If you’re in the market for new workout equipment to better suit your home gym, stop for a second and read this article now! Doing so will save you hours upon hours of researching. One mistake many people make when buying fitness workout equipment is first considering their budget.

I’ve known a couple people who have spent thousands of dollars on fitness workout equipment and then ultimately not end up using it. Well, they used it when they first purchased the equipment. But after getting burnt out, they stopped exercising and let all that fancy fitness workout equipment sit in the dust and go to waste. Not literally to waste, but you get the point. Anything is a waste of money if you don’t use it.

If you want to get that beach body, you don’t need the latest and greatest home gym equipment. Anyone that is looking to make their first purchase in buying weight lifting equipment should always buy used. I don’t care how rich you are, buying used fitness equipment will save you tons of money both short term and long term down the road. Here’s the basics of what you should have in your home gym:

-Adjustable Bench
-Squat rack
-A couple pairs of dumbbells (Can even be adjustable if you can afford it)
-A standard Olympic barbell with about 300lbs of plates.

And that’s about it for the basics. No need to buy that five million dollar Floflex or Joeflex, these are the essentials of a home gym. When looking for used home gym equipment, look in your local newspaper for classifieds. You can even check eBay and Craigslist for constant deals.
