Home Gym Ideas: Best Compact Workout Bench Plus Dip Station

Our Home Gym ideas keep it simple for you. Two compact and affordable workout benches plus a sweet dip and pull-up station. Pick one or grab all three. Your home gym is now complete!


We’ve recommended treadmills, ellipticals, and dumbbells for your home gym in our Fitness Hub, but ultimately we favor bodyweight exercises. These three home gym ideas allow you to put your body to the test with both leg and upper body exercises. Bring the gym into your home and let that expensive membership go. Two workout benches and one dip station allow for versatility and variety in your workouts.

Start by grabbing a simple fitness bench. Then add in the dip and pull-up station. Finally, complete your gym with a utility weight bench that allows for multiple exercises. Do it all on your time, without leaving the house. How great is that!?
