Pull Up To The Workout Partyvia Amazon

One of the easiest options is to turn your door frame into a pull-up station with this pull-up bar. This fitness bar is perfect for a variety of exercises, including pull-ups, chin-ups, dips, sit-ups, crunches, and more. You can install it without hardware or mount it with screws for added stability.
Roll Out Sore Musclesvia Amazon
This Amazon find is more about "after your workout" than in the midst of it. This foam roller functions as a deep-tissue massager and myofascial trigger point release tool. Made of lightweight but rugged material, this roller is effective at penetrating the soft tissue layer of tired muscles but is soft enough to use on those days when you're more "oww" than "wow."
This trampoline would really perk up my exercise routine!via AmazonLet's face it: I don't feel as bouncy as I did 10 years ago. So I could really use the extra pep I'd get from this springy new friend. It's just the right size to use in the house, and the safety handle can be adjusted to four different heights, so it should fit me just fine. I've gotta say, it looks a lot more fun than my elliptical.
Here Comes The High Stepper
Aerobic steppers have been around for a long time and for good reason. This stepper improves coordination and cardiovascular fitness with three settings, for more strenuous exercise, muscle building, and toning. Supporting up to 550 pounds, this step is lightweight, easy to carry, and convenient to store. All that's missing is your favorite internet workout routine so get to steppin'!
This Pilates Accessory Has A Nice Ring To Itvia Amazon
Are you a Pilates pro? Whether you are or aren't, this Pilates ring will tone stubborn areas of the body like the inner and outer thighs, upper arms, hips, butt, and neck. The description calls it "like a thigh master, but better." (Watch out, Suzanne Somers!) This must-have Pilates accessory is lightweight and portable and includes a convenient carrying pouch that is available in pink, purple, blue, or yellow.
A Yoga Mat With Built-In Alignment Guidesvia Amazon
Tree pose, downward dog, sun salutations ... they're all be more enjoyable with this eco-friendly, non-slip yoga mat. My favorite feature of this quarter-inch-thick mat is its built-in alignment system that helps you adjust your hands and feet to the proper positions. Besides that, it's available in six really pretty colors (loving that purple!) and is both longer and wider than traditional yoga mats.
Achieve Perfect Crunches Anywhere
I love crunches ... those little crispy bits coated in milk chocolate ... wait, that's a Crunch bar. Never mind. But, enough Crunch bars will lead you to need one of these crunch assistants. You can use it literally anywhere to increase your ab game. When you're finished with crunches, flip it over to perform push-ups and dips.

Who needs a whole rack of dumbbells when you can grab this single dumbbell that does the job of five? This adjustable dumbbell comes with removable bars that allow you to choose your desired weight. The result? One set of dumbbells will carry you through many exercises and numerous sets without needing to buy — or store — more.
Use this Bicycle Light to stay safe during your ridevia Amazon
If you're a cyclist you know how important it is to have a light that shows motorists and pedestrians where you are. Many of my lights have died, so having a rechargeable light would make bicycle safety a cinch. Now you can get your cycle on at any time of day or night.
This Water Bottle Will Help Keep You On Track For Your Water Intake Goalsvia Amazon
There's a very good chance that you don't drink enough water. And this is not me shaming you. Because I don't either.

So it's really a win/win, especially if you're working out in the heat.

Trampolines Aren't Just For The Kiddosvia Amazon
This may be the most fun workout you've ever tried. Grab a mini trampoline on Amazon for right around $40 and you'll enjoy three guided workouts with your purchase and an LCD monitor that tracks your workout metrics. One reviewer said it was "very secure" with a "good bounce." Don't think a trampoline can get your heart pumping? Send your kids outside on their own for 20 minutes and see what happens.
Tone Your Legs These Ankle Weightsvia Amazon
I've seen ankle weights all over my Instagram feed for quite some time now. People wear them while doing booty workouts or going on long walks. I instantly became intrigued, but every pair that people were recommending were $50+. As someone fairly new to the workout world, I was not about to throw that money down on something so small. That's when I came across these ankle weights on Amazon. While 1.5 lbs may not sound like a lot, when you're walking or doing donkey kicks, they really kick your ass. Your thighs and butt will thank you later.
These Exercise Dice Help You Switch Things Up When You're Feeling Stuckvia Amazon
One of the hardest parts of working out is figuring out what to do. There are so many workouts, and if you don't have the motivation or are just starting, it can be tricky to figure out what to do. When I started doing backyard exercises, I quickly ran out of ideas or gave up after 5-minutes because I had nothing guiding me. These exercise dice make that decision-making so much easier. Plus, they come with a mesh bag for easy outdoor sweat sessions.
Don't Waist Time Looking For Another Running Beltvia Amazon
I don't run, OK? And, if you ever see me running, you should probably join me because something bad is happening. I do enjoy going for walks, however.

You Can Use This Kettlebell For So Many Different Workoutsvia Amazon
Maybe it's just me, but I would much rather lift weights and work out outside than in a gym. There's no one to judge you and you get to soak up a little sunshine. Kettlebells are such a classic piece of workout equipment and a must-have for every at-home gym.

Having A High-Quality Yoga Mat Like This One Is The Key To A Good Yoga Seshvia Amazon
Having a good yoga mat can make or break a yoga sesh. If you're on a slippery surface or the grass, it's easy for a mat to move around, which makes focusing pretty difficult. This yoga mat is not only affordable, but it also has double-sided non-slip surfaces and is anti-tear, and it absorbs moisture, so you don't have to worry about slipping on your sweat. If you've ever done yoga, you know how big of a deal this is.

Track Your Outdoor Workouts With This Smartwatchvia Amazon
Ever since I got a smartwatch from a certain very well-known brand, I can't exercise without it. I love being able to track my movements, my calories burned, etc. However, I'm a firm believer that you don't have to spend hundreds to enjoy a fitness tracker. This smartwatch, in particular, looks exactly like the one I own for a quarter of the price, all while still receiving texts, calls, emails and allowing you to track your sleep and breathing.

Check out this reviewer picture that shows how easy it is to transform any space into a workout zone.

Head to your local park and get the tush you've always dreamed of.

Wear it on your runs or walks or during your outdoor weight lifting session to up the calorie burn.
This Waist Trainer Will Make You Really Work Up A Sweatvia Amazon
We've all seen the Kardashians swear up and down about their waist trainers. I won't even lie and say that I haven't contemplated getting one multiple times. If you're ready to get one for yourself (and I can't blame you), this waist trainer is a great affordable option. Wear it when weight training, running or doing other outside workouts for a sweat unlike you've ever experienced. With long-term use, you'll notice you start shredding some serious pounds.

Stay Hands-Free During Your Runs With This Fanny Packvia Amazon
I'm not, and never will be, a huge runner, but that doesn't mean that I won't try now and then. If there's one thing that makes or breaks a run, it's a good playlist. Unfortunately, this means lugging around my phone. This fanny pack helps hold your phone, keys, and more while you exercise so you can keep your hands free.
