1. Row-N-Ride®

There’s a reason the Row-N-Ride has quickly become a cult favorite among Sunny customers. It’s affordable and it provides a surprisingly intense burn and sweat! Target your glutes, hamstrings, quads, calves, core, back, and shoulders through squat and row variations on this machine. Just give yourself 10-20 minutes on this machine, and you’ll be feeling the burn!

2. Mini Stepper

Mini steppers are a great way to burn calories and challenge your cardiovascular system all while toning your glutes, hamstrings, quads, and calves. Target your upper body by using the attached resistance bands to complete upper body exercises as you step. This cardio machine is an affordable way to get a great cardio workout from home while compact, which makes it easy for storage or moving from room to room in your house. Below I’ve included a few of my personal favorite workouts using our mini steppers, but be sure to check out our YouTube channel for more great workouts using these versatile machines!



3. Exercise Ball

An exercise ball is a great tool for strengthening your entire body. It requires a great deal of stability to balance on a ball like this, which makes it great for completing a variety of ab exercises, glute bridges, or hamstring curls. It can even be used to sit on while performing dumbbell curls or other upper body exercises to add a stability and coordination challenge to your workout. An exercise ball makes a great addition to any home gym! Be sure to check out a few of our workouts I’ve collected below for ideas of how to use your stability ball at home.



4. Jump Rope

Jump roping is an incredible form of cardiovascular exercise, it’s not only challenging but highly portable as this would be an easy piece of equipment to pack into a carry on bag and bring along with you on vacation. Jump ropes are great for beginners to advanced exercisers as they can be used for a variety of workouts from HIIT to circuit style training. Use it for a cardio boost between exercises like pushups and squats or jump rope for 5 minutes for a great warmup before any workout.



5. Yoga Mat

A yoga mat is a must for any home gym! Not only is it nice to have for yoga and stretching, but it’s also great as a surface for bodyweight and ab workouts. This is a purchase you’ll get your money’s worth and more out of! Check out a few of our workouts below using just a mat, but be sure to check out our YouTube channel for a wide variety of workouts that can all be done from just a yoga mat.



6. Dumbbells

In my opinion, no home gym is complete without a set of dumbbells. What’s great is that they’re affordable and they last forever. They’re great for circuit style workouts, strength training, and everything in between - trust me, you’ll find yourself using them time and time again. Regardless of your fitness goals, you’ll want to have a solid set of dumbbells in your home gym!




7. Aerobic Step

An aerobic step is another great piece of equipment that will really broaden your options when it comes to workouts. Not only can you use an aerobic step for a great cardiovascular workout, but it’s also great for bodyweight HIIT workouts or in combination with dumbbells and resistance bands to complete strength training exercises like bench presses, splits squats, and hip thrusts.



I hope this article has helped show you some affordable options for getting an incredible workout at home with a small investment. These pieces of equipment are staples that will help you achieve a well-rounded fitness routine to help you reach your fitness goals!
