workout space.
Treadmills- Best Exercise Equipment Or Not?If this is the first time that you have decided to seriously try to lose weight, and you're more into fitness equipment than exercise dvds, you may be looking to purchase some equipment for your workout space. And it's important to you that you find the best exercise equipment for your money and something that will give you results. Below are a few of the most popular choices, as well as the ones that I consider to be the best exercise equipment to invest money in.
The first piece of equipment is actually one that I have never personally owned, the treadmill. I've wanted one every since I can remember, but because I want a really good one, and they cost thousands, I'm yet to get one. But I will.The treadmill is the most well-known piece of exercise equipment on the market.
What I like about them is they come in different styles. For example you can get a manual one or an electronic one. You can get one that folds and saves space, or you can get a gym sized one with a monitor.
They also come in a variety of widths and sizes, but along with the large width and size, comes the larger price. Now, you can go online and find a decent treadmill on flex pay at places like QVC or HSN, so if it's something you really want, and can afford, go for it. A treadmill is definitely a good investment, in my opinion.
EllipticalsThe Second best piece of equipment is the elliptical machine. My sister has one and she absolutely loves hers. You can get a total body workout from one machine and you will be able to work your upper and lower body.
Exercise BikesThird, is the exercise bike. I actually grew up with one of these in the house. My mom loved working out and the exercise bike was her equipment of choice. Like an elliptical machine, there are a tone of exercise bikes to choose from.
The good thing is you can usually test them at the local sports store and actually see how big it is to know if it will fit in your workout space properly. Again, you can get a good upper and lower body workout. Here again, because of the range of options, there also are a range of price tags.
TrampolineLastly, you may want to consider a trampoline. Before I purchased mine, years ago, I asked a coworker (a very fit nutritionist) what she thought about trampolines for home workout routines. She was so enthusiastic that I went out and bought one. Mine is small and fits basically anywhere. These mini trampolines are designed specifically for exercises and indoor use. They're also very affordable. At the time I purchased mine it was only about $25. Trampolines are a very low risk investment.
Pilates Home GymI saw the Pilates Home Gym on the Home Shopping Network and fell in love with it. I was able to get it on flex payments. In all I paid around $350 I believe. It was well worth the investment. The variety of workouts that I was able to do was awesome and the machine is so compact that it hardly took up any space. I did see weight loss after about a month of using this machine 3-5 times per week 20-30 minutes at a time.
To conclude my opinion of the best exercise equipment...Some of the mentioned equipment may be out of your price range or may even be to large for your workout space. You may consider some smaller equipment for workout routines such as: Exercise Balls, Resistance Bands & Weight Sets.
When it comes to buying exercise equipment for yourself, you have unlimited options- money and space aside. Shop around online or at your local sporting goods store. If you are on a budget, you may want to look into buying used exercise equipment for your workout routines.
People purchase used all the time. I recently sold some exercise equipment on Craigslist. Other places to look are auction websites, thrift stores, and at garage sales.
Whatever you choose, select equipment that you know you will enjoy, but more important that you will use. You don't want to invest a large sum of money into something only for it to become a very expensive coat rack (smile).
