    40 Things That Might Make You (*Gulp*) Excited For Your Next At-Home Workout

    I'm already sweating.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI โ€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A set of Burlybands because it's time we ditch the dollar store hair ties and look to greener pastures. These won't stretch out, won't break after that extra wrap, and genuinely stay in place, plus they feature a seamless design that won't damage your hair (...unlike the one you're currently sporting on your wrist).,

    Promising review: "They're worth every dollar! It's not quite like any other hair tie I've seen before. It's really thick, very expandable, and super durable. I have thick, coarse, nappy, natural, African American hair and these certainly do the job! I don't care what type of hair you have or how much of it you got because these will do the job. And they won't rip out your hair while doing it." โ€”Gracey

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $10.99.

    2. Ultraboost running sneakers crafted with a sock-like fit that guarantees comfort straight outta the box. These provide a ton of cushiony bounce, making 'em perfect for intense jogs or casual strolls alike.

    the ash pearl and hazy rose sneakers

    Promising review: "I have sensitive feet that blister with any new shoe, even sandals. With the ultraboost 21, I haven't had any issues since I first put them on. They're lightweight, incredibly comfortable, and look great too. Hands down the best shoe purchase I've ever made." โ€”TSF17

    Get it from Adidas for $180 (available in sizes 5-11 and in 17 colors).

    3. TSLA leggings comparable to bottoms from much more expensive brands. Not only are these high-waisted leggings super comfortable, but they've also got pockets and aren't see-through โ€” which means you can wear more cropped tops and feel totally at ease knowing the world is unaware of what color your underwear is.


    Promising review: "I never take the time to write reviews and I order off Amazon all the time. I am a Lululemon fanatic and particularly love the Align pant (which retails for $85+) but can't afford or rationalize buying tons of them. I'm always on the hunt for a good yoga pant and I found these the other day and ordered them in size small, and these remind me of the Align pant so much! They are cut almost identical, but the fabric is a little stiffer. This isn't a bad thing; the Align pant is almost too buttery soft and it pills and gets caught on everything. There is slight compression with these and mine aren't see-through (even when squatting). I love love love these and am going to order several more. I actually kinda want to cry thinking about how much money I wasted on the pants at when these are an excellent substitute for a fraction of the cost." โ€”Ariel Parker

    Get them from Amazon for $8.98+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 43 colors).

    4. A high-density foam roller that provides the perfect post-workout massage (it helps increase circulation, aka no ๐Ÿ‘ more ๐Ÿ‘ soreness ๐Ÿ‘). It's also great at relieving I-sit-all-day muscle stiffness that results in an achey back and legs.

    model using glitter pink foam roller

    Promising review: "I have been trying to incorporate more stretching in my life after feeling more back pain and joint stiffness. I work at a computer all day and when I get up to move, it's not so pretty. LOL. Getting used to the roller will definitely take some time. To me, it was a good pain. The kind of pain you get when you are getting a deep massage. It's a relief knowing that you are rolling out those sore muscles and knots. I especially like when I can feel and hear the little cracks down my spine!" โ€”Muddy

    Get it from Amazon for $10.49 (available in four sizes and seven colors).

    5. Anti-slip resistance bands for increasing the difficulty level of your favorite strength exercises. Add these to something as simple as, say, a squat and prepare to feel *all* of your muscles engage. Muscles you probably didn't know you had! Okay, I'm making you nervous. I'll stop.

    Promising review: "I can NEVER go back to my other resistance bands after using these. My BUTT and thighs KILL me after I use this product (but that's a good thing, I promise). I use resistance bands daily in my workouts, and I love the fact that these bands don't bunch up, twist, and hurt my legs/thighs. Plus, they really are slip-resistant and stay on." โ€”Kori Linae Carothers

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $24.99.

    6. Compression socks here to improve your outdoor running game by promoting circulation and increasing blood flow. TLDR; These help prevent leg soreness, cramping, *and* use a moisture-wicking fabric that your sweaty feet will love.

    Not a runner? Not a problem. Reviewers also swear that these socks are amazing for anyone who works on their feet all day.

