Times are tough, as Covid-19 is proving it needs to be taken more seriously and large parts of the population are forced to compromise on their daily routine while they work from home and self-isolate. Part of the daily challenge includes staying active and healthy while in the confines of one’s own home.

For those that are well-versed in the world of fitness and home workouts, staying fit at home might not pose the greatest challenge. But for those that relied on the weight room or treadmill at the gym, the in-person HIIT course, or even their bike and local park to sweat it out and — most importantly — stay sane, being stuck at home can be more than trying.

Working out at home doesn’t have to be difficult, nor does it have to be expensive. While technically you only need some old sports clothes, a bit of space, and maybe the odd YouTube home workout video, there is also cost-effective gear that will help you elevate your workout from sweaty, wobbly mess to precise, efficient workout.

Shop the best home workout gear below.

Apparel and footwear

Sure, you can work out in your old T-shirts and sweatpants. But just as everyone recommends changing into proper clothes when working from home to put some distance between chilling and productivity, we recommend you get some proper sports apparel to at least give the impression that you’re taking this workout seriously.

These don’t have to be expensive, as you can get by with the classic short-sleeve T-shirt and shorts combination. The long-sleeve T-shirt included in our selection below probably isn’t necessary as temperatures rise in the Northern hemisphere, but we like the way it looks and it’ll definitely help you work up a sweat. We’ve also added some footwear options, should you want to take things outdoors.

Gear

Carefully selected gear is the easiest way to elevate your home workout and our selection below doesn’t exceed $25, which is a minuscule investment when we’re talking about your health and well-being. The push-up grip and resistance band are multi-faceted pieces of equipment that you can use for many different kinds of exercises and having them at home will help you add different types of workouts to your routine. If you’re missing the outdoors, the football might be for you — just make sure you’re respectful of your neighbors.

Accessories

Like the gear outlined above, accessories can add another dimension to your workout, be it functional like the resistance band, or — in the case of the accessories below — stylish. The saying “fake it till you make it” very much applies to working out as well. You may not work out the hardest at home but you’ll be damned if you don’t look the part in gloves, a cap, and with a water bottle even though your faucet is ten feet away.
