You only have to look around at the Sunday car boot sales to see the most common pieces of exercise equipment. Its usually the smaller items such as mini steppers, thigh trainers, ab rollers and the like. Something cheaply made and sold in the thousands with marketing designed to make you think it will turn you into a supermodel. Hmm, well, it doesn't and this is why they are now at the outdoor sale. If however you're asking what equipment is succesfully used at home then you will mostly find exercise bikes, cross trainers, treadmills and rowing machines - pick one of these, add in a pair of dumbbells and you could have all you need for an effective routine.
