Many people out there prefer a home gym to the commercial gym. You can workout whenever you like, wear whatever you like…or wear nothing at all if you’re into that. You play your own music and do not have to deal with some of the interesting characters that are common in just about every gym. We have compiled our list of the top 3 gyms for those of you that prefer to get your lift on in the comfort of your own home.
Different types of Home Gyms
There are lots of different types of home gyms out there from multi-station to bodyweight to single stack to power racks. For us we prefer the power rack style gym as they give you more of a true weightlifting experience than a machine does. However there are some machines out there that are better than others. Being that this article is about the best there is for your dream home gym we only picked the best of the best.
Here are the top 3 home gyms on the market for 2017:
