Do you have to go to the gym? How do you exercise without going to the gym? My advice is that you don't have to go to the gym to get fit. If you have the confidence to stick to fitness, but you can't go to the gym for various reasons, you can choose to build a small gym for the whole family at home. Even if the equipment is not as good as the normal gym and the atmosphere is a bit poor, but you can start exercising at any time without being affected by others, without being restricted by weather, time, etc. In comparison, there are still many benefits.

What fitness equipment does the 8 square meter home gym have? Home treadmills, steppers, >elliptical machines, ab wheels, yoga mats, pull-up bars, tummy boards, elastic bands, dumbbells are all affordable and functional fitness equipment.

The 8-square-meter home gym can basically accommodate 2-3 people for exercise. Treadmills, steppers, and elliptical machines are aerobic fitness equipment, and are fat-burning artifacts. Pull-up bars, abs planks, and abdominal wheels are all core strength training exercises that are good brothers for building muscles.
