Did you know that research proves that people with home exercise equipment are 73% more likely to start exercising than those without it? If you are looking for the best fitness products to add to your home gym (or just to stick under the coach and pull out for a quick workout during the kids’ afternoon nap time), check out these top 25 products for keeping fit at home.
A couple years ago I heard fitness coach Karen Sue Murdy speak and was surprised when she stressed the importance of home exercise equipment. To be honest, working out at home has never worked well for me. I put off my workouts in favor of other more fun activities (Like laundry. Yes I will actually do the laundry before I do my workouts – this makes no sense!). Suddenly it’s 3:15 and then kids are home from school and I’ve done no exercise for the day, then it’s dinner and bedtime and I’m crashing into bed myself.
Yet home exercise equipment is an important part of the fit person’s arsenal.
Karen Sue shared with us that home exercise equipment provides alternatives which is important to long-term success. Your friend cancels your walking date. It snows. Your car is in the shop. You can’t get a babysitter. A workout back-up plan is necessary in order to have a No Excuses focus on fitness for a lifetime. Home equipment will get you there.
Check out these 25 products for keeping fit at home. Not included in this list is bigger equipment such as treadmills. These are smaller items you can purchase and tuck into a corner. Many can be used in conjunction with fitness videos, or use them solo.
One of the simplest changes I’ve made is switching my desk chair for a stability ball so I’m getting a continual abdominal and leg workout just from sitting at my desk. This takes some adjustment so go easy the first few days, but once your body adjusts a bit, it’s a great way to stay strong.
