This is one of the largest sporting goods retailers globally, with more than 1,600 stores in 57 countries and regions. It’s best known for its retail stores, but it also has an online presence.

Decathlon is a one-stop shop for all things sports and fitness related. It sells equipment for a wide range of sports – anything from football to horse riding, skiing and even scuba diving.

Sports Direct

Sports Direct currently has 420 stores in the UK but also has a website. It sells merchandise from well-known brands including Adidas, Nike, Puma and Dunlop.

This retailer tends to focus more on sportswear, trainers and accessories such as sports bags. It does have a selection of cheap home gym equipment, but its selection is small when compared to other retailers.

Gorilla Sports

This is an online retailer only, but it has an impressive selection of fitness equipment. Its main aim is to provide quality equipment at affordable prices.

It tends to focus on the type of equipment you would find in a local gym. That includes a variety of free weights, weight bags and medicine balls, exercise mats, and it even has weighted vests.

You can also buy a selection of sportswear and accessories such as sports bags and baseball caps. If you fancy something more professional, it has free-standing work stations such as weight benches and studio bikes.


Powerhouse Fitness

Powerhouse fitness only has nine retail stores nationwide, but thanks to its website you can select from more than 6,000 fitness-related products.

It has a selection of inexpensive gym equipment including kettlebells, dumbbells and weighted balls. If you are into boxing or martial arts it also has an impressive selection of gloves, pads and shields which are reasonably priced.

Take home

If you are considering purchasing cheap home gym equipment, it’s worth taking your time. There are many forms of exercise that don’t require equipment in their basic form.

It’s better to start a fitness regime before buying equipment, so can find out what type of exercise appeals to you. You will be less likely to purchase equipment that you then stop using due to lack of interest.
