These pieces of equipment, all available for purchase from the comfort of your couch, will help elevate your fitness game with the best fitness tools of 2023 and make your home gym the envy of your friends.
Wear a pair of these two- to seven-pound ankle and wrist weights while you do everyday chores or while you walk, run, or perform your favourite cardio to up the ante that much more.
These lightweight, portable bands can be stacked together for up to 150 pounds of workout power. Plus, they have anti-snap technology, so you won’t have to worry about being smacked in the face by a wayward band.
Keep these non-slip elastic loops in your car or backpack for those times that you just need to workout – lunchtime at work, during breaks on your hike, or at rest stops on a long road trip.
This classic ab exerciser, when done right, will leave your obliques with that “good” soreness the next day, and the bars will help alleviate some of the wrist discomfort associated with push-ups. Don’t worry: the kit comes with pads to protect your knees while you’re working up to the advanced versions of these moves.
Another great flat-band option, these wide bands won’t slip under your feet when doing curls or rows. Use them in your stretching routine as well, to help you stretch your dollar even further (pardon the pun).
Whether using dumbbells, resistance bands or barbells (if you’ve got them), this adjustable gym-quality bench will help you hit all your muscles’ angles with each and every rep. Bonus: it’s super easy to put together.
Rowing machines are greatly underrated – they provide full-body cardio in a small footprint – yet they are often overlooked as a home gym option. Enter this version, which uses magnetic resistance to challenge your body with each pull.
Track all your metrics – steps, calories burned, kilometres, sleep – while looking super stylish. Plus, push your progress to the max with a free six-month trial of Fitbit Premium.
Consider this the greatest fitness invention since the wheel. Choose your weight – from four to 12 pounds – and then bounce, twist, press, and curl your way to a stronger body. Its texturized exterior also helps you grip, no matter how much you sweat.
Need to get some aggression out? These durable balls are designed for being thrown, smashed, and otherwise destroyed in some of your favourite CrossFit exercises. Splurge for two weights – you’ll want a heavier one for when you inevitably progress to tougher moves.
Winter weather be damned! Get your sweat on without going to the gym or hitting the trail on your new, compact elliptical. Increase the intensity by dialing up the magnetic resistance – you’ll notice your heart rate rising in no time.
