    46 Products That Might Make You Want To Exercise More This Year

    Don't sweat it — you're about to get super motivated.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. The Ring Fit Adventure game that'll combine the fun of exploring a fantasy world and battling enemies with an action-packed workout.


    I've also been using this game as a way to supplement my trips to the gym. This may seem like a childish adventure from Nintendo, but JEEZ within moments I'm sweating my butt off. To play, you'll place a JoyCon into both the ring con and a leg strap so your movements are monitored. To move through each level you have to physically run in place and each time you "battle" an enemy you have to do 15 reps of an exercise of your choosing. For example, each time I complete a squat the enemy receives a "kick." It's so fun I don't realize I'm working out until the game reminds me to take a break and have some water. It even monitors your heart rate for you. It's more intense than you'd expect!

    2. A wall mount to display your hard-earned marathon medals and bibs or inspire you to wake up and start training for a 5K.

    Promising review: "Arrived today. Very easy to set up. I had it up on the wall in less than an hour. Looks great! I love that the medals can be hung below the bibs. I have 11 hung in total, which take up the entire rack. My only complaint is that I have 42 bibs hung and it is getting rather full-looking. Looks like I'll be ordering another bib display shortly... or run less races (and that's not happening). ;) Happy running, all!" —RocknRunner

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    3. Khloe Kardashian's book, Strong Looks Better Naked, that'll prove to you that ANYONE can break a sweat before the sun comes up — and like it!


    This book truly transformed my workout mentality. It made me want to get up super early and run before the chaos of the day began. I started right after finishing her book and have continued ever since! If Khloe can do it, why can't we?

    Promising review: "I bought this book not knowing much about it, except it was written by a Kardashian and I have a weakness sometimes of binge-watching their show. This book not only makes me see Khloe completely different, but this book is one of the most inspiring and motivating things I've read! After reading a chapter I found myself wanting to immediately work out, and become a kinder and driven person. I just happen to be a new mom working hard to lose the baby weight and stay positive, and this was the perfect book to keep me going when the going got tough and motivated me to not give up and push myself harder! HIGHLY recommend this awesome book!!!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99.

    4. A running belt that'll hold your necessities so you can focus on breaking your personal record instead of keeping track of whether you've lost your keys.,

    Promising review: "Love this belt! It is super comfortable and sturdy. I bought the belt to hold my iPhone 8 Plus and keys while I run. The iPhone 8 Plus is a tight squeeze but fits even in its OtterBox case. I love the hook to snap my keys on so they stay in place and I don’t have to worry about them falling out. I did not even find the need to flip the belt as my phone and keys felt secure and I wanted easier access to my phone. It fits snugly on my hip and the belt did not bounce around on my run even with my heavy phone inside. All in all super happy with this purchase. Worth every penny!" —Elise V. Ryding

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes 2XS–2XL and in nine colors).

    5. A fun gym bag you'll love because it'll fit all of your workout necessities and let fellow gym-goers know exactly what your priorities look like.


    Promising review: "This bag is incredible. it's light as air but fits everything you need for an overnight trip, the gym, or anything else. Such a great buy!" —Carmen H.

    Get it from for $19.99.

    6. A Simply Fit Board, so you can twist 'n' shout your way into a fitness routine you actually enjoy.,

    In my opinion, the hardest part about exercising is finding a workout that you find fun and actually want to spend time doing. Enter: the Simply Fit Board. You can use it to balance during planks, as support for push-ups, or to strengthen your core. You're gonna love it!

    Promising review: "Love this board! I use every day and it is a great workout. It's transportable, durable, and highly effective! My abs look amazing! You can work cardio, core, upper body and lower body in a great variety of workouts on YouTube designed for the Simply Fit Board — can't give higher praise for this one!" —Heidi Hogan

    Get it from Amazon for $14.80 (available in four colors).

    7. A set of yoga dice to add an element of surprise to your workouts and keep you on your toes (literally) each session.


    Promising review: "Great! Fun way to mix it up for home workouts and travel. The dice are big and chunky and easy to read. Recommended!" —Kirsten B.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.41.