    Promising review: "Iโ€™ve been wearing compression socks to work for years and loved them, but these are the first pairs of compression socks Iโ€™ve tried for running. I had been having some leg cramping on my long runs so I decided to try them and will never go back to short athletic socks again. I love the lack of fatigue I get from the pressure from these socks and the decrease of post-run pain. I will be wearing these when I cross the finish line at my first marathon this October!" โ€”jamerz82

    Get them from Amazon for $7.95+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 13 colors).

    7. A BPA-free Nalgene water bottle with a screw-top lid, dishwasher-safe plastic, and etched-in measurements that let you keep track of exactly how much water you've sipped. This acts as a subtle reminder to stay hydrated, folks. / Via @nalgene, Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I've been using this water bottle daily for about five weeks now since my purchase and I'm very very happy with it. It's still in very good shape and it has lasted through all my workouts at the local gym. Allows me to drink enough water and keep track of it since it is 32 ounces." โ€”John

    Get it from Amazon for $10.55+ (available in 30 colors).

    Promising review: "I honestly did not know what to expect when I bought these. But they have definitely surpassed my expectations. They slide with ease on both hard floor and carpet. They are great for short but high intensity workouts. And believe me afterwards your core will be on fire." โ€”Candy

    Get them from Amazon for $8.95+ (available in five colors).

    9. An ab roller for anyone who has had it up. to. here. with boring crunches and sit-ups. Engage your arms, back, and core with this nifty workout tool, which doesn't take up a ton of space *and* feels like a fun little challenge.

    Model uses arms to roll out black ab roller from push-up position on the floor

    Promising review: "Normally I'm not one to go out and buy the latest fitness product. I had a 'classic' ab wheel I used but wanted something sturdy with resistance and safe. Additionally, I was seeking a product that would give me me a quick ab workout with minimal risk of injury. Here is where the Ab Carver Pro steps in. It has resistance, is safe and stable to use, and is versatile in terms of different directions of movement." โ€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $34.20.

    10. A subscription to Openfit, a digital streaming platform that features *all* of your favorite workouts. From yoga and Pilates to boxing and ballet, you'll basically never get bored of exercise thanks to the sheer versatility you'll have access to. What's that I hear in the distance? Is that the sound of, oh wow, motivation?

    Xtend Barre trainer Andrea Rogers in the middle of a class / Via @myopenfit

    I admittedly hate online workout classes (like, who will know that I'm taking a break every two seconds?), but have become obsessed with OpenFit โ€” their ballet sculpt classes are just the right level of challenging.

    Subscriptions starting at $10/per month.

    11. An exercise dress destined to become the ~day to night~ outfit of your activewear arsenal. Have peace of mind knowing you can wear this to a workout class and then immediately to lunch with friends; no packed change of clothes necessary. It's that cute.

    Outdoor Voices

    Promising review: "I ADORE THIS DRESS! It is so versatile, comfortable, and beautiful! You can wear it doing absolutely anything and look fantastic. I love the addition of the lining underneath, and love that it is lightweight enough to easily layer and change it up. I honestly hope to buy more in the future. This dress is game-changing!" โ€”Peyton

    Get it from Outdoor Voices for $100 (available in sizes XS-XL and in seven colors).

    12. Nonskid socks that make for a sturdy downward dog. Their grippy bottoms allow you to dig your feet more firmly into the floor, which makes any at-home workout (from yoga to barre) so much easier. Slippery flooring + sweaty feet = no longer your problem.

    Psst, reviewers recommend ordering a size down!

    Promising review: "These are good for barre classes, but I also love them because they keep my feet warm and steady on my cold, hardwood floors. So far, after washing them a couple of times, the grip soles have kept their grip!" โ€”Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in seven colors).

    13. A pair of Powerbeats headphones with crystal clear sound quality *and* a delightfully comfy design that will actually stay put in your ear. That's right, folks! Your earlobe sweat won't make these splurge-worthy buds fall out.

