It’s the time of year where people make a commitment to their health and wellness! While joining a gym is great, it’s not always the best option for some people, especially busy working mothers. And building a home gym requires space and a lot of money. But you CAN get an effective workout with minimal equipment that’s affordable and can be stored in a closet. And by working out at home, you spare yourself the time it would take to drive to and from the gym!

But choose to get yourself well because you can’t pour from an empty cup.
Affordable Home Gym Equipment
Dumbbells: The most basic gym equipment, and they come in several different weights to suit everyone’s needs.
Kettlebell: You can find a variety of kettlebell workouts on Pinterest and YouTube.
Mini Bands: Cheap, easy to carry with you, great for working out on the go and when space is minimal.
Strength Bands: More versatile than mini bands, and great for getting a good workout while traveling. Plus, they don’t take up much space, making them ideal for those with limited room to store equipment.
Cloth Band: Do your butt a favor and get a cloth band! It’s a game changer when it comes to glute exercises.
Yoga Mat: If you have hard floors, a mat makes floor exercises a lot more comfortable.
Yoga Block: Not just for yoga workouts; these blocks are great for offset pushups and much more!
Stability Ball: Works your core no matter what move you’re doing…a strong core is a great foundation for overall strength!
Step: Step-ups, box jumps, offset pushups…the list goes on! This is a great piece of equipment to have on hand.
Bench: If lying on the floor isn’t your thing, a bench keeps you elevated. Plus, you can do so many things with it! If you have the space for it, invest in a weight bench for dips, presses, step-ups, and more!
