Home gyms – to build muscle or just to keep in shape


Home gyms come in a variety of shapes and sizes and it's important that you do your due diligence in choosing the best home gym your house. If you have a special room set aside for a gym, then you will be out of fit more equipment into that room but you still need to take into account things like the weight of the home gym and its dimensions. For example, is your ceiling high enough to take the gym? Is your floor strong enough to take a heavy weight stack that some home gyms come with.

For those who need lighter home gyms, Bowflex have created a series of Bowflex home gyms that use an innovative rod system to generate the “weights” you will be “lifting”.  These home gyms are excellent for those people that might not have a floor capable of holding a weight stack  body weight.

For those who can fit a gym with a weight stack there is a huge range to choose from, from basic home gyms to professional machines dedicated to certain body parts.

In the table above you can see the ratings and reviews given to the home gyms that we've reviewed on this site. Also feel free to add your own rating and review at the end of any home gym that we have on the site, and your rating scores will be taken into account in the overall rating that we give each home gym.
