We’ve all had that thought. If only we had time during our busy lives to work out properly, spend some quality time in the gym, we could get in shape. But gyms are so expensive, or aren’t open when we’re free, or are so far away when our couches and TVs are so very close. Besides, there’s always summer, right? Yeah! It’ll be warmer and we’ll have more time and more motivation, right? Right?

Unfortunately, summer bodies are made in the winter, which makes now the perfect time to throw out the excuses with the Christmas tree (I swear, it’ll be gone by the end of the month). We’ve put together a list of the best options for your own personal home gym so you can build your best self from the comfort of your own home.