    Emma McAnaw / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "These Beats headphones have been a real game-changer for me. The sound quality is SO MUCH better than my cheap headphones, which has actually really improved my experience at the gym. I find it easier to stay motivated now that my music is *crystal clear* (and I can't hear myself wheezing on the treadmill). I was worried it would be hard to connect their Bluetooth settings to my phone and computer (again...I can't handle can openers), but the whole process is super self-explanatory. And they stay connected for pretty long distances โ€” I can walk away from my phone to the other side of the room without interrupting my music." โ€”Emma McAnaw, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get them from Amazon for $249.95.

    14. Just Dance 2021, because shimmying to Dua Lipa is *the* ideal form of cardio. The newest version of this cult-favorite game features 40 hit songs and is available on four major platforms: Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

    the game

    Promising review: "Video games and dancing are two of my favorite pastimes, and somehow I had never bought Just Dance before! I am a former Zumba and cardio dance instructor and have to admit this can also be a great workout. I already went through 40 songs of Just Dance 2021 this morning (game just arrived yesterday), and it was a blast. Thereโ€™s a great mix of moves from hip-hop, modern, Zumba, etc. and while I only recognized five or so of the songs, it was still enjoyable." โ€”sola-moczy

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (originally $49.99).

    15. A water-resistant fanny pack capable of holding cash, cards, phone, and an AirPods case. Whether going for a hike or a jog, this hands-free accessory means securely carrying around your essentials (fanny packs are cool now and I don't want to hear otherwise, capisci ?)

    reviewer wearing the belt in pink

    Promising review: "I am new to running and hiking. I go out alone most of the time and sometimes drive to where I'm going to run, therefore need somewhere to keep my car keys, etc. I found this and really love it! It stays in place and I don't really feel like it's there while I work out." โ€”Sara Sullivan

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in five colors).

    16. A machine-washable mat towel, because nothing says "I'm never doing yoga again" quite like your sweaty hands sliding down your sweaty mat to ruin what little stability you have in downward dog. If you know, you know.

    Anna Kopsky / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "It seriously has made me improve so much more during my practice, because I'm able to focus on my actual poses instead of getting slightly anxious that my yoga towel won't stay in place during what is supposed to be one of the most relaxing parts of my day. Plus, the Cush Gummy towel is thick enough where if I wanted to travel with it, I wouldn't have to lug my actual mat with me on my trip. I have a lot of yoga products I bring with me to class, but this is the most vital one!" โ€”Anna Kopsky, BuzzFeed Community Strategist

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in five colors).

    17. A smart basketball from DribbleUp, an interactive way to play sports *and* get ye old sweat glands working. It connects directly to a smart device, includes live and on-demand classes, and is a heck ton of fun. / Via @dribbleup, DribbleUp

    18. No-tie Lock Laces to prevent all "oh crap my shoes are untied and I'm going to trip on this treadmill" fiascoes. These babies are durable, adjustable, and conform to your foot for a personalized feel.

    grey sneakers with the no-tie shoelaces in pink

    Promising review: "I put these in my everyday gym shoes, and they work great. These laces keep them feeling snug! They're easy to install, and I really like being able to just slip my feet into my shoes when I'm in a hurry to let the dog out." โ€”Elaine Blackwell Eversole

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in 12 colors).

    19. A P. Volve starter kit that comes with a p.ball,, 1.5 lb. ankle weights, a heavy ankle band, gliders, a three-month membership to their digital platform, *and* unlimited access for 30 days to their Live Virtual Studio.

    20. A wire-free Glamorise sports bra available in cup sizes C-J, giving your breast friends a much-needed dose of extra support for minimum bounce and maximum comfort. If you're the kind of person who wears two sports bras to the gym, then this undergarment is about to change your life.

    reviewer wearing the nude sports bra

    Promising review: "My search for a sports bra is finally over!! No longer do I have to stuff myself into three sports bras, crushing my bosom and my soul, to be able to get a good workout. My 36G bust is fully supported in this bra; it's comfortable, easy to put on, and cute! I especially like the panel that prevents too much cleavage, which has always been a problem for me. Now I can go to the gym without feeling self-conscious. I'll definitely be purchasing more." โ€”Samantha

    Get it from Amazon for $22+ (available in band sizes C-J, cup sizes 34-50, and nine colors).

