Are you feeling a little bored with your home workout routine? If so, it may be time to try a new form of exercise, or maybe splurge on some fun exercise equipment to mix things up a bit!
Here are 5 pieces of home exercise equipment you may not have tried before to help add some novelty into your workouts.
1. Everlast PowerCore Freestanding Heavy Bag
Boxing is a fun but intense sport that will work your entire body, from arms, shoulders, and back, to core and legs. Most people don’t have a place to hang a boxing bag in their homes, but this free-standing version is perfect for the home gym. If you enjoy boxing, or have been wanting to try it, but hate having to go to the gym to practice, now you can do it at home instead.
2. Sportneer Wooden Balance Board for Exercise, Gym, Sport Performance Enhancement, Rehab & Training
Being able to balance properly will help prevent falls, strengthen your core, improve your posture, and prevent injury. A balance board is a fun way to achieve all of these benefits. (Keep in mind that you will want to practice next to a counter or chair when starting out, as it’s harder than it looks!)
This can be used by all family members to work on balance and core strength – or just for fun. You can even have a contest to see who can stay on it longest (if you’ve got kids you’re probably not going to win)!
3. TriggerPoint GRID Foam Roller
Feeling stiff and sore? Want to improve your flexibility? This foam roller should be a regular part of your exercise routine. You’ll find that once you start using it regularly, you’ll have a better range of motion and improve balance. This roller comes with a free instructional DVD to help you get the most out of the equipment.
4. ProSource Tube Resistance Bands Set
Resistance bands provide a whole body workout and can be used anywhere – even while traveling. They are perfect for both beginners and fitness nuts and will help strengthen and tone your muscles while going easy on your joints. They can be used for a wide range of exercises and are lightweight and portable to go wherever you do.
5. Stamina 36-Inch Folding Trampoline
There’s no doubt about it – jumping on a trampoline is just plain fun! You’ll feel like a kid again while getting a great workout. You might not be able to do backflips on this one, but you’ll still get plenty of exercise, and it folds up for easy storage.
If you’re feeling a little bored with your workout, these unique pieces of exercise equipment are not too expensive, and they can help give you some much-needed variety so that you can enjoy your workouts again.
