For some, working out is just a hobby. For others, the iron can provide therapy. An opportunity too escape and forget about the stressors of daily life for a while. A place to challenge yourself and reap the benefits of your hard work.
Which is why when the world went into lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic, people from all walks of life scrambled to build home gyms. With prices skyrocketing as people price gouged, line ups wrapped around the block at local equipment stores. It even became difficult to find resistance bands on Amazon or Craigslist.
Even post lockdown, we have noticed more and more people have chosen to continue training out of the comfort of their own home rather than signing up at their local gym. Regardless we believe everyone can benefit from having the basics accessible to them without breaking the bank. Which is why we made a list of the best options we could find including some of our personal favourites.