    8. A water-resistant duffel bag you can pack all your must-have workout gear into and head out to the gym regardless of whether it's going to rain or snow.

    Hill City

    Promising review: "This is a neat bag that doesn't look too high brow for the gym, looks rather government-issue. It does have some nice features, the zippers and the water repellency are neat adds. The build quality is still suspect but as long as the stitching for the handles have been done with some stress testing at the plant, it looks pretty strong." —McFly

    Get it from Hill City for $148.

    9. A boxing game for the Nintendo Switch, so you can practice your left hook without anyone seeing you awkwardly punching at the air.


    I admittedly am someone who thrives while working out at the gym, but there are many exercises I've been dying to try and don't because I don't want to embarrass myself. Boxing is one of them. Luckily, I can start practicing my skills (and break a decent sweat!) at home while playing this super-fun game on the Nintendo Switch. I use this game as a way to mix up my exercises / when I don't feel like venturing out to the gym. I have to say, it's a SERIOUS workout. I'm usually sore for days after and have burnt up to 300 calories in 30 minutes! If you get tired of the provided songs, mute your TV and turn on your favorite workout playlist — a great hack, if you ask me!

    Get it from Nintendo for $49.99.

    10. Or actual boxing gloves that come in a ton of exciting colors, perfect for anyone who wants to knock around the bag and channel their inner–Muhammad Ali.,

    Promising review: "I don't honestly know if there are enough words to express how much I love these gloves! They are seriously the most comfortable gloves in the world. They have awesome quality and construction, these will last a long time. I went with the 10 oz. ones and it was the perfect match. They fit snugly with wraps on, which is exactly how I like them. I use these regularly both on the bag and in sparring matches and love them for both! Can't beat them!!!" —Ryan

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 8 oz.–16 oz. and in eight styles).

    11. A water bottle you can use as a foam roller and a way to stay hydrated — it'll be the 2-for-1 special you didn't realize you need in your life.

    mobotnation / Via, Nordstrom

    Promising review: "This is the best water bottle ever! I’ve been looking for a good straw water bottle and this one is perfect. Others sound funny and don’t get a good suction. This one comes with a plastic and stainless straw. I also can’t believe how awesome the quality of the foam roller is and actually use it way more often than I thought I would. Also, love products made by woman!" —ajgreen

    Get it from Nordstrom for $49.99 (available in four styles).

    12. A new outfit from Outdoor Voices, including a bra and leggings, so you can look and feel your best when you arrive at the gym.

    Outdoor Voices

    You can choose from three different bra styles and four types of leggings to put together your perfect workout ~look~. While one pair of leggings usually costs $75, when you by Outdoor Voices' Rec Kit you'll get a full outfit for $95. Not bad, I tell ya ;)

    Get it from Outdoor Voices for $95 (both bras and leggings available in sizes XS–XL and in eight colors).

    13. A floating "rise and grind" sign you can hang right next to your side of the bed for a reminder it's time to get your butt up and go!

    BurntBranch / Etsy

    Get it from BurntBranch on Etsy for $29+ (available in three sizes).

    14. A high impact sports bra so you can warm up for your spin class without your boobs hitting you in the face or hurting your back.

    Good American

    Get it from Good American for $59 (available in sizes 0–7 and in three styles).

    15. A speckled sports bra designed for low impact workouts you can wear for a brisk walk or yoga class then leave on for the rest of the day — less laundry!


    Promising review: "I love this bra! I was hesitant about the straps on the back being functional, while they are very cute; but it fits well and holds up fine during yoga (although I won't be using this for any more intensive training). I have the matching leggings and I really like the pattern, and the Powervita fabric is so nice!" —kr2107

    Get it from Athleta for $39.99 (available in sizes 2XS–XL and two styles).

    16. A subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited, because what's a workout with a sick playlist to pump you up?


    Honestly, you could probably just dance around your room to Taylor Swift or Cardi B for an hour and get in just as much cardio as if you went for a run. Think about it. With this subscription you will have access to any song at any time, and if you have an Amazon Echo you can ask Alexa to play your workout playlist for you!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 a month.

