Best Gym Equipment for 2023:

Starting a fitness journey is a great step towards achieving your health goals, but which gym equipment do you really need? We have compiled a list of gym equipment below that could benefits your workout routine, but recommend speaking to one of our sales consultants for a needs analysis to buy gym equipment that will be best suited to you as an individual.

Let’s start with the basics: Dumbbells

Versatile in nature, dumbbells are a great staple to any workout area, as they provide a wide variety of exercise uses.

Why should you buy dumbbells?
  • Increase Muscle Mass: Dumbbells are an effective tool for building muscle mass and strength. They allow for a greater range of movement than machines and can be used for a variety of exercises.
  • Improve Balance: Using dumbbells helps to improve balance, coordination and stability. This is because the weight is not evenly distributed, which forces your body to adjust its centre of gravity.
  • Target Specific Muscles: Because you can use a variety of angles and exercises with dumbbells, they are ideal for targeting specific muscles.
  • Cost Effective: Dumbbells are a cost-effective option for those looking to build muscle mass and strength at home. They are relatively inexpensive and don’t require a lot of space.

You would most definitely want to add a bench with your dumbbells, to take your workouts even further. Benches will provide the option to perform additional workouts, such as bench presses, tricep dips, chest press and many more

If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, and would like to add cross-fit type workouts into your routine, then adding an Olympic bar with weight plates to your home gym is a good option. This is ideal if your goal is to increase strength and build muscle, as these items will allow you to perform deadlifts, snatches and thrusters.

Combining cardio with your strength workouts will lead to greater variety and prevent you from getting bored with your equipment and routine. We recommend either a treadmill, spinning bike or Rower for this option.

The last product that we highly recommend is an all-in-one home gym for those who are serious about strength training, building muscle and toning their bodies.

Multi-function Smith Machine:

The multi-functional smith machine essentially combines an Olympic bar with a Smith machine. This machine is designed to work with Olympic-style weight plates and can be used for exercises such as squats, bench press, overhead press, curls, rows, and deadlifts. The Smith machine also includes safety features, such as an adjustable barbell height and a spotter platform, to help prevent injuries. Many multi-functional Smith machines also come with extra features, such as pulleys, cable attachments, and adjustable benches.
