Right about now we’re all getting pretty tired of our standard at-home workouts and we don’t necessarily have the funds to bring in the big guns like a Peloton or Mirror. What are we to do in order to keep the workout spark alive without breaking the bank? We’ve discovered a few lesser known exercise tools that are gaining a lot of momentum in the at-home workout world, and they may be just what you need to get out of your workout rut. Keep reading to check out what’s new in at-home workouts.
Booty Bands (Click Here)
If you’re looking to add a little perkiness to your bum (aren’t we all), look no further than Booty Bands. These bands are meant to add a little extra umph to your leg and butt exercises. The website linked above gives you a ton of options for the bands themselves, plus tutorials on how to use them. You can either master the bands on your own or get pro-level coaching to help you on your booty boosting journey. The brand is extremely community based, so if you’re looking for a team of people to help keep you accountable, we recommend checking Booty Bands out. The brand takes it one step further with options for meal plans that work with the exercises to optimize results. Booty Bands pretty much offers a choose-your-own-adventure style workout, allowing you to have as much or as little help as you’d like in your workouts. Oh, did we mention the 60 day set—with 4 bands, personal training, meal plan, and supportive community—is all for $50?
Bala Bangles (Click Here)
Just from a purely aesthetic standpoint, this exercise company makes us want to buy. Their branding and imagery are spot on for the millennial client—it reads more as a luxury fashion brand than a workout brand. The LA-based company makes stylish, colorful weights that can be worn on the wrists or ankles to add an additional level of difficulty to your everyday workout and increase results. They offer bangles weighing in at .5, 1, and 2 pounds. Add these on during walks, runs, cycling classes, or just days out running errands to add an additional level of difficulty to your activities. Plus, they’re very cute, so expect compliments.
Circle Weights (Click Here)
There are a few different distributors of circle weights, but our favorite is NuBells, who offer an attractive-looking weight and provide a long list of benefits for their product. The weights range anywhere from 5 to 50 pounds and can be used for a wide variety of exercises. We love a circle weight more than a regular weight because the weight gets distributed evenly and is a lot easier on our tendons and ligaments. If you have any wrist injuries, these weights are going to be great for you. Each set comes with two colorful and functional weights.
