These are the typical items I would recommend if you have no or little knowledge of home fitness equipment. Now if you already have equipment, e.g., weight bench, treadmill, free weights, you may not need the above options. This list is comprised of the items one might use to start a home gym with space efficiency and mobility (you can easily take your resistance bands on vacation or a business trip) in mind. If you have concerns or questions about more advanced equipment, please contact me at your leisure.
