Home Equipment That Really Works

By Genevieve Cunningham

Sometimes the hardest part of working out is getting out of your house and getting to the gym. It’s tough to roll out of bed and trudge across town all for a workout that you didn’t really want to do in the first place. If this sounds like you, you can relax; a solution has been found! If you can’t make it to the gym, bring the gym home! To get started toward the perfect home gym, check out these pieces of equipment that are perfect for your house.

Jump Rope

Jumping rope is so incredibly hard. It's great for kids with endless energy, but for adults, it's a serious challenge. You’ll be out of breath in no time.Your muscles will be burning in protest. And you’ll probably trip and fall over the rope for the first few times you try this activity. But jumping rope is also incredibly good for you. It burns massive calories, builds muscle in the legs, and improves your cardio like never before. And for a home gym, it’s a great choice because it takes up virtually zero space. Hit up your local store, grab a jump rope, and get busy jumping your heart out.

Medicine Ball

A medicine ball is a big heavy ball that comes in varying weights. You can use a medicine ball to hold over your head, to throw, or to lift. It’s very versatile, and again, it takes up very little space. The only catch? For some exercises, you might need a partner to catch or throw the ball back to you. But give this a try and you’ll likely build muscles in your arms and abs.


You can either buy an aerobic step or you can just use stairs at your house. Talk about easy! Steps are excellent additions to any workout. Stepping or jumping on the step makes a simple workout more difficult. If you can adjust the height of the step, it can make it even more challenging. Give this a try, and you’ll be loving the results of this simple piece of equipment.

If you’re ready to make your home gym effective, just grab these small pieces of equipment and get busy. You’ll be able to increase your fitness and improve your body without ever leaving the comfort of your home. With this quick and easy home gym, your excuses will be gone and your overall health will definitely thank you.
