Home Exercise Equipment: 4 Easy-to-Make Designs

January 3rd, 2017

Today building homemade exercise devices has become a very viable option, especially for those who have free time and truly care about their fitness. The manufacture of home equipment to keep us in shape can sometimes generate many doubts with regard to its construction.

My plan is to share the appliances I currently have made in my house, which will detail the process in this article along with the video where I got the idea. You’re not going to have to build it from scratch here we’ll give you a guide on how to get started. You just have to have the materials we’ll tell you.

I intend to build many more and I will be constantly updating this article with new appliances for home gym if that’s what you require.

Finally I have to say that I am not a construction expert and I’m far from it, I share devices for home exercise that I use and helps me wonders , but not without saying that you should build your own risk .

The designs of these home exercise devices can be improved as per your needs, I am sure you can make many better designs.



I’ve always wanted one of these pull-up bars, because it is my understanding that it is one of the best gadgets for home exercise , but I do not much like the idea of making holes in the wall or ceiling. I had also seen some pieces that can be adapted to the doors or cabinets, but I am still very suspicious of them, I really did not want to ruin the wood or the frame. I finally decided to do mine by using a beam in my basement, after much thinking and seeing different models I had the opportunity to create a pull-up bar that required no punching


he first thing I did was to make a small flat, later I decided to buy 1 ¼ galvanized steel pipes for their resistance but you can also use a 1 inch pipe to save a little money.

  • 8 cubits of 90 degrees.
  • 1 tube of 18 “
  • 2 tubes of 10 “
  • 2 tubes of 6 “
  • 2 4 “tubes – depending on the depth of the beam
  • 2 tubes of 3 “
  • Insulating tape
  • A pipe wrench or something to make a lever


It should be fairly easy to assemble after seeing these images, but here we will give you some advice if you need to.

The 18-inch tube is the part where you’re going to catch – you must wrap it with something that dampens and is not slippery, for which I use duct tape. If you think of something that works best for this purpose, go ahead and give it a try.

The 10-inch tube is the one that will provide lift that helps to overcome the beam

The 6-inch tube will have the back-up or bracket function that will go to the opposite side of the pull-up bar.

The 4-inch pipe will form part of the pipe that is on the top of the beam. (This may vary depending on the size of the beam)

The 3 “tube is the distance between the pull-up bar and the backrest to the wall.

Certainly you have a very good exercise routines because it is one of the best gadgets for home exercise. These pipes fit easily, how difficult it will be to tighten them, for which you will have to use a great physical force … I recommend you use a key, to get better leverage.

If you do not have any problem in making holes to your wall or ceiling here we show you a video of how to make one, although it is very didactic in English.

The materials you will need are:
2 support tubes
1 tube grip
2 bends
2 Brackets
