How to setup a home gym for just $500


With the chill of winter and shorter daylight hours in many parts of Australia, it’s easy to give up those outdoor activities that keep us fit and healthy during the warmer months. You might even be tempted to join an expensive gym to keep your fitness routine going, but we all know that after the initial burst of commitment, that gym membership is just an ongoing drain on the finances. So why not invest in a home gym instead? With Gumtree, you can set up a home gym for around $500.

Staying healthy doesn’t have to be expensive. As long as you’re not training for the Olympics, you can get all the exercise you need with some basic gym equipment at home. In fact, Gumtree has everything from treadmills, exercise bikes and smith machines to anything you need for yoga and pilates. For those who are gym shy, there are courses available online to familiarise yourself with fitness & training & health & nutrition.