    17. A pair of wireless headphones, so you can get ~in the zone~ without tripping over any pesky wires.


    Nothing pisses me off more than when I'm working out and the wire from my headphones gets stuck on something and they get RIPPED out of my ears. I need to step out of the Stone Age and upgrade to a wireless pair like these.

    Promising review: "Fantastic headphones! They stay charged FOREVER! I had them fully charged and used them for an hour on average 6 times a week and did not need to charge them again for a month! The only complaints I have is when doing certain exercises they tend to slide off my head a little so I have to adjust them a few times." —Jessica Johnston

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in eight colors).

    This is also one of our BuzzFeed Reviews picks for the best wireless headphones!

    18. An Oculus Rift or Oculus Quest VR gaming system, so you can exercise at home but still feel like you're completely somewhere else!

    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    Ah, the magic of technology. From boxing and speed skating to dodgeball and combat fighting, there are tons of simulation games for the Oculus Quest that'll help you work up a sweat at home.

    Get them from Oculus: Rift for $399.99, Quest for $399.99.

    And check out one BuzzFeed writer's full review of the Oculus Rift here.

    19. A Fitbit Charge 2 to help you maximize your workout by learning more about your personal fitness level and focusing on heart rate zones like fat burn, cardio, and peak. A must-have for anyone who wants data to support their workout goals!


    Promising review: "I love mine! I am still fascinated with checking my info frequently and it works to motivate me on sluggish days. I wasn't sure I could get 10,000 steps a day in so I set it to 8,000 steps a day but I am managing to exceed the 10,000 on most days as I am averaging more than that. I have started running in addition to doing my 2x/ week weight workouts and still occasionally doing my at home DVD workouts. It also helps to make sure I am drinking enough water (although this requires that you log in how much you drink). I love the reminders! It buzzes me to let me know when I have hit my goal and to remind me to get my 250 steps in per hour. I also can log what i am eating and I was surprised to see I eat more calories than I thought. I am not currently trying to lose weight as I am breastfeeding my baby so I am not worried about that for the moment but I do want to keep working out to get back in shape. This is great for motivation, for tracking so I can see how I am doing and then when I go back in the log I can see how well I have done." —Delia

    Get it from Amazon for $143.99+ (available in two sizes and seven colors).

    20. A Peloton bike that'll allow you to experience live cycling classes in real time with an instructor without leaving your house.


    I am SO interested in trying out one of these bad boys. I'm a sucker for the commercials and have even gone as far as downloading the Peloton app in an attempt to recreate the classes on a stationary bike at my gym — but it's just not the same as being in your own home. If you already own one of these bikes, can I come over and give it a go? Kthanks.

    Promising review: "Peloton, you have taken things to the next level... so happy I have a variety of classes, not only spinning. I’ve owned my bike for two years and my only complaint (at that time) was variety beyond the bike. I now have a new love for bootcamp, running, strength, stretching and yoga, and of course spinning. We dropped our family gym membership just a month ago and we have dedicated space in our house to have our tread, bike, and free weights. This was a game-changer! Thank you for offering what we all need." —Anonymous

    Get it from Peloton for $2,245+ (available in four packages).

    21. A gallon water bottle with motivational time markers to encourage you to stay hydrated before, during, and after your workout.,

    Kacey Musgraves even posted about having/loving this exact water bottle! So, you can be both *happy* you're drinking lots of water and *sad* you always have to pee. Such is life!

    Promising review: "I'm in love with this bottle! Why? Because I only need to fill it ONCE and have my hydration requirements are met. The design is trendy, the motivational quotes help me stay on track AND it's pretty much portable. I'd recommend using the hand bar instead of the little rope thing because a full bottle IS HEAVY! Love it and would recommend it for my fellow water laggers :) Enjoy!" —Anisa

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95+ (available in 3 sizes and 35 styles).

    22. Asics Gel Venture sneakers that have a built-in cushion to keep you feeling supported at all times. They also come in a ton of fun colors so you better believe your workout style will remain on point.,

    A few years ago I broke my foot and found I needed major support from my sneakers, not just for working out but for everyday use. I bought my first pair of Asics and never looked back. They are cushioned, comfortable, and exactly what you'd want in a sneaker — and over 3.7K Amazon customers agree!

