As a Charlotte Personal Trainer – with a women’s only studio! – one of the most frequently asked questions we are currently getting is, “What do I need for my home gym?”

That all depends on how much you want to spend.  We’ve made this list of best buys in ascending order of price.

😁

All of these take up minimal space and give you a lot of versatility. Ours fits in the linen closet.

😁

For contrast: a decent home treadmill will cost at least $800, and a Peleton bike will cost $2,000 + monthly membership.

➡️ Listed in increasing order of price:

1.True 180 home kit – included for any active member!

2. Stability ball – $25

3. Foam roller – $15+

4. Adjustable dumbbell set (or, for fixed dumbbells 15-20-25 or 20-25-30) – $2-3/pound

5. Kettlebell (12 and/or 16kilo, 20-24kilo) – $4-5/kilo

6. 12” step – $125

7. Suspension trainer (TRX are very nice, but also $2-400, and there are other options available for closer to $100 that are totally fine for home use) – $100-400

Odds and ends:

1. (Need extra band resistance?) 1” super band (our kit includes 1/2”, and you might need more resistance) – $20

2. (Need help anchoring your band or suspension trainer/TRX to a door?) door anchors

3.  (Want a more comfortable grip for bands?) handle + clip to attach

4.  (Do your knees need something more comfortable than your couch cushions?) Thera-Band

Happy Fitness!
