The Best Fitness Equipment for Weight Loss

When it comes to weight loss, some of the most efficient ways to shift that weight include high-intensity interval training, running, cycling, rowing, incline walking and more. You’ll be glad to know, all can be completed within the comfort of your own home using affordable fitness equipment!

The best fitness equipment for weight loss is dependent on your individual preferences, fitness level, and goals. Here are some effective options to consider:


Rowing Machines

One of the best ways to activate muscles all over the body is through rowing. Rowing engages multiple muscles groups simultaneously, including the legs, core, back, shoulders, and arms. Rowing can provide an intense cardiovascular workout while helping you build strength. Depending on your intensity and duration, you can burn a significant number of calories, making it beneficial for weight loss goals.

Cross Trainers/Elliptical

This low-impact machine provides a full-body workout and is gentle on the joints. It’s great for burning calories and improving cardiovascular fitness. Regular elliptical training can boost your metabolism, even after you’ve finished your workout. This means you continue to burn calories at a higher rate for some time post-exercise.



Treadmills are ideal for high-intensity interval training (HIIT), a highly effective method for burning calories and improving fitness. You can alternate between periods of high intensity running and recovery periods of walking. You can control the intensity by simply adjusting speed and incline. Perfect for all users, beginner or advanced!

Indoor Cycling Bikes

Cycling on a stationary bike is a low-impact and efficient way to shed pounds. It’s an excellent cardiovascular exercise that elevates your heart rate. Indoor cycling can burn a significant number of calories, especially during high-intensity workouts.

Most indoor cycling classes and bikes offer various workout profiles and resistance levels. This allows you to customise your workouts to match your fitness level and weight loss goals.



These versatile weights are excellent for full-body workouts and aid both strength training and cardiovascular fitness. A 10-minute kettlebell workout is highly effective and can be completed in the gym or at home, so is ideal for those that are limited on time.

Skipping Rope

Popular amongst Boxers, skipping is a simple yet effective tool for improving cardio health and burning calories – ideal for HIIT.


Weight Training

Resistance training with dumbbells, barbells, or weight machines can help increase muscle mass, boost metabolism, and contribute to weight loss by burning calories even at rest.


Most fitness equipment come equipped with monitors that display metrics such as speed, distance, time, and calories burned. Tracking your progress can help you set and achieve weight loss goals.
