Best home exercise equipment for weight loss

Best home exercise equipment for weight loss are almost similar with the best cardio machine for weight loss.

But is cardio is the best way to lose weight at home?

Or should you look into something else?

As per my experience just going to the gym will not help you lose weight and we are busy people who are looking to know more on weight loss machines for home use in india.

Best ways to lose weight at home as per Me

  1. Compound exercises 
  2. Strength Training
  3. Diet

 

Yes not long hours of cardio. Some studies show that compound exercises uses more energy and more muscle thus more beneficial for weight loss as well as muscle gain.

And as popular beliefs go diet is at least 70% of your total home workout effort. So mind what you are eating, you are what you eat.

What equipment do I need to lose weight?

You will definitely need some weights, smith machine, power rack and a place to do some cardio.

I have seen many friends of mine go to the local gym and ask “what to do in the gym to lose weight fast” or “best equipment for weight loss at gym”.

Now there could be some answers to the first question but mostly no answer for what could be the best fat burning gym machines.

And also note you can not get slim for a particular body part. Meaning you can not just lose fat from belly and keep your arm full.

And by weight I also think that you mean the additional fat you carry.

Does going to the gym help you lose weight?

By just mere going to the gym? Nope. You have to put in the effort in it either you go the gym or workout at home like me. You have to create your mind muscle  connection, be able to give your all efforts. You can not get desired results just by lifting weights or running on a treadmill. Physical change starts from your mind. 

And always think that you do no need to lose weight rather think that you need to gain a healthy weight in which weight category you are strongest and beautiful.

I feel whenever we think of workout to lose weight it puts us in a negative mindset so think of gaining strength and mobility not lose weight.

It will not matter at all if you have the best equipment for weight loss – it all begins within, begins from your mind.

As I am a fan of working out at home with no crowd, chatter or other disturbance, I will now tell you what I think are the best home exercise equipment for weight loss.

I will also put weight loss machine prices with my suggestions so that you can pick up as per your budget.

Also apart from price when choosing the weight loss machines for home use in india and the space it requires.

My list of best equipment for weight loss

What is the best home gym equipment for weight loss?

  1. Power Rack
  2. Treadmill
  3. Stepmill
  4. Exercise Bikes
  5. Elliptical trainer
  6. DeadBall
  7. BattleRope
  8. Morning walker machine? :p
  9. Fancy weight loss vibrating machine?

No one, puts an power rack when it comes to losing weight. They all start with a treadmill but a power rack is my no one choice.

A power rack

I know, you were not expecting it but I can’t help it placing a power rack in the top position when it comes to best equipment for weight loss at gym or at home.

You lose weight or fat when you do some heavy lifting and your body requires the energy to repair it. And this can be done effectively by doing strength training and compound exercises. Thus the power rack.

Also a power rack can be counted among best fat burning gym machines – but Indian gyms in suburban areas do not have them despite their versatility. 

Price: 10,000 INR – 50,000+ INR

Treadmill

Treadmill! Ah hah! The no 1 weight loss equipment that comes to your mind when you think of losing fat by doing exercises. Yes running is a great exercise if done moderately and if you have the chance then always ditch the treadmill.

Running is always better when outside. Mix it up with short bursts and 1-2 km runs.

Now treadmills are of 2 types – motorised and manual.

And in some high end treadmill you can do some fancy stuff too.

But if you are on a budget go for a manual one. But never ever depend on just a treadmill to lose weight.

Price: 8000 INR to 50,000 INR+

Treadmill vs Cross Trainer

StepMill/Stair Climber

Now, this is one costly equipment to have in a home gym where you can get a lot more out of the money spent.

I will not recommend it if you are on a budget – it is only for the brave heart who wants to spend some money.

Now climbing stairs is multi joint exercise and does use a lot of energy so climbing a stair. But not probably using a machine.

Price: 25,000 INR+

Suggested Model links – 

Treadmill vs Elliptical vs Bike vs Stairmaster

Space Requirement – Medium

Exercise Bikes

Exercise bikes are not as costly as Stair climbers, but I would say more effective in terms of cost and value for your home gym.

