The Deadlift is a favourite exercise of ours at Fitness Warehouse. One of the reasons is that you don’t need much gym equipment, if any, to do them. Want to be functional for life or grow lean muscle? Learn to love this movement because it will help you put on muscle mass, build your core and give you super powers. We might be lying about the super powers. But before you get carried away with deadlifts... you'll need to learn how to hip hinge properly!
When it comes to training at home it's important to remember that what works for one person might not necessarily work for you. Therefore, there's a few things to consider. Firstly, what are your health goals? Understanding what you want to achieve will help you decide what style of training you’ll use. As a result, this will help determine which equipment suits your style of training. Secondly, how much space do you have? Your space will need to be functional, so the equipment and flooring you choose needs to optimise your workout area. Thirdly, what is your budget? Ultimately this will be a deciding factor for the type and style of equipment you purchase.

Buying a treadmill is a big investment and the simple act of oiling your treadmill regularly will save you a small fortune in the long run. Pun intended. Thankfully, the job of oiling your treadmill is pretty easy to do. A common question we get at Fitness Warehouse is "How often should I oil my treadmill"?. The answer is at least once a month. It's important to refer to your owners manual for specific instructions around maintenance for your machine, however, some helpful tips follow.
One thing we know for sure at Fitness Warehouse is that having fitness equipment at home breaks down a lot of the barriers people have when it comes to their own health and fitness. We've had countless conversations on the shop floor about how empowering it is to workout on your own terms.
