    1. A pack of five lightweight, stretchy resistance bands for toning up your legs, butt, arms, and abs. They're suitable for a wide variety of exercises, and come in five cool colors and resistance levels.


    Promising review: "Great set of booty bands! You can really feel the difference in the resistance between the bands. I love that they are clearly labeled for difficulty (x-light, light, medium, heavy, x-heavy) and color-coded. They come with a great pouch that fits the bands easily. I store them in the pouch and hang it in my workout area. This pouch would make it great for travel, too! I’ve used the bands a few times and don’t have any issues with rolling or loss of resistance yet. I feel like they’re very durable. The booty bands came nicely packaged in a box with pictures on the back of basic exercises you could do with the bands so you can start using them right away!" —Jenny

    Price: $12.99

    2. A luxury performance cork yoga block set designed by *actual* yoga instructors, so you know you're getting the real deal. Each block set comes with a cotton yoga strap and downloadable Perfect Posture videos to help get you started no matter your skill level.

    Reviewer using the luxury performance cork yoga blocks

    Promising review: "The name says it all: luxury, because yes, these yoga blocks feel luxurious. These blocks are clearly made from a high-quality cork—they are very dense, without being heavy or cumbersome. They are the right density and firmness to provide the proper amount of support for all poses, including forward bends, handstands, etc., and are also great for sitting. I always experienced wrist pain with the foam blocks that I used to use. My wrist pain completely vanished with the Body by Yoga cork yoga blocks. As an added bonus, the set also includes a yoga strap—which again, feels luxurious, and makes my old strap seem laughable. Do yourself a favor and buy these blocks, you will be so glad you did." —Brian

    Price: $36.99 (available in five side design styles)

    3. An adjustable, tangle-free, rapid-speed jump rope complete with ball bearings and ergonomic foam handles. It's portable, lightweight, and great for exercising anytime, anywhere., Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a jump rope that the entire family can use! My husband and I needed new motivation for getting exercise, and using this jump rope also gives us a great excuse to get outside. We take turns trying to out-jump one another, but we definitely still need some more practice. The cord is long enough for my tall husband, but it adjusts easily for our children to use. The handles are comfortable to hold. It is a very good quality jump rope, and has decidedly been a good purchase." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $8.99+ (available in four colors)

    4. A pair of buttery soft high-waisted compression workout shorts with deep hidden pockets to safely store your earbuds and phone while you run, bike, hike, do yoga, or partake in just about any sweat sesh your heart desires.,

    Promising review: "Affordable, functional, and cute? These shorts have it all! My absolute favorite thing is the band on the leg that prevents them from riding up between your thighs. So far I’ve worn these on a mile-long walk and did a thirty-minute cardio HIIT exercise and I didn’t have to pull them up or down the entire time. Guess what else? They’re also SQUAT-PROOF! The leopard print ones specifically (I can’t attest to other colors) have a white lining on the inside so it may appear white when stretched out but they are not see-through!!" —Savanna

    Price: $16.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and nine colors)

    5. A state-of-the-art Fitbit activity tracker for keeping track of your heart rate, monitoring your pace as you walk, and measuring calorie burn with every step you take (GPS included). You can even track your skin temp at night while you sleep, and best of all, it's waterproof.


    Promising review: "This product worked as expected out the box. No problem syncing with my multiple year old LG V20 phone using the Fitbit app. There is no other fitness tracker on the planet that offers GPS tracking and touch-free payment for this price point. The sleep tracking seems to work great so far, and I love being able to see my heart rate information on Strava. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone looking for a full-time fitness tracker with GPS capabilities." —Cody

    Price: $99.95 (available in two colors)

    6. A pair of gel-padded, inner glove hand wraps great for boxing, MMA, and kickboxing since they keep your wrists secured with a long velcro strap *and* feature individually stitched finger openings for max comfort.