    21. A two-pack of crewneck tees, because it's about time you bid adieu to the ratty old gym shirt you've been wearing for the past, oh, decade. These are simple, sleek, and crafted with a moisture-wicking material.

    one shirt in black and the other in white

    Promising review: "I recently began taking yoga and my old standby cotton t-shirts were surprisingly hot and just not as comfortable as I wanted, so I turned to Amazon for an alternative. These fit the bill. So far they are comfortable, wash up well, and donโ€™t end up over my head while Iโ€™m attempting a downward dog. They also do a good job in wicking away perspiration." โ€”B Crane

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $18.50 (available in sizes XS-XXL).

    22. Moxi Beach Bunny roller skates sourced from a thrift shop (or so one would *think*). These vintage-inspired beauties are not only a delight to the eyes, but are an easy way to turn nightly strolls into a more exciting ritual.

    Nicole Nguyen / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "LOVE THIS PRODUCT!! I am a 36F and have an impossible time finding a sports bra for running. I used this band over a cheaper sports bra and am never going back. Itโ€™s so comfortable and so much more breathable than my expensive max support bras. I need an extra now for when this is in the wash!" โ€”Elizabeth G.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in six colors and sizes S-L).

    To learn more, check out "9 Life-Changing Things To Try In October."

    24. Bala Bangles that weigh one pound each and fasten neatly around your wrist. Is it a chic accessory? Yes, IMO. But does it also boost strength training during barre workouts and Zumba? Also yes.

    reviewer wearing the bangles

    Promising review: "Oh my goodnesss these are one of my favorite fitness finds this year. The material is smooth and the color is beautiful. I have the nude but even the nice color is good. They are a little expensive but I definitely recommend saving and waiting a little longer to purchase these over other brands." โ€”ZeldaBarbie99

    Get them from Amazon for $49 (available in two colors).

    25. A high impact sports bra that is, in a word, perfect. We're talking front adjustable straps, a wide underband and racerback for maximum support, molded cups, and mesh inserts that say ~sayonara~ to overheating.


    Promising review: "I am a runner and ever since high school, I have worn cheap, nonadjustable sports bras over underwire bras to the gym just so everything stayed in place. I am now 24 and decided I was being ridiculous and needed a better sports bra, and this did not disappoint! I wear a 34DD in regular bras. I ordered a 34DD in black and it fits well. I also bought a 34E in purple and it does have a bit more fabric to hold everything in place, but I fit into both. I wear these running, lifting, and rock climbing. Definitely a great high-impact bra." โ€”Anna

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in band sizes 32-44, cup sizes B-F, and in nine colors).

    26. A third-generation Echo Dot that can do everything from play music and make calls to read the news and set alarms โ€” all at the sound of your voice!

    the Echo Dot in black

    Promising review: "This is first smart speaker/assistant and I love it! Itโ€™s fun to use and talk to, especially during my workouts because I donโ€™t have to stop to change the song! Iโ€™m pleased with the sound and quality of the speaker, too." โ€”Kassandra M.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (originally $49.99).

    27. An adjustable elastic band you'll regret not having purchased sooner. No more carrying your iPhone like a weight whilst taking a jog โ€” simply put your Spotify on shuffle and rest assured that your fragile device will remain both safe and out of your way.,

    Promising review: "My first time wearing this was for my first half marathon and it worked GREAT. I have an iPhone 7 and the case has openings for all different jacks on the side and center of the phone. The screen protector allows you to use the touchscreen and the band was great and held tight. I absolutely love it and can't wait to use it for trail runs as the weather gets better!" โ€”Annie Rose

    Get it from Amazon for $14.98 (available in 10 colors and three sizes).

    28. Four-way stretch yoga shorts that hit at *just* the right part of your upper thighs. These are long enough so you can comfortably take a jog knowing your assets won't be exposed to anyone who walks by.

    model wearing the black shorts with pockets

    Promising review: "These are the best undershorts Iโ€™ve found yet. They are light and soft and donโ€™t ride up too much during Muay Thai. I donโ€™t have to think about them as Iโ€™m working out and can work those head kicks comfortably. The waist band stays in place without creating muffin top." โ€”Geoff & Shanna Carl

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 18 colors).

