If you want to take up exercising, having gym equipment at home is a smart move. It’s harder to skip a workout when everything you need is in your house. You might even save money over a gym membership — while putting together a home gym may involve some big costs up front, it will likely be cheaper in the long run.

Below are our picks of the best home gym equipment items per Forbes and online pokies Australia.

Tempo Studio Package

The Tempo Studio is a versatile set that puts an entire weight room, trainer included, into one compact package. The main component is a self-standing touchscreen in which you can queue up classes any time, anywhere. But what really sets it apart is its AI, which tracks your moves via 3D sensors and gives you real-time feedback on your form. There’s also automatic rep counting, weight guidance and personalized training plans that’ll help you make the most out of your workout, as if you were working with a live trainer.

The Tempo Studio is available in three different packages, from the basic Starter set to the weight room-worthy Pro package. To stream workouts, you’ll have to purchase a Tempo membership, too (it’s $39 a month and offers up to six accounts). That said, both the app and the entire Tempo Studio are eligible for a 30-day trial period so you can feel confident about your investment.

TRX All-In-One Suspension Training System

As long as you have a solid interior door, a hook screwed into a stud or a sturdy tree branch, you can execute dozens of different exercises—every one of them tailored to suit your abilities in terms of strength and mobility—using TRX straps.
Danielle Hirt, an NASM-certified personal trainer and RRCA-certified running coach with Formula Running Center says: “TRX straps offer a total body workout for any level. They’re a great foundational piece of equipment because all workouts can be modified. TRX straps are also great for recovery and mobility training, allowing you to use your own body weight to stretch your muscles more than you can on the floor alone.”
Jess Glazer, former celebrity personal trainer and physical education instructor adds that she “is also a huge fan of the TRX home suspension system because it allows you to focus on all body parts and a variety of workouts from cardio and plyometrics to strength and stability.”

ProForm Carbon E7 Elliptical

Ellipticals are a great introductory option for beginners and “good for those with knee, ankle or back issues that find running uncomfortable or painful,” Sklar says. When it comes to choosing the right one, Albert Matheny, R.D., C.S.C.S., co-founder of SoHo Strength Lab, says: Think about what you’ve liked using at the gym, as well as what features you actually used on it. Then try to get the same one, or something as close to it as possible.
The ProForm Carbon E7 moves smoothly and is almost silent, making it ideal for shared spaces, early morning or late night workouts. It’s also foldable and has wheels for easy storage if you’re short on space. Featuring 24 resistance levels and inclines from 0 to 20 degrees, this machine is suitable for beginners but can still offer a challenge as you build strength and endurance. It comes equipped with a 7-inch screen and is compatible with iFit, a service that lets you stream thousands of workouts so you’ll never get bored just like playing games at a real money casino. Just note that the iFit subscription costs an additional $15 per month for individuals or $39 per month for the family plan.

NordicTrack T Series Treadmill

If you have the space, a treadmill can be a great piece of cardio equipment to have at home. “Look for durability above all else,” Sklar advises. “Treadmills take a pounding, and they’re not cheap. Investing in something with strong reviews on longevity with minimal repair will give you a solid return on investment.” Another important thing to consider, if you like to go fast: Check the machine’s speed capacity. “Ability to incline and simulate hills is also a great perk, and fairly standard,” Sklar says.

The NordicTrack T Series is an Amazon bestseller featuring 10% OneTouch incline, belt speeds up to 10 mph and a foldable design for easy storage. Most notable, though, are its smart capabilities. It has a built-in 10-inch touch screen (there’s also the 5-inch screen model, if you want to save a couple hundred bucks) and is compatible with iFit, a service that lets you stream workouts. As mentioned above, an iFit subscription costs extra, but this package includes a free 30-day membership so you (and the fam) can try it out.
