No one is judging you for wanting to set-up a home gym. You may not have a gym in your locality or the ones available are too expensive. Maybe you just like working out in your time and pace. All plausible reasons.
Unless you are a gym buff though, you may not be aware of all the options available for a home gym. And because I am Indian, I really only seek cheap home gym equipment (below Rs. 5000). So that’s the idea behind this article, here we go….

2. Yoga Mat
3. Something For Your Abs
Hey hey now. Nothing sexier than a flat stomach. Doesn’t matter if man or woman. There are a bunch of cheap options for abs exercises, so pick your elixir (get it?), I would recommend a ab cruncher though. INR 1500 (Approx)
4. Pull-up Bar
5. Exercise Bands
You can use exercise bands for a number of different work outs and they are fairly cheap. Strengthening you wrist, expanding your chest, uhhh something with legs….the world is your oyster. About 1000 bucks.
6. Gym Bench
7. Weighing Scale
It just occurred to me, you may want to set up a home gym because you are too embarrassed to go to a public gym. Well, more power to you in that case, self-improvement is a worthy goal and I wish you luck. Get a weighing scale to track your progress. About 800 bucks.
8. Gym Ball
9. Jump Rope
Because why not. It’s the easiest home exercise and kind of fun. Below Rs. 500.
10. Mirrors, Music, DVD’s etc.
My biggest complain with home gyming is that it can get quite boring. So spice things up with some music, educational DVD’s and mirrors. Price you probably already know.
Well, these should be enough to get you in shape and you can get all of these for about Rs.10000. If you have the budget though, go for something posh like treadmills or some fancy Home Gym Machine. In either case, no more excuses for being out of shape.
