The ultimate guide to building your own gym.

Best Gym Equipment for the Home or Business – 2017 Edition

You’ve always wanted to build your own gym but never took that initiative to do all the research. Well I did. I searched all around for the best equipment to put in your own gym. It may be a personal gym, commercial gym, or a gym for your company. Whatever the reason, I have made the ultimate guide to making this gym your own and as personalized as possible. I have taken quality and price into consideration to give you the best value items for your gym.

I did not rank the items in each category. The reason being that this is an all-inclusive list, and everyone has different plans, goals, and uses for the equipment. However, I did not put any items in these lists that I do not recommend. If I came across items that I have used in the past and were good but not great, I left them out. And since prices are constantly changing, I did factor this into the value, but I did not add each price to the lists.

Without further ado, here is the list of the top products to use when building your own gym.
