1. A ventilated mesh sports bra that offers support without making you sweaty. While it's made without wires, the cups are structured to provide adequate lift and reduce bounce mid-workout.
2. A high-tech treadmill so that you can turn your living room into a fast-paced track. Plus, it comes with a one-year iFit membership, AKA an extensive library of workouts to choose from, all of which are coached by top-of-the-line instructors.
3. A weight-lifting trap bar for squats and shoulder shrugs. While it doesn't come with plates, it's designed to have them added for the weight of your choosing.
4. And Olympic-grip weight plates that can be used on a barbell (or trap bar) or used alone. If you plan to use it on either type of bar, you'll need two; otherwise, you can get away with buying single plates.
5. A cushiony, non-slip yoga mat that creates the perfect base for sun salutations. The lightweight design can be used indoors or at a studio and is made to hold up during regular practice.
6. A pair of moisture-wicking plus-size leggings for a dry workout that's comfortable, secure, and (of course!) stylish. The high-waist silhouette features a thick waistband and metallic trim for extra flair.
7. A balance board that can be used on your feet or hands. Use it to do push-ups, stability squats, or ab twists.
8. A 100-pound punching bag so you can turn your garage or basement into your own boxing ring. Don't worry about hurting your hands in the process — it comes with hand tape and gloves.
9. A Pilates reformer so that you can strengthen, lengthen, and tone from your own home — as opposed to within a boutique fitness studio. It comes with a rebounder trampoline, a cushy pillow, and instructional DVDs to make the workout as effective and comfortable as possible.
10. A set of resistance bands to help achieve a heavy-weight workout sans any machines. And, if you're not sure how to use them, you're in luck! They come with a set of cards that depict easy-to-follow exercises great for at-home workouts.
11. A plus-size, zip-up sports bra that has a racerback silhouette with a cut-out for extra comfort. Made with moisture-wicking fabric, you're less likely to feel drenched by the end of your at-home workout.
12. A colorful medicine ball that's heavy but cushioned and soft. Use it alone or buy another weight from the collection to create a set to tone your arms and abs.
13. An all-in-one gym machine for comprehensive at-home workouts that target your shoulders, arms, abs, legs, and more. Depending on how you sit on the machine, it can be used as a preacher curl, lat pulldown, pectoral fly, or chest press.
14. A two-in-one elliptical and bike so you can switch between workouts before burning out. Thanks to the adjustable, padded seat, the machine is comfortable for a variety of body shapes and sizes.
15. A cast-iron kettlebell that can be swung, curled, and lifted to your heart's desire. Buy one for double-grip exercises, or two for a grip in each hand.
16. A rebounder trampoline for the budding gymnast. Even if you don't plan to do flips or V-sits, having this trampoline will help you achieve a higher heart rate and improved cardio endurance — after all, why do you think trampoline bounce classes are becoming so big in boutique fitness?
17. A five-in-one workout bench that has a squat rack, leg extension, preacher curl, and weight storage. Just keep in mind that it's designed to support a maximum of 300 pounds.
18. A set of adjustable dumbbells so you can increase your weight without dedicating a room to the cause. Each space-saving dumbbell can be adjusted from 5 to 52.5 pounds in 2.5-pound increments up to 25 pounds. In other words, the options are endless.
19. A weighted vest to take your runs, squats, stair climbs, and jump roping to the next level. Simply strap it on and conquer the resistance.
20. A pair of adjustable ankle weights that can be worn on your wrists as well. You can remove the weights as you please, which lets you enjoy anywhere from one to five pounds of added resistance per limb.
21. A stainless-steel shaker cup so you can stay hydrated and enjoy your smoothies or supplements without having to go to the kitchen between each rep. The cup is designed to keep your bev icy-cold for up to 24 hours.
22. A speed jump rope to elevate your cardio endurance without splurging on a treadmill. The flexible, nine-foot rope is lightweight with easy-to-grip handles, ensuring you'll be able to jump quickly and efficiently.
23. A competitive soccer ball so you can work on your dribbling skills before heading off to play with friends. The high-gloss finish makes it resistant to scuffs and the intermediate size makes it a great option for beginners.
24. A trigger-point massage roller to relieve lactic acid build-up post-workout. Despite being a semi-soft roller, using it will hurt so good and benefit your muscles in the long run.
25. An exercise ball that you can do crunches and push-ups with. Plus, when you're not using it to workout, you can use it as a chair to help improve your stability and balance.
26. An aerobic step platform for step-ups, lunges, split squats, and more. It comes with four risers that can be removed one-by-one so that you can achieve your optimal workout height.
27. Or a stair-stepper machine that comes with resistance bands so you can work your arms and legs at the same time. Moving side-to-side on the machine lets you tone your calves, quads, hip flexors, and glutes — all while watching your favorite TV show.
28. A basketball hoop for those who don't live in tiny apartments. Seriously though, if you have a driveway where you can set up this best-selling hoop, it's guaranteed to make you want to ball — or at least play horse.
29. This final four-edition basketball that pairs perfectly with the hoop above. Even if you don't have a hoop, having a basketball on hand lets you practice dribbling and passing, so that you can work on hand-eye coordination and endurance.
30. A hand-held pressure-point massager to easily and effectively roll out quads, calves, feet, and more. Despite the spikey design, this roller isn't the least bit painful — just oh-so soothing.
31. A padded exercise mat for extra cushion during floor exercises. You can roll it out and lay down for ab exercises or get on your hands and knees for modified planks and push-ups — plus so much more.
