As pure as our intentions may be, there are some (read: plenty!) of days that we just don’t feel like hitting the gym. Maybe it’s frigid or raining outside, and you’re not feeling very inspired to leave your cozy home, or you simply prefer not to exercise in public. Or perhaps it’s the cost of a gym membership that you’re balking at — after all, they don’t always come cheap! Luckily, We’ve done the legwork to round up all of the best home workout accessories that you’ll need to stay fit, toned, and healthy from the comfort of your very own home when you can’t — or simply don’t want to — hit the gym. After all, not wanting to head outdoors shouldn’t become an excuse for slacking on your fitness resolutions. There are plenty of ways you can get a quick workout in at home — if you have the right tools available! 

What accessories do I need to workout? 

Not everyone has the same fitness needs. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to fitness accessories, and there are also a lot of exercise gimmicks out there. So, how do you know what to look for when choosing the best gear for you? That all depends on what you’re trying to accomplish. Exercise enthusiasts seeking to lose weight or build muscle mass may require a completely different set of accessories than those looking to strengthen joints after an injury, increase strength, stamina, and energy levels, or simply get a much-needed endorphin-boost. 

We’ve found a selection that includes something for everyone. 

The Best Workout Accessories 

You don’t need a gym membership or a personal trainer to reach your fitness goals. From ankle weights that will offer up resistance as you move about (from $11.99, Amazon) to balls you can use to enhance your balance and flexibility ($41.52, Amazon), we’ve got you covered. Keep scrolling to take a look through Woman’s World’s list of picks for the best home fitness accessories around.
