By Donovan Baldwin

More and more people are finding exercise less expensive and time consuming when they work out in their own homes. So, it's not surprising that many people are turning away from gym membership and, instead, are choosing to invest their money in a home gyms of one kind or another.

These home gyms, since they incorporate so many features, are often referred to as all-in-one exercise machines.

You can put a home gym of this type in a spare corner of your home, the extra bedroom or even in the basement if you wish. Along with helping you to save money by combining several different types of equipment into one machine, all in one exercise equipment can easily fit in small spaces and take up a lot less weight than their individual counterparts.

All-in-one exercise machines also are sometimes more versatile, and less threatening to some, than traditional free weights.

When you are considering the purchase of an all in one piece of exercise equipment, you should first think about your personal health and fitness goals. You should consider what you hope to achieve from exercising and just how well this particular piece of equipment will benefit you.

The most popular types on the market are those types that are geared towards individuals who are interested in resistance exercises, losing weight, getting fit, bodybuilding, and lifting weights in gerneral.

Bowflex and Total Gym

Right now, the two most popular types of all in one exercise systems are Bowflex icon and Total Gym icon brands which can be a bit expensive.

The Bowflex icon system uses resistant bows that bend instead of the traditional weights that simply lift. The Bowflex all in one exercise machines are designed to fit a wide variety of budgets and needs, and are widely adaptable and extremely popular as well.

To make things even better, you can easily store the basic Bowflex icon system in small, tight places, even under a bed if you choose, although when folded out for use it does take up a little room.