    Promising review: "A great pair of gloves that’s made of good quality. Very nice and comfy; I even use it for push-ups so my hands are not on the floor directly. I really like it and use it in my work out daily." —Mena

    Price: $9.99 (available in two sizes and four colors)

    7. A Fitness Insanity ab roller kit including a foam knee mat, push-up bars, resistance bands, and an at-home workout guide for strengthening and toning your whole body from the comfort of your floor. Who needs a gym when you've got one of these beauties?, Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a mini-gym in a box. Me being a stay-at-home mom and currently doing e-learning with my five-year-old son, I had to cancel my gym membership and start working out from home. This ab roller and push-up bar is perfect to start toning and burning calories and because it’s compact, it doesn’t take up space in your home. Just store it in the closet when you’re done. Love it." —Phasion

    Price: $25.97

    8. A versatile weighted workout bar that you can add to pretty much any exercise routine to help improve your balance and stability while developing your core strength., Amazon

    Promising review: "I've been meaning to buy a bar for a while now, for dead lifts, squats, cleans, presses, etc. I wanted a shorter bar as the full-length bar and my family room light fixture had a misunderstanding. I bought two different sizes, fifteen pounds and twenty pounds. Having two bars makes it quick and easy to switch between exercises. I find the bar easier to use than free weights for many exercises. The grip is comfortable and the bar fits under my sofa when not in use. I roll it out, use it, and when done I roll it back under." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $22.44+ (available in 11 styles)

    9. A powerful battle conditioning rope featuring heat-shrink handles and special nylon sleeves to keep it in pristine condition for years of amazing arm and core-strengthening sessions.,

    Promising review: "Phenomenal battle ropes! I installed these ropes in my garage gym and they get used daily. Most ropes don't come with the outer sleeve which is a disappointment. The sleeve will extend the life of the ropes drastically and prevent them from snagging on concrete burrs or wearing prematurely. I also love the form-fitted handles; they are easy to grab and allow for a multitude of positions. You will love these as much as I do." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $99.99+ (available in six sizes)

    10. An extra-wide, extra-long yoga mat that's much thicker than your average mat, meaning you won't "sink in" during your sun salutations and put strain on your back or joints. Bonus: it gives you plenty of room to stretch out no matter your height.,

    Promising review: "I am in LOVE with this mat. I practice Bikram Hot Yoga and am generally annoyed with my feet having to touch the studio floor while in certain postures. This is large and roomy. I can stretch out on this with no worry of touching the ground." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $28.99+ (available in four colors)

    11. An anti-burst, anti-slip stability ball built with professional quality PVC material that withstands even the most rigorous of exercises—whether you're doing a full HIIT routine, in need of a quirky new office chair, or just want to crack your back.

    Review photo of the silver stability ball

    Promising review: "This is as simple as it gets. A great product for a great price. The ball comes in a small box and extra 'stoppers' (plastic pieces that stops the air flow), a stopper remover, and even a two-way hand pump. The ball is very solid and very comfortable. The material provides a nice grip, so you don't feel like you're slipping all over the place. If you're doing core work, I suggest you fill it up more than you think—you want just a little bit of 'give' so you can get the best core workout." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $14.97+ (available in five sizes and 11 colors)

    12. A compact dumbbell and free weight stand that is both sturdy and space-saving. Bonus: it won't wobble when taking pieces of equipment on and off, so stack away.

    Review photo of the dumbbell and free weight stand

    Promising review: "Very nice rack. Good deal at the price. I had no issues putting it together. It is very sturdy and saves floor space and stubbed toes. Very pleased and wondering why it took me so long to get a rack." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $48.99+

    13. A pack of soft athletic tape to both prevent and support strains and sprains without leaving sticky glue residue all over your skin. The compression bandage material also helps to control swelling and stop bleeding quickly., Amazon

    Promising review: "Due to the pandemic and the closing of my gym, I was forced to buy weights wherever I could. I've purchased a lot of cast iron dumbbells and kettle bells that have very rough surfaces. I've used this product to wrap the handles and grip points on all my weights. The result: The Perfect Grip. This tape is not sticky or tacky. It wraps extremely well and if done correctly will last you a very long time between replacements (based on use). I keep a spare roll around in my junk drawer as this does have about 101 uses, too!" —Colin