    Promising review: "I love these shoes! I am hard to please due to plantar fasciitis, fallen arches, and lots of screws in my ankle. Great arch support and really beautifully designed shoe. The photo doesn't do them justice. They make me happy looking at them and wearing them. I only wear them to work out and they feel great! Great price too!!" —T. Discosola

    Get them from Amazon: women's sizes for $59.95+ (available in sizes 6–11 and in 10 styles) or men's sizes for $54.50+ (available in sizes 6–15 and in 16 styles)

    23. Or Adidas Cloudfoam Pure Running Shoes that'll leave your feet feeling ~heavenly~ after each mile. You can slip right into these without even wasting time fumbling with laces!,

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE these running shoes. They are extremely lightweight, feels like you are running on air yet with support. Super cute, look exactly as pictured and are true to size. I always wear a 6 and the 6 fit me perfectly. I would order these 100 times over, actually contemplating getting another pair in a different color just because these are so perfect. I’ve had them for over two months and they have not worn out at all. Wipes clean and doesn’t stain which is amazing!! I regularly run outside so I destroy my running shoes, these I’ve just taken a wet paper towel to and they are good as new! Sooo so happy with this purchase!" —Kat

    Get them from Amazon for $45.99+ (available in women's sizes 5–11 and 25 styles).

    24. A pair of weighted bangles, so you can feel freakin' fabulous as you accessorize your next workout.


    How CUTE are these? They are technically weights to add additional resistance to your workout, but they are also very stylish! You can wear them on your wrists or around your ankles during at-home yoga for an extra boost during your routine.

    Promising review: "These weights are incredible – absolutely stunning! Such great quality too. I got them for walking and yoga but I think I am going to wear them everywhere! They are very comfy and soft to the touch. And I LOVE the packaging. They come with a free bag to carry them in. I am definitely going to buy more colors." —Jackie

    Get them from Amazon for $49 (available in four colors).

    25. A thick yoga mat, so you'll be as comfortable as possible when you get down for a set of sit-ups or to stretch.,

    I have one of these yoga mats and it has been a game-changer. Whether I'm taking it to an actual class or using it to follow a workout on YouTube at home, I know I'm not going to slip and hurt myself (can you tell I'm accident-prone?). Its many cute style options are for sure an added bonus!

    Promising review: "Love love love love this!! I'm 5'10" with LONG legs, so regular mats don't work for me. I step off them and they're not big enough. This one is amazing...nice and thick. Once I washed/prepped it, there's not slippage. You do have to wash/scrub it or it starts out pretty slick. But totally worth the money. I haven't used any other of my mats since. Thinking about getting another one to leave at my office." —Careyidaho

    Get it from Amazon for $22.48+ (available in 34 styles).

    26. A Bosu Balance Trainer that comes with a workout DVD to provide some guidance on this whole "new year, new me" exercise situation., Amazon

    I was first introduced to this product via watching the Kardashians work out on Instagram (yes, really) and I've grown to love it! It's really simple to use — I like to do my crunches on it, as it gives me more back support. There are tons of other ways to break a sweat using this, so def consider adding it to your shopping cart.

    Promising review: "Omg...I love this. I just did 5k race with my son and his friends, it's called The Inflatable5k, meaning you run 3 miles while having inflatable obstacles to run, jump, or climb upon. I did it, but I have to say it was harder then I thought to balance on a balloon! I bought this wanting to improve, but I was not expecting all this FUN. I really love it! It's so easy on my joints — in fact when I use this in place of my step for aerobics DVDs, my knee pain is gone...for real! Unexpected bonus!!" —Kat

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in 11 styles).

    27. A faux fur plush zip-up jacket that'll keep you cozy as you trek back and forth to the gym or your favorite workout class.

    Old Navy

    Promising review: "This jacket is amazing! Not only is it stylish but very warm. I did originally buy an XS and returned for a S as I wanted more room to wear with sweatshirts or sweaters. The material is soft and cozy. The color is beautiful!!" —LasVegasMommy

    Get it from Old Navy for $40+ (available in sizes XS–2XL, in regular, tall, and petite lengths, and three colors).

