When you can’t make it to the gym on a regular basis, a quality home gym is a great way to fit in your workout on your schedule in your home. Selecting the right Home Gym can be overwhelming but if you keep a few key points in mind it can become rather simple.
The first question you have to ask yourself is where it is going in my home. Most home gyms will need at least a seven foot high ceiling and an area to do exercises around the machine. Most Home Gyms are designed to back up to a wall but you will need space to the front and at least one side to utilize all of the available exercises. Making sure the unit you select fits your space is crucial to making sure you get the most out of your new unit.
Types of Exercises Matters
The second question is how many much weight you need and how many exercises do you want. Most Home Gyms come with a standard 150lb weight stack which can be upgraded to 200lbs. This is more than enough for most users as the leg press options also double this amount thru the use of pulleys.
The variety of exercises comes from the lifting stations included in the gym and how many exercises can be completed off of the pulley stations. Most Home Gyms offer up to 40 different exercises which is more than enough for casual or serious users.
The final question is what quality of unit you would like. Any Home Gym can feel smooth at a heavier weight as the force of the heavier weight forces a smoother movement over the pulleys and cables. A quality Home Gym will use quality components and offer a smooth motion even at the lowest of weights which can be very important to you’re the users form and results.
