The summer is slowly drawing to a close, so hopefully you haven't waited until now to start working on your dream beach body.
For those of you who've procrastinated far too long and still think that a full day of exercise includes dozens of dumbbells and a pull-up bar, here's a few pieces of equipment that just might change how you look at getting in shape.
Titan T1 Gym
If you want to go the all-in-one home gym route, you can't do much better than the new T1. The intimidating mass of metal and pulleys is designed to fit in rooms as small as 9' x 13' making it a perfect candidate for the garage or an unused bonus room.
This can provide you with over 50 exercises to ensure that you wake up the next day unable to move a single muscle, and it can support up to 800 pounds of weights. Although at that point you may be better off just dead-lifting cars.
If you can't make it to the gym on a regular basis and are wary of investing in multiple sets of barbells, weights and so forth, a complete gym system like this is a good space-saving alternative.
Powerblock adjustable dumbbells
Most exercise-equipment companies have some form of adjustable dumbbell set in their lineup these days, but Powerblock is one of the originals and still makes some of the best. The system replaces traditional large, cluttered sets of dumbbells of all sizes with one set, allowing you to select what weight you'd like to work with.
