    Promising review: "Can't believe I stuck with my old mat for so long. It was getting worn and I was stunned by how thin it was compared with this one!

Love it." β€”sharkeatingman

There are many different options of workouts within the app ranging from brisk walks to runs and HIIT workouts. The Hawaii walks are beautiful. The treadmill is user-friendly. The screen is easy to function and gives detailed workout details (time, pace/mile, etc.). The incline movement is smooth and gradual and the track provides a smooth run. I also enjoy the tablet attachment for reading, movies, etc. As far as assembly goes, it took us a few hours. You'll want two people to help but it isn't difficult. Overall a great product, I would definitely recommend." β€”crosbiefam3

    Promising review: "I've had these for a couple weeks and I'm very happy with them. I love the 'hey siri' ability as I use Reminders for my running to-do list. I especially like that I can use one airpod at a time for phone calls, and when the battery wears down, I just swap out to the other ear and put the first one in the case to charge for the next swap. They're very comfortable and I'm impressed with how well they stay in my ears." β€”loriinbellavista

    Price: $139

    Promising review: "I've owned several different types of jump ropes over the years and trust me this rope delivers especially at the price! Sure you could buy more expensive jump ropes with all these special features like ball bearings and clips but for an economic rope that does the job and does it well you can't go wrong. I've taken this rope traveling all over the country with me and it gives me a great workout every time. The longer handles make it great to do tricks with it like criss-cross and double-unders." β€”Derek

    Price: $6.98

    18. An Olympic-grip weight plate that can be used alone for arm raises, shoulder shrugs, and oblique extensions, or paired with another plate for barbell squats and deadlifts. Just remember, if you plan to use your plates on a bar, you'll need two to get the job done.

    Promising review: "This bar is solid, not hollow, and will hold up to five plates no problem even though it's rated at 1000lbs. I would recommend this bar since it's about $50-60 cheaper than a bar like Troy. You will build the same muscle regardless of this brand versus a Rogue or Troy. Paint is glossy but easy to touch up. It's not powdercoated but still a nice bar." β€”WattaPunk

    Price: $69.99

    20. A soft medicine ball for hard at-home workouts. Use it for overhead lifts, balance exercises, and ab circuits for a simple-yet-effective workout.


    Promising review: "This ball is middle to smaller than a basketball but just right and it's cheaper than any other 10-pound ball at anyplace you go to. It's sturdy and built to last β€” I think it's sand that's in it. It's perfect for lunges or squats. Very happy with the deal I found." β€”Wolf

    Price: $6.99-$8.99 (available in two weight options)

    21. A two-in-one elliptical and bike so you can switch back and forth between workouts for high-intensity intervals or to simply avoid burning out on one workout. Made with an adjustable padded seat that can be moved up and down and back and forth, you can tailor the machine to your body size.


    Promising review: "This is my first elliptical experience ever, knee problems chased me off my home treadmill and all signs pointed to this. My go-to cardio has always been running, so I was nervous to make this investment that I may regret. After trying a very similar model in the store, the fit was perfect for my 5'2" frame. The bike is a 'bonus' option during recovery, I was not expecting the butt-kicking workout this thing gives me every time I use it. It sits on my cement basement floor without a mat and there has been no wobble or other trouble. β€”Lisa

    Price: $169.99

It fits perfectly under my desk and is so quiet that my coworker who shares a cubicle wall with me can't even hear it." β€”Operagrl

    Price: $39.99

    Price: $4.87

    Promising review: "I was happy that I didn't need any tools to put this together. It seems stable, and I like the different exercises pictured on the poster that comes with it." β€”Oshenside

    Price: $19.99

    29. A thigh toner for added resistance during clamshell, bridge, and even arm exercises. The device is padded so it's never uncomfortable during use β€” apart from, you know, the burn it's bound to deliver mid-workout.


    Promising review: "Some people laugh at The Thighmaster but it works for me and I love that I can use it for different parts of my body. I work out from home and have always had trouble finding ways to work my inner thighs. This works, I love it. And you don't have to get off the couch to use it! What could be better? I'm getting another one for the office." β€”Spattie
