How to Build a Home Gym

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

  • Barbells

  • Plates

  • Dumbbells

  • Bench

  • Kettlebells

  • Skipping rope

  • Medicine ball

  • Exercise mat

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!
