Exercise equipment is any apparatus or device used during physical activity to enhance the strength or conditioning effects of that exercise by providing either fixed or adjustable amounts of resistance, or to otherwise enhance the experience or outcome of an exercise routine.
It is important to use exercise equipment properly: inappropriate use of equipment can lead to injuries from mild to extreme.
A broad range of different types of exercise equipment are available, including
- Free weights such as dumbbells, kettle bells, barbells
- Resistance bands
- Weight machines
- Flexion machines such as Bowflex
- Pull-up bars
When strength training, not only should the weights used be considered, but also the space available, one's diet, and clothing should also be taken into account.
