Are you struggling to find time to go to the gym? Or do you feel intimidated/uncomfortable at a gym? While there are plenty of gyms around, not everybody likes to work out there. However, that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on your fitness. There is affordable strength training and fitness equipment you can buy to use in your home to remain fit and build your strength.

In this blog post, we will explore various types of strength training equipment that should be an essential part of any home gym.


You would be wrong if you think that dumbbells and kettlebells serve the same purpose. Kettlebells are much more versatile and you can perform a wide range of exercises with a kettlebell. However, you need to learn how to use it properly to avoid getting injured and to get the maximum benefit from kettlebell exercises.

Resistance bands

It’s difficult to understand why professional trainers swear by resistance bands unless you have used them yourself. Resistance bands are cheap and extremely effective. You can use them for a wide range of exercises. Also, they are available in a wide range of styles, lengths as well as resistance levels allowing you to perform almost any kind of exercise.


Think of these as these huge duffel bags that are filled with sand. If you have kids and you like to pick them up or you have carried bags of groceries, these sandbags will feel just like that. The big difference here is that as you start moving the bag, the sand inside shifts which means your forearm and wrist muscles have to work harder.


Let’s begin with the humble dumbbells. Dumbbells are widely available but you need to make sure you buy a reputed brand. There shouldn’t be any issues with the balance or durability. There are also adjustable dumbbells that cost a bit more compared to fixed-weight dumbbells.

Strength Training Equipment


There is a wide range of balls for exercising including slam balls, medicine balls and stability balls. You can use these different types of balls for various strength-building exercises. For instance, medicine balls can be lifted, carried and thrown. Similarly, you can use slam balls for building your speed, strength and power as these are slightly bigger in size compared to medicine balls and they are also heavier. Stability balls are an excellent accessory for bodyweight exercises that help you build your core muscles.


If you think that you have built enough strength, you can use this equipment to test your limits and also enhance them.

While the above is a collection of basic strength-building equipment, you should also research other equipment based on your fitness goals.
