These Are The Best Home Gym Equipment to Help Hit Your Weight Loss Goals


Let’s admit it—lots of us are still working out in our living rooms, bedrooms, and makeshift home gyms post-pandemic. Thankfully, at-home workout and exercise machines have gotten more accessible and sophisticated over the past few years that you don’t necessarily have to go to the gym to get a good pump—making you question if you ever need that monthly membership at all. 

But when decking out your small-scale home gym or personal training studio with equipment, it’s smart to be selective. Consider space and fitness goals—you probably don’t need to house every existing piece of gym equipment, just tailored essentials that can provide a great workout session and up your fitness routine, too. 

To help you narrow down what you might need to for your home gym, we’ve rounded up some of the best pieces of fitness equipment on the market. Now, to be real, since nearly all topnotch gym equipment will set you back at least a few thousand bucks, you’ll be glad to know that our picks from Johnson Fitness and Wellness are all on sale until the 30th—for up to 65% off. That’s too good a deal to pass up! 

Whether you’re new to working out or a seasoned fitness enthusiast with years of experience, our four picks will make sure you never miss a good sweat- and dopamine-inducing session. 

A training bench

With an adjustable platform used for performing weight training exercises, the Horizon Adonis Home Gym Bench can be your all-in-one home gym for a total body workout. It has seven adjustable backrest positions and two adjustable seat positions, allowing you to move it from a flat position to an incline of up to 90 degrees. 

Apart from adjustability, the bench also provides durability thanks to its thick oval tubing for a stable workout surface. It also comes with transport wheels for easy mobility and storage. At 65% off, it’s now priced at P8,748.25 from its original sticker price of P24,995. 

You can target a variety of muscle groups with this training bench. For a full-body workout, we recommend trying an incline dumbbell fly, decline bench press, flutter kicks, and spilt squats. 

A power rack

The Horizon Adonis Home Gym Rack’s useful for any home gym since it provides a way to safely perform weight lifting exercises without a spotter. In addition to offering protection from heavy lifting, it can also be used for a wide variety of strength training and conditioning exercises. 

Its solid round tubing construction and non-slip frame make it incredibly stable, even holding up to 352 pounds. Plus, its five adjustable height settings from 92.7 to 128 cm (3 to 4 feet) will let you get creative with your routine. 

Some possible exercises to ramp up your routine include barbell squats, barbell shrugs, and barbell overhead press. This can serve as a centerpiece of your garage gym or as a versatile station in your training studio at 65% off until the 30th—from P16,995 down to P5,948.25. 

An multistation machine

If your space allows for a bigger all-rounder machine, we suggest you consider the Horizon Torus 5, now at 50% off for P89,997.50 until month-end. This should be able to replace a whole gym of equipment because it does it all—from upper body to lower body exercises. 

It includes a foamed-dipped lat bar and exercise handles for extra comfort and two additional stations specifically designed for leg press and vertical knee raises. Built to last, the Torus 5’s heavy-gauge steel tubing and electroplated sheeting provide a sturdy frame, while its thick 6mm cable adds strength and durability. 

Opt for this one if you want to incorporate multiple weight machines in a lone equipment, instead of having separate machines spread over different areas. It also allows for easy movement between exercises—from a normal workout to an intense circuit training. This powerhouse also comes equipped with water bottle holders and towel hooks. Nifty! 

A starter indoor bike

While cycling is an effective form of cardio and strength training, riding outside isn't always ideal (especially when weather’s bad), so an indoor cycling bike like the Horizon 7.0IC Indoor Bike is a great alternative. It replicates the experience of a spin class in the comforts of your home and deliver a varied and engaging workout for a personalized adrenaline-boosting experience. 

Its console displays time, distance, calories, speed, resistance, and cadence—giving you all the information you need to track your progress throughout your workout. The main benefit of an indoor cycling bike over an off-road one is precision, since you can alter the resistance, cadence, and intensity of your routine. The Horizon 7.0IC also has Bluetooth connectivity, so you can pair it with your tablet or smartphone and keep up with your go-to cycling classes. 

Extras include a dual water bottle holder to keep you hydrated and clip-in pedals for a secure, comfortable ride. Ride how you want, with or without instructors, with the Horizon 7.0IC Indoor Bike at 30% off until the 30th—now down to P62,996.50 from P89,995. 

Whether you want to go on a guided trail run, cycle, lift weights, strengthen your core, or condition your body, Johnson Fitness and Wellness has something for all types of exercisers—beginners and pros alike. If you want to invest in the gear you need to build your ideal home gym and upgrade your workouts, now’s the time to do so.
