If you are searching for a budget-friendly and easy to use an exercise bike for home use, then this one should be it. We've been using this exercise bike for quite some time now, five times a week, and we are impressed. Not only is it quite compact to store, but it also has a range of workout programmes so you can mix up your workout routine. That and it has four user settings so more than one person can use the bike in your home, while there are 32 resistance levels to offer a sweaty workout.
When in use
On initial setup, you can set a user programme from one to four and input your gender, age, weight and height so it knows who is using the machine. We've used this spin bike in manual mode and tried every one of the programmes. We prefer the programmes as they give structure to our workout and keep us motivated, and it's even better than you can tailor them to suit your needs. By this, we mean that you can input a time or distance, or the number of calories you'd like to burn, and the programme will run until you reach your goal. You can also set the 'load' which is the starting resistance, based on your fitness level or how hard you want to push yourself. This bike automatically ups the resistance for you, though you can change it at any time by turning the flat button on the console. After your workout is finished, the machine will beep to let you know. From here you can either finish or head to manual mode to cool down.
Practising yoga at home? You can't go wrong with the Yoga items: they feature alignment markers so that you know where your hands and feet should be while posing. It's great for those who usually attend a yoga class and rely on help from their instructor when going from one position to another.
An easy (read: fun) way to get your heart rate up, this one is our pick of the best fitness trampolines you can buy. Fitness trampolines are smaller versions of your classic outdoor trampoline and are otherwise known as a trampette.
When in use
This piece of fitness equipment has been popular for quite a while now, and it's easy to see why: jumping on a fitness trampoline is considered moderate to vigorous-intensity exercise. This device is easy to assemble as you only need to attach the non-slip feet on, it has a solid and stable construction that's ideal for aerobic use AND it's super affordable. Just start bouncing!
If it's a running machine you are after, then the treadmill is our top recommendation. Not only does it feature a cushioned deck for protecting your joints when jogging, sprinting or running, but it features a range of pre-set programmes and adjustable incline for simulating uphill running.
When in use
Boasting easy to use buttons and a seven-inch display, this treadmill allows you to adjust speed and incline settings safely, without the need to look down. You can also use this machine for heart rate training, as well as tracking time, pulse, speed, incline, distance and calories burnt. There are 43 workout programs at different intensities for you to enjoy, and a 15 per cent incline (at 15 levels) to really make you work up a sweat. Use the free tablet holder for watching Netflix while working out, or, Kinomap allows you to run stunning routes from all over the world, inside your home.
If you don't have enough room in your home for a home gym (same) then consider a pull up bar. Use this sturdy bar for pull ups, chin ups and push ups, and then pop it away underneath your bed or sofa after use.
