Our At-Home Workout Equipment Must-Haves
To have a great start for your at-home workout program, we recommend having these 4 basic items on hand (also pictured above):
At-Home Workout Equipment Starter Kit:
Resistance Band Loops: These are great for using in a variety of lower body and core exercises. We love putting them around the ankles or knees for inner and outer thigh work and to add another challenging element to core exercises. Try these by Perform Better (blue is heavy resistance, green is medium resistance)
Exercise Ball i.e. Pilates Ball, Barre Ball, or Mini Exercise Ball: These also have limitless uses! We like this one on Amazon
One pair each of Light (3-6lbs), Medium (8-12lbs) & Heavy (15-25lbs) Dumbbells: They're pretty self-explanatory, but adding weights and strength training to your exercise routine will maximize your efforts and results and take your workouts to a new level if you aren't strength training already! You can grab yours anywhere like Amazon, Target, Walmart, Academy or Dick's Sporting Goods.
Yoga Mat: A little padding and slip-resistance goes a long way in at-home workouts. We like this extra-thick mat from Yoga Accessories that comes in a variety of fun colors
