    Promising review: "This is a great addition to my gym bag. On the first day of using it I was asked by several people where I got it. It helps isolate the glute muscles solely, rather than having to use a regular gym handle and grip it with my foot, or hope it stays place on my shoe. I never used the cuffs, they gross me out. I only ordered one and am fine with switching it from one leg to another, the design and Velcro makes that fairly easy – but I can see having two and may order another one. I'm recommending it to my gym on the Marine Corps base to have it with the other equipment/handles." –Marissa

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95+ (available in two sizes and six colors).

    4. A Bala ring that really does ~reinvent~ the wheel. Coming in at 10 pounds, this versatile workout ring will give you added weight to tackle your HIIT, barre, and strength training classes.

    Promising review: "Compared to competitors 2x-3x the price this thing competes perfectly well and gives you an awesome pump. I use it with a door anchor to do lat pull downs, stand on it for OPH and curls. It’s super diverse and I’m a big fan of all that can be accomplished." —Max Burnett

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

    I've always been very intimidated of the whole pre-workout, protein powder world. I enjoy fitness and working out, but was very unsure of what would work best for me and my fitness level. Gainful caught my attention, because they can take all that guess work out and recommend/create solid formulas designed just for you. I filled out the quiz and just like that, I had a ton of options to choose from. I love everything, and it's definitely made a noticeable difference in my workouts. My personal favorite are the hydration packets (they taste YUMMY)!

    Because every powder is custom, there is no set price but it starts around $1.60 per serving (30 servings per bag!). 

    7. A Stealth core trainer — a workout device with an accompanying app you can play games on. Yup, combine the one thing you love (video games) with the thing you don't love so much...working out. With this, getting your sweat on can be, dare I say, fun.

    Promising review: "I believe any money invested in health and fitness is worth it when utilized. This is a great purchase and integrates gaming with fitness. It's a fun way to build a strong core and expose the abs. No assembly is required, just a quick app download and you'll be ready to break your friends' record and at the same time sculpt your abs." —Makisan

    Get it from Amazon for $149.

    8. A freestanding punching bag for a killer workout right in your very own garage. ~Kick~ your usual routine up a notch without having to sign up for a new class or...leave your house. 

    Promising review: "This boxing equipment is much better than I expected. The overall design and quality are excellent, easy to install, and you just need to fill the base with water to keep it steady. It is nice that it came with boxing gloves but I have my own boxing gloves at home because they suit me better. I have been using this for over a week, and it doesn't affect my neighbors at all. Very good." —Lina

    Get it from Amazon for $184.99.

    9. A yoga hammock if you've been looking for a new way to build strength, improve flexibility, and stretch out your muscles. Aerial work is your answer!

    Promising review: "These are some tough workout bands. They feel much stronger than the rubber resistance bands that I’m used to. Since these are made out of cloth they feel a lot better when they are rubbing against my skin when I use them. The rubber bands that I use to use always felt a little abrasive on my skin. I use these bands mainly to work on my quads and hamstrings at the gym. They are a supplement to my workout routine. These set of bands also come with a bag and its so portable, I feel like I can carry it in my pockets if I had to." —Kevin

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $12.89+ (available in three color sets).

    12. A set of push-up handles to elevate your push-up game. Not only will these add a bit of a challenge, they'll better distribute your weight and reduce the strain and pressure on your wrists.

    Promising review: "If you work out at home and use body weight, you need the Perfect Fitness Pushup Elite stands. They allow you to vary your width, strengthen your hands and wrists, and alleviate pain, while allowing for deeper pushups. The result is a better chest and tricep pump, which translates into more strength and size. The stands give you an extra couple of inches in height while doing pushups and added comfort as they can rotate 360 degrees. The handles have a rubber padding, which is comfortable on your hands and can support up to 400 pounds. This is perfect for me since I use a weight vest when doing pushups." —D. Miyao

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $28.99.
