How to create the ideal home gym

Each new year we find ourselves enticed by gym membership, usually because of a special offer, but then a couple of months into the year find that we are still paying and not going, that’s what makes having a home gym so much more practical. Forget having to go out on a cold night after work – which is enough to put anyone off going to the gym, also once you’ve paid for the equipment, it’s yours, and if you integrate resistant excercises into your fitness regime, such as using elastic bands, it really doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

If you are thinking about setting up a home gym the first thing you will need to consider is where you are going to house your gym, closely followed by how much you are going to spend - according to the Daily Telegraph most people will need to consider spending between £1,000-£2,000 on kiting out a home gym.

Here is the Daily Telegraphs essential equipment guide, for the full guide please follow this link:
