About Me

Wes McDermott aka theHomeGymCritic

What’s up guys! I’m Wes. I’m the only editor here at thehomegymcritic.com. I’m just your average guy who enjoys working out and I have been for over 10 years. With this site I hope to help people just like you make better buying decisions when it comes to purchasing equipment for working out at home.


What special qualifications do you have, and why should I listen to you?

None! I’m not a personal trainer, nor am I one of those fitness gurus!! I am however a keen fitness enthusiast who’s tried out 100’s of pieces of gym equipment over the years. I currently work for an exercise equipment distributor, so this puts me in a very lucky position as I get the chance to test out new pieces of equipment on a daily basis. After testing hundreds of home gyms, ellipticals, and treadmills, I think it’s safe to say that I know what makes a great piece of equipment a great piece of equipment!


What can I hope to find here at thehomegymcritic.com?

As well as in-depth reviews on several different types of home gym equipment, readers are encouraged to give their reviews too. Also, to get you some of the best deals available on any of the equipment reviewed, I provide a price comparison tool that shows the best prices for a particular piece of equipment, and it’s updated daily!! The best place to start if you’re on the look out for a home gym would be my home gym comparison chart. Go there to view home gyms by price, floor space, ratings, warranty and more.

If you have any questions about a particular piece of equipment or would like me to review something just give me a shout, my email address is wes { at } the home gym critic dot com (ignore any spaces and obviously replace { at } with @ and dot with .) Thanks for not spamming! 😀

All the best,
Wes – a.k.a. the Home Gym Critic
