Home Gym Guide

My mission with True Fitness is to make fitness more accessible for the average American. The fitness industry is currently in a state of information overload and companies are profiting off of the confusion. They are taking advantage of the average American's ignorance by constantly showing off flashy, overly complicated, niche products. They use attractive models and spokespeople (that probably don't even use the product) to promote their overpriced equipment and market it as "luxury" when it's really just novel. That's not a compliment.

I often hear of people spending thousands of dollars on a stationary bike or a cable machine with a mirror, and I can only sigh and say, "Well, at least they're doing SOMETHING. Too bad about all that wasted money though." The old ways of getting healthy still prevail because, even with all the advancements in fitness technology, no one has been able to invent anything better than a chunk of metal. On top of that, a quality home gym will last much longer, yield better results, and cost less than any "luxury" fitness equipment.

If there is one thing I've learned in my years studying health and fitness, it is that simple is ALWAYS better. Making an exercise more complicated for the sake of novelty is never an improvement. It is for this reason I have created a guide for anyone to follow to equip your own home gym with what you need to get the job done. Consider buying used equipment as much of this can be found at a hefty discount.

ONE: The Single Kettlebell $45-$70

The oldest tool of strength-building known to man. Humanity has been using kettlebells to build strength and athleticism for over 300 years. No stationary bike or rowing machine is taking the kettlebell out of the game anytime soon.
