Review of Home Gym Equipment

Home Gym Equipment

A Balanced Home Gym

When establishing a home gym, it's important to achieve a balance between cardio-aerobic machines and strength-training or resistance equipment.

Cardiovascular Fitness Equipment

Cardio-aerobic training equipment raises heart-rate and exercises the major muscles in a rhythmical way. Cardio improves heart and respiratory functions, and burns a higher number of calories for possible weight reduction, as well as better heart health. Popular cardio fitness home-gym machines include:

- Exercise bike
- Stairstepper or stairclimber
- Elliptical trainer
- Rowing machine
- Treadmill

Strength Training (Resistance) Equipment

Resistance equipment tones and shapes the body, and builds specific muscles (eg. ab muscles) that support muscle-groups (eg. back muscles) involved in aerobic exercises and reduces risk of injury. Strength training also improves muscle-to-fat ratio, which raises resting metabolic rate for increased weight loss. Popular strength training or restance equipment includes the following:

- Home Gyms (eg. BandFlex®, BowFlex®)
- Free Weights (hand weights, dumbells)
- Weight Bench
- Exercise or Resistance Bands
- Medicine or Swiss Exercise Ball
- Exercise Mats

Home Gym Equipment and Weight Control

Home Gym Equipment machines improve health and fitness, build muscle tissue, and develop a leaner body shape. They also help to raise metabolism and may also help to develop a flat stomach. To lose fat tissue, and reduce weight, workouts using Home Gym Equipment machines need to be combined with a calorie-controlled diet. Because unless you create a calorie deficit, you can't burn fat and therefore lose weight.
