We haven’t been able to workout at the gym during the last year because of Covid so we decided to spend the money we normally spend attending a gym on making a home gym for our family. Home gym equipment that works for all of us, regardless of age, was easy to find. There are so many options out there, but we wanted it to be fun and unique while still providing a great workout.
Of course, we have the basic equipment like weights and kettle bells, but we’ve added some more unique equipment that encourages us to try new things and enjoy the process.
We converted our single car garage into a workout space filled with home gym equipment and other fun experience options. Between what we created at home and our outdoor equipment, we no longer feel the need to hit the gym… at least not one outside of our house. Check out what home gym equipment we added to make it fun for the whole family.
Home Gym Equipment for the Whole Family
Air Track Mat
Starzcom’s inflatable air track mat is a professional tumble mat. It ensures safe and comfortable practice and is lightweight and portable.
At 10 feet long, it covers a lot of floor space and allows Athena to do multiple flips back-to-back. I also feel more comfortable during cartwheels and handstands on the mat because of the size.
It’s made from military grade PVC with a double layer rail tape and a drop stitch material so we’re confident that it’s going to last.
Although the air track mat is designed for gymnasts and tumblers, it’s also perfect for adults and kids wanting to do any type of stretching, yoga, and many other general exercises. Even baby Max loves to sit and learn to stand on the mat. It’s great for absorbing impact and reducing the risk of injuries.
If we had to choose one mat for the home gym, it would be the Starzcom Air Track Mat.
STEALTH turns playing games into an amazing core workout. It’s great for both kids and adults.
It’s the world’s first interactive core trainer with Gameplay Technology, which means that you are cleverly led through a dynamic core workout while playing a game of capturing targets and scoring points. The result is a more challenging core workout than the static plank, while your attention is focused on gameplay.
The movement targets a total of 29 different muscles, including your abs, obliques, and lower back by twisting, turning and rotating.
My daughter loves challenging me to the best time on the STEALTH core trainer and she always wins, but we both have fun while training our core.
Sole E25 Elliptical
The Sole E25 Elliptical is my favorite piece of workout equipment.
With 20 levels of incline, the Sole E25 Elliptical provides a challenging workout for all levels, and it’s rated for users up to 350 lbs. so all of my family members can feel safe using it. The heavy duty steel frame is backed with a lifetime warranty and the four rear wheels provide stabilization and eliminate side-to-side motion.
Plus, the foot pedals are designed by physical therapists so the E25 provides unmatched workout function and no impact to your joints.
Athena is a little young to use the Sole E25 Elliptical but with a lifetime warranty, it will be ready when she is.
Avari Conversion II Rower/Recumbent Bike
The Avari Conversion II Rower/Recumbent Bike provides two low-impact cardiovascular workouts in one space-saving machine: cycling and rowing. This magnetic resistance machine delivers a complete workout that can be adjusted to your own intensity. Simply turn the grip-edged, 8-resistance-level dial to adjust your pace without interrupting the smooth, quiet workout.
With the Avari Conversion II Rower/Recumbent Bike, you can track your speed, distance, time, odometer, heart rate, and calories burned.
Since the machine is equipped with an oversized aluminum seat rail/rowing beam that’s engineered for extra durability and strength, you’ll be able to row and ride for the rest of your life.
AirRoll for Tricking and Gymnastics
The Acon AirRoll for Tricking and Gymnastics is great for training flips both forward and backward. It’s also a great way to stretch and work your core. There are plenty of ways to get creative with an air roll.
It’s extremely durable and the perfect size for children or adults.
The really fun part about the AirRoll is that it’s so lightweight that on beautiful days, you can take it outside and continue your workout wherever you’d like. We live really close to a beautiful park. It’s fun bring the AirRoll with us and getting in an additional workout outside.
