WB GuideList Top 10 Workout Equipment featured on WOMANBOSS
Our favorite workout equipment finds.

It’s no surprise that some of our routines pre-covid have changed drastically. If you are someone like me, going to my local gym was a regular occurrence. Having a gym so close to my apartment made it easy for me to pop in on my way home from work. When I was deemed to work from home back in March, and all the gyms closed in my area I was left wondering how to get a work out in, and where. I took to the internet to find home workout equipment that fit my budget, and my lack of space. Here’s what I found and incorporated into my daily routine... 

WWWW Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat
$31.60

This Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat is such a life saver. The bottom is a non-slip material that works so well on the hardwood floor of my workout space. I am able to bring it out on my deck as well and its feels super secure. The mat is extra-long and wide so I can easily use it comfortably. Clean up with a damp cloth is really convenient after working out and it even comes with a carrying strap so I can take it on the go!

Walito Resistance Bands
$16.99

The Walito Resistance Bands has easily become one of my favorite purchases over the past few months. I have always found it hard to find bands that stay on my legs, and these don’t budge! This pack comes with 3 different levels of resistance and are machine-washable which is super convenient. They even come with a breathable carrying case to throw in your workout bag or hang in your closet!

Tangram Smart Rope Rookie
$39.95

I’ve found a lack of cardio is so common when you are working from home and sitting all day. In between calls and when I’m needing a little boost, I have whipped out my Smart Rope Rookie for a quick cardio sesh. The jump rope connects to the mobile app and my apple watch so I can track my progress and learn more about my movement. You can unlock awards on the app, see your calories burned and so many other awesome features.

Hydrate Spark 3 Water Bottle
$59.95

While making sure I am getting my exercise in is super important, fitting enough water into my day is equally as imperative! It’s said that you need to consume half of your body weight in water a day to stay properly hydrated. That does not sound half as intimidating when you have the Spark 3 Water Bottle in your fridge! The water bottle will light up and remind you to drink as its paired with your smart watch/phone. This has helped me so much on my path to lifestyle changes.

Yes4All Vinyl Coated Kettlebells
$29.95

Being that it’s a really good idea to strength train to define your body and target specific muscle groups, I knew that I needed to start diving into actual weights. Traditional gyms have rows and rows of dumbbells and bars, so I knew this was going to be difficult with the limited amount of space and overall budget I am working with. These kettlebells are small, and can fit right under my bed. I am able to whip them out for my workout and then hide them away when it’s complete. They have different weight options, ranging from 5lbs to 50lbs and multiple cute colors! Most of my workouts include simple weights and this has been such a great addition to my workout routine.

Yes4All Balance Board
$18.99

One of my personal fitness goals is to work on my core strength. Core strength is so important because it directly aids in perfecting your form for so many other workouts. Accommodating for my lack of space, this balance board is such an amazing find! It helps me improve my core strength, posture, it enhances coordination, my sense of balance and visual sense.

Gaiam Essentials Aerobic Stepper Bench
$29.99

What’s better than a piece of workout gear that can double for a kitchen step stool?! I have been finding so many great workouts that require stairs, which never was a problem when I was living in NYC! Now that I moved, and am trying to stay inside of my apartment, I have found the perfect stepper that matches my room theme, and can slide right under my bed! This is the perfect light weight stepper to enhance my cardio days by getting my heart rate up.

321 STRONG Foam Roller
$26.99

As much as I dread working out sometimes, it’s the days after my workout that I dread a little more! Sore muscles are the worst but this foam roller has been helping me so much. After a hard workout I take the last 5 minutes to roll out my body and especially target the muscles I used during that session. I can’t tell you how loose and stretched my body feels after a bit of foam rolling. As a college athlete, my trainers always stressed how important the “after care” was post workout. This roller is small enough to fit under my bed with my other equipment and is conveniently there anytime I need it.

HAI+ Ab Roller Wheel
$19.99

One of my favorite deals I found recently has been this ab wheel that also comes with a mat and a jump rope. Its small enough for me to throw in my bag when I want to run to my local park for a workout and also for storage in my apartment. This has helped my core strength tremendously and is a no-brainer if you’re looking to target your stomach and abs for toning purposes.

Sweet Sweat Waist Trimmer
$18.44

Okay, so I was so skeptical of these waist bands at first because I’ve seen them all over IG but never tried one. I decided to give it a try and WOW! I thought it would be super uncomfortable and restricting at first but it was made of a super soft material and fit perfectly. I use it when I am working on abs specifically and on my cardio days.  It triples the amount of sweat I produce which leads to a higher burn! You can pair it with the Sweet Sweat lotion before putting it on to enhance the performance as well!
