Working out while staying in

11-01-2017 news guest post home

Burgers, french fries, sandwiches, milkshakes. With so many temptations around us, it’s no wonder why so many people choose to work out more intensely than in the past. Some prefer to run, do yoga, dancing or spinning classes, while others find the idea of working out at home more attractive.

For those people, building a cozy yet practical (and affordable) gym room in their own house is the ultimate dream - imagine the amount of money you could save when avoiding gym memberships! Plus, when you have a gym in your house there are literally no excuses. 

Here are our favourite equipment to invest on:



Although spinning is a workout we love to hate, we must admit that it does miracles to the body - especially for women who want to work on their curves. An airbike, therefore, is a necessary equipment that anyone interested in working out should own; simply turn the music on, choose motivating, uplifting songs and start your routine.

Pilates ball


Easy to use and versatile, gym balls can be used with Pilates exercises, as well as for TRX and Crossfit routines. A good balance is required - so maybe you can start working on that!

Rowing machine


An ultimate beast when it comes to working out, the rowing machine helps in toning as well as cardio. It’s also a fantastic piece of equipment for losing weight, not to mention it is quite fun, too!


As an all-time classic equipment, the treadmill's purpose is to build up your cardio as well as help you maintain an excellent body. Our tip: invest on a treadmill with a digital monitor and built-in workouts that will help you stay on track.

Resistance Bands


Another one versatile piece of equipment that can be used for a variety of workout routines, the resistance band is possibly the most affordable yet most useful equipment of all - not to mention they’re easy to store!
