Could a home gym save you hundreds?

Could a home gym save you hundreds?

Staying fit and healthy is something we absolutely advocate here at Thane. There’s nothing that we think is worth investing in more than ourselves and our health. But with cost-of-living skyrocketing, we’re all looking for outgoings that we can trim down. So what if we told you we could save you hundreds each year by helping you set up your very own home gym?

Ditch the direct debit


With a typical budget gym membership starting at £19.99, the least a person is likely to spend each year on their membership is £239.88, with many of you probably paying more! Add on top of this what you spend on fuel getting to and from the gym, workout clothes, and probably a coffee or healthy smoothie as a treat for working up a sweat, and that gym membership could be costing you even more than you think.


By ditching the monthly direct debit and investing in some great quality home gym equipment, you could save hundreds of pounds every year. Plus, you’ll gain precious time back that you usually spend getting to and from the gym which you can add on to your workout… or not!


So what sort of equipment is the best suited for slotting perfectly into your home? Let’s take a look…

5 machines in 1

The benefit of going to the gym is the range of different equipment available. However, the Orbitrek X17 Multi-Path Trainer has that covered. The machine offers elliptical, cycling, treadmill, climbing and stairs all in one. Plus, while conventional machines have you repeating the same movement over and over, the Orbitrek features 17 ever changing burn paths. This allows you to activate more muscles, burn more calories, reduce workout time, stay focused and get results!

Sit and sweat

If you’re looking for something a little lower impact, the Orbitrex MX can be used from the comfort of your sofa. It’s ideal for improving mobility and circulation and supporting recovery from injury and illness. Plus, you can power through your workout while reading a book, watching TV, getting work done, or chatting on the phone. It means it’s so easy to fit into your day and you’ll never get bored.

Cardio and core

For low impact cardio and core that can completely transform your body, take a look at the Ab Doer 360. Don’t be fooled, although it’s a comfortable seated workout, you’ll get full body toning as your muscles react to the Dynamic Fluidity Seat’s 360° movements. The ergonomically-advanced design activates your core, back and spinal muscles in every direction to promote a stronger back and healthy posture.


Or there’s the WonderCore® Smart 6-in-1 Fitness System designed to target your entire core from upper, middle and lower abs, to obliques in six great exercises. There’s no assembly required, it’s easy to fold and store away, and it includes a Workout DVD, Exercise Guide and Nutrition Guide.


Once you’ve invested in your home gym equipment, that’s all you’ll need to pay. Which means no more monthly direct debits, no more increasing gym membership costs and no need to leave the comfort of your home. Just a great workout at a fraction of the cost.