    Price: $11.99

    14. A stylish padded sports bra tank that's lightweight and supportive without being restrictive. It comes in *so* many cute colors, you may want to buy more than one.,

    Promising review: "Amazing for the gym. Honestly I’m in love with this top! It fits perfectly! The material is thick and supportive. I’m surprised how good the material is. I’m totally going to be purchasing more. Also you can totally wear this daily, you would never know it’s gym material." —Stephanie

    Price: $18.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 23 colors)

    15. A wide mouth, long-lasting BPA-free Nalgene water bottle for all of your favorite adventures and outings. Stay hydrated with this leak-proof, easy-to-clean baby that's totally impact resistant.,

    Promising review: "I have one of these but purchased this one on Amazon because I liked the color scheme. These are great! 1000mL is a good amount of H2O to carry without feeling too heavy. Even when full, I'll typically carry this by the lid ring and so far it's held up! I like the wide mouth; it makes it easy to drink from and clean. I also let this one tumble in my truck or work bag and have not yet had a leak. I've dropped it a few times too, and while it got a scuff mark, it didn't scratch too badly or break. Nice!" —Van

    Price: $11.99 (available in 25 colors)

    16. A deep tissue foam roller that uses trigger point technology to really get into those tough, hard-to-reach spots while also helping to increase blood flow, loosen knots, and deliver a superior massage without the need of anyone else's hands., Amazon

    Promising review: "I've only used this once so far, so I can't comment on how well it holds up. But holy crap!!! I think it's gotten knots out I've had for 10 years. Using it was absolute heaven. I actually HEARD muscle knots popping around, which sounds gross, but feels wonderful. I've tried other massager type things, but nothing has really worked. It also helped me stretch out my thoracic and lumbar areas of my back which is going to help me get my back bends deeper in yoga without putting stress on the lower back. Update: I’ve had it almost a year and a half now, use it somewhat regularly, and it’s in great shape! Really holds up!" —Sarah Beth

    Price: $26.99 (available in 14 colors)

    17. An adjustable, fast-folding, strength training bench designed with seven back positions and three seat positions for an incredible full-body workout, making it a must-have for your home gym.,

    Promising review: "Wow, love love LOVE! 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. This thing doesn’t budge when doing step-ups or any other exercises. 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. Great quality bench!" —Breanna

    Price: $149.79

    18. A pack of portable push-up bars because it's so much easier to work your arms and core when you have cushioned handles to alleviate any wrist pain or strain, plus they won't slide around no matter the surface.

    Reviewer using the portable push- bars

    Promising review: "These were purchased for a friend who has a wrist injury and cannot do normal push-ups. The handles disassemble and can lie flat, which makes them super easy to pack and unpack and also is more environmentally friendly (as the company uses a smaller package to ship them). Assembly takes about five seconds—the parts snap into place. The grip is foam and seems strong and stable. They wouldn't slide around at all, even after I applied a reasonably strong horizontal force to them. The foam feels thick and firm, and is unlikely to rip." —John

    Price: $11.99

    19. An awesome kettlebell grip that clamps onto any dumbbell you can get your hands on, making it a great travel or on-the-go fitness accessory., Amazon

    Promising review: "I use this when staying in hotels on business trips. Being able to convert dumbbells into kettlebells allows me to expand my workout options. Compact and lightweight for travel. Well-built. Comfortable grip. One grip and you're able to choose the weight to work with. No issues with heavy weight dumbbells. Can do most kettlebell exercises. A few of my favorite KB exercises are KB swings, sumo deadlift high pulls, and figure eights." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $34.95

    20. A nonslip hot yoga towel for those extra sweaty workouts where you need something strong to absorb excess moisture and keep your mat lasting longer.


    Promising review: "I have been more than pleasantly surprised. Besides being absorbent, and making me feel a bit more secure, the towel is really soft to sit or lie on. And in the summer heat, it keeps me from the sticky feeling that lying on the mats can give. I have washed and dried it a couple of times already, and it has laundered beautifully. No shrinking or loss of softness, no pilling or anything. I'm very happy with it." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $8.50+ (available in two sizes and six colors)

    21. A punching bag set so you can safely take out all the pent-up stress you've been hanging onto throughout this pandemic.

