While some of us are still able to exercise outside safely—meaning we’re able to follow social distancing rules on our walks, runs, or bike rides—many live in areas where crowds make outdoor cardio a no-go. On the other hand, some people can go outside safely, but those kinds of activities simply aren’t their jam.
That means for many people, their living rooms (or bedrooms, basements, or tiny square of free space in their apartments) have become their temporary workout spots. And if that describes your situation, chances are pretty good that you don’t have a ton of room to play around with. So when you’re choosing at home workout equipment, you want to make sure you’re purchasing the best home exercise equipment for you.
We get it: Stocking a “gym” can be daunting. So we tapped trainers from across the country to share their picks for the best workout equipment for home use. From free weights to massagers, these at home workout equipment picks will help you get set up. (Just a note that everything on this list is in stock at the time of publication, but as you probably know, inventory is constantly changing, and home fitness equipment is among the kinds of products that tend to sell out fast.)
Whether you’ve found virtual fitness classes to tune into via Zoom, or you prefer to go at it solo, these items are sure to help you maintain a routine during quarantine, and hopefully keep some of the stress and anxiety you’ve been feeling at bay.
