Promising review: “Beautiful shoes! I bought them to use as indoor workout shoes and they fit like a glove in my original size (8). I was worried the tongue would rub on my ankle because of how these are designed, but they didn’t upon multiple uses. I primarily use them for various aerobic exercises, like walking on the treadmill or elliptical.” —Sarah S.
Promising review: “I am always looking for durable high quality products that can withstand my workouts. I have been using this jump rope as part of my workout and it has not disappointed. The handles have a nice well balanced light weight feel and the rope spins freely. The jump rope comes with two cables, the handles, and a bag inside of a quality box.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “This is great for stress relief and I get a good cardio workout. I don’t think heavy hitters would get a good workout from this, however my husband did punch it will all his might and the bag did not fly off, so that’s good. I’m going to try using it as a target during my cardio boxing classes instead of just punching the air.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “Nothing has been helping. From running, to walking uphill both ways to work (yes, this is possible), to wearing heels all day, my calves were tight. Nothing has been working. This roller was a godsend. I actually have more mobility after using it than traditional stretching, and I think there was a knot in each calf that it worked out. This is a must-have.” —Raven
Promising review: “As the latest add-on to my home gym collection, this workout station let me do pull-ups, dips, deep and wide push-ups, and leg raises. Great for my morning warm up. Assembling it by myself is as easy as 1, 2, 3. It comes with tools too. It is sturdy and nicely painted. Height is adjustable although i wish the width of the side cushion and dip handles can be adjusted.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: ” I love how versatile this piece of equipment is! There are so many great exercises you can do with it, not just abdominal conditioning. I really love to use it for shoulder mobility and the hamstring exercise is a killer! Excited to keep playing around with it to see what else I can use it for!” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “These Beats headphones have been a real game-changer for me. The sound quality is so much better than my cheap headphones, which has actually really improved my experience at the gym. I find it easier to stay motivated now that my music is *crystal clear* (and I can’t hear myself wheezing on the treadmill).” —Emma McAnaw, BuzzFeed Editor
Promising review: “I love these bands. I love that they tell you the pound equivalent for the type of band you use (light vs heavy) and the bands are marked with the strength size so you know which one you are using. The bands are made of good quality material but still have a great amount of stretch.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “This is very lightweight and portable. It fits nicely on a runner rug next to my bed and doesn’t move around when I use it. The settings are easy to adjust, and it is quiet. I use it in the morning while I catch up on the news. I was reluctant to get a piece of exercise equipment but am very glad that I did!” —Caren S.
Promising review: “No complaints with these dumbbells! I needed a lightweight, durable set for prenatal barre workouts at home and these were perfect. They’re very easy to grip due to the neoprene coating. I love the fun colors, the price, and that I can use them for years to come.” —KS

Promising review: “Given that I live in an apartment, I cannot afford to have a lot of equipment. I finally decided to go for this bench to help me keep up with at least a few dumbbell based exercises. I must say in the last few days of usage, I am quite happy with the bench. I was surprised by how light it was. It came pretty much all assembled with only a couple of keys that need to be inserted/ tightened. Within a couple of minutes this was all set up and ready.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “I was really needing something to workout my abs as gyms in the area are closed. I used these discs at home for mountain climbers, sliding lunges, plank jacks, knee tucks, and other ab workouts and love it so far. Slides easily on my wooden floor and my abs are sore again so very happy with this purchase!” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “I’ve been using this in combo with my regular home workouts. I use it for push-ups, thigh work, and core work. It’s a keeper. The adjustable tension knobs are easy to use. There is no setup. Come all put together.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “It seriously has made me improve so much more during my practice, because I’m able to focus on my actual poses instead of getting slightly anxious that my yoga towel won’t stay in place during what is supposed to be one of the most relaxing parts of my day. Plus, the Cush Gummy towel is thick enough where if I wanted to travel with it, I wouldn’t have to lug my actual mat with me on my trip. I have a lot of yoga products I bring with me to class, but this is the most vital one!” —Anna Kopsky, BuzzFeed Community Strategist
