Customer’s Reviews 
“I love these. Ive been using these to work out my glutes. I feel the burn much more faster! They tend to slip a bit when you wear shorts. But its fine. It hasn’t bothered my workouts at all. Great bands for great price” Claudia 

“As a Physical Therapist I give worksheets of exercises to perform to help patients recover. I always suggest they I pick up a set of bands like these for resistance movements. These came in a convenient carrying bag that I store them in when not in use. The soft yet grippy material is easy to use and has made use in the office a breeze! I’m always looking for new PT products to try out and this one is a winner!” Jeff

2. Yoga Mat

A high-quality yoga mat with the perfect amount of cushion to keep you comfortable but not so comfortable you want to fall asleep during your practice.

Customer’s Reviews
“This exercise mat is actually pretty fantastic given its inexpensive price. I purchased this mat to use at an outdoor “boot camp” exercise group I just joined. The padding is cushy and thick enough to protect your back, knees, and other weight bearing body parts utilized when exercising.

“I liked the nylon strap that came with the mat as well. It’s nice to be able to roll the mat up, put the strap on, and toss it over my back. It keeps the mat from unrolling and getting destroyed in the back of my car. That and it also keeps me from looking ridiculous when trying to carry a mat that won’t stay rolled up!” Valerie

“My first yoga mat and I love it! I’m not a tiny person and yet it’s firm enough to cushion, but soft enough to be comfy. I use it ripple side up and it isn’t slippery at all….and, believe me, I’m sweatin’! I bought the purple version and it was very true to color in the photo. It had small marks where the straps were fastened too tight, but nothing terribly noticeable, and they do puff back out after some use. It’s definitely better quality than I expected for the price. Namaste with this mat !!!” Brooklyn

Dumbbell is one of the most versatile equipment you can have in your home gym. It can be use for strength training, body building, functional movement, or high intensity exercise. However the downside of conventional dumbbell is that it can be expensive and takes up a lot of space. With Bowflex SelectTech you can change weight of the dumbbell from 5 lbs to 52.5 lbs with a twist of a dial. This adjustable dumbbell replaces 15 pairs of conventional dumbbells.

Customer’s Reviews
“I love these Bowflex dumbbells because they are very easy to adjust and have a very comfortable grip. (Much easier to adjust than my old Gold’s Gym dumbbells.) My partner likes that they go down to 5 and 7.5 lbs and they go up to 50 and 52.5 lbs. The weight holders are plastic but holding up well after 6 months of use. There is no stand, so I’ve been using my old Gold’s Gym stand to make them easier to pick up from a standing position.” Nathan

“Very convenient set of dumbbells here, they can be a little difficult to adjust at first but once you use the adjustments a bit they are a breeze. Great for doing drop sets because you can switch weight so quickly. “Note that it says you cant use them for pushups because you will warp the weights which is inconvenient because push up rows are an incredible dumbbell workout.” Jermane

Jump rope is one of the best full body exercise you can do any where. This is the number one best-selling jump rope on Amazon, and for good reason. Read the reviews below.

Customer’s Reviews

“After my jump rope went bust with the ball bearings no longer spinning fast, I took a chance and ordered one from Amazon. This has got to be the best jump rope I’ve ever used. It’s fast, inexpensive and easily adjustable. If you’re tall like myself at 6’4, this rope in my opinion is pretty much set for that height. I would definitely recommend this jump rope.” Jesus Aguilar

“I bought this for myself to practice who Double Unders with my son who does Crossfit with. This jump rope seems to be of great quality and has worked well so far in practicing. It seems sturdy and doesn’t tangle up easily. Love the contrast in colors and keeps ours separate.” Traci C

Exercise mat are a necessity when you are working out with weights in your home to protect your beautiful floors from getting damage. Reviewers love these mats for their home gyms.

Customer’s Reviews
“Using these for our garage for my new workout space to pad my cardio equipment and give me a space to stretch/lift. I love the blue color! My husband put these down and they were easy to use and put together. Perfect thickness to protect the equipment and give me some cushion for workouts!” Ginger Moeller

“We use to protect the floor from our exercise equipment – elliptical and bike. Have used for years and floor underneath is still in great condition. We bought another pack to create a space for floor exercises and it works great. Recommend making sure there is a wall or other solid thing to place the mats up against to reduce separation if there will be fast movements on it (jumping jacks, mountain climbers, etc). I have 2 rows by 3 mats between the equipment and it works great.” J. Brown

For those with limited space or limited budget, resistance bands are one of the best way of building strength and muscle. This one is the most recommended by reviewers.

Customer’s Reviews
“I am very pleased with these resistance bands. With a little creativity, you can hit all your muscle groups. You can perform pretty much any lift with these bands that you can with a dumbbell set for a fraction of the price. The resistance is easy to adjust, by attaching any combination of the bands together. Each band is labeled with its resistance weight, so they are easy to figure out. If you connect them all together, you will end up with some pretty decent resistance. I plan to order another set, so I will have even more options for training. I highly recommend these, for anyone looking for an affordable yet effective training option.” Scott Phipps

“This system has made me want to exercise again! The workouts are fun…they’re planned out for you (must download). The bands are very durable and easy to use. Comes with nice padded handles & ankle straps for more lower body excercises.” donna m.

Customer’s Reviews
“If you need an exercise ball this might be the ball for you. It’s easy to inflate with the given pump. Good sturdy material. Takes a good amount of weight. Ball has a good bounce to it, very good to do situps and stretches on. Perfect for home workouts. I would recommend a non slip flooring to keep the ball sturdy. With so many choices out there I’m very happy with my purchase.” Joon yi

“This was exactly what I was looking for. I followed the size chart by height and it’s the perfect size to accommodate my needs! Super easy to blow up and it comes with an exercise guide which is very helpful to have!” Alyson A.

Customer’s Reviews
“I committed to do 80 Day Obsession by Beachbody buy my order was delayed three weeks. You need these immediately, so I ordered them and prayed they didn’t suck. They didn’t suck. They’re actually better than the BB ones, IMO. They slide perfectly in my carpet and hardwood floors (I workout in my living room or family room.) Your feet (in shoes) don’t slide off the disks. I am pleased and would buy again.” Amber L

“I would hands down buy these again! They work great on both carpet (even my longer-ish carpet) and my hard wood floors. They’re exactly as described, the perfect size, and absolutely perfect for the 80 day obsession. Nothing negative to say (except that my abs are killing me!)” Kara

Kettlebell is one of the most versatile gym equipment you can have in your home. It can be use to exercise all major muscle groups, including arms,chest, back, abs, and legs. The benefits of kettlebell exercises range from building muscle, enhancing core strength, and burning calories. This Cap Barbell Enamel Coated Cast Iron Kettlebell is one of the best value kettlebell you can get.

Customer’s Reviews
“I am totally stoked that I bought these. Not only are they very inexpensive compared to virtually every other kettlebell, they look great and are very comfortable in my hands. I bought two 45lb kettlebells, they came in two separate boxes and arrived at the same time. To the people that took picture of chipped kettlebells, if they arrived damaged out of the box, it is absolutely fault of whoever delivered it. To the people that said they were damaged while using them…I suggest they don’t smash their kettlebells like a barbarian into concrete. These are extremely sturdy and durable, if you are using them PROPERLY, the should last a lifetime. If you drop them on concrete or smash them together while using two, it’s your fault, not the manufacturers fault. Don’t be a barbarian.” Ray

10. Indoor Rower

Courtesy of Amazon

 

Rowing is the one of the best low impact exercise you can do. It engages all major muscle groups; work legs, core and arms with a smooth, high calorie-burning motion. Concept 2 rower is one of the most well known indoor rower, you see it in all the gyms and CrossFit boxes.

Customer’s Reviews
“It IS nice to know we can still do it BETTER than China every once in a while! This rowing machine could not have been easier to assemble (all of 10 minutes, if that much) ……and VERY ROBUSTLY made! I’ve been a licensed mechanical and civil engineer (now retired) and I know good build quality AND for that matter, “EXCELLENT” design quality as well. Just get on and row! Well,…spend a half hour or so on you tube to look at basic beginner’s rowing technique(they all feature Concept 2’s , BTW)— and your off and away! I used to use and still have a gym quality tread mill, but arthritis is really setting in bad in recent years and with all this crazy rain and unusually cold weather in May, it just is too much pounding on the knees and hips so, I do short 5 minute semi-sprints or slow ones, if that’s what I feel like, to build up my cardio rate and then hop off and hit the weight bench. I go back to the rower for another 5 or 10 minutes (I put it at resistance level 3 and try to stay around 25-30 rows per minute) and all is well. After those ,I do some curls for the biceps and then overhead triceps presses. I’m 67 this month and am rapidly starting to feel more energy, stamina, and strength. Mind you,…I don’t go overboard. I’m just trying to strengthen the muscles that keep my knees, hips and neck in place and the Concept 2 rower is superb for all around cardio w/o too much vertical stress on the knees, hips, and neck! I have degenerative disc disease caused by osteoarthritis ( which is the gradual eroding away of the cartilage in between my neck discs, knee and hip joints.) My mother had the rheumatoid variety real bad, so its probably genetic and in my early retirement, I just did not keep up to snuff w/ physical exercise and gained about 40 extra pounds over the last 15 years. The good life CAN kill ya but; my new mantra is,… all things in moderation! Including the exercise (usually 3 to 4 times a week, though the rower makes it so easy to jump on for some quick cardio any time!

I’ve had really expensive pieces of exercise equipment that wound up being clothes hangers and dust collectors but not so with this sleek, well built machine! Mind you, don’t buy into that nonsense of needing a seat pad for extra comfort or anything like that. The concept 2 seat is just fine even on this tired, old, arthritic, boney, butt! Surprisingly, I do find that, after a session with the machine, I feel stronger in ALL the problem joints! I highly recommend this unit. 100 percent USA made and excellent customer service with a 10 year guarantee! Can’t beat that for just under a grand! It really is a no brainer with Prime. Use it (save the packing of course , which is not a complex deal) for a few weeks and if its NOT for you,…send it back for free! BTW….contrary to the website (or Amazon’s) description, you only need a 9 foot by 40 inch footprint (IF SPACE IS TIGHT!) Please also note that I’m on the short side at 5′ 7″ tall and 23″ wide at the shoulders and 225 lbs. Leave it set up and don’t take it apart every time you finish using it because, although it is fairly easy to “click” assemble from 2 pieces (rail and actual pull chain to activate wind resistance mechanism),… you’ll find you won’t use it as often (or at all) if you have to take the minute or so to “snap it together!” Audiophile MB (Marco B.-NYC)

Work on getting your first pull-up or increasing your max pull-up with this Iron Age Pull-up Bar. Its ergonomic angled end help protect wrist, ideal for latissimus.

Customer’s Reviews
“The boys in the house wanted to workout but we didn’t have enough space for workout equipment. At first I wasn’t sure about this pull up bar since I did t want to mess with the door frame but that didn’t happen. First it was super easy to install my husband try it (180 lb) and he was impressed on how sturdy it was. We took it out and no harm to the door frame. And then you can just fold in the middle bars and ready for an easy storage. Doesn’t take room in the closet and when ready to use again same process and ready in just a few minutes. Excellent product very well made. What I also like about the product is that you can also do some workout laying it down on the floor, love the variety of workouts you can do with it and is safe.” Ylopez

“Husband bought this but I was skeptical about the damages to our new house but I was glad to see that it had FOAM SURFACE door pads to prevent damage to your door frame. It was easy to assemble and the padding makes pull up a little more comfortable. There is a foldable option too that I found out after reading one of the reviews which is a great plus. Well made product.” Tisha

For those of you who wants six packs abs, ab wheel is one of the best exercise equipment to work on your abs here  are what the reviews says:

Customer’s Reviews
“My core is fairly weak so even after some simple use of this my abs were sore for the next few days. Im pretty excited about incorporating this regularly into my workouts.

Easiest thing I’ve ever assembled and it came with a few bonus items (didnt pay much attention to what I was buying but an added bonus none the less). Works as you would expect, nothing missing or anything I would change or add to it. And the seller is phenomenal!” Mr. Nate

“The Fitnessery Ab Roller is perfect for ab workouts and working towards gaining a stronger core in general. I was surprised with the ease of use and simple design for putting it together. The best part for me was the knee pad that came with it. Without the knee pad, using the ab roller is difficult as I have wood floors at my house. Overall, I am extremely happy with my purchase and highly recommend this product.” Drake Bowers
