Abhijit, 45, is an executive in a private sector company. Over the last two decades, he was busy climbing up the corporate ladder at work. In the process, he ignored his health. But last year, he decided to join a gym near his office to work out regularly.
Unfortunately for Abhijit, soon after he had paid the annual membership, the Covid-19 pandemic broke out. Due to the repeated lockdowns and his company switching to work from home, Abhijit could never really follow up on his resolve to exercise and get fit. That is why he has now decided to set up a gym at home and hired a Personal trainer online. He hopes his newfound discipline will be a way of life for him and his family members.
Since his house has a spare room, Abhijit need not stick to buying just some weights and dumbbells, but he can get good use out of the equipment for his home gym.
His list includes a high-end bicycle for those days he wants to venture out with his friends and colleagues, a treadmill, a rowing machine, and a multi-station. Besides, equipment like dumbbells of different weights, an Olympic barbell, weight plates to rack onto the barbell, a flat bench, a Bosu ball, rubber floor mats, cross trainer, ankle weights and clamps.
Abhijit found all the equipment online and this is what the cost works out to:
- Bicycle– a basic one starts at around Rs. 6,000 and a good one could cost up to Rs. 25,00,000
- Treadmill – From Rs. 16,000 to Rs. 40,000
- Rowing Machine – Rs. 15,000 – Rs. 60,000
- Multi-Station – Rs. 15,000 – Rs. 1 lakh
- Dumbbells: Starts from Rs. 400. Pairs of different sizes will cost you around Rs. 2,500.
- Olympic barbell: Starts from Rs. 9,000.
- Weight plates: Starts from Rs. 1,000. Pairs of different weights will cost you around Rs. 5,000.
- Rubber floor Mats: Around Rs. 6,000 – Rs. 10,000.
- Bosu: Rs. 3,500.
- Cross Trainer: Rs. 12,000 onwards
- Ankle weights: From Rs. 500
- Flat bench: Rs. 2,500
Abhijit also decided to include an oxygen concentrator costing about Rs. 60,000 to his wish list. After all, the Covid pandemic has not fully abated, and he feels having a concentrator at home as a standby is a good precaution.
