    1. A copy of Ring Fit Adventure for your Nintendo Switch that'll have you exploring a fantasy world, defeating enemies, AND working up a sweat. If you love gains and gaming, this will probably be right up your alley.

    2. A set of Peach Bands resistance bands that'll help you get the booty of your dreams without having to hip thrust hundreds of pounds at the gym. Just turn the volume up on your fave feel-good playlist and get to squatting.

    3. Or, if you prefer plastic over fabric, this set of resistance bands that won't snap under the pressure of your powerful gluteus maximus. It comes with an exercise guide so you won't have to do any Googling if you're a newbie.

    4. A pair of dual-sided core sliders that can be used on both carpet and hardwood and will make your abs work harder than ever before. Whether you want to amp up your mountain climbers, add some extra spice to a glute bridge, or just make your planks a bit tricker, these are sure to come in handy.

    5. A pair of adjustable dumbbells if curls, rows, and RDLs are your jam when it comes to working out. They can be levelled up from five to 52 pounds so you won't have to keep adding new ones to your collection as your guns grow.

    6. Or an adjustable kettlebell that you can use for all your twists, pulls, and presses. It can be amped up from eight pounds all the way to 40 pounds so you can customize the weight to the exercise you're doing.

    7. An Apple Watch SE that'll let you know when you need to stand, track how much exercise you've done over the course of your day, and help you set and reach fitness goals. And, if you add the fitness+ app, you'll have access to at-home classes (the videos will play on your phone and your watch will automatically start tracking).

    8. A Schwinn stationary bike that'll save you from spending all your hard-earned money on spin classes (it me). It's designed to work with Peloton and Zwift apps so you can get the benefit of in-person training seshes without paying costly gym fees.

    9. An instructional yoga mat because you could use a good stretch, but don't know a crow pose from a pigeon pose (trust me, they're very different). It'll walk you through every posture so you can do a full class without turning to a screen for help.

    10. Or a deck of user-friendly yoga healing cards that'll help you wind down after your workout. They include pictures and detailed instructions so you won't accidentally injure yourself trying to find your way into a pose.

    11. A sturdy bike stand that'll turn your outdoor bike into an indoor bike so you can get in a workout without freezing your tush off. You'll be able to adjust the resistance from your handlebars, saving you from getting off your bike and making changes mid-workout.

    12. A tiny pilates ball that you can use to assist your crunches or add an extra challenge to hip thrusts and pulses. It's made of non-slip material so you won't need to worry about it sliding around during trickier exercises.

    13. A NordicTrack rower with 26 resistance levels that'll help you get your cardio in without even going outside. It has a touchscreen that you can use to stream classes on and off the machine.

    14. A pair of weighted Bala bands that'll make any workout a little tougher. Because they can be strapped to your wrists or ankles, you won’t have to cling to them with sweaty palms (like you would with regular free weights).

    15. A pair of push-up blocks that'll activate even more muscles in your arms and strengthen your grip. Reviewers say they're great for people who get wrist pains when they do planks and mountain climbers with flat palms.

    16. An Echelon mirror that'll magically transform from a selfie spot to a training system with a touch of the screen. It'll allow you to access hundreds of on-demand classes that cover everything from strength training to meditation.

    17. A laundry punching bag that'll give you a place to store your dirty socks and practice your jabs and uppercuts. It's made of a durable canvas material that won't show wear and tear after it's been bopped and bashed around.

    18. An ab wheel that'll make your core work harder than it ever has before. It comes with a knee pad that you can use to add some extra cushioning when your yoga mat just isn't enough (it'll come in handy for vinyasas, too!).

    19. A desk bike if you don't have space for a home gym AND a home office. The bike can be adjusted to perfectly fit your frame and the desktop can be tilted to whatever angle suits you best.

    20. A pair of Apple AirPods Pro so you can sail through your burpees without messing hearing your next door neighbours argue. They'll last for nearly five hours on a single charge, meaning they won't die on you in the middle of a workout.

    21. A pull-up bar that you can attach to your door frame so you won't have to move any of your furniture around. You can also flip it around and use it on the floor if you want to elevate your planks and push ups.

    22. A cork block that you can use to add ease or challenge to your yoga poses. You can also use it to make balancing workouts more difficult, like staggered squats and lunge kicks.

    23. A pack of workout cards that'll give you 52 bodyweight exercises to try so you won't have to fill your shoebox of an apartment with equipment. Each card has a QR code that'll lead you to an instructional video so you won't risk injury.

    24. A set of tube-style resistance bands with handles that can be used for curls, rows, presses, and just about any other exercise. Reviewers love that they give them a full-body workout without needing any heavy equipment.

    25. And lastly, a yoga ball that you can hide in plain sight because it looks like a chic piece of furniture. It can also double as an office chair if you want to improve your posture and work on your balance at the same time.
