I know many of you are avid “home gymers” but even if you are not and you prefer the actual gym, know that a home gym can be super handy! It can be handy on those heavy snow days…. or car less days where a commute to the gym is IMPOSSIBLE … or just lazy days! LOL! I think a simple, little home gym is essential for any avid fitness enthusiast and specially important for you busy bodies who do not have a lot of time or resources to be going in and out of the gym!

Today in my Youtube video, I am sharing the home gym necessities! Essentially, its ALL the basics that you need to get started without having to invest into heavy machinery!

Some of my fave equipment for a home gym include:

  • A sturdy stability ball:

    These come in different sizes so pick one up that is appropriate for your height! Most people fit a 65″ ball!home gym necessities

  • A skipping rope:

    Super cheap investment and just an awesome way of getting cardio in! Check out my Youtube video on how to do the cross here!home gym necessities

  • Dumbbells:

    You can find dumbbells almost any where and every where now! Even the local big box store like Walmart carries them! I would suggest investing in a few pairs (like 5 to 15 lbs) and add more as you get stronger!home gym necessities

  • Kettle Bells:

    Although you can use dumbbells and kettle bells interchangeably for some exercises, there is still a need for kettle bells! Why? Because there is some awesome kettle bell exercises that really cannot be replicated with dumbbells (think a basic kettle bell swing)… if you have a funds grab at least one or two kettle bells!  I would suggest going medium to heavy as most kettle bell exercises are POWER movements that require heavier weights. Best to start off with like a 15, 20 or perhaps a 25 lbs kettle bell and add once you get stronger!home gym necessities

  • Booty Bands:

    …well, DUH! hahaha! Booty bands aka mini pilates bands are great for targeting glute and legs! There is just so many fun exercises you can do with these! They are a cheap investment but totally worth it! Anyone who’s used these know the BUUUUURRRNN…. Let me tell ya, your home gym is just not complete without these things!home gym necessities
