Space-saving home gym equipment that will get you active Posted On 27 February 2023

You don’t have to live in a mansion to get in a good workout


Lockdowns and coronavirus restrictions saw an explosion in the availability of home-based gym equipment on the market.

Luckily, due to the broad variety available, there are some fantastic pieces of kit you can pick up to start your fitness journey.

If you are limited in the amount of space in your home, but want to get in a daily workout, there are plenty of options you could splash the cash on.


Under desk treadmill


The explosion in working from home has seen many people try to find crafty ways to get their daily exercise in while still completing their responsibilities.

One brilliant way you could achieve this is by combining a light weight, under desk treadmill with a standing desk.

Standing desks have a number of reported benefits such as lowering blood sugar levels, the risk of heart disease and reducing back pain, while adding a small treadmill underneath can create a fantastic environment where you can answer those important emails while completing your daily steps.

Once finished, the treadmill can be simply folded and stored either beneath the desk or in a cupboard.


Yoga and exercise mats


When getting into exercising daily, it can be very easy just to splash the cash on the newest, smartest and shiniest machine on the market, however this is not always necessary.

One of the most important items in your arsenal is a good exercise mat.

This can be rolled out to carry out daily yoga practice or for a full workout.

The benefits of using a mat, rather than exercising on a naked floor is that it reduces the impact on joints and creates a comfortable surface to kneel or lay on.


Fitness cube


When considering exercise equipment for your home, an item which is multi-functional can be a great way of ensuring you can complete a full workout, without tripping over too many items.

A fitness cube is a great option for those who want just a single piece of equipment.

These cubes have different surfaces on all six sides to allow the user to complete different workouts depending on which side they are using, including options to work on cardio, strength, flexibility, endurance and power.
