10 fitness gadgets for living room workouts – Mashable
Every body is a swimsuit body. Full stop.
Working out should make you feel strong and capable — don’t believe any of that bullshit about “swimsuit season.”
That said, if you’re looking to start a workout routine now that the weather is nicer, or have been trying to lose weight, then go for it. Summer can be the busiest time of the year, though and hitting the gym every day isn’t always feasible. Plus, a gym membership can quickly eat up your vacation spending money — and then what’s the point of it all? If you’re looking for a more affordable, less time-consuming way to work out, we’ve got 10 deals to help you do just that without ever leaving your home. (Peep our top picks for the best at-home elliptical machines and treadmills too.)
The best workouts are the ones that don’t actually feel like workouts — like cycling, for example. But when it’s 100 degrees outside, pedaling for a few minutes can feel like a chore. Luckily, this Bike Lane Trainer Indoor Exercise Machine lets you pump the pedals whenever you want from the comfort of your home. If you have a quick release rear axle bike, you can easily set it up on this wide frame and feel just as natural as you would riding outdoors.
You can build muscle with barely any equipment: You just need something heavy to pick up. This Rock Solid Adjustable Kettlebell is the perfect space-saving workout option, as it spares you from keeping a whole rack of bells in your home and lets you perform high or low rep workouts of the same movement by just adjusting the weighted plates. You have seven different weight options, from 5 to 20 pounds, all in one package.
Typically $220, you can get this seven-in-one weight set for just $149 during the sale.
Ok, be honest. How often do you wipe down your yoga mat after a workout? That’s what we thought. This high-quality yoga mat is made of antibacterial ultra-fine microfiber, which helps to fight germs and odors.
Typically $45, the Antibacterial Yoga Mat is on sale now for just $19 — over 50% savings.
If your usual at-home workouts feel ineffective, you can easily enhance them with this Aduro Sport Balance Board. It makes every workout feel like you’re balancing on a surfboard. Simply use it as the foundation for squats, lunges, planks, or any balance-based exercise and you’ll feel the difference in your core strength immediately.
The Aduro Sport Balance Board is on sale for just $20 — that’s 50% off the usual price.
Another excellent space saving workout tool, the OYO Personal Gym weighs just two pounds, yet produces up to 15 pounds of smooth, balanced resistance. It basically gives you the fat-burning, muscle-building benefits of weightlifting without actually lifting weights. Plus, you can easily whip it out whenever you have a few extra minutes.
A $100 value, you can score the OYO Personal Gym SE for just $73 — a 26% savings.
Those resistance cable machines at the gym are one of the most effective and efficient ways to get a full-body workout. If you want that same intensity from your apartment or house, grab this Resistance Door Gym, set it up on any sized door in your home, and get swole.
Originally $70, you’ll find the Resistance Door Gym on sale for just $25 for a limited time.
There’s something about tracking your workouts that can really help to motivate you. This SmartFit PAL Trainer Watch shows you your exercises and monitors your progress as you move, whether you’re into cycling, yoga, running, or swimming. Plus, it’s just a fraction of the price of popular options like Apple or Garmin watches.
Worth $194, the SmartFit PAL Trainer Watch is on sale for just $30 — 84% off the retail value.
Looking for something different to get you up and moving? Try this machine that uses gentle vibrations to help you burn calories while you’re lunging, squatting, or planking. A little goes a long way, as just 10 minutes of balancing on this Whole Body Vibration Fitness Machine can give you a full-body workout.
You can knock $249 off the original price and get the Whole Body Vibration Fitness Machine for $200.
