FAQ: Home Gym Equipment

At present, there are over 25 million Americans who have invested on a home gym equipment to combat daily stressors. This only goes to show that muscle building and aerobic activities are more popular today than ever. If you are planning on setting up your own gym, below are some of the most commonly asked questions on home gym equipment and answers to the questions that you might want to know about:

What features should I look for in a multi-gym?
By definition, a multi-gym is a machine that addresses all areas of the body. Users of this equipment can do multiple exercises, such as walking, cycling or biking, running and weigh lifting. A multi-gym machine is a wise investment most especially if you do not have enough space at home for multiple exercise equipment. When shopping around for a multi-gym, make sure that it is convenient and safe to use,  and durable.

You should keep in mind, however, that if you are buying fitness equipment for a large family or for business, this option may not be very practical mainly because only one person can use the equipment at a time. Thus for those who are planning to buy fitness equipment for a business, a hotel for example, it is most advisable to buy separate treadmills, elliptical exercise machines, or bikes rather than buying a multi-gym equipment so that many people can use the equipment at the same time.

How should I set up my home gym?
You should set up your home gym equipment on a level surface. There should be enough clearance behind, beside, above and in front of the equipment in order to facilitate movement. Since ventilation is important when working out, you must not position any gym equipment in front of vents or air openings. For specific instructions, you may refer to the equipment’s manual.

Is it possible to set up a home gym without having to spend a huge amount of money?

Yes. If you do not have enough funds to purchase brand new home gym equipment, you can find some great bargains for second-hand items. You only have to examine the equipment closely to make sure that there are no loose bolts or screws from previous use. Other than that, you can start off with some inexpensive resistance bands, a kettle ball, an adjustable bench, a set of barbells and/or some weights.

What do I have to consider when purchasing a home gym equipment?
Warranty. Whether you are purchasing a brand new or used home gym equipment, make sure that the product you buy comes with a warranty. A majority of companies offer lifetime warranties for the upholstery of the gym equipment. Others limit their warranties to a year for pads and grips and maybe a bit longer for the bearings. A selected few offer lifetime warranty for everything, from the frame to the cable. To avail of these services, you simply have to get in touch with the company’s customer service. If you bought the equipment second-hand, check with the customer service or the authorized dealer whether the warranty applies.
