If you do a search for "Home Gyms" on line, you'll get inundated with various brands, models, and latest promotions. With so many choices, how do you narrow these selections down to a more manageable list?

Firstly, we'll guide you in what to look for when shopping for a home gym. A helpful outline of specific things to keep an eye out for. And secondly a good starting point for your search through review articles that we have done on a number of selections.

We're guessing that your two most important factors are the cost and the amount of space that a unit will occupy. Choosing a price range will considerably narrow down your search and is the first step in making your decision.

You'll need to think about the types of expercises that you want your home gym to include. If you are a seasoned weight lifter, you may have a non-negotiable requirement of lying on a bench press than a seated front press. You may feel that a leg extension and/or a leg curl facility is not necessary. If you don't know, it doesn't really matter. The majority of mulit-gym systems offer the same classic exercises. It's just something that is good to consider, especially if you are looking to do specific exercises.

Your next decision is whether you want a weight stack or free weight system...

For example, a free weight system involves adding and removing weight plates to a weight bar. The bar will be fixed between two vertical sliders so that it can only move up and down, typically called a Smith machine. A weight stack uses a pin to select the amount of weight, usually in 10lb increments. The free weight system is traditionally designed for serious and experienced weight lifters and the weight stack is what is found on most, conventional, in home multi-gyms.

What's the cost of a home gym?

Like any consumer product, prices vary depending on the model, make, quality, etc...

Pricing starts at about $250.00. Mid range pricing goes anywhere from $500.00 to $1500.00. If this sounds too expensive, we suggest that you think about this more closely before continuing. More than this and you're getting into the commercial grade machines, which are aimed at serious weight trainers, commercial gyms, or beginners with a lot of money!

The biggest obstacle when buying a home gym is the endless number of different brands and models to choose from. It's a virtually impossible errand to research and asses each one to come to some sort of informed decision.

We've included a shortlist of home gymes that you can use as a starting point. This list is by no means the entire list of home gyms on the market, but definitely a good start that include and meet the criteria that we have listed above. They are all manufactured by well-established and reputable fitness companies. Most importantly, they all include excellent warranties and score highly on independent consuler reviews...

So let's get started!
