Besides teaching us the value of self-care and inspiring us to channel our inner #shefs, life under lockdown has also reminded many of us to take better care of our health and fitness. Thanks to the work-from-home scheme, even those who didn’t use to have time for the gym have finally found the time to add exercise to their daily routine.
At first, I was set on making do with what little gym equipment I had and patiently waiting for gyms to reopen. But as social distancing and other precautionary measures have become more important, the idea of returning to the gym (or the “real world”, for that matter) makes me a little uneasy. Needless to say, I have no plans of returning to the gym for the time being.
If you feel the same, then it’s probably time to start putting together a home gym! Below, we share a few places where you can order home gym equipment online. What’s more, some of them will even deliver your orders straight to your doorstep — and even assemble them if needed!
1. PlayHard Fitness
PlayHard Fitness easily wins as one of the top-mentioned gym equipment brands on Instagram this quarantine! Countless gym buffs can vouch for their excellent quality and service. A lot of their equipment is admittedly on the pricier side, but you’ll certainly get what you pay for. If you’re serious about setting up a commercial-quality home gym, then be sure to check out this brand for your power racks, Olympic bars, bumper plates, and more!
PlayHard Fitness delivers nationwide! For Metro Manila orders, deliveries are made via LalaMove or Transportify. Provincial orders are shipped via Airship Express for small items; large items may be picked up via Lalamove or Transportify for those in Luzon, and via Capex Cargo for those in Visayas and Mindanao.
This French sporting goods retailer is well-loved for making high quality fitness equipment available at reasonable prices. From home gym necessities like yoga mats, dumbbells, benches and the like, to equipment for sports such as football, basketball, and volleyball — Decathlon’s got you covered!
You can make your purchases in-store, or opt for their ‘click and collect’ (store pick-up) alternative. Decathlon also delivers to select areas around Metro Manila, Greater Manila, and provincial areas.
3. Iron Supply
For the ultimate customer experience, Iron Supply is an excellent choice. Not just a go-to for fitness equipment, they also double as a private training facility.

But that’s not the only reason you should check out Iron Supply! As someone who’s scoured the web for all the best prices for my home gym equipment, I was very pleased to find that this particular store’s prices are on the more reasonable end of the spectrum. To be specific, their hex dumbbells are the most affordable I’ve encountered online!