    28. A set of exercise sliders, so instead of sliding into someone's DMs in 2020 you can focus on YOU and your fitness goals.


    This is a prime example of something my gym has that I've always been too scared to try (for fear of quite literally falling on my face). The sliding technique used with this workout tool is great for building up your core — and actually looks I'm gonna order a pair of these gliding discs to test out on my wood floors in the privacy of my own home. Who's with me?!

    Promising review: "This seems like a simple idea, but I would never have thought of it. I like the ability to exercise arms, back, chest, and core in so many variations. You can cater movement based on how you position yourself and move the gliders; the nuance of movement is near limitless. I tried it on my hardwood floor, but prefer the easier gliding on carpet. I compare it to my ab roller and find it to be an interesting alternative. I can keep my hands with palms downward open flat or place my fists on it for slightly different stressing of the hand and forearm muscles." —Charlie

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $10.97.

    29. An easy-to-use ab roller that'll work on any surface, so you'll have ZERO excuses not to give it a try., Amazon

    Essentially a tire with handles, this item is going to roll right into your workout routine. It's great for strengthening your abs, shoulder, arms, and back — which is pretty unbelievable based on how compact it is. Sign me UP.

    Promising review: "The little ab wheel is deceptively simple and sturdy. It looks like a kid's toy, but with proper daily use, it will give you a serious workout. It will strengthen not only your core (abs and lower back) but your arms, shoulders, legs, and entire body as well. In addition, it will give you an aerobic workout, because your heart and lungs will want to join in the fun!" —Whizzets

    Get it from Amazon for $13.50+ (available in two colors).

    30. Exercise cards, so your workout will always already be laid out and waiting for you. Procrastination? I don't know her.


    I always try to map out my exercise plan before I hit the gym, otherwise I'll idle around and wander aimlessly from machine to machine. I'm even more likely to waste precious time trying to find a routine to follow when I'm at home. These cards will solve your workout-planning woes immediately!

    Promising review: "These cards are *amazing.* I love that I can schedule my workout week sensibly and safely — I really appreciate the tips on the backs of the cards! The calorie burn is accurate, if not a bit conservative. Lifting heavier will burn more, but the suggested burn is near perfect for lighter lift days. The HIIT and Core cards are such a nice bonus, too! My favorite part of this item is that I can do my workout at my pace without any annoying outdated music or chatting from a trainer, like you'd find on a DVD. I get burned out easily from repetition (as in, the same dry jokes or WOO! in a DVD), and have bagged MANY workout programs, but these cards are perfect for keeping me excited about my fitness!" —Lori McCarthy

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    31. A powder-coated kettlebell that'll have you singing "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers after one swing.


    Don't believe me? Order one of these and give it a try. This seemingly harmless workout tool makes for a serious strength-training sesh.

    Promising review: "This is actually a great kettlebell for the price. It's also much smaller than other coated kettlebells I have, so great space-wise. The handle is a perfect size for two hand grabbing, not all of my kettlebells are. I was worried the handle might not be smooth, but it is powder coated and has a great feel when I swing it. I'm going to order more before they disappear." —The Great Buzzwami

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in 5–50 pounds).

    32. An exercise ball, so you can work on your balancing act in between episodes of 90 Day Fiancé.,

    Exercise balls are a must-have for any home workout! You can use them to improve your core, for overall balance, alongside a Pilates video, and much more. Not to mention they're pretty fun to just bounce on.

    Promising review: "I can't even begin to say enough good things about this stability ball! My back has gotten so much stronger since I started using it as an office chair for one or two hours per day! I work from home and my back had gotten incredibly weak, to the point that I could only walk 1/4 mile before the pain would get EXTREMELY bad and unbearable. After two weeks of using the ball, I can now walk 1 mile before pain begins — that is a HUGE improvement and has made an even bigger impact on my happiness and quality of life. I might add that it is REALLY fun to bounce on it! I having been having a ball with it (pardon the pun)." —Valerie

    Get it from Amazon for $18.90+ (available in 3 sizes and 10 colors).

