6 Affordable Home Gym Ideas

by Shea Homes on July 18, 2017

By Jesse Silkoff

A home gym may be great for your fitness routine, but it can be a real drain on your wallet. A dumbbell and plate weight set costs between $300 to $1000 alone, plus another $100 or so for a weight bench. Want to add cardio to your workout? Plan on factoring in another $300 to $5000 for a treadmill. However, your body is generally pretty ignorant of your financial situation—and it needs to be worked out regardless of what’s on your bank statement. Having a gym at home makes the whole process that much simpler: no drive to make, no bag to pack, no communal showers to negotiate.

At-Home Gym

But exercising at home doesn’t need to be a luxury reserved exclusively for those with a lot of expendable cash. With some workout smarts, you can have the whole thing set up in a matter of weeks—without emptying out your kid’s college fund first. Here are some of the best tips we’ve seen from practical-minded fitness addicts for a home workout station that’s affordable enough for almost any financial situation. [read more…]
