The prospect of a healthier lifestyle, increased energy, and more fit body may be enough to motivate anyone. Unfortunately, there is one problem with this, the myriad of complex and confusing fitness equipment. Equipment can come in many shapes and sizes, and a general guideline can streamline and simplify the process.

  • Free Weights


  • Racks


  • Cable Machines


  • Benches


  • Hybrid Equipment


The easiest place to start is with the free weights. These are the most recognizable of all the traditional training equipment that can be found in home and professional gyms. These are the barbells and dumbbells that have become synonymous with the fitness world. What are they good for? Absolutely everything. These weights aren't just for huge arms and well-defined biceps. They can be used to slim down waists, burn calories, and tone muscles. Racks can work with, or independently from free weights. They are the various cages that are used to place weights upon, stabilize the people lifting the weights, or perfect form. Benches work similarly to the racks and are in place to perform movements with free weights in new positions and at new angles.

Cable machines are now crowding up garages and gyms around the world. These complex looking behemoths are a great place for those new to exercising to begin at. They offer a low-impact, relatively safe alternative to lifting free weights. The downside? Sometimes they just don't make sense unless careful instruction is given. It is important to ask a professional and read instructions carefully before use.

Other Types of Fitness Equipment:
  • Yoga Mats


  • Yoga Blocks


  • Kettleballs


  • Head Harness


  • Stability Ball


  • Medicine Ball


While these are not all new pieces of fitness equipment, they are seen in fewer gyms than the traditional weights and machines. Many of these revolve around core training, or a focus on the core muscles such as the abdomen and back. Yoga is now one of the most participated in exercise activities around the world. Even though the equipment is minimal, a good mat and yoga block are most likely going to be a necessity.

While the idea of all this fitness equipment may be daunting, it is important to remember that they are there to help people become more fit than ever. It is important to stay hydrated, be patient, and start working out on all the amazing exercise equipment out there.
