Best Home Gym Equipment For Limited Space

Want a home gym? Don't know where to start? We've created the ultimate guide on finding the best home gym equipment for limited space. If you want compact exercise equipment, look no further, we've found the perfect setup for anyone wanting to step up their game at home.

Best Home Gym Equipment For Limited Space

Exerfly Portable

The Exerfly Portable is the perfect home gym equipment. Weighing only 7.5 kgs, the Portable was designed to be able to fit into a bag and be taken wherever you want to go. It takes compact exercise equipment to the next level with dimensions of 80x54x27 cm, so premier teams and athletes use it worldwide to work out at home, in the gym, and hotels.

Despite the Portable being a compact home gym, it offers a full range of exercises and movements to train.

Lower Body Exercises

The Exerfly Portable is for anyone wanting home gym equipment that you can easily transport to any location. Whether pro-athletes, rehab patients or weekend warriors, the Portable's highly customisable setups mean you can target any muscles and train specific sports movements.

The technology gauges force production based on the power of the user, allowing them to train specific qualities pertaining to performance demands such as decelerating and accelerating. For this reason, it suits any training goals, whether that be hypertrophy, strength, or endurance.

With flywheel training, there is constant resistance in both the upward and downward phase of the exercise. This continuous load stimulates the muscles in both the concentric (muscle shortening) and eccentric (muscle lengthening) phases.

With traditional weight training, resistance is based on the concentric phase 1RM, so the weight never challenges eccentric capabilities. With flywheel training, maximal resistance is felt throughout the entire movement.

The flywheel gives back only what you produce concentrically, which means they have complete control of the resistance generated by the flywheel inertia based on their force production.


  • Features an optional sensor and removable top that can be attached to any vertical structure to train rotational and lateral movements.
  • Features carefully engineered high-quality hybrid ceramic bearings, ensuring friction is reduced so users can achieve maximum speed and response.
  • It uses a single rope system to prevent tangling during workouts, allowing for a smooth and seamless experience.
  • Flywheels range from inertia of 0.01kg-m2 to 0.7kg-m2, meaning you can train with various resistance levels, providing different muscle stimuli.


  • Does not have motorised technology
  • Cannot add a bench as an accessory

Exerfly Platform

The Exerfly Platform is a flywheel training platform that makes for the perfect home gym equipment. Stable and robust, the Platform was built for everything from heavy-duty workouts to rehabilitation. Measuring 130x35x105 cm, the Platform is spacious enough for various accessories to be added and be turned into an entire compact gym.

With the Exerfly Platform, users can perform an unlimited range of exercises and movements, such as the following:

Lower Body Exercises

The Exerfly Platform is for anyone wanting a full gym setup at home or for athletes wanting to take their workouts to the next level through motorised technology.

Exerfly's advanced Motorised Technology offers an eccentric increase of up to 80%. Meaning you can create an eccentric overload based on a specific percentage greater than concentric output. So a 10% overload will give back 10% more inertia than produced during the concentric phase. This is only available on the Exerfly Platform and Rack Mount.

It is much more versatile than the Exerfly Portable as you can add many accessories such as a bench or foot block. You can perform a whole-body workout on the Platform with ease.

It's sturdy, weighing approximately 40 kg, so it isn't going to move or wobble when deep in your heavy bench pressing sets.


  • More versatile arsenal of exercises
  • Virtually unbreakable
  • It has an option of up to 80% eccentric overload
  • Flywheels are easy to change


  • Not as compact as Portable
  • Moderately heavy

Exerfly Rack Mount

The Exerfly Rack Mount was first designed for throwers and has evolved into multi-functional compact gym equipment that attaches to any squat rack. It is especially suited for multi-directional throwing sports.

It allows users to recreate fundamental rotational sports movements related to swimming, punching, throwing, and much more. At 43x21x12 cm, the Rack-Mount is light weight, transportable, and can be attached to any vertical surface the user has at hand.

The Rack Mount allows for various movements and exercises such as:

Upper Body Exercises

Rotational Movements

Lower Body Exercises

And many more…

The Exerfly Rack Mount is for anyone wanting an accessible, compact gym setup that you can use in any space. Adjusting the Rack-Mount between exercises has never been easier with the all-new Rack Mount slider accessory.

Simply pull the pin, slide the Rack Mount to your desired position, then release the pin. The Rack Mount Slider is the perfect accessory for the Rack Mount, allowing for quick transitions between exercises and more time under tension.

The eccentric motor can also be used with the Rack Mount for rotational overload movements or whatever your creative mind can think of. While you can perform some horizontal exercises with the Platform and Portable, it is more challenging. You need someone to stand on them to anchor them.

With the Rack Mount, you have complete freedom to rotate and one-arm row as you please.


  • It can be attached to any vertical structure
  • Most light weight and compact piece of equipment
  • You can attach motorised technology


  • Lower body exercises are more limited compared to other Exerfly equipment
  • Cannot add as many accessories as other Exerfly equipment

What To Look For When Purchasing Home Gym Equipment With Limited Space


One of the most apparent factors is size. You will not have the same amount of space that gyms and performance centers do to fit extensive equipment at home. You will want to consider buying equipment that will not take up a lot of space and force you to move your furniture around.


If you want to store your equipment out of sight after a workout, you'll want to make sure that your equipment can easily be moved and stored safely. You'll want to consider the dimensions of your equipment, how much they weigh, and what the de-assembling process looks like.


Setting up a home gym often does not require the same budget as setting up a real gym. And for this reason, you will want to invest in equipment that can perform a broader range of exercises and movements than standard gym equipment.

Build Quality

There is nothing worse than purchasing home gym equipment that is low quality and will break easily. Apart from the warranty policy, an extra prudent step is to research the materials and build used.


Everyone wants to get the best deal for the lowest price. However, with home gym equipment, there comes a risk in quality when trying to buy the cheapest gear. Make sure you are buying equipment within your budget, which will save you money in the long run compared to keeping a gym membership.

Ease Of Use

No one wants a device they don’t know how to use. Apart from instruction manuals, it's worth checking the website for video tutorials or even chatting with their customer service to see how accessible the equipment is and whether they offer help setting it up.
