Choosing the Right Home Exercise Machine
Having gear that meets your personal fitness goals right in your own home makes it easier to get the exercise you need.
A home gym can be simple to put together and relatively inexpensive if you know what youíre looking for. But before you buy, "itís important to think about your goals and what you need to achieve them," says Susan M. Joy, MD, director of Womenís Sports Health at Cleveland Clinic. "If you set goals, youíll see results, function better, and be more motivated to exercise," she says. Itís also important to commit to using the equipment youíre planning to buy. "Exercise equipment is expensive, and you donít want yours to end up being an overpriced coat rack," Dr. Joy adds.
