Home Fitness Equipment: 7 Best and Cheapest Workout Accessories

Home Fitness Equipment

Home workouts can be effective if you keep them challenging with a few accessories. Here are the best (and cheapest) pieces of home fitness equipment you need to get results at home!

Working Out at Home

Home workouts are a great way to start exercising if you don’t feel confident enough the step into the gym. They are also a good option if you’re short on time or have to watch your kids at home. Finally, if you’re away on holiday and don’t have access to a gym, you can pack a few of these accessories to workout wherever you are.

All you need is a few accessories to enhance the intensity of your workout. All the pieces of home fitness equipment listed below can be found on Amazon for less than $50!

Home Fitness Equipment: What To Get?

1.  Bosu Ball (or Balance Trainer)

You can find more affordable alternatives to the official Bosu Ball. This Balance Trainer helps you work on your balance and stability (squats with feet on the ball) but also your endurance (try to do some bosu ball burpees…).

2. Kettlebells

Kettlebells are great to get an explosive full body workout in or to focus on a body part. If you need some inspiration, you can find a kettlebell leg and glute workout here.

3. Dumbbells

Dumbbells are your go-to accessory to add a bit of resistance to any movement to make it more challenging. I would recommend getting a few sets of dumbbells of various weights for upper and lower body exercises. For instance here are two great shoulder exercises and here’s a dumbbell only leg workout.

4. Medicine Ball

Medicine Balls are also a great way to add resistance to your squats, lunges, ab exercises… Make sure to invest in a ball that has a very good grip.

5. Step

Choose a step that is adjustable so that you can adapt the height to a variety of exercises. For some inspiration here’s a step only cardio circuit.

6. Mat

You’ll use your mat for core exercises, stretching, yoga and relaxation. A real must-have!

7. Resistance Bands

Last but not least! Depending on your goals you can get the long resistance bands that are used for stretching and some strength exercises. Or you can get the small bands that are mainly used for glute activation and exercises.

    I can’t work out anymore as I am not allowed due to my illness. However, these are truly great.

    This is timely since I have been missing a lot of gym classes. I am just so busy to leave the house with all the projects (BTW, I work from home.) So I believe that Working Out at Home seems to be a perfect option to stay fit. I would love to start with some lightweight dumbbells and perhaps a medicine ball.

    Nice article about gym and fitness products. I have some of them at home and use them on regular basis. But your information is really helpful.

    That a great deal, less than $50! I purchase myself the resistance bands (as this is the only thing you can`t find in any gym) and I can`t believe I worked out without them since now !!

    This is a very cool list! I have some of these in my house and I usually run on my treadmill at night
