How to create a home gym that’s cheaper than annual gym membership

Posted Dec 07 2013 3:00am


I love my gym. It’s just 5 minutes from home, so I have no excuses not to go. It’s a ladies only gym, so I don’t feel too self conscious rolling up at 7am in the morning with bed hair, plus they have a good range of classes and equipment, although some better, heavier weights would be good! Another good point is it’s affordability – my membership is £27 a month or £324 a year, a lot less than some other gyms I know of. 

Another reason I love my gym membership is because we live in a little one bedroom flat and the option of having any kind of home fitness equipment is just not happening – don’t get me started on the fold away rowing machine James bought that I had to hide behind a screen in the living room for 4 years! If we moved to a bigger home, it’s my dream of having a garage converted into a small home gym. That got me thinking, could you create a decent home gym for less cost that an annual membership. Let’s see!

  • Fitness Mat –  £20
  • Kettlebells – £40 (for 3 different weights)
  • Power bag – £50
  • Stability ball – £15
  • Medicine ball – £63 (for a rack) 
  • Skipping rope – £10
  • Hula Hoop – £30
= £228

That is just where I would get started (all prices are averages based on what I could find on ) I think that range of equipment would enable you to perform workouts such as these:

  • from Muscle and Fitness
  • (don’t be put off ladies, we can workout like men too!)
  • from Greatest
  • from Daily Motion

Would you be tempted to trade in your gym membership and build a home gym?