    Reviewer using the punching bag set

    Promising review: "Super easy to assemble. I am not super handy but assembled as my husband and 17-year-old son watched me. It even comes with the tools you need! That was a beautiful thing! Doesn't take much space; we are limited on space and this is the perfect size for our small room. All of us are getting a great upper body workout. Overall, we think this was a great purchase and a really good value." —Nick

    Price: $42.68+ (available in six styles)

    22. A large cross-body fanny pack with multiple zipper pockets to keep your phone, water bottle, keys, sunglasses, and wallet safely stashed and snug during long outdoor runs, hikes, or excursions.

    Review photo of the water blue fanny pack

    Promising review: "For someone who never writes reviews, I sure look to them for guidance. So I'm happy to report that this fanny pack is spectacular. Not only is it roomy, it's sturdy, convenient, and stylish!" —Michelle

    Price: (available in multiple sizes, styles, colors and patterns)

    23. A four-pack of soft, breathable and reusable cooling towels that come with their own little carrier pouches and carabiner clips, making them super easy to attach to a sports bag, fanny pack, or backpack. Simply sling the towel around your neck and enjoy an instant chill.

    The blue/grey/green/pink cooling towels

    Promising review: "We took these down to Florida and I honestly credit them for keeping me from heat stroke. We wet them several times a day after they dried out, wrapped them around our necks and let them do their job. They don’t have to be drippy wet to work. Just damp. We filled the bags (that they came with, with carabiners) with water and sealed them up. Pulled them out when we needed them." —David

    Price: $14.99+ (available in 10 color combinations)

    24. A box of seven wooden fitness dice offering 45,000 different unique workout possibilities and a detailed instructional booklet, creating a fun, easy way to refresh your normal routine. No equipment necessary.

    The white fitness dice

    Promising review: "Over the years, I have spent thousands on bulky home exercise equipment. All of these equipment went through a period of frequent use, but then began to collect dust. Exercise equipment just gets boring and only works a small set of muscles. The fitness dice, on the other hand, only requires your body weight and some open floor space. They will allow you to build muscle on your entire body and will give you a different routine every time. It's a complete workout that you can do anywhere." —Jeffery

    Price: $17.61 (available in two colors and styles)

    25. A Gold Bond friction defense stick that works beautifully against the dreaded inner-thigh chafing, especially if you're working up a sweat in the heat and humidity. This little guy is a godsend for every workout.,

    Promising review: "I bought this in April and it is now June. I've come home from a fast-paced 15-minute walk in 84-degree heat and NOW I can finally write this review. This stuff is amazing. I carry it with me so I can reapply as needed (maybe once or twice over the course of a day) and I can finally wear shorts and dresses and skirts without layering dang bike shorts underneath. I am beyond pleased." —Cecilia

    Price: $5.23+ (available in three pack sizes)

    26. A magnetic rowing machine to really revolutionize your at-home workout. It's got Bluetooth connectivity, a phone and tablet holder, and a special app that you can sync to your device while building your customizable routine., Amazon

    Promising review: "This machine exceeded my expectations. It rivals the ones that I use in the gym. I already row about 40 minutes per week so having this machine will enable me to do more. Rowing is one of the best cardio workouts for seniors. It is very user-friendly and, since it can fold, I was able to put it in a small bedroom. It’s quiet, multifunctional and useful for my husband as well as myself. I would definitely recommend it." —Bill

    Price: $279.00+ (available in two styles)

    27. A large weighted sports fitness hoop featuring a stellar wavy rainbow design to stimulate your core and tone your whole body. It's like the one you played with at a kid, only specially designed to help get you in shape.


    Promising review: "I've had it for about four years now and it's still in good condition. I find it an easy exercise to do when I first get out of bed. It helps wake me up. I like to switch back and forth between it and a jump rope. Just 15 minutes of that can make me feel great throughout the day. It's definitely a great option to have for exercise. I have also used it to gently bring down my heart rate after jogging on my treadmill." —Berenice

    Price: $38.10
