1. Buy new & used equipment
Pick and choose the items you want to buy brand new and the ones you’re happy to get second hand. You may decide to save a few bucks and get a set of used dumbbells off Trademe but get a brand new exercise mat.
2. Home gym essentials
Barbell power rack
3. Right space
Whether you decide to dedicate an entire room to your gym or just a section of it, make sure you have enough space to swing a kettlebell!
4. Make it a home gym you’d actually want to use
Once you’ve got all the equipment, you will need to create the environment. Here are a few must haves to make your mates with gym memberships jealous:
Flat screen TV – get fit & catch up on Netflix at the same time!
Sound system – no more mucking around with annoying earbuds!
Mirrors – go on, you know you want them.
Hire a water cooler – nothing beats chilled filtered water, on tap!
