Best Home Gym Equipment

We all know the dream of having a personal at home gym. And if that dream is coming true for you, you may be wondering exactly which equipment you should have in your gym. Which pieces of equipment are absolutely essential?

Well, we are here to break it down for you. Here are five pieces of must-have gym equipment. You'll also find out the brand of the infamous apple fitness mat.


Weights are a crucial part of any home gym. They are one of the best ways to improve muscle tone and build strength. But there are so many different types to choose from. 

Well, one place you can start is with a kettlebell.

Kettlebells work for a multitude of strengthening building and toning exercises. If you follow workout videos, you will often find the trainer using one. It's a fantastic piece of workout equipment to have on hand. Be sure to choose a weight size that suits your wants needs.

Resistance Bands

Resistance bands are a great option if you're into strength-building exercises. They are commonly used in physical therapy for this exact reason.

Although resistance bands can be challenging to use at first, the results make it all worthwhile.

Similar to weights, resistance bands come in their own set of strengths. The stronger you are, the more resistance you can handle. If you're looking to add minimal pull to an exercise, a band with lower resistance is the way to go. You will also find resistance bands in many workout videos.

Squat Rack

Now we are getting into one of the pricier items on this list. But if you're set on toning and building your glute muscles, then a squat rack is a perfect addition to your home gym.

It's also great for people who are into lifting.

Sometimes when we're trying to lift heavy weights, it can be intimidating if you don't have a spotter on hand. A squat rack works as a mechanical spotter in times like this - helping to keep you safe and injury-free.

Adjustable Dumbbells

Dumbbells are an essential part of any home workout routine - but what happens when you want to increase the weight? You have to shell out more money for the next size up. But there is a solution for this.

Adjustable dumbbells can switch between several different weights.

If you're looking to keep your home gym compact, adjustable dumbbells are a fantastic option. They save space and money. You can't go wrong.

Large Exercise Mat

And finally, every home gym needs a large exercise mat. They can help protect your flooring, allow you to perform a variety of exercises, and keep you safe from injury.

We recommend our S/36 Mat - aka the infamous apple fitness mat used in their cardio workouts.
