Workout at home: Portable exercise equipment for your home gym

Portable exercise equipment can be an excellent way to workout at home. Locked within our home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we need to keep ourselves fit. Exercising regularly isn’t just good for your health, it also affects your mood. When you exercise, your body releases hormones called endorphins. These are also called the feel-good hormones because they act as a pain reliever and happiness booster. They can help you fight stress and gloom.

So, even if your life has become locked within your home, you need to exercise regularly to keep yourself fit and happy. And to help you do that, here are some affordable and portable exercise equipment for you. They can bring the gym to your home at an affordable price. And best of all, they don’t take up much space.

Portable exercise equipment for your home gym

portable exercise cycle - exercise equipment for elderly

Portable exercise cycle:

Exercise cycles usually take up a lot of space and are expensive too. Moreover, after some initial use, they often end up gathering dust in a corner or being used as a clothes hanger or storage stand. That is why, when our doctor advised my parents to buy an exercise cycle, I got them a portable exercise cycle. This portable exerciser takes up very little space. We keep it under a side table. And every evening, my father picks it up and takes it to the garden and uses this portable exercise cycle while sitting comfortably in a chair. Even my mother finds it very easy to use despite her painful knees. 

There are several kinds of portable exercise cycles available. I bought the exercise cycle that has an adjustable resistance level, LCD display, and sturdy build. My parents have been using it for over a year. You can check out my review of this portable exercise cycle.
