Putting together a home gym doesn’t have to be expensive, and working out at home right now can have many benefits when it comes to time and convenience. As well, home can be a pressure-free zone to work out when no one is looking! There is so much that you can do with a small space and a few cost-efficient pieces to give yourself a total body workout.

Here are some of our top selections from $9.95 to $299 that will give you a little of everything you’ll need to stay motivated and stay in shape at home. And don’t forget to grab those runners and head outside for a little fresh air and cardio to round things out.

Thank you to Crystal Creek Homes for allowing us access to the third story of their Inner City showhome located in Currie. Incredible, flexible space in this home beyond the four levels of living space, a home gym could also be accommodated in their unique carriage suite over the garage.
