When designing and setting up home gyms, convenience should be a key
factor. Think about the reasons why you enjoy going to the
gym. In most cases, all the exercise equipment you need is right at
hand. You have easy access to weights if you want to focus your
workout on building strength, but you can just as easily hop on the
cardiovascular equipment if that strikes your fancy. Your goal, when
building a gym in your home, is to replicate that convenience. If
your gym is not easy and convenient to use, chances are you won't use
it! And while you might not be able to fit tons of exercise

Or you may want to pull out all the stops and purchase equipment such as exercise bicycles, weight benches, and treadmills.

Each home gym model features the ability to do a different set of exercises, and offers a strength building workout for the entire body. As the name implies, multi-station home gyms enable more than one person to work out at once.
Look for equipment that has a natural resistance feel and uses weight racks rather than relying on bands or bows. A good machine should have at least 150 to 200 pounds of weight available. Good quality cables and pulleys are important to ensuring longevity. Finally, look for a gym that has ergonomic features. The location and shape of the pad, pop pin and pivot point should feel comfortable and natural.
Most home gyms enable you to perform twenty to thirty different exercises, but the lower-end gyms often require adjustments and cable rearrangements between sets. Quality home gyms usually have a bench press station, a cable station, an ab crunch station, low and high pulley stations, a leg extension and curling station, and a leg press station. Each station can be used for several different exercises.
