Joe Rogan’s fitness and wellness routine has caught the eye of many, with his unique approach to health. Between his MMA training and infrared sauna use, the 50-something year old is in better health than ever before. Rogan’s home gym is primarily composed of a variety of free weights, weight benches, functional trainers, and other strength training equipment, as well as a float tank and of course his infrared sauna.
If you’re looking to create a gym in your own home that would make Rogan proud, keep reading for our suggestions.
Strength training equipment will be a vital part of your gym setup if you’re looking to replicate Joe Rogan’s home gym. Here’s our top picks:
A squat rack should function as the centerpiece of your home gym. For this, we recommend the Body-Solid SPR1000 Power Rack. This single piece of equipment can be used to perform squats, pull-ups, presses, hang work, and with the various accessories that are available (which Rogan also takes advantage of) the number of workouts you can do increases dramatically.
In the corner of Joe Rogan’s home gym also features a lat pull down machine from Rogue Fitness. This machine is ideal for performing lat pulldown’s, seated rows, tricep extensions, cable curls, and more. Fitness bands can easily be attached to the weight stack to add accommodating resistance and due to its weight, doesn’t have to be bolted down. Shop lat pulldown machines here.
Every quality home gym needs a barbell, and Rogan’s gym is no exception. At Expert Fitness Supply we have a variety of barbells available for sale. Barbells are an ideal piece of workout equipment because they are versatile and can be used for a wide variety of workouts.
An adjustable bench is another piece of equipment found in Rogan’s home gym. This is because it is an excellent piece of equipment for those wanting to build upper body strength. In addition to offering a lot of versatility via angle adjustments, an adjustable bench can also be used for decline movements such as decline sit-ups and decline presses.
Rogan’s home gym also features a wide assortment of free weights including dumbbells and kettlebells. Dumbbells and kettlebells can be used to load a variety of movements for both the upper body and lower body. In addition to conventional movements, dumbbells can be loaded onto a belt to weight pull-ups and dips as well used for snatches and core exercises.
Strength equipment is a great addition to any home gym, while Rogan’s gym is primarily filled with strength equipment, we’re including some cardio equipment that will complement your strength workouts. If you’re not partaking in a cardiovascular activity such as MMA training as Rogan does, consider adding one or two pieces of cardio equipment to your home gym.
A non-motorized, or a curved treadmill is a treadmill that has no motors to propel the belt, but instead, the belt runs on a track filled with bearings and your legs propel it forward. We have a couple of motorless treadmills available for sale that are perfect additions to your gym. While these treadmills have a small learning curve, once learned, they offer an amazing workout. Learn more about the benefits of a non-motorized treadmill here.
A rowing machine offers a full body workout because both your upper and lower body are required to complete a rowing stroke. Unlike other exercise equipment where you can “cheat” and not utilize your upper body, like on an elliptical, for example, there’s no skipping out on utilizing your arms. Here’s the top water rowers we recommend.
It’s no secret that Rogan is a fan of infrared saunas. Not only has he discussed it on his podcast, but he also frequently posts pictures of himself using it on his Instagram posts. While Rogan has a room built into his gym for his sauna, there are multiple infrared saunas available for sale on our website that are ideal for homeowners.
