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 Johnson
Price: $122 (available in two sizes and seven colors)
jump robe you can use to ~switch~ up your cardio routine because running every day can get a little, dare I say, boring.
Promising review: "Very good-quality materials are used, starting from the steel rope, which is encased in some sort of heavy-duty, slightly clear plastic to the smooth bearings. The finish of the rope is very slick and seems like it'll hold up a long time. If you grab the handle and spin it, the bearing will go 10 revolutions easily, speaking to the quality of the bearings. I've only had it a couple of weeks and it is holding up great. For $10, probably one of the best ropes you can get. And from what I read about the owners of the company and their warranty, seems like these folks will be more than happy to get a new rope over to you ASAP if your current one breaks for whatever reason." — Roman
strap to help you stretch because sometimes a workout means taking care of yourself and your muscles.
It also comes with a manual to help you use it.
Promising review: "This is an amazing product! I’m fairly flexible and have trouble getting a deep stretch, and this strap has really helped me out. 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 Schenk
portable elliptical perfect for anyone with a small home and a smaller budget. This costs less than a yearly gym membership and can fit basically anywhere in your house or apartment!
Promising review: "I absolutely love this little machine. It weighs about 25 pounds give or take. I bought it in January 2016 as part of my New Year's resolution to lose weight and exercise more. I love this thing!! I began parking my machine near the TV so that I can watch my favorite nighttime shows while I walked on the elliptical trainer for almost two hours. After about three months, I really got the hang of balancing while walking, so I began using 3-pound weights for both of my arms. I highly recommend this product because you have the ability to progress into a fitness plan!" — S_Mila
Price: $83.99+ (available in black, green, and orange)
pair of running shoes that will really ~step~ up your game.
Promising review: "If I could give these shoes five more stars, I would! I struggle with plantar fasciitis and shin splints. These shoes have amazing arch support. If you have high arches and are looking for a pair of running shoes that are not only cute but functional too, BUY THESE!!" — Skytron3000
Price: $59.95+ (available in sizes 6-11 and in 10 colors)
set of dumbbells to help you really feel like you're getting a good workout in at home. Warning: your arms may be sore the day after using these.
Promising review: "I've recently started working out at home since I can't do much walking outdoors here in Wisconsin during the winter. Rather than getting a gym membership, I decided to invest in some workout equipment. I've really gotten interested in using Jillian Michaels' workout videos and the one I use most of the time, Jillian Michaels — 30 Day Shred, requires hand weights.
I've owned these weights for only a couple weeks and I'm very happy with them! I've used them a number of times with my video and they work great. I feel the price is good for the quality and I will look at ordering others in the future as I get stronger! If you are looking for some hand weights, I recommend buying these!" —
Price: $28.49+ (available in four weight variations)
set of resistance bands to help stretch your go-to moves even more and make them do more work for you.
Promising review: "I love these! It’s a great workout and easy to travel with! You can bring them anywhere! It also comes with a paper with about 10 exercises to follow! I would recommend these to everyone and for sure people, like me, who travel for work and don't like using hotel gyms!" — Laurenn
Bosu Balance Trainer designed to help with your cardiovascular toning and flexibility because these are equally important parts of a good workout.
Promising review: "Omg...I love this. I just did 5k race with my son and his friends, it's called The Inflatable5k, meaning you run 3 miles while having inflatable obstacles to run, jump, or climb upon. I did it, but I have to say it was harder then I thought to balance on a balloon! I bought this wanting to improve, but I was not expecting all this FUN. I really love it! It's so easy on my joints — in fact when I use this in place of my step for aerobics DVDs, my knee pain is gone...for real! Unexpected bonus!!" — Kat
Price: $99+ (available in 30 variations)
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 Clark
exercise ball you can use to switch up your yoga routine or just when you're binging all episodes of Fleabag and need to feel like you're being productive with your life while you're watching.
Promising review: "I can't even begin to say enough good things about this stability ball! My back has gotten so much stronger since I started using it as an office chair for one or two hours per day! I work from home and my back had gotten incredibly weak, to the point that I could only walk 1/4 mile before the pain would get EXTREMELY bad and unbearable. After two weeks of using the ball, I can now walk 1 mile before pain begins — that is a HUGE improvement and has made an even bigger impact on my happiness and quality of life. I might add that it is REALLY fun to bounce on it! I having been having a ball with it (pardon the pun)." — Valerie
Price: $16.90+ (available in five sizes and six colors)
balance ball chair to turn your workday into a work-out day. This will force you to use your core to sit up straight and balance.
Promising review: "Sitting is killing us. Every week that headline is somewhere. This chair is so much more than a punchline on Portlandia. I have used it for over a year in my office job and I am an active 39-year-old male. Funny looks? Sure. But it's not for them, it's about my health and lower lumbar strength. For the first few weeks I had a 'regular' chair close by, to ease the transition. Now I wish that I could take my chair with me to client locations.
We slump so easily. I used to 'sit' with my chair rolled all the way under the desk leaned back so that my butt and shoulders were the only thing supported.
This balance chair forces you to sit up straight and support yourself. It forces you to pop up out of your seat. It will force you to strengthen your legs, back and shoulders. You will find yourself sitting more upright even when you are not using the chair. This chair is not for comfort. It is for you to get better." — Micah
Price: $69.98+ (available in nine colors)
space-saving treadmill you can fold up so you have room for guests to come over and visit without having to make them sit on the machine.
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 Customer
upper-body workout bar you can attach to to a doorway so you can get buff without having to leave your house.
