    The 12 position weight bench

    Promising review: "What can I say it gets the job done, extremely sturdy just got it today, the thickness of the cushion might not be thick for some, as for me I feel safe and sturdy benching 300 while I'm weighing at 180 lbs, I'll definitely recommend this bench to any home gym enthusiast!" —Richard

    Price: $89 (originally $99.99)

    4. An ab trainer machine so you can get that strong core you've been craving. It's a great way to promote lower back health and build strength from your center, which is truly the best starting place.

    Price: $19.99

    The 2 lb weight in blue

    Promising review: "It's awesome for a beginner. I did see more weight reduction using dumbbells for strength training. As days pass, probably I will have to buy higher pounds. This is good for now, I bought two of them." —Resh

    Price: $1.96 (originally $5.99; available in three sizes)

    6. A six-piece interlocking puzzle mat for the person who likes to change up their routine. Stack them for knee support or play around with their configuration to figure out the best set up for your surroundings.

    The six-piece interlocking puzzle mat

    Promising review: "Quick delivery. Easy to put together. I purchased two packs, which were mixed between the gray/black as mentioned in other reviews, however, I was able to make it work without too much effort. Only time will tell in terms of durability. Heavy equipment will make imprints in the mat but not enough to tear, so will protect the floor underneath the mat. Delighted so far, and grateful for the other Walmart reviewers who took the time out to review." —charmain

    Price: $14.92

    7. A two-pack of fabric resistance bands because the sky is the limit when it comes to what can be done with these. Use them to stretch out your arms or get a little fire going in your legs while you do your daily squats.

    The two-pack of fabric resistance bands in orange and blue

    Promising review: "I bought these bands to do thigh work. They are a tight-stretch fabric, so they don't irritate your skin like the rubber bands do. They also don't roll. There are two sizes, but I am new to this type of exercise so I currently use the one with least resistance but hope to work up to the other size." —SallyfromNE

    Price: $14.97

    8. A stability ball so you can gain core strength, work on hiking your knees up high to your chest, or practice your push up game, all from the comfort of your living room.

    The stability ball in 65 cm

    Promising review: "The sand in it is really amazing. Helps to maintain balance, for the clumsy clowns like myself. Nice pump included. Nice ball to have, good size... Unless you have a Great Dane that likes balls for toys... then it becomes might flat!" —WalmartCustomer

    Price: $14.88 (available in three sizes)

    9. A high-density foam exercise mat that is so squishy you'll forget there's hardwood underneath it. Plus, it comes with a carrying strap so you can practice your yoga in the park or even just try it out in your backyard.

    The high-density foam exercise mat in blue

    Promising review: "My two yoga mats came quickly! I got two red ones and the color is vibrant! I especially love the carrying handle that keeps it rolled up to carry here and there! It's soft, well-made and a nice size too." —Sandy

    Price: $19.47 (originally $24.50; available in six colors)

    10. An Echelon indoor bike with 90-day free membership for the person that loves cycling but doesn't love the cold winter wind that comes along with it. This is a solution to weather issues that will allow you to cycle all year around.

    The Echelon bike

    Promising review: "Why spend $2,500 on a Peloton when you can get this awesome bike? Sure it doesn't have a gargantuan screen but you can get the same exact workout with this bike when you use a phone and tablet, which we all probably have laying around. Easy to assemble, easy to connect, and a seat which miraculously did not cause pain in the rear as I was expecting! The only thing I'd change is the pedals, the cages are hard to strap into. But they feel pretty sturdy under your feet and don't make any noise! The bike is silent too. In love." —Ana

    Price: $497 (originally $599)

    11. A set of 20-lb dumbbells because lifting weights doesn't have to be intimidating. If you're looking to build up to larger weights, this is a great place to start.

    The set of 20 lb dumbbells

    Promising review: "I think considering the pandemic it is a great value for money since every other manufacturer has hiked their prices. I use it as 15, 20, and 30 lbs. All work fine. The only complaint is the grip is too rough for me. I have used a little less rough grip before and this imprints on your hand if using, say, 30 lbs." —Vichal

    Price: $80 (originally $89.99)

    12. A three-piece dumbbell set so you can get some variety in your life. Whether you're looking to introduce some diversity to your weight training or just trying to add some extra lbs to your deadlifts, this trifecta is your new BFF.

    The three piece dumbbell set

    Promising review: "Good quality and works great for what I need for my family workouts. Delivery was great and the product was packaged very well." — chucko

    Price: $59.99 (originally $79.99)

    The pair of rotating push up handles

    Promising review: "Very good push-up trainer. Just started using. Note, this means it's business. What they say is basic looks advanced to me. But I hope to get full benefits. If you don't have any prior push-up experience, pl do it for a few weeks before using this as it sometimes turns quite fast. Easy assembly. Look forward to good results and health." —Aparna

    Price: $18.84

    14. A massage roller for the person who works out as hard as they play. It's essential to give your muscles a break and with this foam roller, they'll be thanking you later.

    The massage roller in black and green

    Promising review: "This roller is well-designed and durable. It has a rigid inner tube to hold the shape of the roller and will hold up well during stretching or an after-workout tuneup. It feels built to last and comparing it to my other rulers, is vastly superior in both quality and ability!" —Walmart reviewer

    Price: $14.77

    15. A three-level aerobic stepdeck because jump squats just got a whole lot more fun. It's a great way to add some dimension to your workout space and allows you to do cardio, strength training, and so much more.

    The three-level aerobic stepdeck

    Promising review: "I had a total knee replacement and wanted to continue my therapy at home after being discharged from outpatient therapy. This is perfect! Lightweight, so I can move it out of the way every day but sturdy enough to put full weight on it. Great increments of levels." —Nancy

    Price: $24.77 (originally $39.99)

    16. A stepping machine with resistance bands so you can get a full-body workout with all the heavy equipment. It's small enough to fit under your bed but powerful enough that you'll definitely be feeling a burn after each use.

    The stepping machine

    Promising review: "I was actually shocked when I opened the box to find that it was already put together. All I had to do was connect the exercise bands to the stepper which was super easy. I'm getting the exercise I need without having to go to the track. I also bought one for my granddaughter and she loves it as well." —Kim

    Price: $49.99

    17. A barbell curl bar that is extremely useful. You can slide whatever sided weight you prefer on the ends and use this for the rest of your days.

    The barbell curl bar

    Promising review: "Just like the gym that we spend thousands of dollars for. This home use curl bar is nothing different and works perfectly. I'm glad I made this purchase." —neal

    Price: $105

    18. A tri-folding exercise mat for those who like to shake it up. It's great for meditating after a hard workout or just providing more padding to a weak area.

    The tri-folding exercise mat

    Promising review: "This mat is excellent quality and folds up easily. My 12-year-old daughter is very pleased to have a mat for stretching and gymnastics. She especially likes that she can fold part of it to make tumbling and bridging easier. We are considering purchasing another for an even larger area for tumbling." —David

    Price: $48 (available in four colors)

    19. A Fitbit because we all like to know when we're doing well and it's important to track our progress so we can keep on top of our goals. It'll tell you your steps for the day so you can keep working towards your incentives, whatever they may be.

    The fitbit in black

    Promising review: "I love this so much. I spent a while trying to talk myself into getting this and I'm glad I did. It's super easy to set up. There's an app that you download that walks you through set up. It tracks just about everything you'd want it to. You're also able to swim with it on. There's a setting that you have to select before swimming and then you're ready to go. It a great motivator if you're looking to become more active." —Sonya

    Price: $78.95 (originally $99.95; available in three colors)

    20. A floor mat that has a strong grip feature that will make you feel like you're doing yoga in a professional studio. It's super high quality and will last you a lifetime so you'll never have to worry about the ripping and tearing that happens with cheap yoga mats.

    The floor mat in black

    Promising review: "We got this for protection for our wood floor. The mat is thick enough and stays flat on the floor. It doesn't slide all over the floor and stays put where we want it to be. And it doesn't leave any unwanted residue on the wood floor." —atorjun

    Price: $49.99 (originally $59.99)

    21. A sports training aid for the person who's always running or playing sports on a field. It's a great way to get kids involved in exercise but is advanced enough for adults to use and get a serious workout.

