Home Gym: 5 Equipment You Can Invest In
Make working out at home fun with these easy-to-use (and purchase!) gear
With the Enhanced Community Quarantine set in place this week and a long, dreaded wait until we can finally head to our neighborhood 24/7 gyms, working out at home seems like the most feasible (and safest!) option for our present circumstances. It’s not all bad since we have control of our time, and there’s less temptation to laze around since we can just take out our exercise mats and follow through any time of the day—not to mention there's no gym membership necessary!
Let your living room be your personal sanctuary as you strive to fulfill your fitness goals this 2021! If you’re not too keen on equipment-free workouts, here are some equipment you can purchase online for your holistic well-being (see: mental health).
A sturdy and slip-free exercise mat is the most basic of equipment; it definitely makes home workouts feasible. With the right amount of support and cushioning, it makes your 10 to 45 minutes worth of exercise all the more enjoyable, many thanks, too, to trendy YouTube instructors like Maddie Lymburner of Madfit and Heather Robertson. You can have fun with all these vivid colors as well; just mix and match to your heart’s desires!
