Fitness Essentials For Your Home Gym!

Weighted Balls

I saw a couple of videos on youtube of someone using them for a workout and I was intrigued so I ordered the yellow, red, and blue ones and use to do core workouts and shoulder exercises.

They truly are easy to grip and the colors are bright and beautiful and to use for balance training and stabilization exercises.

Floor Mat

The thing I love about this mat, is that it’s thick. It’s not like a thin yoga mat, it’s sturdy and has great back support.

It has a handle on it and easy to store.

Resistance Bands

The resistance bands provide a good workout for your legs, arms, back, ankles, hips or shoulders.

I like to work my hips and these bands do the job.

I perform crab and monster walks across the floor with the bands around my ankles and they are nice and thick so they don’t slide up your leg 1/2 way through the workout.

They come in bright colors and all are different in resistance.

Easy to pack in your suitcase for vacations.

Resistance Tubes

I use these bands to work my arms mostly, but they are great for a full body workout and exercises like curls, shoulder presses, and squats.

They come in pretty colors and are all different in resistance.

Also, easy to pack in your suitcase for vacations.

Foam Roller

The foam roller worked really well to help relieve sciatica.

It helps to relieve Muscle Tension and increase Muscle Reflexology.

Balance Pad

This pad is gentle on the joints and can be used to increase the difficulty of common exercises like, lunges, push-ups, squats, sit-ups, and yoga poses.

I use it for IT band stretches and balance training!

Rocker Balance Board

This works good if you are trying to strengthen the core or if you need to work on balance training.

It’s great for stretching your calf and lower leg muscles!

Bosu Trainer

I used the Bosu Trainer for squats, to strengthen my core, and for balance training.

It takes some time to get used to, so it’s good if you have something to hold onto when getting off and on.

Medicine Ball

The medicine ball workouts include lunges squats, slams, single-leg V-ups, kneel to push ups and other strength training.

I have three different ones with different weights.

I use the medicine ball for twists, lunges and squats.

In addition to free weights and extras, we truly love the functional trainer and use it several times a week. Check out the video below!
