I really want my readers to become healthier and more active. That’s why I want to emphasize the importance of working out here. Furthermore, I want to state that you can work out anywhere you want and not just at the gym.

That’s right, you can work out outside or in your home. And for people who want to work out at home, I have some recommendations for you. In this article, I have a list of the best home workout items that you can get. Think of these items as a way for you to invest in your own home gym and health. I hope that by investing in some items for a home gym, you’ll be more motivated to work out regularly.

Weighted armbands

Do you want to exercise and do other activities at the same time? Then try these weighted armbands. They are cheap and discreet enough to wear. You can practically wear them all the time even at work. These armbands come in various weights, feel free to get the ones that are heavy enough but won’t disturb your daily activities.

Weighted jump rope

I love jump ropes, and nowadays there are so many different products that you can choose from. But my choice falls to a weighted jump rope. A weighted jump rope comes with adjustable weight and is usually has high quality. And one more important piece of information for you: jumping rope is a great replacement for running or jogging.

Yoga mat

I love yoga mats; they can be used not only for yoga but also for other exercises such as push up and sit up. Make sure you get one with non-slip material for mort comfort. Don’t worry, nowadays yoga mats, even the good ones, are cheap. And don’t forget to choose one with the right length and width.

Pull-up bar

A pull-up bar is something that you can attach to your doorway. You can install it on the top side and use it for pull-ups. Or you can install it on the mid-low side and use it for pushups. Obviously, you want to get one that is portable and can be moved around if you want to use it other than for pullups.

Kettlebell with handle

A kettlebell is great for all-around workouts. Many workout programs are featuring a kettlebell, so it should be worth your money to get one for your home gym. A kettlebell can be used for swings, squats, and bench presses. It is easy to use and store. This tool is the perfect item to get for people who want flexibility and have limited space.

Rack power cage

Now, this item is a bit bigger than the rest, but if you have the space, I recommend getting this one in your house. A rack power could help you improve your bench press, deadlift, and barbell squat. And if you do decide to get one, then your home gym could be focused on it. Meaning that other items to get and your workout program could be centered on using the rack power.

A dumbbell set

A dumbbell is like the basic item that everyone should have. It is flexible, easily adjustable, small, and most importantly effective. Make sure you get one with adjustable weight, so it will last for much longer. You can start with lightweight and move all the way up to the max weight that the dumbbell allows. Get a dumbbell with a rubber grip in the middle part to make it easier for grabbing.

Many workout programs use one or two dumbbells. So you can get a lot of options for your workout schedule. How you use a dumbbell would depend on what muscle you want to train. Practically, you can use one or two dumbbells every day and still be able to train almost every part of your body.


All these items above can help you exercise efficiently for cheap. It is always great to be able to invest in any of these items and actually use them. Not only now you can easily work out at home whenever you want, but you also know that you’re progressing every day.