Promising review: “I love it! The design is clean and simple. The games are basic, but still keep me in a plank longer than normal. I like the workout part, basically 30-second intervals of different exercises, you pick how many 30-second segments you want to do at a time. There is a daily challenge too. I would be bored to tears after one 40-second regular plank, I do over six minutes plus at each session on this and you really feel it strengthening your core.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “This towel has actually kept me working out and feeling good during hot days. I normally would force myself sluggishly to finish when the temperatures climb, but the towel kept my core down well enough that I did not overheat. A great solution and makes a great gift for the fitness enthusiast!” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “I’ve been working remotely and spending more time than I like on the sofa. With the Cubi Jr, I pedal constantly while working and watching TV, and feel my legs, thighs, buttocks, and ankles are at least being active. I pedal anytime I sit because you don’t realize you’re pedaling.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “I recently went to a couple classes at my local gym and the instructor let us use these exercise balls. I couldn’t believe how sore I was the next day! It was a good sore! I was hooked and immediately started searching for one on Amazon to have in my own home. This one seemed like a good price point and I liked that it also came with the resistance bands. I’ve used this exercise ball for the past several days in a row now and I have to say, I love it!” —Kayla
Promising review: “It is pretty good quality for home gym use. It is sturdy enough and the seat is actually very comfortable and I feel that I get a good ab workout with it. I love the flexibility to also work my obliques. I was also able to use the free weights and standard weight clips that I already owned to add extra weight to challenge my workout.” —DebS
Promising review: “I wasn’t sure what to expect, especially when I saw that I’d have to inflate this ball with a straw. It was remarkably easy to inflate (although it took a few tries to seal it without too much air escaping). It has the same look and feel of the Pilates ball that’s used in the studio. It comes with a ‘cheat sheet’ and I do about 75% of the exercises. A nice addition to my home exercise routine.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “I love this! It was the perfect addition to my home gym and saves me precious floor space. I have loaded this thing up to the brim. I have my 4-foot foam roller, my *two* yoga mats, knee support mat, my stretching ropes, and my resistance bands on this thing and it could probably handle more weight if I hadn’t run out of room.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “These cards are *amazing.* I love that I can schedule my workout week sensibly and safely, I really appreciate the tips on the backs of the cards! The HIIT and Core cards are such a nice bonus, too! My favorite part of this item is that I can do my workout at my pace without any annoying outdated music or chatting from a trainer, like you’d find on a DVD.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “I use this kettlebell very heavily during my workouts. I mainly bought it over the iron kettlebells so I could drop it without ruining my flooring. It’s an excellent product!” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: It’s taller and heavier than I expected, but I tell you one dang thing, it freakin’ works! You can only do it a few minutes at a time until you build up your tummy muscles but man oh man, will you ever build your abs with this thing. It’s easy to do because the weight of it helps swing it around without falling to your knees as you swing your hips round and round.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “I just received my stepper and it’s super easy to assemble and it’s sturdy. I tested it out and I am super excited for my first workout. This is the perfect machine, while we stay at home we can still work out and stay healthy.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “I am obsessed with these gloves and beyond happy that I purchased these. My lifts have been heavier thanks to the wrist support straps and the security of the palm grips. These are also incredibly comfortable throughout my entire workouts and thanks to the neoprene material, they’re moisture-absorbing.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “This is a great bike, it was easy to put together within 15-30 minutes of unboxing. The ride itself is quite smooth and quiet. The seats and posts adjust for the perfect fit, making it an optimal choice for in-home cycling. The bike is easy to move with adjustable floor levelers to adjust for uneven surfaces. The included timer is also simple and reliable or if you use an alternative device for tracking workouts, the tablet/phone dock attachment for the handle bars is quite secure.” —Amazon Customer
Promising review: “Nicely woven yoga strap. It’s relatively soft, but durable and strong. The rings are a good thickness, and it works well for me. I’ve only been using it for a month for at home beginner’s yoga, but its perfect for getting into and/or holding poses I wouldn’t be able to otherwise.” —Amazon Customer
