Guide to Compact and Space Saving Gym Equipment
Chin-Up Bar by GoFit.
Retail price: $30
A chin-up bar is the ultimate way to use your own body as gym equipment. With the help of the chin up bar, you will exercise your upper body by lifting your own body weight.
The chin-up bar may also be used lower to the ground as a way to ground ankles and feet for crunches.
Ironmann Double Ab Wheel
Retail price $10 and up
Any brand of ab wheel will basically do the same thing – work your abs very effectively.
Mini Exercise Bike by SunFitness.
Retail price: $89.99
The SunFitness Mini Exercise Bike should not really be called a bike. This compact piece of gym equipment should be called a peddler. The small Mini Exercise Bike is simply a stationary piece of floor exercise equipment that has bicycle pedals.
It does include an LCD monitor, which displays important details about the distance pedaled, the workout time, and the nubmer of repetitions performed, and the distance pedaled.
The SunFitness Mini Exercise Bike can be used to strengthen legs. It can can also be used to tone arms – now try that with a regular stationary bike.
Ultimate ProGym with DVD by GoFit.
Retail price: $19.99
The Ultimate ProGym with DVD is basically a set of resistance bands that comes with an instructional DVD. The exerciser can choose up to seven levels of resistance with the color-coded tubes. The Ultimate ProGym with DVD stores neatly into a small storage bag that is included.
Ultimate Thigh Master Exerciser by SunFitness.
Retail price: $39.99
The Ultimate Thigh Master is one of those almost ridiculous looking devices you used to see at 2 in the morning on infomercials. The funny thing is, the thigh master really does work. The thigh master does strengthen and tone inner thigh muscles, outer thigh muscles and the hip area.
It can also be used for upper body toning.
Many thigh masters have the same design, like the original one by Suzanne Somers. They all pretty much work the same.
