How to build a Personal Training Gym at Home

York Barbell offer both full and light commercial strength and conditioning solutions to gyms, Crossfit clubs, colleges, and personal training studios.

With more clients preferring a more personal approach the popularity of small controlled-usage facilities has grown. Whilst York offer full commercial options, our light commercial FTS range can be the perfect option for home-based personal trainers working closely with their clients.

Often, clients will ask what kit they should invest in at home to continue their training.

The Fitness training series (FTS series) is a massive step up from traditional home training solutions. Many home users are now looking to this sort of equipment for a rugged, high-end home gym set-up.

Manufactured to York Barbell’s high standards the range consists of weight training benches, barbell benches, stands, cages and cable machine. All with a light-commercial warranty.

It delivers versatile training option on a smaller footprint than our full commercial ranges. Perfect for garage gyms where space is a premium you can create you very own strength and conditioning zone.

The FTS range can be combined with our Olympic bars and plates or used with 1” bars like our 2 meter beefy bar to accommodate price and training space.

Here's a few example of our key lines that work brilliantly for either high-end home gym users or PT's with garage-style gyms:
