    Promising review: "I didn’t love the look of these at first but they are literally the most comfortable shoes I own! I have two pairs now and wear them almost every day!" –Alison Sullivan

    Get them from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in sizes 5–12 and 22 colors)

    2. A Polar Vantage running and multisport watch with GPS and wrist-based heart rate to monitor all your workouts and runs. The top-rated watch holds a charge up to 30 hours and is waterproof, so you can even wear it on swims.

    Reviewer's picture of the watch

    Promising review: "Just got my Vantage M the other day and am stoked. The hardware design is really nice, looks great, and super comfortable on the wrist. The OHR is solid, delivers very stable HR values. I'm a cyclist, now just beginning my pre-season prep so am doing a wide range of activities – hiking, lifting, running, strength, etc. This is my new go-to does-everything training tool. The GPS performance is solid as well. I travel a lot and the battery life has been great. I'm three days into it, including six hours of training and still >50% battery. Also, it is LIGHT! Definitely recommend this." –Eamon Lucas

    Get it from Amazon for $225.90 (available in four colors).

    3. A weighted fitness hoop that will make your workout as much fun as possible. The hoop itself weighs 2 pounds and is padded so it's comfortable while spinning.

    Promising review: "This is a good piece of equipment that's easy for beginners. This hoop has just the right amount of heft...enough to make it challenging, but not so much that you feel too tired or sore afterward. It is easy to assemble, and you can click it together in about 90 seconds. I like the cushioning, too. I got a few bruises from using this the first few times, but I experienced that with my last weighted hoop, too." –Jessi H.

    Get it from Amazon for $38.06+ (available in two weights).

    4. A running belt to remind you to bring along your essentials so you don't accidentally lock yourself out of your house while establishing your new fitness routine. The top-rated belt can hold keys, money, IDs, and more, all without interfering with your workout.

    Reviewer wearing the running belt

    Promising review: "I am a new runner. Well not new, but just getting back into a routine of running. As the weather warms up where I live I find myself wanting to skip the jacket, thus leaving me with no pockets to stash my phone, keys, etc. I had seen the FlipBelt at my local department store during Christmas time and wasn't convinced that it would be as great as everyone was telling me but boy was I wrong. This thing is awesome!!! It's so comfortable that after a while you don't even realize it's there. It fits my phone very easily and if my music app crashes while I'm running I can easily slide my phone out to fix the issue and slide it back in. I am currently wearing earbuds with cords while listening to music with my phone tucked into the belt and have had no issues. Seriously so happy I made this purchase. I would highly recommend you take your measurements so that you get the right fit. At the moment my belt is a tad tight on my hips so I am wearing it a little higher on my waist until I lose a few more inches. I'll use that as motivation :)" –Noelle H.

    Get it from Amazon for $22.37+ (available in 13 colors).

    5. A Thigh Master device that'll take your inner leg workout to a whole new level. The hinged device is designed to be squeezed between your thighs and, in doing so, helps to tone one of the most difficult-to-tone areas of the body.

    The Thigh Master Device

    Promising review: "First Thigh Master Ever. I have been wondering why I never invested in this! Love, love, love it. I can watch TV and do my exercises and also found out that I could use it on my arms, as well. I use it every day and I can already tell the difference in toning. I will definitely recommend it. It helps a lot during my stay-at-home mandate in my state when I could not go to the gym which is still not open." –AKM Roopchan

    Get it from Amazon for $15.29.

    6. A Sunny Health & Fitness magnetic under-desk elliptical foot pedal exerciser for folks who are slowly trying to get back into working out. The best-selling elliptical can be used while sitting, making it especially great for folks who have trouble finding time to work out.

    Promising review: "This elliptical is amazing. No assembly required. Very easy to use. You can sit in a chair and use it. I love mine and would recommend this to anyone who is a beginner at exercising." –CB

    Get it from Amazon for $127 (available in two colors).

    7. A lightweight sculpting bar that will help you tone your arms with very little effort. And since it's just a straightforward bar, it won't require lots of storage, either.

    woman using the sculpting bar

    Promising review: "I bought this bar, the 10-pound version, on orders from my chiropractor as a result of hip osteoarthritis. I use it for squats primarily and love it. After a few months of use, I'm already on the verge of buying the same bar but going for a 15- or 20-pound version. It feels great on my hips and is building my thigh and butt muscles at the same time. Who wouldn't like that?" –Marc2011

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in five weights and two sets).

    8. A gallon water bottle to inspire you to stay well hydrated as you embark on your new fitness journey. The jug, which comes with a convenient (and cute) braided handle and is designed to be opened with just one hand, is labeled with motivational reminders to sip throughout the day.

    The water bottle

    Promising review: "Kinda bulky but so convenient to get your water in for the day. This would be good for beginners trying real hard to get that water intake in. Love the color and durability of it!" –Allie DeCleene

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in 12 colors).

    9. An extra-thick Gaiam floor mat so you have something to cushion your knees, elbows, and/or hands on the floor. After all, if you haven't knelt into a push-up or hunkered down into a plank in a long time, doing so on the hard ground can hurt.

    Reviewer sitting on the mat

    Promising review: "I'm a beginner, and this yoga mat has served me well so far. It was the perfect thickness for me: cushioned, but not too thick. I can hold poses just fine: no slipping, and I don't really feel the floor through it on hard surfaces. The dogs love it too haha. Others have complained of the smell when you first get it; there was a fairly strong 'new plastic' type smell, but I washed it in the bathtub with a tiny amount of dish soap, dried it thoroughly, and that helped a lot. It gradually ceased smelling after a couple of weeks too. It just needed some time to air out. Overall, though, it's been great for me! I love it, and I enjoy the reversible colors and patterns!" –Nikoli

    Get it from Amazon for $34.98 (available in 25 colors).

    10. A pull-up bar to take your upper body and core strength to new heights. Best of all, you can remove it from your door frame and put it on the floor to double as a tricep dip bar, too.

    Reviewer's picture of the pull up bar

    Promising review: "This bar helps a lot for beginners when doing leg-ups. I will tell you all this: The only way to get abs fast is and will always be by doing leg ups. Lifting your legs up is a natural way to work your LOWER abs will strengthen your core. Get rid of crunches, which will never help you in the long run. All other exercises for abs other than leg lifts are just stupid and force yourself to be in pain in some way. Oh, and one last thing. DO PULL-UPS, WHICH ARE DESIGNED TO WORK YOUR CORE NOT YOUR UPPER BODY." –Juan

    Get it from Amazon for $24.32.

    11. A pack of exercise sliders for folks who love low-impact movement that delivers results. Fun fact: If you like Pilates or megaformer classes, many of the moves can be taken from the megaformer to the floor with sliders.


    Promising review: "One of my fave celebrities posted a video of herself working out with these at home and I actually really love ab workouts but thought I'd try them. We have hardwood floors and these core sliders slid over them really well. They are actually pretty fun and simple to work out with and you can vary your exercises easily. They're a good way to challenge your abs and less boring than other ab workouts. I'd say they are good for beginners or advanced." –Sara

    Get them from Amazon for $6.90 (available in three colors).

    12. A mini trampoline to bounce your way into your new fitness routine.

    Promising review: "I love this mini trampoline. Its my first rebounder, so I didnt want to splurge if I wasn't going to commit to using it regularly. I use this all the time. Once this breaks, I'll invest in a better quality one. Great for a beginner like me. Quiet. Lightweight. Functional. Everything I was looking for." –J. Avila

    Get it from Amazon for $50.99 (aavailable in two colors).

    13. A reflex ball that will help you become a better boxer, but is also just super fun to use.

    Reviewer holding the head band and ball kit with five-star caption "amazing reflex ball for training"

    Promising review: "I bought this to augment my at-home workouts, and after getting it in the mail, I set up the beginner ball and started playing with it in the kitchen. The manual says to train for three to four minutes at a time, but I got completely carried away and realized an hour and a half later that I was still messing with it. Definitely easy to get carried away and burn time. This will definitely be a great addition to my routine. Also, after two weeks, am noticing that I am improving in my accuracy as well, so it does what it claims to do, and it does it well! Love it!" –Andrew

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in three options).

    14. A weighted jump rope for folks looking to skip and tone at the same time.

    Promising review: "I’ve bought six jump ropes of various thicknesses and weights. This one is perfect, it’s lightweight yet not so light that it’s difficult to use for a beginner like myself. It’s easy to adjust the length, too. The handles are super light but thick so easy to hold on to." –Crystal Lemon

    Get it from Amazon for $8.38 (available in six colors).

    15. A set of push-up bars to help you become the best push-upper on the block. The handled discs plant firmly into the ground and rotate for safe and stable motion both up and down.

    The push-up bars

    Promising review: "These are great for home use. They're well-made and lightweight. They're easy to clean, as well. They're perfect for a beginner like myself." –AG

    Get it from Amazon for $16.47.

    16. An aerobic exercise step-deck so you can step your way to a fun new workout routine. The deck comes with a 27" x 11" wide platform and a set of risers so that it can be as low as four inches and as high as six.


    Promising review: "This step is just what I needed. It has a beginner level and you can make it higher once you get better. It's very stable. Has rubber on the bottom so even if it's on hardwood it stays in one place." –Lisa

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    17. An exercise ball for folks hoping to work not only on toning but stability, too. The ball comes with a stability ring so that you won't roll around while using it, and it has attached bands for simple-yet-scorching at-home workouts.

