1. A compact folding treadmill that works well for apartments and anywhere space is at a premium. It may be smaller and less advanced than the hefty treadmills at the gym, but it packs in plenty of features that'll likely suit your at-home needs, including a 5-inch LCD display that shows speed, time, distance, and other metrics; 12 preset programs; and three manual incline settings. And when you're done, the running track folds up, with a pull-out knob that sturdily locks it into place.
2. A set of dumbbells with a stand, truly a must-have if you're planning on doing any sort of strength training at home. These can assist with your workouts in all sorts of ways, whether you're simply lifting or using them to increase the difficulty of other moves, like squats, and the stand makes them easy to store without taking up much space.
3. And a Kettle Gryp (as seen on Shark Tank!) that converts your dumbbell into a kettlebell so you can switch up your workouts without adding yet another heavy, clunky object to your living space.
4. A speed jump rope to help you master your double-unders and get your heart pumping from anywhere around the house or outside.
5. Or a cordless jump rope if space is more of an issue than speed, ensuring you can jump to your heart's content without whacking the floor, your furniture, or the family dog.
6. A portable strider that can be used while sitting or standing to work your arms, legs, core, and back muscles, all while taking up very little space! It features adjustable tension and a monitor to display your number of strides, calories burned, and workout time, and you can pedal forward or backwards to target different muscles.
7. A doorway exercise bar great for small spaces, as it takes up *zero* space on the floor but is always close at hand when you want to challenge your muscles. Though its most obvious use might be pull-ups and chin-ups, you can also move it closer to the ground for support while doing tricep dips, sit-ups, push-ups, and other moves.
8. An interactive Plankpad designed to work your entire body and build strength while using your phone or smart TV to play games using the Plankpad app, which syncs with the balance board so that the movements you perform control the games! Personally, I'll take anything that distracts me from the burning in my core during a plank.
9. An instructional yoga mat for days when you just can't make it to yoga class. This mat helps you out with graphics that clearly demonstrate 70 different yoga poses for easy reference, good for switching up your routine!
10. A weighted sports hoop that'll make you feel like you're back in middle school P.E. Strengthening your hips, abs, and legs has never been more fun.
11. A TRX Suspension Training System for bodyweight training at home OR on the go thanks to its portable design. You can use it for doing push-ups, pull-ups, planks, and more — all you need is somewhere to anchor it (like a door!).
12. A pair of core sliders designed to slide with ease as you perform core-centric moves like knee-tucks, mountain climbers, walking planks, and more, with just enough grip to stay put when you apply pressure.
13. An Echelon Smart Bike that'll make you *feel* like you're in the middle of a sweaty, intense cycling class without actually being surrounded by a ton of strangers. Some reviewers compare it to the Peloton bike and like this as a more affordable substitute.
It comes with a free 90-day trial to Echelon's membership with 3,000+ live and on-demand fitness classes, though some reviewers note that they actually use the Peloton app with this bike instead.
BuzzFeed Shopping editor Heather Braga has an Echelon bike and says she absolutely loves it. "The classes are super fun and engaging, the instructors are delightful and motivational, and the soundtracks for each class are fantastic. You can select your workout type (hills, speed, a mix of a variety of things) and the type of music you feel like sweating to (pop, '80s, '90s, rock, funk, hip hop, etc!). It's genuinely a nice community and a fun way to exercise!"
Another promising review: "Due to the pandemic that limits outdoor activities. I decided to look for an indoor cardio workout machine and end up getting the Echelon bike. To my surprise, assembly was a snap and performance was a five star. During operation the bike performs so quietly making it a perfect fit for our needs specially living in an apartment building. I definitely recommend this bike for cardio enthusiasts and for active individuals seeking for a gym-worthy bike offering a different degree of workout." —Cris
