  • Recommendations for fitness / exercise equipment?

    Hi everyone,

    If you had $6000-$7000 to purchase fitness and exercise equipment for your station, what would you get? Our small volunteer dept is looking at outfitting a fitness room and could use some guidance from other departments. Right now, we're definitely leaning towards a:
    - treadmill
    - recumbent bicycle (sit-down, not an upright bike)

    Not sure if we should invest in an elliptical machine since we're most likely getting a treadmill and bike. Also not sure if we should purchase a home gym system (perhaps a bowflex or another system that uses plates like the Body Solid EXM1500S); OR should we instead look into a set of barbells and adjustable benches.

    Your thoughts are appreciated.

      Hey there, I'm a Certified Personal Trainer that works with Tactical Fitness (Police, Fire, EMS) in addition to other forms of training (Performance, Strength, Balance, Corrective Exercise, etc.). I will be more than happy to consult further, even helping to find good prices on equipment as well as training in its use. The following are essential, although I have other recommendations as well, some that may be inexpensive:

      -Adjustable Bench
      -Incline Bench
      -Decline Bench
      -Squat Rack
      -Olympic Bar(s) with Quick Release Collars
      -Curling Bar
      -Kettlebell Set (paired, i.e. 2-10kg, 2-16kg, etc.)
      -Plyo Box (can be built with spare thick plywood)

      Just reach out to me with any questions.

        Thanks Ed - I just sent you an email and would love to touch base with you. Purchasing fitness equipment is not my thing.

              -bench
              -squat
              -overhead press
              -dips (with proper attachment)

              Barbell
              Bumper plates
              Assault bike/echo bike
              Pull up bar

              GHD

              Buy quality gear. Buy once cry once.

              Listen to Joko's (Navy SEAL) podcast on setting up a home gym (link attached). He lists the essentials and that's all you really need.

              Don't go buying 3 pieces of equipment to train chest. Buy one piece of equipment that is multi purpose.

                All of this looks appropriate. I support. But I myself gave up the idea of setting up a home gym. I have something similar at my work + shower + double lane pool. And even that leaves a slight claustrophobic scent. I want something more open after a year-long lockdown. I am choosing between golf and field hockey now. I am not an expert either there or there. Field hockey will not require a lot of equipment costs - https://best-fieldhockeysticks.com/b...-stick-brands/ But golf can be more important because the game is considered a status game and many useful contacts can be found. Until I came to some kind of solution.
