Home Workout Essentials

I do NOT have a home gym. I live in San Francisco which means that I barely have a closet let alone separate space for a gym.

What I do have though is a corner of a hall closet dedicated to my home workout pieces. You can do virtually any basic home workout with just a few pieces of equipment.

So what are my home workout suggestions? Here are the essential pieces of equipment that I’d recommend:

  • Yoga Mat: You can use this for yoga or Pilates, but also for core work and stretching. It’s a simple piece that’s very versatile so it tops my list.
  • Foam Roller: This is a must for me, I roll out almost daily. And the great thing is that you can pick whatever style suits your needs – Super soft (beginners), textured (good for tight muscles), or mini (perfect for throwing in your gym bag!)
  • Resistance Bands: These easy-to-store pieces are lifesavers, they take up no space and can be used instead of weights. Perfect for home, and perfect for traveling.
  • Stability Ball: You can do core work, legs and glutes, or even arms using a stability ball, so its super versatile.
  • Kettlebell(s): If I were going to invest in one weight, it would be a kettlebell rather than a set of dumbbells.

With just these pieces at home, I can tackle everything from yoga to a bodyweight session to a Tone It Up workout with no problem.

Tell me – What are YOUR home workout essentials? Am I missing your favorite piece of equipment?
