We've made it to the new year, and three days in many of us are still going strong with our resolutions for 2017.

As is true with every new year, one of the most popular resolutions people have in 2017 is to live a healthier life and start exercising. It's a tough goal to stick to; gyms are expensive and crowded, working out is a huge time commitment, and more than anything else, it's physically exhausting.


Sure, it's supposed to be physically exhausting (that's the whole point of it), but getting your body used to that level of exertion is a difficult process.

But we can do it. With enough willpower and determination, and with the amount of workout plans available online, you don't need a personal trainer to keep you on track as long as you stay committed to the process.

Below, Insider Picks has collected home gym equipment for various types of workouts. There are options for those looking to go all out with their home gym, and others for people with limited space. Whether you're looking to up your endurance, or come out of the winter season with a set of washboard abs, there's something here that could help you on your way.
