I want my own home gym. Where should I start?

For several reasons, a lot of people don´t like gyms. It doesn´t mean that they don´t like to work out.

With a few items, we can build a better body, at home 🙂

The list is as short as five.

1.- Mirror.

The bigger, the better. Your selfies will also look better but the real reason is that you need it to correct your posture, watch what are you doing, and how are you doing it.

2.- Stability ball.

Cheaper than a bench, also it allows you to perform hundreds of exercises and stretches. Are you worried about your core? The answer is spherical 🙂

3.- Resistance bands.

There are tons of brands. Select a proper resistance for you and get ready to sweat!

4.- Two dumbbell bars.

The number is important: two (2). Why? Because you will need both for a lot of exercises. More versatile than a single long bar, they will become your better friends 🙂 Also, check the bar´s diameter.

5.- Weight plates.

You only need a few, but the pic is pretty cool 🙂 Please, check the plate hole´s diameter because you don´t want an awful surprise. I´m sure you know what I mean.

I bet you already have some of these at home 🙂
