5 Pieces of Essential Equipment for a Home Gym

Now that we’re probably facing another freezing British winter, the idea of building your own home gym may have crossed your mind once, twice or thirty times!

 

Making the decision to lose weight or get fit is the first hurdle, but actually committing the time to doing it can be a whole other challenge.

Here at Pursuit Fitness Training we often get asked “with summer round the corner what are the best exercises for my legs?” or “I want to be able to wear a summer dress, what shall I do?” Well today I am going to give you the answer.   Below I have put 6 exercises that you need to put into your workouts, I have even given you the techniques and how many of each to do. However, I don’t know where you are starting from, or if you have any issues like back pain etc, so I would, as always, recommend getting a personal trainer to coach you through the movements just to make sure you are doing them correctly.   Now ladies, these exercises may look a little scary and they may look a bit alien to you.
