The space you have and type of exercise you are doing will help determine your needs.
Here are ideas of gym equipment that will help you get in shape.
Before we begin, you have heard me say this before but I’ll say it again.

Choose to go within and you will finally stick to that exercise routine. It works I promise.
These home gym equipment ideas are geared towards both men and women.
With so many women powerlifting and doing weight training they use a lot of the same equipment as the men.
My daughter is on an Acro and Tumbling team and they lift weights as part of their workout too. I mean they have to I guess to build the strength to lift other athletes

Home Gym Equipment For Women & Men
The Bowflex machine combines the low-impact motion of an elliptical with the calorie-burning power of a stepper.
Great for burning calories while working multiple areas of the body.
A multi-functional power tower that supports vertical knee raise, push-ups, dips as well as pull-ups, which help tone and target your arms, core, shoulders, chest, and back for a stronger upper body.
Love any machine that strengthens the core!
This exercise bike has beginner basics to advanced workouts. For those who live in colder climates, this is a great option when you enjoy bike riding workouts.
Even if your focus is strength training and lifting you still need to stretch your muscles. This mat is perfect on recovery days when you do a yoga workout instead.
Having an adjustable bench will help you keep the proper form during your workout.
If you prefer a stationary weight bench instead this is for you.
7. Slam Balls
Using a slam ball will help condition and define your muscles. A slam ball works your shoulders, triceps, pecs, calves, back, and core.
We love anything that strengthens and defines the core!
A thread mill activates more muscles, which contributes to building more lean muscle mass.
Perfect for runners who are in colder climates or if you like to watch TV while you exercise.
Every home gym needs a good set of dumbells. You can effectively gain muscle even when you train with light weights such as 10-lb. dumbbells.
10. Push Up Bars
Using a push-up bar will enable an extended range of movement during the exercise so you will be able to lower your body much further than a regular push-up.
Olympic bars are heavier and thicker on the ends, which makes them far more stable than Standard Bars.
To keep organized you will definitely need a rack to store your dumbbells.
13. Chin-Up Bar
We have had one of these in our doorway since we bought our home.
A chin-up bar is great to strengthen back, arm, and shoulder muscles. It will improve grip and overall body strength as well.
Adding a kettlebell to your at-home gym helps improve core strength and stability. It also enhances body awareness and coordination.
Perfect to help you build lean muscle.
For men or women who want to achieve their fitness goals working out at home, in the gym, or when traveling, Kettle Gryp is a light-weight, durable, and economical solution.
This adjustable dumbbell supports diverse strength training by changing different weights. The weight adjusts from 5 lb to 25 lb which is very convenient.
Research has shown that free weights help you to get stronger much faster than weight machines.
While heavy lifting, your grip usually fails before your overall strength does due to either fatigue or clammy hands.
Wearing gloves is definitely the way to go when lifting.
Foam rolling is a self-myofascial release (SMR) technique. It can help relieve muscle tightness, soreness, and inflammation, and increase your joint range of motion. Foam rolling can be an effective tool to add to your warm-up or cooldown, before and after exercise.
Even though using this roller can hurt sometimes push through the pain. Your sore muscles will thank you!
I hope this post helped give you home gym equipment ideas to get in shape this year.
Have an amazing day full of Unicorns & Rainbows!
