No Sweat: here are the best pieces of kit for working out at home

They say a tidy room is a tidy mind. So does a beautiful workout space lend itself to a beautiful body? We certainly hope so.

When it comes to fitting your home with a private gym, there are a few key brands to keep in mind to ensure that your workouts are taken to the next level.

TechnoGym are the industry standard for beautiful home gymware that’s crammed with thoroughly innovative tech. The Skillrun treadmill, for example, has been designed with professional athletes in mind, and allows its users to run against resistance in order to increase power and top speed. It’s like having your own weight sledge and parachute to run against, all in the comfort of your own home.

Variety is as important, however, as technology. The humble dumbbell and its swinging brother, the kettlebell, are good friends to the muscle-bound, and this home set opens up some interesting options to work every muscle in your body naturally. All that’s left, then, is the right bottle and bag to carry your water and trainers from bedroom to basement. We’re particularly fond of this marble-effect number from S’well, and would trust a TUMI holdall with even the most limited edition designer running shoes.

Here is our comprehensive list of what to buy, and where. Now there’s no excuse to skip that workout…