    33. A pair of CALIA by Carrie Underwood leggings you'll find to be soft, stretchy, and supportive, making you want to slip into 'em for your morning workout.

    caliabycarrie / Via, CALIA

    I have a pair of leggings from Calia by Carrie Underwood and they are one of my favorites to work out in. The material is unbelievably soft and do a really great job at wicking away sweat during even the most intense workouts. I've worn them to spin classes, to run, and while exercising at home. They're definitely a splurge-worthy pair you'll be happy you invested in — I mean, they have POCKETS!

    Get them from CALIA by Carrie Underwood for $70 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    34. An upper-body workout bar, so you can easily recreate that scene from 50 Cent's "In Da Club" video where he does all of those pull-ups., Amazon

    Don't act like you don't know exactly what I'm referring to! Anyways, this body workout bar can transform any doorway into a personal gym.

    Promising review: "I live by this iron gym. If you ever need a way to build confidence before embarrassing yourself at the gym with wrong form and two measly pull-ups, grind it out in your home and watch the improvement with this product. It’s affordable and very stable. I weigh about 205 lbs and it holds my weight perfectly! I started out doing maybe two pull-ups and I practiced and I’m now doing 20 a clip. I’ve done it and you can too!" —Marcus

    Get it from Amazon for $36.49.

    35. A Series 5 Apple Watch that'll motivate you to exercise and burn a particular amount of calories each day (if that's aligned with your goals), but make it ~fashun~.

    I am actually OBSESSED with my Apple Watch. It is the number one thing that has changed the way I exercise. I got mine two years ago and have worn it every single day since – not kidding. It has so many great features on it that support working out at home, not to mention you can add Mickey or Minnie Mouse to the watch face. ;)

    Promising review: "I love the always on display on the watch. I went from Series 2 to this so it was a huge upgrade. It works well for fitness tracking and displaying messages without having to pull out your phone. The huge accessory market makes it easy to change the look of your watch with cases and bands. If you don’t have one and love apple products this is a great device for you." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $384 (available in two sizes and three colors).

    36. A jump rope designed to bring out the badass in you — and help you get in a great cardio workout.


    Uh, hello, there's a skull and crossbones on the handles of this jump rope! So freakin' cool! It is ideal for those interested in cardio training and is very lightweight — great for storing in your junk drawer and busting out when you're ready to sweat. Plus, it has 4.9K five-star reviews on Amazon, so you know it's legit.

    Promising review: "Very good-quality materials are used, starting from the steel rope, which is encased in some sort of heavy-duty, slightly clear plastic to the smooth bearings. The finish of the rope is very slick and seems like it'll hold up a long time. If you grab the handle and spin it, the bearing will go 10 revolutions easily, speaking to the quality of the bearings. I've only had it a couple of weeks and it is holding up great. For $10, probably one of the best ropes you can get. And from what I read about the owners of the company and their warranty, seems like these folks will be more than happy to get a new rope over to you ASAP if your current one breaks for whatever reason." —Roman

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    37. A medicine ball, that'll help you take your crunches to the next level and really feel the burn — get ready to look like The Rock ;)., Amazon

    Promising review: "With a new baby I found myself doing a lot of upper body exercises while holding my little one. While this is a great upper-body and potentially full-body workout, I found the baby to be a little too squirmy to be effective so I decided to pick up this medicine ball. It was a great choice. It's grippy, compact, and effective. It also doesn't have a tendency to spit up on me while doing chest presses, which is a big plus. Best part — this ball doesn't complain if I accidentally drop it. Honestly — this is a great basic medicine ball. The rubber skin provides great grip. No 'heavy spots,' with the weight evenly distributed across the ball. There are plenty of quick exercises you can do at home to do a full-body workout with the benefit of building both slow-twitch and fast-twitch muscle. Ball seems plenty durable and should last a good long time. Great purchase. Thinking of buying another in a different weight." —Todd W.

    Get it from Amazon for $28.50+ (available in 10 weights).