    Promising review: "Mantra Sports' products are awesome for increasing tone, strength, endurance, and flexibility. The poster included with the BodyBall Gym Series is a valuable resource for anyone who needs some suggestions. I also use this product in my circuit training and warm-up/cool-down routines. I highly recommend it to beginners and fitness enthusiasts alike!" –Carlee

    Get it from Amazon for $37.97 (available in three colors).

    18. A medicine ball so you can upgrade your ab routine or even add a little weight to a game of catch. Whichever you choose, your body will thank you.


    Promising review: "Really great medicine ball! I’ve had Valero balls in the past but lost them in a hurricane/flood. I like this Day 1 Fitness medicine ball even better. I love that it has a very grippy exterior especially when you are sweaty and holding this over your head. I mainly use it for my waist by holding it over my head elbows bent and straight out to the sides and then tilting your body side to side, very effective in shrinking your waistline. Also holding it in front and twisting works good and doing squats holding the ball back straight. There are a lot of exercises you can do with a medicine ball. I like the 14-lb but it is too heavy if you are just beginning, start with an 8 and work up. This is an excellent medicine ball, I highly recommend it." –Paula G. Cannon

    Get it from Amazon for $26.37+ (available in six colors and one set).

    19. A mini Pilates ball to help you hone in on core exercises. Despite its size, it can withstand up to 600 pounds of pressure, so no need to worry about it popping while squeezing it between your legs à la Pure Barre.

    Promising review: "I really love this Pilates ball. It's super easy to inflate and use straight out of the box. It comes with directions on the different ways you can use the ball and I found this really helpful as this is a new way of exercising for me. My Pilates instructor suggested I purchase one and I am glad I did." –Kahuna Girl

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

    20. A Kettle Gryp that transforms any dumbbell into a kettlebell. Simply snap it around the handle of the weight et voilà.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I can't believe nobody came up with this earlier, such a great solution to a seemingly simple problem. I work out at a couple gyms that either don't have kettlebells or are missing important sizes. I also travel a lot and hotels never seem to have them, so if my Crossfit workout calls for them in the workout, I'm out of luck. This thing is a must-have in my gym bag and my suitcase from now on. I was worried about the durability of a plastic handle, but I accidentally dropped this one on the concrete outside in the middle of my WOD with a 50# dumbbell, and it was completely fine (other than the scuff I put on it). The owners of one of my gyms saw me with this thing and decided to buy a bunch for the gym. If this company makes it on Shark Tank or something, I think you'll start seeing these everywhere, kind of like the TRX explosion, so I recommend getting it now ahead of the wave and you can say you were a trendsetter!" —TF TAKEFLIGHT

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95.

    21. A pack of resistance bands to tone your muscles without a gym membership or set of weights. The set includes five resistance levels so you can work your way up to extra-heavy.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon

    Promising review: "These are a nice add-on to my exercise routine. I primarily use the black and red bands which are the most resistance. The two lightest bands offer almost no resistance at all. I use these bands during my squats and lunges, but I love using them to exercise while doing other things like housecleaning. Basically anything I'm doing now can become an exercise once I add a couple bands." —Heph N.

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $9.49 (available in two colors).

    22. A pack of glow-in-the-dark LED bands so you'll be highly visible on your night runs.

    Promising review: "I use these armbands when riding my electric scooter home in the dark, as there's little surface area on the scooter (which has a small headlight and tail light low to the ground) to mount additional lights or reflectors. They do a great job of making me visible (especially from the side, where my other lights and reflectors are not visible), and I'm very happy with their durability and ease of use. I have ridden with them several times in the mist and rain with no issues, and turning them on and off while wearing gloves is no problem." —R. Sewell

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in nine colors).

    23. A TRX suspension training system to take your workouts to a whole new level. Whether you're looking to do squats, lunges, or pushups, a TRX suspension system will help you tone your muscles and perfect your form.

    Promising review: "I don't always have the time/inclination to go to the gym, and having this at home allows me to get in a proper workout without leaving the house. It's just a fun way to try new things and use muscles that you wouldn't be able to otherwise. I can't do pistol squats in real life, but I can with this thing! It's incredibly easy to use and to adjust." —Cersar

    Get it from Amazon for $129.95 (available in two colors).

    24. A sturdy grid foam roller that will help you soothe tight muscles post-sweat.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "Nothing has been helping. From running, to walking uphill both ways to work (yes, this is possible), to wearing heels all day, my calves were tight. Nothing has been working. This roller was a godsend. I actually have more mobility after using it than traditional stretching, and I think there was a knot in each calf that it worked out. This is a must-have." —Raven

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in three colors).

    25. A stretching poster so you know how to adequately stretch your body before and after your workouts.

    Promising review: "I'm delighted with this clear, comprehensive chart. It covers all parts of the body for pre- and post-exercise stretching. You can even wipe it clean!" –JH