    29. Deodorizer balls so that you're not taken aback by the stench coming from your favorite workout sneakers. These absorb odor and and help remove icky bacteria: All you'll have to do is twist and slip these into your favorite kicks for that ~new shoe smell~.,

    Promising review: "These are awesome! My husband and I worked in a kitchen for a few years, and our shoes would just smell so bad โ€” between sweating from hours of running around and being on our feet, to the grease smells of the sea food truck. These worked amazing to keep the smell down. Our house went from stinking no matter what to not being able to smell anything at all." โ€”Stewart Alexander Davis

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $9.99 (available in five colors).

    30. Lavender-scented hypoallergenic wipes because morning runs are great in theory, but will you have time to shower before that early morning Zoom meeting? Mmm, probably not. These tea tree oil, peppermint, aloe, and ginseng wipes will quickly cleanse your skin and prevent any body acne apocalypses from occurring.

    hand holding purple wipe packet labeled "goodwipes in my bag, swag" / Via @goodwipes

    Plus, they're available in individual packets AKA you can slip one in your gym bag for sweaty workouts that don't leave time for a shower.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these things! I like to workout over my lunch hour to break up the day, but don't have time to get lost in my thoughts in a post-shower. I just use one of these! The scent is not too overpowering, but it's strong enough so that no one knows I got my sweat on at the gym." โ€”Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three scents).

    31. A collapsible treadmill sent from heaven for folks with apartments the size of a shoebox. This bluetooth-compatible machine folds neatly under your bed when not in use, plus it makes for an easy way to get in your steps if the weather outside is best described as freakin' frigid.

    Genevieve Scarano

    Promising review: "I find both walking and jogging on the Treadly 2 Pro so easy and enjoyable. Having this treadmill is great, because I can exercise without having to go outside (I live in upstate NY where it's really cold outside) or move furniture around my apartment. It doesn't even matter that it "only" goes up to a jogging speed, I *still* feel sweaty after spending time on it.My fitness routine involves a mix of cardio, strength training, and flexibility workouts. I use the Treadly 2 Pro about three to four times a week, mostly for jogging and occasionally for walking. Jogging on the Treadly 2 Pro definitely gets my heart rate up: I have so much fun changing up the speed and also working on a steady pace. (See me on the left in full jogging mode.) After 35 to 40 minutes is up, I feel a little tired, but in a good way. I don't enjoy power walking, but the Treadly 2 Pro changed my perspective on it: When I don't feel like doing a heavy workout, it's so nice to de-stress with brisk movement. Plus, I can watch my favorite TV shows (like Bridgerton ) while I walk, walk, and walk some more." โ€”Genevieve Scarano

    Get it from Treadly for $749+ (originally $849).

    32. An activewear set complete with a compression tank and high-waisted shorts, the latter of which are purposely designed with a longer length... aka no more having to pause that kickboxing videos in the name of adjusting yet another wedgie.

    reviewer wearing the matching black tank and shorts

    Promising review: "PERFECT and wish I ordered every color at once but happy with my cream color for sure and makes me look super tan. The bra is true to size and shorts arenโ€™t booty shorts so you feel held in and secure to do actual workouts. I removed the bra pads for personal preference." โ€”Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-L and in seven colors).

    33. A rechargeable personal blender great for anyone with limited storage space *and* minimum patience when it comes to post-workout fuel. Simply dump in your favorite ingredients, press the blend button, and BAM! A delicious and nutritious smoothie is yours in seconds.

    This blender comes with an ice cube tray and a funnel, plus you can remove the base to turn the blender itself into a drinking cup.

    Promising review: "As a very busy college student, I find it's hard to eat healthy. Between my limited dining hall options and my busy schedule, I needed a way to both eat my veggies and get to class on time. ENTER: this amazing blender bottle. BEST purchase my limited paycheck was ever used on. Fill 'er up with wilted salad bar spinach, crappy orange juice, a grainy apple, some ice, and BOOM...a shake is born. No need to head back to my dorm to plug it into a wall-socket base like most blenders. To my amazed friends, I am now the wizard of smoothies. They all want one now!" โ€”Adrianna Simmons

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99 (available in three colors).