    The sports training aid

    The rowing machine

    Promising review: "I've only had the FITNESS REALITY 1000 PLUS Bluetooth Magnetic Rowing Machine Rower a few days but loving it so far. It was delivered about two weeks earlier than the initial delivery estimate which was a wonderful surprise. Assembly was quick and easy because the assembly directions were very easy to follow." —JaNiece

    Price: $269 (originally $325)

    23. A power rack with 500-lb capacity so you can get in your pull-ups and work on your lifting skills right from home.

    The power rack in black

    Promising review: "Although this took a long time to ship, I get it cause gyms are closed and equipment is in high demand. I received this and put it together by myself in about an hour. Instructions are basic but if you look closely at the diagram (pay attention to where holes are in the picture) you'll figure this out no problem. So far it's proven to be a solid rack. The red and black version looks sharp and the numbers etched in the posts are very clean and precise looking giving this stand a quality finish. Oh, and at $120 bucks you can't beat this." —Bryan

    Price: $129.99

    24. An adjustable dumbbell that is ideal for the person looking to work their way up to higher weight training. It conveniently allows you to add or reduce weight so you'll be lifting big in no time.

    Price: $105 (originally $129)

    25. An extra-large all-purpose mat for the person who likes to make their home gym feel as professional as possible. Whether you're practicing tumbling or just allowing yourself extra room to really go for it, this item is a winner. Plus, if you drop a weight, it's NBD!

    The black mat

    Promising review: "The size of this mat is perfect for practicing karate moves and for walking/aerobic activities indoors. Doesn't move around when placed on bare floors. Works great! Not so secure when placed on carpeting so I would not recommend its use on carpets." —Cheryll

    Price: $89.99

    26. A hand recovery kit because sometimes sports injuries happen and healing them is just as important as continued exercise. These can help relieve stress in your hands, fingers, and wrists.

    The hand recovery kit in three colors

    Promising review: "I purchased this set to use as stress balls during the workday. I wanted something that would last a long time and could be cleaned easily. Since they're made for hand strengthening, the resistance will also be great to keep hands and wrists strong. I'm very pleased with these." —mrsg

    Price: $8.97 for a set of three

    27. A fitness trampoline so you can bounce your way to a better workout. It's a small household change, but it truly makes yoga or jump squats all the more challenging and, let's be honest, worth it.

    The fitness trampoline in teal

    Promising review: "It's a great little trampoline at an excellent price. I am 205 pounds and it handles me perfectly well. During the times of COVID, it is great to have in-home cardio instead of a bulky and expensive cycle or treadmill. Grateful for very fast shipping from this store." —JLMIA

    Price: $39.60 (originally $49.97)

    28. A flat weight bench that will allow you to lay back and relax while you get your workout in. It's perfect for working out triceps without all the neck strain and will make for a more calming exercise experience.

Ever since COVID we have not gone to the gym and have been looking for one of these to work from home but seems that everyone had the same idea. We are so happy to finally have been able to have found it here at a good price and it came pretty fast." —Jasmine

    Price: $49

    29. A massage gun with five settings for the person who gets aches and pains. It makes exercise feel more alluring when you know you have a personal masseuse to look forward to after.


    Promising review: "This is a great message. I bought it because I had some deep muscle pain in my legs, arms, necks, and upper back. This machine relieved those aches." —Walmart reviewer

    Price: $79

    30. And a doorway pull-up bar because this is a classic we can all come back to. No matter your skill set, passing by this every day will surely turn you from a novice to an expert in no time.

    The doorway pull up bar

    Promising review: "My husband and I started a p90x workout program which requires a pull-up bar. This one works very well in our living room door frame. The many handle options work perfectly but I do with the foam was on the entire bar since my hands need to be a bit closer together. My husband is a bit bigger and this holds his weight just fine." —ErzaHeartfilia

    Price: $24.99 (originally $27.99)
