Home Workout Essentials

Resistance Bands

My Recommendation: Prosource Fit Tube Resistance Bands Set with Attached Handles, Door Anchor, Carrying Case and Exercise Guide

Designed to target all of your muscles through a full range of motion for increased strength and toning, without any machines or special equipment. Comes in a carrying case with a convenient door anchor so you can fit in a workout wherever you go. Includes an exercise guide with instruction, strengthening tips, and workout ideas. Resistance bands are extremely versatile, great for rehabilitation, toning and strengthening muscles, Pilates exercises, P90X, outdoor workouts, and travel.


My Recommendation: Women’s Beginner Kettlebell Package

The Women’s Beginner Kettlebell Package is the best way to get started with kettlebell training. Rather than choosing a single weight, this package gives you the option to choose what’s best for your beginner training (either 4kg, 8kg, or 12kg) AND progress when necessary. It also allows you to switch to the appropriate kettlebell weight based on the exercise you’re performing. If you lift weights and have been taught by a kettlebell professional, we usually recommend starting with 8kg (18lbs).

Jump Rope

My Recommendation: Tone It Up Cardio Jump Rope

Boost your metabolism and get your heart rate up anywhere with this portable jump rope! Rope is 9 feet in length and adjustable to suit your height and preferences.

Medicine Ball

Me Recommendation: Titan Fitness Adjustable 5 Medicine Ball Steel Storage Tree Strength Training

The Titan Fitness medicine ball tree for assorted sizes is a great way to organize your medicine balls in a compact upright way. The convenient 12″ x 12″ size is a perfect space-saving addition to any gym or other workout space with a need to store medicine balls. The adjustable design makes stacking them as easy as sliding them onto the appropriate level for the size ball, as the top fastener can widen the storage bars from 5 1/2″ to 6 5/8″ at the top while staying at 7″ on the bottom. Place larger balls on the bottom and smaller ones on the top. Some assembly required.

Set of Dumbbells

My Recommendation: Tone Fitness Neoprene Dumbbell Set with Rack, 32 Pounds of Weights

Convenient dumbbell storage rack plus 3 pairs of neon colored dumbbells – 3 pound, 5 pound, and 8 pound; 3 pound weights are magenta, 5 pound weights are lime green, and 8 pound weights are orange. The durable, neoprene material is great for indoor and outdoor workouts; Use dumbbells for a full body workout or to target individual muscle groups. The set is compact and perfect for travel; Don’t let your workouts stop at home; Dumbbells are an essential addition to any strength training routine.


My Recommendation: 12 Pieces Self Adhesive Acrylic Mirror Sheets, Flexible Non Glass Mirror Tiles Mirror Stickers for Home Wall Decor, 6″ x 6″ and 6″ x 9″

This is such a cool alternative to buying a heavy and bulky mirror. Simply peel off the transparent film on the front “mirror” side and you will get a shiny non-glass decorative mirror, please note it’s not real mirror. It’s ultra thin and flexible and is made of acrylic material, so it can be bent freely. It’s not easy to break and is safer than regular glass mirror.

Gym Mat

My Recommendation: BalanceFrom Puzzle Exercise Mat with EVA Foam Interlocking Tiles for Exercise, MMA, Gymnastics and Home Gym Protective Flooring

With double sided high Density EVA foam non-slip surfaces, this 3/4” thick premium mat comfortably cushions your spine, hips, knees and elbows on hard floors. It has exceptional resilience that allow you to keep your balance during any workout. It’s moisture resistant technology makes the mat to be easily washed with soap and water.
