From treadmills and stationary bikes to free weights, there’s a range of top-of-the-line home gym equipment available to help bring your workouts – and results – to the next level. Here I’ve highlighted the most popular home gym equipment 2023 that can be used within the comfort of your own home.
I am a long-time expert on the Swedish comparison site Prisjakt, where I review the best products in different fitness categories. After analyzing the most popular home fitness tools right now, I can see that many of them are represented on the list.
Here are the most popular home gym equipment 2023:
A treadmill is an exercise machine designed for indoor running or walking. It is the most popular cardio equipment in most gyms, as it provides an efficient and effective way to burn calories, improve cardiovascular health, and strengthen the lower body muscles. Also for home use, treadmills have long been by far the most popular of all training tools.
Treadmills come with various features, such as adjustable incline, speed, and workout programs. A big trend right now is compact treadmills that are easy to store and put under the bed. These generally have a rather weak motor strenght and are therefore mainly intended as walking pads. However, if you go up in price, you can find models that go up to 12 km/h, which is enough for most people to run on.
Checking out the best sellers on major shopping sites like Amazon, it’s clear that the compact treadmills are dominating in popularity right now.
A stationary bike is a piece of cardio equipment that simulates outdoor cycling. It is an excellent choice for low-impact cardio exercise that helps strengthen the lower body muscles, improve cardiovascular health, and burn calories. Stationary bikes come with various features, such as adjustable resistance, speed, and workout programs.
A popular alternative to exercise bikes are spinning bikes, which in most cases provide a much better training experience, more like regular cycling.
Also among stationary/exercise bikes, smaller versions that are easy to store are growing in popularity.
