Best Home Gym Equipment For Losing Weight
Are you planning to use exercise to help you reach your weight loss goals? There are a variety of different home gym equipment options that are sure to make your fitness journey as effective and enjoyable as possible.
Many exercise types can aid weight loss, including cardio, strength training, compound movements and more. Here at Gym Equipment, we stock the biggest brands in the industry, meaning we have the best equipment to help you reach your weight loss goal.
Home Gym Equipment for Cardio
One of the most popular exercise types for losing weight is cardio. Cardio, short for cardiovascular training, is an aerobic exercise designed to increase your heart rate for specific periods of time. Walking, running, cycling and swimming are all great examples of cardiovascular exercises that can be performed and enjoyed by people of all fitness levels.
While cardiovascular exercise will certainly help you to shift unwanted weight, taking part in this style of exercise comes with a whole array of other health benefits, too, such as typically lowering your resting heart rate and blood pressure, improving your sleep and aiding your mental health.
Let’s look into the different pieces of cardio gym equipment we offer that can help you lose weight.
Treadmills and Running Machines For Cardio
A treadmill is a fantastic piece of home gym equipment for those looking to lose weight. Treadmills are designed to get you walking or running in the comfort of your home, come rain or shine. The intensity of your walk or run can be adjusted by increasing speed and incline to ensure you reach the heart rate zone needed to result in weight loss.
We offer a variety of treadmills and running machines from some of the best-selling brands, including Life Fitness, Sole and Woodway. We’ve picked out some of our best-selling running machines to get your cardio routine off with an on your marks; get set, go!
Life Fitness T5 Treadmill Track Connect
The Life Fitness T5 Treadmill Track Connect is a fantastic all-rounder for both beginner and advanced treadmill users. Not only is the T5 treadmill designed for a run with maximum comfort (this is due to the adjustable FlexDeck System), but it also has features, including metrics and entertainment, that are sure to keep you coming back for more.
The key to being consistent with cardio is to ensure you have a goal to reach or entertainment options to keep you stimulated, and the Life Fitness T5 is designed for just that. It offers a weight capacity of 182kg, meaning you can workout knowing the fixed frame will support you from the beginning of your fitness journey. Life Fitness has multiple treadmill options to be explored, so take a look at the full collection from Life Fitness to find a treadmill that suits your cardio needs.
Attack Fitness Run Attack Curve Treadmill
If you want to upgrade from a classic motorised treadmill and maximise the calories you can burn in your cardio session, a curved treadmill could be a great option for you. The Attack Fitness curve treadmill is designed for short and high-speed sessions to help you increase your endurance and burn more calories.
A curved treadmill will encourage you to maintain proper posture throughout your session, and unlike a traditional motorised treadmill, it uses your self-power to control the treadmill. The Attack Fitness Curve treadmill is designed with comfort in mind, with its rubber-coated slatted deck intended to minimise the impact on your joints. A curved treadmill can also be particularly effective for those already on their fitness journey who want the final push toward their weight-loss goals.
Rowing Machines For Cardio
There are so many reasons why a rowing machine is a great piece of equipment for losing weight. Rowing machines are affordable, provide a full-body workout, and are easy to store at home. Rowing is a fantastic form of aerobic exercise that increases your heart rate, improves your cardiovascular system, and provides full-body conditioning, which increases strength, power and stamina.
We stock a variety of rowing machines to suit all fitness needs and available space; see our suggested rowing machines below.
WaterRower Classic Rowing Machine
Made from solid American walnut, the WaterRower Classic rowing machine exudes quality and style. As with all rowing machines, this WaterRower’s classic design will offer you a full-body workout designed to put you through your paces.

Attack Fitness Indoor Rowing Machine
The Attack Fitness Indoor Rowing Machine provides a low impact workout that benefits the whole body, and is ideal for HIIT or endurance workouts. Attack Fitness’ rower is comfortable and easy to use, with resistance settings on a sliding scale, making this a great choice for those who want to improve their strength, endurance and overall cardio fitness.
Exercise Bikes For Cardio
Using an exercise bike is a fantastic way to reach your cardio goals. Exercise bikes provide you with a lower-body workout to effectively burn calories and body fat, all while strengthening your heart, lungs and muscle groups. Unlike other cardio favourites such as running, using a bicycle will provide less pressure on your joints, making it a great option for those taking their first steps into a new fitness routine. If you want to level things up and maximise calorie burn, exercise bikes can be a great way to incorporate HIIT training into your workout.
Like all gym equipment, exercise bikes can really vary in price, design and integrated features. A home bicycle is an excellent option if you have a limited amount of space without having to compromise on the results. We offer a selection of exercise bikes to fit into your home or commercial gym.
Life Fitness C1 LifeCycle Bike (Track Connect)
Renowned for its smooth, quiet and comfortable ride, the Life Fitness C1 LifeCycle bike is a fantastic all-rounder for quality, functionality and style. All of Life Fitness’ bicycles are designed bio-mechanically, meaning you can be sure your legs will be in the right position and protected from any stress on your knees.
The upright bicycle comes with a built-in track connect console designed for more effective workouts and a host of entertainment options to help you stay motivated and burn those calories. It is also compatible with Zwift, which means you can join virtual rides in real-world locations as well as work out with friends or in a group.
Spirit Commercial Air Bike
If you want a workout that works both your upper and lower body, then an air bike could be a great choice. An air bike is a great piece of equipment for losing weight and provides metabolic conditioning and fat loss. The difference between an air bike and a standard indoor bicycle is that you use your arms and legs simultaneously, providing a full-body cardio-focused workout. The harder you pedal, the faster the fan will spin, creating more resistance and continuing to challenge you as your fitness levels increase.
The Spirit AB900 air bike is the perfect size for a home or studio and gives you the opportunity to elevate your cardio routine into a HIIT workout. Designed with functionality in mind, the air bike has a comfortable moulded seat that can be adjusted up or down to your perfect height. The Spirit AB900 also has a built-in LCD console, showing you your performance stats to keep you on track.
Strength Training Equipment For Losing Weight
Though cardio is considered the go-to for weight loss, strength training certainly has its place in any fitness regime. Strength training can be used prior to your cardio routine to get your heart rate up, as a result making your cardio workout more effective. Additionally, because strength training helps promote muscle growth, this muscle can help boost your metabolism and burn more calories.
When it comes to strength training, there are many different pieces of equipment to choose from. Metabolic resistance training can be particularly effective when combined with cardio. For this, you can use equipment such as dumbbells, kettlebells or medicine balls. The aim of metabolic resistance training is that you give maximum physical effort through compound movements in intense short bursts. For example, adding dumbbell weights to your renegade row or cables to your jump squats.
MultiGyms For Weight Loss
Multigyms are a great option for those wanting to combine cardio and strength training. A multigym is a single piece of equipment that enables you to do multiple exercises without any need for additional equipment. Multi-gyms allow you to perform exercises such as lat pulldowns, bench press, leg extensions or even pull ups. Practising these types of strength-building exercises will complement your cardio routine and help you to build a healthy and strong physique. Multigyms will allow you to effectively work out of all your muscle groups and perform back-to-back supersets, doubling the amount of work you're doing for great fat-loss results.
