Not only will your legs get a solid workout, but with the attached exercise arms, you can give your arms some exercise too.

Elliptical Machine

An elliptical machine is always an excellent choice no matter what age or fitness level you’re in. Unlike the more traditional treadmill, the elliptical machine can also help work your arms out while moving the handles back-and-forth.

It also comes with oversized foot pedals that can fit everyone’s foot size, allowing you to work up a good sweat in relative comfort and safety.






Dumbbell free weights are a must have for any serious home gym set-up. They’re really the most versatile piece of equipment you can own, and are a solid choice if you have limited space. Also, there are a wide array of fitness exercises that you can perform with dumbbells. You can strengthen both your upper and lower body, and also ensure that any strength imbalance is minimized and/or corrected.

Marcy offers many types of dumbbells at various weights. For our more green-minded customers, we have the  Eco Hex Dumbbells series that are made with an environmentally safe process that negates any production of greenhouse gases.


Smith Cage Machine


If you’re looking for equipment that can do it all, a Smith Cage Machine is an essential piece of equipment for your home gym. Marcy offers this important, all-in-one piece of hardware, and the value it can provide to your health and fitness is tremendous. our Marcy Smith Cage System MD-9010G allows you to perform a large variety of exercises and fitness routines.

With a smith machine you can work your arms, chest, back, and legs out, so we’re talking total body workouts here. Or, you can choose to focus on a particular muscle group during a workout. Another benefit of the Smith Cage Machine is its safety features. For instance, the chest press bar is married to a set of guide rods that will only allow the bar to move up or down, and if you’re having a hard time, you just have to twist the bar and it will latch right onto the frame, halting its movement. With all that this machine offers, you’ll certainly get the most out of your fitness investment here.
