No home gym? No problem! All you really need for a successful at-home workout are a few key pieces of equipment that won’t take up much space at all! While I love working out at a gym, that is not always possible being a single mom. When the weather finally warms up, I look forward to resuming my outdoor stroller fitness workouts with my kids in tow, but for now, I have been forced to get creative at home.
Here are my top recommendations for at-home workout equipment that doesn’t take up much space and will be great for you to use with a variety of workouts:
Bands are portable, versatile, low-impact for joints and used for strength training and stretching. They will help with developing stability and increasing your strength! You can use them for a multitude of exercises.
Instead of buying dumbbells, buy just one kettlebell that you can use for a variety of full body workouts. Check out my Full Body Kettlebell workout here.
I love having a yoga mat for workouts at home when I need a solid surface and I don’t want to get sweat all over my floor or carpet. Yoga mats are portable and I also like to take them outside with me for outdoor workouts. Or, if you go to a gym, it’s a lot more sanitary to take your own mat for stretching or pilates/yoga workouts.
An exercise ball is great for stimulating the muscles in your core. It helps with posture, balance, stability and strengthening a lot of smaller muscles. There are so many different exercises you can perform while using the ball. Not just core!
