- The best home gym equipment that lets you enjoy great workouts in your house doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive, and we dug up five great deals to prove it.
- Putting together a home gym means you can stop paying that pricey gym membership every month, and your workouts won’t suffer at all if you have the right gear.
- Gyms across the country are beginning now reopening after months of shutdowns due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, but you would still have to be crazy to actually go to one.
Someone who is sick with COVID-19 doesn’t have to cough or sneeze on you in order to infect you. Studies have proven conclusively that you can spread the novel coronavirus by singing or even just by speaking loudly. With that in mind, we’re not sure who in their right mind would start going back to a gym again anytime soon to work out. All that heavy breathing and yelling combined with unavoidable close quarters is a recipe for disaster, but gyms in regions across the country are beginning to reopen as many states ease their coronavirus lockdowns.
If you think going to work out in groups where everyone touches all the machines while huffing and puffing is a good idea, then by all means, go back to the gym. Let’s just hope that if you do catch COVID-19 as a result, you don’t get too sick and end up taking a hospital bed from someone who was being responsible and taking precautions.
The sane, responsible citizens among us will continue to skip the gym for the foreseeable future. Of course, skipping the gym doesn’t have to mean skipping workouts. If you think you can’t afford a home gym, think again because there are some fantastic deals over at Amazon right now on all sorts of exercise equipment. Instead of paying $50 or $60 each month on a gym membership, why not get a motorized treadmill for $279 or a mechanical treadmill for $149? Or how about an exercise bike starting at just $170?
Those deals and more are available right now in Amazon’s exercise and fitness section, and you’ll find five particularly great options down below.
