1. An upper-body workout bar you can attach to to a doorway so you can get swole without having to leave your house.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I don't have the sturdiest door frames, but it still hangs well and is completely steady. I hung it up and use it every time I walk through the doorway. On the first day, I couldn't even do a full proper pull-up. It's incredible how keeping at it helps you improve (as silly as that sounds). It's helped so much with my upper-body strength, but it doesn't take time out of my day like a normal workout does." —Deanna R.

Price: $25.53

2. A Fitbit that tracks your heart rate and sleep patterns to help you maximize your workouts. You can also receive calls, texts, and calendar notifications on it.

Promising review: "It's been about six months, and I still love it. I go to the gym and track my workouts. It's nice to be able to see your heart rate zones while working out. I also use this to track my runs. It's probably not as accurate for running as the distance is a little varied sometimes even though I run the same route, but it's still helpful tracking the time, heart rate, and pace. It can also track your golf rounds, which is awesome. Fitbit updates the software every now and then so you always get improvements and the most up to date functionality. I would recommend this product." —Sam JohnsonPrice: $129.95 (available in six colors)

The loops really help to be able to manipulate it to fit your needs and the type of stretch you’re working on. And the manual is helpful as well. I highly recommended it." —Holly SchenkPrice: $15.95

4. A foam roller to help relieve your sore muscles after an intense workout.

Promising review: "This gives you amazing results! I was upping my running game and started to really get tense muscles in my left leg. I ordered this based on all the reviews. When it finally arrived, I tested it out immediately after a long run. I followed the instructions that came with the unit and WOW! It really works! The tension was immediately gone. So, tried it out over several days of running and same results. I highly recommend this roller." —SABellPrice: $34.95+ (available in five colors)

Promising review: "I love this little set. It's small enough to not get in the way in my small apartment but colorful enough that it gets my attention. I wanted to keep some weight around since I hate going to the gym, and figured if I see it while watching TV, I would pick it up and work out a little.

8. Pushup stands that rotate as you use them to engage more of your muscles. But watch out, your shirts might stop fitting because you'll be as jacked as Superman.

Promising review: "I did pushups the regular way for years. I hurt my wrist in an unrelated accident, and the residual pain prevented me from being able to do pushups the regular way. I tried the Perfect Pushup at my gym, and I fell in love right away. I could resume pushups without wrist pain. Then to top it off, the Perfect Pushup enhanced my workout so much. The added definition to my chest, arms and core are so VERY noticeable. You must try them!!!" —Wayne E ClarkPrice: $24.99

Just don't forget about it when you fold it up — out of sight, out of mind is a real thing!Promising review: "It’s a great treadmill! The price is amazing, and it works just as well as any other treadmills I have used at the gym. The only negative thing is that it has a manual incline, but you get used to it. :)" —Amazon CustomerPrice: $309

11. A high-quality yoga mat with the perfect amount of cushion to keep you comfortable but not so comfortable you want to fall asleep during your practice.

Promising review: "I love, love, love this mat! We've had quite a few cheap mats, and they don't even compare to this one. It's dense but so comfortable. It's well worth the money. I have a Yogitoes big towel to put over it for hot yoga but really don't need it. I love the mat with or without the towel. I'm spoiled now and will never go back to the cheap mats again." —Kim P.Price: $57+ (available in 14 colors)

Promising review: "These things have the battery like a stallion. I charge them maybe once every 1.5 weeks, and I work out seven days a week with music. They're gym-friendly and just awesome. The ONLY thing that sucks is when you get a low-battery warning, you've got about two minutes left." —Bob TomPrice: $19.95+ (available in black/red and black/gray)

13. An 11-piece resistance band set you can mix and match to customize your workout and maximize your results.

Promising review: "About three months ago, I had shoulder surgery, and when I was able to start physical therapy, this product was a lifesaver! It helped me regain my range of motion, and the different tension levels were great to help advance and make me stronger. Since then, I've been using this product instead of going to the gym and paying a pricey membership fee. This product is great, and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to workout anywhere, anytime." —Amir M.Price: $20.98

14. A sports bra lots of reviewers say is super supportive, which in turn will support you to finish your workout strong.

Promising review: "I love these bras! I am a 38DD so finding a bra to support me every day, let alone at the gym, is very difficult. I love the way they fit. These bras are very comfortable and hold my breasts in during cardio when they seem to move the most without suffocating them. They wash well — their color hasn't faded (regular wash, low heat in the dryer), and the ability to remove the padding makes it much easier to put the pads back in place after drying. Glad I bought these!" —ReceyKPrice: $12.99+ (available in sizes S-3X and in 21 color and number variations)Read more about how people with big boobs love these sports bras here.

15. An at-home gym station that's basically an all-in-one system to help you get your in the best shape of your life.

Promising review: "This product is unbelievable! For the money, you just can't beat it! It's tough to find time in the day to go to the gym, so I do this for half an hour every morning (very intense sessions). It gives you a great workout. It hits all major areas, shoulders, biceps/triceps, and chest. It's amazing and way less expensive than the one Chuck Norris tries to sell for $600!" —Jeffrey MancusoPrice: $128

16. A basic medicine ball to help develop your core strength, plus your balance and coordination — just don't try to dunk it.

Promising review: "The first thing I love about this one is the price. I mean, compare it with other ones and the difference is almost none! I have been using it with some dumbbells at home, and the results are amazing. With this medicine ball, I can do a lot of exercises, and the weight is heavy enough to make you sweat and work those muscle. Also, the rough texture ensures your hands don't slip." —David HurtPrice: $26+ (available in 4, 6, 8, 10,12, 14, 15, 16, 18, and 20 pounds)

17. Some sliders (no, not the burger kind, ugh I wish) that engage your core even more and are so compact they're easy to travel with.

amazon.com

Promising review: "I love these! They are dual-sided so I can use them on carpet and hard flooring. I haven't tried it out on any sensitive surfaces that could scratch wood floors, but the texture is smooth, and I don't foresee any issues. They are large enough for my feet and hands, but not too large to throw in a suitcase when I travel. I like that they are light weight, but sturdy. I've only had them a limited amount of time, but so far, so good!" —al

Price: $8+ (available in five colors)

18. Weightlifting gloves with wrist wraps, ventilation, and full palm protection so you can focus on lifting and not on destroying your hands.

Promising review: "I’ve probably had 20 pairs of lifting gloves in my life, but these are HANDS DOWN the best I’ve ever owned. My gloves used to be wet with sweat and then stink. Now not only do my gloves stay dry and not smell, but my hands are dry. I’m not sure if it says machine washable, but it does well in the washing machine as well." —OahoosierPrice: $19.95 (available in sizes XS-L)

Promising review: "This is a great little shaker cup. I've used it daily since it arrived. It hasn't leaked ever. It's easy to clean, and there's no plastic taste.
