Check out my full list of 37 best pieces of equipment for working out at home – all of which I've found on Amazon.

This Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat Is Recyclable and Non-Toxic

Amazon

When I'm buying yoga mats, I always try to find the brands with no PVC, Latex or other harmful products and for that reason, this one is my go-to.

On top of being eco-friendly, it's super comfortable to use for both Pilates and yoga at home because of its non-slip surface and just the right amount of cushioning. Now all you need is your at-home YouTube yoga videos set to play.

This Cork Massage Roller Is an Eco-Friendly Tension Reliever

Amazon

Traditional foam rollers that are bad for the environment are so passé. Instead, this cork roller is actually recyclable as well as being extremely effective for relieving tension and knots in the muscle.

This one is only 12 inches long, so it doesn't take up much space at home and is great to massage out knots after your at-home workout.

This Waist Trainer Belt Is the Best Support System

Amazon

If you've ever struggled with posture and tummy support while working out, then you'll love this waist trainer.

It protects your lower back and sides from injury while working out and also increases your own tummy control. So, if you're postpartum or needing to tone your abdominal muscles, this easy to wear trainer will do the trick.

These Core Sliders Make Any Surface Perfect for An Ab Workout

Amazon

One of the hardest things about working out at home is finding the right floor surface. Which is why I love these Synergee Core Sliders – because they can be used on either hardwood floors or carpet.

All you have to do is use these sliders underneath your feet to create greater balance and stability, so you can work on your abdominals without slipping and sliding down the carpet.

If space is no issue for you at home and you're wanting a piece of larger equipment, this squat assist Row-N-Ride Trainer is a must-have.

It's a highly ranked Amazon's Choice piece of equipment for toning the lower body – including the glutes, quads and hamstrings. It also works the shoulders, back and chest as you push down to squat and lift yourself back up.

These Resistance Pull Up Bands Will Supersize Your Strength Workout

Amazon

When you want to up your strength training at home and don't have heavy gym equipment, these resistance bands are the perfect alternative.

This Pilates Brick is Completely Organic and Natural

Amazon

I like to mix up both yoga and Pilates and for the latter, this is my favorite brick because it's made of all-natural plant fiber materials.

It comes in a range of different colors on Amazon and it's perfect for adjusting your postures and enhancing your at-home Pilates session, without spending a fortune.

I love this mat for home because it folds away easily and doesn't take up too much space, while also being super comfortable to protect my tailbone when doing ab workouts.

This Adjustable Pilates Bar Kit Tones and Stretches

Amazon

Reformer Pilates machines can be extremely expensive and take up a lot of space, so I tried this adjustable Pilates Bar Kit instead and it's been great.

I feel like I can get the same workout in a much smaller area at home and assembling the bar is easy enough, so I pack it away after each session. Plus, the stretch brand is made of 100% natural latex, instead of a cheaper alternative.

I Love What These Resistance Loop Bands Have Done for My Thighs

Amazon

Targeting my upper thighs in a workout has always been a struggle, until I found these loop bands.

I started using them during squats and leg lifts at home and have had great results. I bought a pack of three on Amazon and the great thing is they take up hardly any space, so I just keep them in my bedside drawer.