    34. Or! A Dash rapid cooker you can plug in before that quick 10-minute cardio session, and this will handle all the ~hard~ work. Just fill this cooker with water, add up to six eggs, and breakfast is done.

    cooker with blue pastel bottom and clear top with six eggs inside

    When the eggs are done cookin', this handy gadget will automatically shut off. Plus, time won't take forever โ€” the removable parts of this cooker are dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "The claims are true. This is the easiest and fastest I have ever hard boiled eggs. I just got it, and I haven't tested it for making anything but hard boiled eggs, but oh man is it great for that. It was easy, it was fast." โ€”Apoc

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (originally $19.97, available in five colors).

    35. Wooden dice for anyone sick of downward dog and child's pose (the latter of which, let's face it, you do *way* too often). This set of seven dice features a different pose on each side, driving the amount of potential yoga combinations into the thousands.

    the wooden dice with etchings of various yoga poses

    The dice also come with a nifty handbook to explain each pose.

    Promising review: "Great! Fun way to mix it up for home workouts and travel. The dice are big and chunky and easy to read. Recommended!" โ€”Kirsten B.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.41.

    36. A tie-back tank designed with mesh backing to help give alllll that sweat currently pooling on your back the occasional breeze. This is ventilation at its finest, folks.

    Promising review: "I wear this top in yoga/Pilates/barre classes, and like the fact it can tie in a knot in the back if you want to have a more fitted look; it can also hang down for a more relaxed look. It comes in several bright colors (I ordered them all!) which go well with any kind of exercise capri/legging. I was most impressed with the quality and value for the money. This top is FOUR TIMES less expensive than typical exercise apparel, and the fit and finish on this are really nice! No surprises when I washed them, either!" โ€”Holly P

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 18 colors).

    37. A cooling towel that does exactly what the name implies โ€” it cools you down. Simply soak it in cold water post-workout, wring out the excess H2O, drape it around your neck, and voila! *sweat immediately begins to subside*

    the blue towel labeled "ChillPal"

    Promising review: "I use this towel for pretty much everything now! It has kept me cool during my gym workouts, and makes all my hikes and camping trips much more enjoyable since Iโ€™m not burning up in the sun. I wish I could rate this product even higher because of how amazing it is." โ€”Mike Grady

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97 (available in four colors).

    38. A Jack Black pain-relieving cream you'll want after a particularly grueling workout. This formula enlists the help of menthol, dragon's blood, MSM, arnica, and willowherb to provide instant relief for post-HIIT sore muscles.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.

    39. A sleeved T-shirt for scenic walks and long hikes. This top enlists the help of a lightweight, moisture-wicking fabric that also provides sun protection and prevents any smelly odors from forming (because all deodorant effectiveness goes right out the window the moment you start to sweat, that's not up for debate).

    reviewer wearing the sleeved top in blue

    Promising review: "Withstood the Arizona heat test. I wore this on a bicycle ride under my jersey. It was 104 degrees. It was cool! I even tried one sleeve up to compare arms and the covered one was cooler because the radiant heat of the sun was hot! I sprinkled my sleeves with water and it was really cool for a while. I got it because my skin is starting to get age spots even with daily sunscreen so I have to cover up." โ€”Saltwater girl

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 11 colors).

    40. And finally, a splurge-worthy Mirror โ€” in addition to a sleek and practical design (hello, full-length reflection), this grants you access interactive workout classes with the press of a button. No more clunky gym equipment crowding your tiny apartment.

    The Mirror

    Promising review: "The Mirror is the best investment Iโ€™ve made in quite some time. It is extremely easy to use. The set up was a breeze. Iโ€™ve only had it a little over a week and I am using it daily even if running short on time...itโ€™s easy to even do a 15-minute class! I also love I can do multiple classes one for cardio and then add on a short stretch or toning class. Basically, I feel I control what I want to do each day fitting into my schedule rather than working around classes at the gym. And for a family this is far less expensive each month than a multi-person gym membership. Iโ€™m thrilled with The Mirror!!! Even had a friend join me for a class and she loved it too!!" โ€”Ronda Stratis Elkins

    Get it from Mirror for $1,495.

    Oh look, it's me! Finally getting the hang of it:
