    Amazon / Via amazon.com, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a pair of the lace ones that I've loved wearing underneath my dresses and skirts. I just purchased the non-lace ones to wear when I run, because the seams of my shorts rub in this humid weather! These worked freaking fabulous for my run, and stayed in perfect place (I ordered size C!) They were so much cooler than compression shorts or spandex, and kept the sticky thighs away from each other!" —Michaela

    Get them from Amazon for $18.95 (available in seven sizes and 17 colors).

    2. And an anti-chafe balm that'll help keep other parts of your body safe (like underarms and feet) from skin rubbing issues including irritation and redness.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff really is awesome. It really works and I don't know where it has been all my life. I started looking for something for thigh chafing after running into a few issues (not fun). It is super easy to use, just slide it on like you'd use deodorant." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8+ (available in three sizes and in 2-packs).

    3. High-rise pocket leggings so perfect for basically every type of workout session, you'll be thinking "where have you been all my life?" They check off all the boxes for design (moss, plum, and more chic shades for your activewear wardrobe), compression (yes, they'll actually stay up when you exercise), and functionality (two roomy pockets to hold your cell phone and keys).

    Girlfriend Collective

    These leggings also help keep plastic bottles out of landfills. According to Girlfriend Collective, each pair of High-Rise Pocket Leggings is made with 79% RPET and 21% spandex.

    Promising review: "I'm not usually one for reds, but I couldn't resist with this gorgeous color. It's more earthy than a raspberry and not bad for someone who usually looks red and splotchy in reds. The pocket leggings are great for keeping track of my headphones during a workout, my wallet on a run, or keeping your phone where it needs to be.Girlfriend Collective Customer

    Get them from Girlfriend Collective for $78 (available in sizes XXS–6XL, two lengths, and six colors).

    4. A pack of dumbbell exercise cards to mix up your indoor training routine with weighted planks, thrusters, and shoulder presses galore. You'll never know what's coming up next in the deck and your arms, legs, and core will be like "hello, where have you been all my life?"

    Amazon, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought these to get some new ideas to mix up my gym routine. I got a lot of new ideas from these cards. Some were reminders of ones I already know, but there are a bunch of really interesting ones that I've been mixing in. The countless combinations you can create is making my workouts more fun and motivating." —Paisley

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97 (available in three volumes, also available in bodyweight exercises).

    5. A Brrrn board that'll be perfect for exercising in your small living space. It's adjustable from five to six feet, lets you complete workouts via sliding movements (more on that below), *and* fits under a couch when you're not using it.

    Brrrn

    It comes with a pair of Slide Mittens, a pair of Slide Booties (fits sizes 5–11), and one pack of ArmorAll Board Wipes for post-workout cleanup.

    The Brrrn board requires sliding movements (watch this tutorial video for a detailed demo) and it works multiple body areas, including arms, legs, and the core.

    You can also subscribe to Brrrn's on-demand workout classes (Bootcamp, Cardio Sculpt, Yoga, Recovery, Intro To Slide, and so much more!) for $14.99 per month. Sign up for a subscription here.

    Promising review: "The Brrrn board is very well made and a great workout. I live in a small apartment and the board is easy to store, which was a big selling point for me. I am still getting used to sliding, but the Brrrn app is a wonderful tool that will guide you on the basics of sliding. I really enjoy the motion of sliding and it is low impact, great for those times when you need to be kind to your joints. Don't let the low impact aspect fool you. Sliding on the board will get you in the sweat zone quickly and you will work multiple muscle groups." —S.P.

    Get it from Brrrn for $229+ (available in two lengths).

    6. A yoga strap to help you get flexible during yoga poses: Slip it around your feet or knees to stretch and get the most out of your practice.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "This yoga strap feels strong and well made, and I love the green color. It isn't scratchy at all, and is easy to grip on to during poses. Previously I’d been using a robe belt as a makeshift yoga strap, which worked alright but the belt was stretchy and wasn’t suitable for all poses. This strap has no give, and I’m quite pleased with it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in five colors).

    7. And an ~ohmazing~ mat that'll take your indoor or outdoor yoga practice to the next level. It has a pretty pink and purple design, a 3.5-mm-thick base to help prevent slipping, and a grippy microsuede top layer that'll withstand sweat while you flow from pose to pose.

    Promising review: "I do a lot of home workouts since we can’t go to the gym and this has saved my life! My place has hard tile and I can’t feel *anything* through the endless burpees, crunches, or planks! It’s also super easy to clean and store *and* it makes for a cute IG picture. ☺️" —CultureFit Clothing Customer

    Get it from CultureFit Clothing for $89.99.

    8. A set of adjustable weights so you can gradually work on your lifting skills at home. With multiple weight levels (from 2.3 pounds to 4.5 pounds), you can give your biceps and deltoids the ultimate treatment during exercise sessions.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Each dumbbell weighs 2.3 pounds alone and comes with four weight blocks (each weigh 0.55 pounds). If you want to increase weight, it's so easy: just add a weight block to each side of the dumbbell and you'll be good to go!

    Promising review: "I had been looking at these weights for a while. I wanted something adjustable because I don't have the room for much. One side of each handle has one big weight and eight small ones. You can add or take away whatever you want and they don't flop or slide around. I haven't weighted them but I think you can definitely make more weight combinations than they listed. Well worth the money!" —ErinR

    Get them from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in two weight sizes and four colors).

    9. Or heavier adjustable dumbbells, if you're ready to level up your strength training sessions. Lift between 2.5 pounds to 15 pounds with this set that'll be great for arm-focused workouts and easily fit in your home gym. No more using multiple sets anytime you're ready to break a sweat.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are a cleverly designed set of barbells that lets me easily adjust the weight. The weights increase in 2.5-pound increments from 2.5 pounds up to 15 pounds. They come with a tray for both storing the weights when not in use and also holding the plates that are not being used. I like not having to have individual bar weights in each of these sizes. It is a real money saver and space saver. They are comfortable to use and generally really terrific weights." —Eagle

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $169.99.

    10. A FlipBelt so you don't have to carry anything when you go running on a sidewalk or trail. It has four pockets that'll securely hold your AirPods case, cards, keys, and phone. You can finally focus on your mileage without losing essential items.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Another cool feature of this FlipBelt is that it's reflective, so it'll be helpful if you run in low visibility conditions. Love running on trails with wet branches and mud? No problem, because you can throw the FlipBelt in the washing machine when you're done working out.

    Promising review: "Love my FlipBelt. It fits my iPhone 7 that has an OtterBox on it, and did not budge once during my 6-mile run. At the four-mile mark, I even tried adjusting it because I thought there's no way this thing is staying in place so well, and it was still in the exact same spot as when I started my run. I also noticed I was able to run faster than usual and I think it's because I wasn't concentrating on holding my phone with its massive case on it. If you're in between sizes, I suggest going a size down. Can't wait to wear this for my upcoming half-marathons in the fall!" —kel07

    Get it from Amazon for $21.55+ (available in XXS–XXL and 13 colors).

    11. A Booty Kicker that'll ~raise the bar~ for virtual barre classes. Perfect for reverse lifts and Plié squats, this fold-flat piece of equipment is durable as hell thanks to gripping rubber feet and a steel construction design. If you're over using a chair to work your glutes and inner thighs, this gem will be a big help.

    Amazon, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Need weights during your next barre session? No problem, because this bar comes with six dumbbell racks at the bottom that'll fit 1-pound, 2-pound, and 3-pound weights.

    Promising review: "I didn’t have a chair that’s the proper height so I decided to try this alternative. I like that it is stable enough to use during the workout, but still light enough to pick up and move out of the way when switching between barre and floor exercises. It is bulky, but it easily folds up. It still takes up space when folded, but can fit in a closet, under a bed or even behind our couch. Glad I ordered because I can properly do the workouts now." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

    12. Resistance bands because they'll give your legs and butt one heck of a workout and wake up major muscles. They come in five resistance levels (X-Light, Light, Medium, Heavy, and X-Heavy) if you're looking for challenge and want to *feel the burn* while you're squatting and lunging away.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com, 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 $7.98+ (also available in a pink set).

    13. And a thicker pair, if you're ready to activate your hips, thighs, and glutes during your next lower body session. Slip these babies on if you want to take your deadlifts and squats to the next level. 🔥

    Ju’Nae Fit

    Ju’Nae Fit is a Black-owned business known for their comfy athletic apparel. They have colorful and super soft crop tops, bike shorts, leggings, and more run-friendly clothes.

    Promising review: "These are the perfect booty bands! They are thick and do not slip or roll like cheap, thin bands I’ve used in the past. Great for a ton of different leg and glute workouts— squats, donkey kicks, glute bridges, you name it! Package arrived quickly too! Would definitely recommend!" —Ju’Nae Fit Customer

    Get a set of two from Ju’Nae Fit for $30.

    14. A foldable Treadly 2 Pro Treadmill, so you don't have to cancel your workout on rainy or way-too-hot summer days. You can walk or jog up to 5 mph, move the handrail up or down (and yes, this means you can walk on the treadmill even with the rail *all the way down on the floor* for workouts), and track your daily progress in the Treadly App.

    Genevieve Scarano/BuzzFeed, GenevieveScarano/BuzzFeed, Genevieve Scarano / BuzzFeed

    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 still a little cold during the spring months) 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. Read more about this foldable treadmill in my Treadly 2 Pro review.

    Get it from Treadly for $849.

    15. A sturdy foam roller to help soothe tight muscles after virtual kickboxing, running on the treadmill, and more indoor workouts. It has triple grid massage zones that'll get to work on all sore areas, so you can enjoy your post-workout recovery time.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com, Amazon

    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 four colors).

    16. A high-impact sports bra that'll provide you with amazing support, thanks to criss-cross straps that keep your boobs in place, even if you're doing HIIT or running hard. Buh-bye bouncing and shifting during spring workouts, it's been real.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I like to run a lot (specially long distances) and I do HIIT every day, so a high impact sport bra is a necessity. I had the idea that in order to get a good sport bra that works for me, I needed to spend a lot of money and I was used to spend twice (or even more) for a bra that did half the job that this one does. It’s comfortable to wear (and easy to take off after working out) and as soon as you put it on you will feel that everything is in place and makes you feel good." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in sizes S–5X and six colors).

    17. A stationary bike with comfy seating, adjustable resistance, a multi-functional display, and a space-saving design. You may not be in the studio, but you can have a fun solo cycling session indoors.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "This bike is easy to assemble, which works out good for a person like me who is not very patient. I like the color too, it sort of adds an accent in my house with this black and red color, but it is not too big to take too much space in the house (that was my worry before we assembled it). It is comfortable to ride on, enough padding on the seat, and definitely an excellent tool to workout and burn some extra calories! " —Elaine

    Get it from Amazon for $299.99.

    18. Core sliders for days when you want to give your abs the ultimate treatment. Your transverse abdominis and obliques will be *on fire* after using these helpers for planks, push-ups, and mountain climbers.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "These gliding disc core sliders have been working out great! They are definitely taking my workouts to a new level and making me use my core like never before! You can definitely feel the burn while working out with them and target muscles that don’t normally get as much attention!" —Coleen

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

    19. A pair of fitness gloves because your hands need a little protection from blisters and calluses. Slip these babies on for weight training and pull-ups and crush your workout with ease.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "This was exactly what I was looking for. I use them for both lifting and HIIT. The extra wrist support helps with heavier weights. My old gloves left my hands sweaty, but this open back design is awesome. I highly recommend these gloves." —John Teves

    Get them from Amazon for $13.47 (available in five sizes and six colors).

    21. A budget-friendly fitness tracker to monitor your heart rate, count steps, and observe calories burned while you exercise. You can even access your health data by week or month, which can help you stick to your fitness goals *and* see your progress in a non-complicated format.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "If you want to start tracking your workouts, walks, steps, heartbeat, and sleep cycles, this is a great low cost option. It offers some control of music, you can view recent texts, set alarms and timers, and other stuff as well. The magnetic charger (charge it maybe once a week?) charges very fast. It's a solid fitness tracker that looks and feels great with some little bonuses." —Drew Alexander

    Get it from Amazon for $30.59+ (available in eight colors).

    22. A pair of performance joggers that'll minimize sweat while you hit up the treadmill or do barre in your living room. They're made with a comfy, moisture-wicking fabric to help you stay dry during your fitness routine. Repeat after me: No. More. Sweat. Stains.

    REI

    Promising review: "I've worn these joggers several times since I've gotten them and love them so much. Not only do they look good, they are extremely comfortable and soft to the touch. I actually ran a half marathon wearing these instead of running shorts this past weekend in 70-degree weather and there was no chafing and was very breathable. So happy when there was no pilling between the legs from a 13.1-mile run." —REI Customer

    Get them from REI for $84 (available in sizes XS–XL and nine colors).

    23. Compression socks, because you want to keep leg swelling at bay and run comfortably for long periods of time. They're also made with a breathable material to prevent moisture from getting in the way of your sweat session.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "You guys I love these! I'm a runner and for the past year, I have been suffering from shin splint pain not during my 5-mile runs, but right after, so I decided to buy a couple of these and give it a try! I started to wear a pair during my runs and a pair to sleep, man did this make a huge difference! The swelling has gone down and I feel amazing! I really do recommend these for runners!" —jose

    Get them from Amazon for $15.80+ (available in five sizes and nine colors).

    Amazon / Via amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "I practice hot yoga approximately two times per week. I bought this towel because beach towels just weren't working. They didn't fit correctly and they would always bunch up. Then I tried this towel and I'm in love! It absorbs all of the sweat, it fits my mat perfectly, I love the color, and it's actually affordable. Get this towel, you won't be disappointed." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98+ (available in six colors).

    Target

    Promising review: "I truly love the style of this jacket. It is light in weight and fits comfortably. My favorite features are the drawstring waistband, and it is water-repellent. The material is so soft and it is made with 80% recycled polyester. It is a great jacket that is decent for year-round wear depending on the nature of the weather." —Target Customer

    Get it from Target for $40 (available in sizes 1X–4X).

    27. An adjustable weight bench for various dumbbell exercises.

No more using the floor or a flimsy chair when you want to work on your upper body.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    It folds up for compact storage!

    Promising review: "I live in a studio apartment and had a full bench that I couldn’t stand looking at anymore. I wanted something just as functional but easy to store. This bench is perfect! I was afraid it wouldn’t be as sturdy as my other bench and that I may not be able to do step-ups safely on it. I could not have been more wrong. This bench is high quality and extremely sturdy. Folds down easily and comes fully assembled. It honestly has blown me away. Worth every penny. Slips right into my closet. With this, my power blocks, and resistance bands I can have a fully functioning gym set up available to me right in the closet of my studio apartment! Wish I would have purchased sooner." —Breanna

    Get it from Amazon for $159.99.

They are durable and comfy as well. This is a great buy for people who are looking for a nice workout but don’t want the gym. I live in an apartment. My neighbors can’t hear it below me so overall I say this is good quality for the price." —Brittany L.

    Get it from Amazon for $53.76+ (also available in a heavy duty set).

    30. An aerial yoga hammock that'll help you do inversions and more yoga positions basically anywhere at home. Whether you're in the backyard, garage, or living room, you'll get to recreate a studio-like atmosphere for flexibility and relaxation. 🧘‍♀️

    This yoga hammock is made with 5.5 yards of material, so you'll easily be able to get in and out of it during workouts.

    Promising review: "I just received this, but it is a wonderful yoga swing. It is a bit stretchier than the ones at the studio, but it does what it needs to do and I just hang it higher so I don't hit the floor with inversions.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I didn’t expect to love this thing so much! It has a spring like resistance on the foam back, so it makes working out — especially curl-ups — fun and if you put it on the tallest setting, the sit ups get so easy that you don’t even realize how much you are working out! Did this for half and hour while watching TV and didn’t have to take any breaks. I love this thing." —Amazon Customer

They're quite comfortable once you get them on, and they don't feel like they're going to fall off." —William White

    Amazon / Via amazon.com, Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is very lightweight and portable. It fits nicely on a runner rug next to my bed and doesn't move around when I use it. The settings are easy to adjust, and it is quiet. I use it in the morning while I catch up on the news. I was reluctant to get a piece of exercise equipment but am very glad that I did!" —Caren S.

    Get it from Amazon for $84.99.

    34. Push-up bars that'll feel way better than dumbbells or bare hands when you're doing push-ups on the floor.

    Amazon / Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "The first time I used them, I felt burn (the good kind) in the back/neck area. I looked up a diagram of musculature online, and it corresponded precisely with the trapezius muscles. I know that a product can't cure lazy, but knowing that I'm doing push-ups the right way and being able to feel the results makes me want to do more push-ups." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99.

    35. And Adjustable Bala Bangles to add a lil' resistance (not to mention style) to your virtual barre or Zumba sessions.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I got these for the days I am just going to Zumba and not weightlifting. They are as comfortable as they can be for wearing weights on the ankles or wrists. They are adjustable which is great because my wrists are small and these fit and can be tightened or loosened. They stay in place when I'm dancing which is what I wanted and why I got. They definitely increase the intensity of a Zumba style workout and I see an improvement in muscle tone since I started using them. Excellent product and worth the price." —Amazon Customer
