If you have the space for additional cardio equipment in your home gym, you can take a look at an exercise bike, rowing machine or treadmill, depending on what your preference is.
If you are an avid cyclist and already have a nice road bike, the easiest thing you can do is purchase a bike trainer. This allows you to use your current bike as a stationary bike. This doesn’t take up very much space and allows you to train on something you’re already comfortable on. If you are looking for other cycling options, there are a ton of great ones out there such as the Peloton, which is basically the gold standard of exercise bikes. This bike has a high price tag but is worth it. But there are other stationary bikes that can be found for a couple of hundred dollars.
A rowing machine, treadmill or other cardio equipment is a great addition to your home gym if you have space. These take up more space than a stationary bike but if you are going to use it and not just use the equipment as a coat rack, one of these pieces is a good investment for your home gym. A treadmill is likely the most versatile and the one you’ll get the most use out of – whether it’s using it for long runs or just a walk while binging your favorite show.
And last but not least, you don’t want to forget the tunes and some workout gear! Just because you’re working out at home doesn’t you need to opt-out of some comfortable athleisure wear. Also, make sure you have a good sound system – whether it’s an in-home stereo, a great Bluetooth speaker, or personal headphones, you will want something to keep you pumped up while you get your sweat on.
