Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many Americans have traded in their gym membership for at-home fitness. While fitness studios and big box gyms generally have an extensive collection of fitness equipment, gadgets, and tools, setting up a home gym is a lot easier—and even less expensive—than you would think. “Creating a workout space in your home can range anywhere from a few hundred dollars up to $20,000,” Dan Bowen, certified personal trainer and owner of Hit Fitness explains to The Doctors.
Felicia Shields, COO of Fitnessmith, a South Florida company that designs custom gym environments, explains that every home workout space should incorporate four key fitness pillars: cardio, strength, functional, and recovery. “Each element is key in a well-rounded wellness routine,” she explains.
But you don't need to spend thousands on a Peloton or Mirror smart home gym to get a great home workout. Whether you have just a little bit of space and a small budget, or a dedicated workout room with limitless funds, there are a few home fitness essentials that will help you achieve all of your fitness goals.
