These tools help you get the most out of a workout no matter if you're trying to lose weight, build muscle, or recover from a previous injury. Ready to begin your journey to wellness? Start with these exercise essentials.
Pilates & yoga essentials
New to exercise and fitness? Pilates and yoga are gentle workouts that can help you improve body awareness and increase your flexibility. To get started, all you really need is a mat and a DVD that takes you through the different poses. Yoga socks and a yoga towel can come in handy to prevent slipping if you work up a sweat or participate in hot yoga classes. Yoga blocks, balls, and straps help you adjust the workout based on your fitness level. They also help improve your posture during the workout to prevent injury.
Cardio equipment for a home gym
Hate driving across town to get to the gym? Setting up your own home gym allows you to get your cardio workout in without having to leave the house. Get your heart rate up and your blood pumping with a treadmill. Adjust the pace and incline to tailor your workout to your fitness level. Ease into fitness with a brisk walk, and then graduate to jogging and running as your athleticism improves. Switch up your workout and exercise different muscle groups with an exercise bike or rower. An elliptical machine gets you to break a sweat and burn fat with low-impact cardio exercise that's easy on the joints, making it a popular option for people with mobility issues and those who are recovering from injuries.
Gear for strength training & weight lifting
Building muscle isn't just for weightlifters. Weight lifting and strength training are just as important as burning fat when it comes to fitness. A home gym or weight bench offers flexibility in your strength training workouts. From bench presses to leg presses and everything in between, you can work out all of the major muscle groups in your body. Simply adding a few light hand weights to your exercise routine can take your workout to the next level, too. Not ready to hit the weights? Resistance bands, jump ropes, and exercise balls are all strength training accessories you can use for bodyweight exercises.
Accessories that engage your core & abs
Having ripped abs is about more than just looking good in a bathing suit. A strong core is essential for your posture and makes other activities and exercises easier. Weak core muscles can lead to fatigue, injuries, and reduced endurance. Ab and core trainers help you perform exercises that target those muscles to make them stronger. Ab stimulators and belts train your abs passively so you can strengthen abdominal muscles without having to do a full workout.
Train your waist
Your waist can be one of those difficult places to lose weight from. Waist trainers are compression garments that secure around your midsection. Wearing one during a workout or at other times throughout the day may help slim your waistline, help you achieve better posture, and help you get the figure you're working for. While some people use waist trainers on their own, you may find you get better results pairing it with an exercise and diet regimen.
Workout recovery essentials
It's a good idea to take the proper precautions to prevent injuries during your workout. However, sometimes your muscles might be extra sore or you may sustain a minor injury while exercising. Massage tables, resistance bands, and inversion tables help stretch or relax your muscles to reduce pain. Use a blender bottle to mix up your after-workout protein shake to get the nutrition you need to recover and build muscle. Braces, wraps, and sports tape provide extra support for injuries to prevent further damage, reduce pain, and keep you going while your body heals itself.