    38. An 11-piece set of resistance bands, excellent for focusing on working your glutes — or anything else, really!


    You can work out SO many different parts of your body using these stretchy little guys — and you don't even have to leave your bedroom.

    Promising review: "I have had these for a few weeks now and I must say I'm thoroughly impressed with the packaging and quality of these bands. You get everything you see in the product pictures and it is exactly as advertised. There is an instructional pamphlet that details several different exercises possible with these bands with images of the different setups. The foam bars are sturdy and I had no trouble getting a good workout from using the bands with the bars. There isn't really anything I can fault this product on. It is truly a terrific exercise product that will get you results if you put in the effort of using it. A plus is that it is so mobile and compact in the storage bag that I leave it by the television set so that I can get in a little exercise while I am watching" —W. Kwok

    39. Mario Tennis Aces for Nintendo Switch, which is so fun you'll forget you're actually exercising and want to play it. Imagine that?


    Step on the court with Mario, Luigi, and the rest of the classic squad and get ready to break a sweat and have a great time! You can even purchase handheld tennis rackets to get the full experience.

    Promising review: "I'm not a fan of sports games, but Mario Tennis Aces surprised me. It plays just like standard tennis, but incorporates many different types of moves, an energy bar, trick shots, and special moves that all make it feel more like a fighting game. It's incredibly fun to play with friends and has a substantial story mode as well. Check this game out, it might surprise you with how fun it is." —chickfred

    40. A trendy at-home Mirror workout that'll probably become your fave purchase of 2020 thanks to its ability to bring interactive classes into your house without also adding a clunky piece of equipment.

    I have read SO much about this incredible product and am personally dying to try one out. You can connect it to your Apple Watch to monitor your heart rate in real time, work out to customized playlists, and get real-time feedback from certified trainers. I men, my gosh, there are 20+ different genres of classes to choose from! I also love how chic and futuristic it looks! You can also add up to six profiles so you and all your roomies can join in on the fun.

    Promising review: "The Mirror is the best investment I’ve made in quite some time. It is extremely easy to use. The set up was a breeze. I’ve only had it a little over a week and I am using it daily even if running short on’s easy to even do a 15 minute class! I also love I can do multiple classes one for cardio and then add on a short stretch or toning class. Basically, I feel I control what I want to do each day fitting into my schedule rather than working around classes at the gym. And for a family this is far less expensive each month than a multi-person gym membership. I’m thrilled with The Mirror!!! Even had a friend join me for a class and she loved it too!!" —Ronda Stratis Elkins

    41. Marble dumbbells that are fancy, fabulous and quite possibly too pretty to actually use.

    Free People

    I'm pretty basic — I won't lie about that — and so I am VERY into these marble dumbbells. They seem like a must-have accessory for any home gym, don't you think? Each one is crafted with natural marble stone, ensuring your next workout will be as bougie as possible.

    42. A lightweight windbreaker with weather-resistant protection, a must for anyone looking to add early morning bike rides or hikes into their routine.


    Promising review: "This is my all time favorite jacket. Goes with me everywhere I go, it’s packable enough to not even second guess myself if I should bring it or not. I use it mainly for bike rides around town and any trips I might need a shell to go over some insulation. Works awesome for how minimal this jacket is." —Marti

    Get it from Patagonia for $99 (available in men's sizes XS–XXL and in seven styles and in women's sizes XS–XL and in eight styles).

    43. A crystal-infused water bottle, so you can sip on some ~good vibes~ while crushing the elliptical.

    Free People

    Promising review: "This seems like such a frivolous purchase but the product is truly exceptional. I would not have purchased based on online photos but I happened to run across one in the Free People store and I was impressed by how heavy and thick the glass is. I am in love with it! There is a sleeve to protect the glass so I wouldn’t worry about it being too fragile. I ordered the quartz and I’m in awe at how beautiful it is." —elliewills_908

    Get it from Free People for $80 (available in four styles).

    Promising review: "I really like how bright they are when I'm out on my early morning runs. I've purchased other lights in the past and they just don't compare. I haven't had to change them yet and I run three to four mornings a week for the last month and a half." —Speedy
