We've more than got used to working out from home over the last two years so why not give your home gym a bit of an upgrade?

With the cost of living continuing to rise, gym memberships often become a monthly expense that we simply can't afford. 

Some membership packages cost in excess of £1000 a year including the likes of annual packages from David Lloyd and Virgin Active Gyms.

One way to reduce the costs is to create your own workout space from home and OnBuy.com is on hand to show us how.