Promising review: "I live by this iron gym. If you ever need a way to build confidence before embarrassing yourself at the gym with wrong form and two measly pull-ups, grind it out in your home and watch the improvement with this product. It’s affordable and very stable. I weigh about 205 lbs, and it holds my weight perfectly! I started out doing maybe two pull-ups and I practiced and I’m now doing 20 a clip. I’ve done it and you can too!" — Marcus
ab carver that comes with foam pads to protect you knees as you roll your way to a six-pack.
Promising review: "This is an amazing product. I bring it to the gym about twice a week, and I sweat every time I use it. This trains your abs, but it is also good for your arms and back. The assembly is simple, and the product is sturdy. This makes an EXCELLENT addition to any fitness regime." — None
Simply Fit board you'll be ~twisting and shouting~ about to everyone you see.
Promising review: "Love this board! I use every day and it is a great workout. It's transportable, durable, and highly effective! My abs look amazing! You can work cardio, core, upper body and lower body in a great variety of workouts on YouTube designed for the Simply Fit Board — can't give higher praise for this one!" — Heidi Hogan
Price: $23+ (available in four colors).
high-quality yoga mat with the perfect amount of cushion to keep you comfortable, but not so comfortable that 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: $75.99+ (available in 13 colors)
water-resistant arm band to conveniently stash your phone while you run because keeping it in your pocket just isn't a great option (as it bobs up and down as you go).
Promising review: "I purchased this armband six months ago and it has held up great! I use it everyday at the gym for cardio or lifting and it's amazing for running outdoors. I can run in light rain and feel confident that my phone is protected from any water. You can fit an iPhone 6s with a case in this armband perfectly and use the touch screen as normal. It allows you to plug headphones in, however I find it is most comfortable with wireless headphones. I highly recommend this armband for the price. It will last and won't fall apart on you!" — Amazon Customer
Price: $9.98 (available in three sizes and 10 colors)
slim running belt you can also stash your keys in—you'll never be locked out of your house again.
Promising review: "Love this belt! It is super comfortable and sturdy. I bought the belt to hold my iPhone 8 Plus and keys while I run. The iPhone 8 Plus is a tight squeeze but fits even in its OtterBox case. I love the hook to snap my keys on so they stay in place and I don’t have to worry about them falling out. I did not even find the need to flip the belt as my phone and keys felt secure and I wanted easier access to my phone. It fits snugly on my hip and the belt did not bounce around on my run even with my heavy phone inside. All in all super happy with this purchase. Worth every penny!" — Elise V. Ryding
Price: $25.32+ (available in sizes 2XS–2XL and in eight colors)
pair of wireless headphones that are waterproof, noise-cancelling, and work for up to nine hours so you can really focus on your workout.
Promising review: "These things have a 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 Tom
yoga mat strap designed to fit any yoga mat you have, so you can stop trying to figure out a comfortable way to carry one to and from class. This is the best way!!!!!
Promising review: "This is SO handy. I wish I had bought it sooner! It makes storing and transporting my mat way, way easier, and the strap itself is wide and doesn't hurt my shoulder." — Sarah Marie
Price: $5.99+ (available in two sizes and nine colors)
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: $12.98 (available in five styles)
Promising review: "I don't honestly know if there are enough words to express how much I love these gloves! They are seriously the most comfortable gloves in the world. They have awesome quality and construction, these will last a long time. I went with the 10 oz. ones and it was the perfect match. They fit snugly with wraps on, which is exactly how I like them. I use these regularly both on the bag and in sparring matches and love them for both! Can't beat them!!!" — Ryan
Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes 8 oz.–16 oz. and in eight colors)
sports bra lots of reviewers say is super supportive, which in turn will support you when it comes to finishing your workout strong.
Promising review: "I was out shopping all weekend for a good sports bra and couldn't find anything that fit me well and was supportive enough. I took a huge risk buying these but the reviews were great and I was not disappointed. I followed the size chart and it fit as expected. I am a nursing mom and I'm currently a size 36DD and ordered an extra large. I wear these for Beachbody workouts, so for some light cardio, jumping, and lifting these bras are perfect. There is enough compression where I feel like I'm not going to bounce all over the place but not so much that I feel squished. The fabric is very comfortable and the colors are beautiful...just like pictured! Plus, can you beat the value? 5 sports bras for $30! What a great purchase. I will definitely buy more in the future or recommend to someone in need." — mgillis Price: $9.98+ (available in sizes S-3X and in five variations)

foam roller to help relieve your sore muscles after an intense workout.
Promising review: "My chiropractor recommended I buy this for some daily routine back stretching to do at home. This product has been amazing for stretching and massaging sore muscles throughout my back and shoulders. I feel very supported by this roller and have had no issues with it thus far. I weigh 200 pounds and have yet to damage this roller after weeks of use. I am very pleased with this product. And at such a great price, I honestly can't find a single negative remark to note about it." — Luke Marrs
Price: $9.94+ (available in four sizes and six colors)
at-home gym station that's basically an all-in-one system to help you get 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 Mancuso
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 Hurt
Price: $33.53+ (available in 10 weight variations)
sliders (no, not the burger kind – ugh I wish) that engage your core even more and are so compact that they're easy to travel with.
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: $8.95+ (available in five colors)
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." — Oahoosier
Price: $19.95 (available in sizes XXS-XL)
BlenderBottle to help mix protein shakes, supplements, and smoothies.
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. I will definitely be purchasing a few more for my other supplement needs while training." — Kaylin Hines
Price: $9.99+ (available in 20 colors)
