A home gym can include anything from expensive electrical equipment to a stripped-down, just-the-basics approach.

Make sure your home gym is something you’re actually going to use. It’s potentially a considerable outlay in time, money and space.

An early step in planning should be to contact a professional fitness trainer. Video calling allows you to discuss your options without the need to go face-to-face. Pro advice is important because a trainer can help you outline your goals, direct you to the most effective equipment for your purposes and design a series of exercises to meet your needs.
