Many people wonder if you can get a good workout at home because it’s not always possible to get to the gym. The answer is, YES. If you are more of a homebody, you can transform your living space into a toning and weight loss fitness center.
Having the right “equipment” is essential, so we compiled a few items that will give you an opportunity for a full-body workout no matter what day or time it is.
Bala Bangles Fully Adjustable Wearable Wrist & Ankle Weights
These adjustable wrist and ankle weights are great for days we feel like doing an at-home workout video (or two). And hey, sometimes we even wear them when we’re cleaning the house.
Superlite Yoga and Pilates Travel Mat
When hunting for a workout mat, we wanted something that could be easily rolled up for storage. The Manduka Superlite Yoga and Pilates Travel Mat is perfect for this. We like how it can conveniently fold up like a towel, therefore when you are done working out, your house is easily turned back to home.
If you like to use 12-pound weights for your at-home workouts, but also want some lighter ones for different workout needs, we would recommend this AmazonBasics Dumbbell. They are the perfect basic gym essential, and the fact that they take up little square footage means you can store the set easily!
We especially love resistance loops for warm-ups and stretching! They’re a great way to activate your nervous system and get your muscles ready for work.
They can also be used in side steps, squats, or pull aparts.
321 Strong Foam Roller
This Strong Foam Roller is our savior after a grueling session; it helps relieve tight muscles, giving us enough of a boost to keep going with workout routines the rest of the week.
GYMENIST Kettlebell Fitness Iron Weights
We just started using the new kettlebell weights during certain workouts, especially squats. If you haven’t tried it yet, these things are perfect for engaging your entire body! These weights range from 5 to 50 lbs, but if you’re a beginner, go with a lower range that can be versatile enough for most moves.
