How to create your own at-home gym

It doesn't usually take to many excuses to convince yourself that you can't make it to the gym or fit that work out in, and when winter time comes around it only gets harder. The idea of getting up early or going out later in the day to face the cold on your way to the gym doesn't sound pleasant, so here is your solution, your very own mini gym at home! Of course, you don't want to go out and buy massive exercise machines but there is plenty of small equipment available that you can use to create your own at home workouts.

If you don't know where to start when it comes to buying equipment here is a list of items that will help you get the ball rolling:

  • Kettle belles
  • Resistance bands
  • Exercise ball
  • Dumbbells
  • Aerobic step
  • Jump rope
  • Ab wheel
  • Fittness mat

Here are some top picks for at home gym equipment that won't break your bank account.
