For almost two years people had to stay at home due to covid. Now that these limitations are over, some people don’t want to lose certain habits. If you want to have a home gym, segmental body composition scales have to be the first device that you purchase. What’s the point of exercising and eating right if you can’t accurately track the changes in your body? These scales let you know which areas of your body have more fat, so you can focus on them. They have similar technology to that used by gym scales, but at a fraction of the cost. You can also find out if your muscles are growing or not, so you can make modifications to your workout routine. There are over 10 elements that you can analyse in your body, accurately and separately.
Basic elements for your gym at home
A professional gym is full of different types of machines that allow the clients of that gym to perform a wide variety of exercise routines. When you decide to have a home gym, you don’t have the same space or the same budget as a gym, but you can still have just what you need. The basic elements your home gym should have are: an exercise mat or yoga mat, resistance bands with different limits, some kind of bench or box, an ab wheel and a jump rope. However, to build muscle, you will need a little extra weight. In this case, you can buy dumbbells of different sizes, barbells and a kettlebell. It is recommended that you design an exercise routine before so that you know exactly what items you will need to have during the first weeks. Over time, you can add other items.
You don’t need a personal trainer
One advantage of going to a gym is that you usually have access to a personal trainer. That is a person who tells you what exercises to do and how to do them. Thanks to advances in technology, you can now use apps on your mobile phone to create personalised exercise routines for yourself. Although many of these apps require you to pay for a membership to access a personalised workout routine, the cost is usually quite affordable. You don’t need a personal trainer when you can see the exercises you need to do on your phone, tablet, or even on a Smart TV. The same goes for nutritionists. There are mobile apps that offer you a personalised and easy-to-follow eating plan.
