  2. Power rod home gyms are very popular. They use flexible rods of varying stiffness to easily change resistance levels. This system requires less space and is less expensive, but it is also less durable and not a good choice for serious athletes who require greater resistance ranges.
  3. Gravity resistance home gyms are lightweight, least expensive and usually easily stored. They will not hold up to workouts for serious athletes, though..
  4. Treadmills are great for cardio, but offer no resistance training. Serious runners need to make sizeable investments on machines that will hold up to hea...
