New Year’s is a great time to get started working towards new fitness goals. For many, the New Year is a time to slow down, evaluate the closing of the year past, and make plans for self-improvement in the year to come. Whether you have New Year’s fitness goals this year or not, the holiday season is a great time to invest in fitness equipment. Take advantage of holiday sales and promotions to build out your home gym with fitness equipment that will help you chase fitness goals not just this year, but for years to come. Below, I’ve collected some of my favorite fitness equipment for working out at home – whatever your goals, there’s something for every goal, need, and budget included.



Treadmills are hands down one of the best pieces of equipment for beginners, because walking is something the majority of people do during their daily life, it’s a very natural form of exercise for most people. If you want to kick it up a notch and add jogging, running, or even interval sessions, these treadmills will go above and beyond.


7750P ASUNA Spaceflex Running Treadmill

This pink treadmill is sure to please any pink fitness fan on your wish list this year. It goes up to speeds of 8 MPH and with up to 12 levels of incline, it’s perfect for walking, jogging, and running. Its large running deck (51L x 19W in) will make your workout incredibly comfortable, while enjoying the onboard device holder, built in speakers, and USB/MP3 port that make curating your workout entertainment a breeze. Its slim fold design makes it easy to fold and store away when not in use.


SF-T7917 Incline Treadmill

The SF-T7917 Incline Treadmill is perfect for the walker, jogger, or runner in your family looking to take their routine to the next level. With this treadmill, go up to speeds of 10 MPH and 15 levels of incline! This spacious deck will be more than large enough (52L x 19W in) to comfortably accommodate your workout of choice! Don’t miss a beat as you make quick changes to speed and incline with the quick buttons on the handrails or make use of one of the 15 pre-programmed workouts to make your workout experience easy and seamless.



If your New Year's goal is to get more active through low impact activity, ellipticals are an incredible option for burning calories and increasing aerobic activity. Take your pick between a traditional elliptical or cardio climber; they’re similar and both provide an incredible workout. In general, ellipticals involve just forward and backward movement, more similar to running, while cardio climbers are meant to mimic more stair stepping or hiking as it does have the incline component.


SF-E3862 Magnetic Elliptical Machine

This elliptical is the perfect companion for anyone looking to get fit with an elliptical machine. Enjoy 24 pre-programmed workouts, 7 workouts modes, and 16 levels of resistance, along with any tracking metrics you may need like speed, time, RPM, distance, odometer, calories, WATT, heart rate, and target heart rate. Checking your heart rate periodically throughout your workout will ensure your intensity is on track with what you expect it to be for your workout, so you can make each workout effective!


SF-E3919 Premium Cardio Climber

This climber is sure to help you reach your New Year’s fitness goals and beyond this year! This low impact machine is friendly on the joints but challenging on the muscles, as you’ll feel your glutes, hamstrings, quads, and calves working overtime as you climb. The full motion handlebars will activate your upper body for a full body, calorie-burning experience! 8 levels of resistance will ensure that you continue challenging yourself to reach your fitness goals and beyond.



If you’re looking for a low impact full body workout that will strengthen muscles and increase overall aerobic endurance and capacity, rowing may be a good addition to your New Year's fitness resolution this year. Rowing is a great full body, low impact activity that’s highly engaging for the upper body, lower body, and core. Whether you’re a seasoned rower, circuit training fan, or ready to get started on a rowing journey, rowing is great for exercisers of all levels!


SF-RW5801 Magnetic Rower

The SF-RW5801 magnetic rower is perfect for beginners looking to start their rowing journey this year. Enjoy 16 levels of magnetic resistance to increase the intensity of your workout and provide a challenging workout regardless of your fitness level. The device holder is perfect for holding phones or tablets so that you can easily watch workout videos, or your entertainment of choice while exercising. Finally, this rowing machine is built for your comfort with the cushioned wide padded seat, and adjustable pivoting foot pedals designed to increase your range of motion.


SF-RW5854 Magnetic Rowing Machine

This rowing machine is designed for those looking for that next level rowing experience.

The padded and molded seat is designed to keep you comfortable, and secure through even the most intense intervals. Enjoy an extended weight capacity of 300 lbs for an incredibly sturdy and durable row. What makes this rowing machine a standout to me is the performance monitor which provides essential metrics such as strokes per minute (SPM), pulse, calories, distance, and time, in addition to 7 preset programs, 2 challenge modes, and 4 customizable programs that will help build and challenge your training routine at home.



Cycling at home seems to be a fan favorite these days, and what’s not to love? It’s a great way to get in low impact cardiovascular exercise that’s simple and straightforward for beginners, but also unlimited in challenges for more advanced cyclists. Heart-pumping sprints and sweat-dripping climbs will have you wondering why you didn’t invest in a cycle bike sooner!

Strength Equipment

No fitness routine is complete without strength training. While there are many options for strength training at home such as dumbbells, kettlebells, or even bodyweight training if someone on your list is truly dedicated to strength training, then there’s nothing they’ll appreciate having more than a squat or power rack set up, which will take their strength training routine at home to a whole new level.
