Matrix commercial gym equipment range can be seen in major gym chains like Virgin Active and Viva. Their home gym equipment brands have also won numerous international awards – making it some of the best fitness equipment in the world.

We asked the team from Matrix Fitness to share some industry tips and must-haves for an at-home gym. Here’s what they had to say…

What are the key pieces for a home gym?

In terms of popularity the below are products considered:

  • Treadmills (depends on budget but the entire Horizon range is good)
  • Multi Gym (Horizon Torus 5)
  • Spinners with console preferably
  • Bench with Dumbbells
  • Ellipticals, bikes and Rowers depending on space and client preference

What exercises can one do in a home gym?

The options are endless. Let’s dissect the Torus 5. Basically more exercise options than one can think of. Exercise chart illustrates around 40 exercise options which is more that what most people can think of. As for the Functional Trainer, this offers over 200 exercise options. Many clients have used a PT to train them from home and learn new exercise options on this unit as they progress forward.

How much space do you need to create the ideal home gym?

Generally around 3.5m x 5m being a standard room size. Unless a client is in the building phase/ planning phase, then with 3D renders they can be advised on a bigger or smaller space once Matrix has determined the equipment spec. In other cases, a single item purchased like a treadmill or spinning bike could be placed in-front of the TV or in the spare room. With all of our treadmills being able to fold, space will never be a problem for your home gym routine.

How does one maintain a home gym?

By getting a qualified Matrix Fitness technician to service the equipment every 6 to 8 months as a rule of thumb but this may differ based on usage on the equipment too. Preventative maintenance can also be carried out by the client which will in-effect prolong the life of the machines for much longer. We have seen Horizon Home products that can last up to 20 years by implementing these measures.

What can an active gym goer expect from the Matrix Fitness showroom?

Expect the most popular items generally used in any gym environment with many product choices suited to the clients needs and aspirations, when it comes to incorporating apps into the training experience too. Matrix Fitness has products that range from very easy and simple to use to advanced touch screen consoles, that offercutting edge workout experiences.

The showroom includes:

  • Comprehensive Home Cardio line
  • Home and Commercial Spinning options with a full spinning studio ( free classes are available)
  • Unique fitness products such as the Home Connexus, Krank Cycle, Peak Trainer and home Climbmill
  • Sprint 8 HIIT training solutions
  • Vision Commercial Cardio Range
  • Science-based Small group training concept – MX4 studio
  • Home training rooms x 2
  • Free Weights and Functional area
  • Urban series – which is a great value proposition on Commercial equipment