A good exercise bike would cost you around 6,500 and goes all the way upto 25,000 INR online.

Like climbing stairs cycling is also good for losing weight and cardio.

With Air bikes you can monitor your cycling speed, distance covered and increase or decrease resistance. 

And some Exercise bikes for cardio workouts comes with movable handles to sqeze out some extra fat out of your body.

Price: 8000 INR to 50,000 INR+

Elliptical trainer

Elliptical trainer is used for climbing, walking, running but using one machine only. These are also known as cross trainers. 

As per Livestrong, you can burn almost 270 calories per half hour.

But again actual running, climbing stairs are better.

But if you have joint issues, do not want to leave your home/apartment then this is one of the best equipment for weight loss.

Price: 8000 INR – 50,000 INR

DeadBall/Slam Ball

A Deadball is heavy ball between 6-20kg which doesn not bounce back when you slam it on the ground or throw around. As this doesn’t bounce this is called a Deadball. Also this is known as Slamball.

Now this is not exactly a machine but a Deadball can be used for various exercises which requires whole body thus resulting in more calories burn and muscle gain and fat loss.

I personally use USI 12kg deadball. Buy as per your weight handling ability. Look in youtube for exercise ideas.

Price: 2000 INR

Suggested Model links –

Space Requirement – Small

BattleRope

Not exactly a machine but like the slamball, it is avery capable home gym weight loss equipment. A round of battle rope workout can workout your whole body. Cardio and strength training like the slamball.

Battle Ropes are heavy, thick ropes readily available on Flipkart and Amazon. 

Although storing the battlerop is easy but to workout with it you will need a long space. And a place to tie up the rope.

Price: 2000 INR+

Morning walker machine

Hmm, we have become soo lazy that we have invented a morning walker machine. I had first seen this on TV and was thinking can it really mimic walking by vibrating?

Umm, i do not know if they help you lose weight buy many seem to use it for 15 min daily.

But can this actually match walking outside or exercise bikes, treadmills? Tell me in the comments.

Fancy weight loss vibrating machine?

This type of machines are supposed to give oscillation massage to aid weight loss. These are not cheap, takes some space.

Better go with them after doing a lot of reviews.

Many seem to like it, but I believe many people are actually lazy. And these vibrating machines gives them a way to not to sweat, pant for air but loose weight.

So better research more before you buy one.

Here are some popular weight loss vibrating machines  – 

Best 4 fat burning gym machines

  • StairMaster/Stair climber
  • Battle Rope
  • Elliptical Trainer
  • Fan Bike

These four are probably the best fat burning machines you would find in a gym. These are also easy on joints so less impact injuries.

Most of them in this list are above 10,00 INR so not really for a budget weight loss machines for home use in india.

Now can you lose weight faster on treadmill or elliptical?

A treadmill mostly works on your legs,  mean it definitely works on your whole body but legs are mainly used, where as if you use the arm handles on your elliptical machine, then you are actively using your hands too!

Thus meaning more involvement than the treadmill thus you will burn more calories on the elliptical trainer.

Best exercise equipment for obese

Best exercise equipment for obese or overweight people in India would be the treadmill or Elliptical trainer. As you are overweight you have to keep your knee joint healthy. Knee joint can keep up with a lot of pressure but high impact exercises with overweight will shorten its lifespan.

A elliptical trainer and treadmill is a great solution to get started at home to lose your obesity.

But on another thought you can start with speed walking in your home, nearby park, footpaths. And you will not need to spend anything.

Weight checking machine

Why you need a weight checking machine?

You need to measure your weight in morning after your bathroom time before breakfast. You then need to put that time down in your phone or notebook.

You will then know if you are progressing towards your goal.

You must have weight loss goal (A number), and a way to track your progress.

You can check your weight twice a week or once a week.

I am trying to gain weight, I want to reach 60kgs and I check my weight every Sunday morning.

Apart from that – check for weight checking machines that can measure BMR.

And for tracking you can also use Calipers to measure how many inches you have lost.
