Here are the categories of products proposed:

Dumbbells

The items suggested below all have one thing in common in that you can easily and rapidly dial a specific weight for each dumbbell instead of having to unscrew clamps in order to make simple weight substitutions, which is how some other less practical devices work.

Workout Benches

While shopping for a workout bench, there are a few things you'll want to consider. Firstly, you'll need to figure out if you want your bench to be fixed in the flat position or if you'll want the options of putting it in the incline or decline positions. Secondly, you'll want to evaluate whether you are seeking a bench that has olympic barbell style supports on each side, which you'll find essential if you intend of performing the popular barbell bench press exercise.

Barbells and Weight Plates

While commercial gyms usually carry a selection of barbells with fixed weights attached to them, this usually is not an option for a home gym because of cost and floor space concerns. That is why the models proposed below all include a barbell on which you can add weight plates as needed in order to obtain the correct weight configurations.

Gym-Type Equipment

The equipments found below will let you perform many pulley and handle exercises, as well as other well known commercial gym-type exercises such as the chest fly and the chest press. They are targeted at those who prefer fitness equipment that is tailored towards specific exercises, contrary to free weights which can be used for a plethora of exercises.

Swiss Balls

The three swiss balls proposed below each have a different diameter to cater to specific body heights. The 75cm is tailored for those measuring between 6'2" and 6'7"; the 65cm for those 5'8" - 6'1"; and the 55cm to those 5'1" - 5'7". The fourth item is a swiss ball containment unit that can be helpful if you intend of using your swiss ball as an office chair and you are looking for something to hold it in place.

Stretch Bands

Finally, the products below each come with a variety of stretch bands, allowing for different resistance configurations.
