It’s the first week of January, and we all know that the gyms can be completely slammed this time of year. With new year’s resolutions in full swing we couldn’t think of a better time than now to give you some at home accessories to avoid the chaos at the gym. Plus, January is a great time to save money after the holiday’s and these accessories are budget-friendly and will help skip paying for a class or two at the gym. Hopefully this inspires your fitness goals too!

Jumping rope is one of the top forms of cardio. It will get your heart racing in no time, and it’s an excellent way to get lean, toned legs. Plus, this requires no track or treadmill. All you need is a jump rope, and a space that’s big enough to swing it over your head.

This premium quality jump rope from Amazon is just $10 and features a non-tangled material, and is very lightweight. It features over 5,000 reviews and has a 4.3/5 stars on Amazon.

Another great option is the CANWAY Jump Rope that has a 360 degree swivel ball that creates a speedy and flexible rotation. This jump rope is just $13 and will last for years to come.

Resistance bands can be used in hundreds of different ways. Whether you’re using them to tone your legs or using them for bicep curls, it’s a great way to gain lean muscle. These bands are convenient because they require little space, and are very affordable, too.

Most of the sets provide you with a variety of different resistance levels. The tighter bands can work well for small movements, while others that are longer and looser can be a good fit for bigger muscle groups.

A great option is the Fit Simply Resistance Band set. This set comes with five different bands and strengths for just $11. Better yet, these bands have over 6,000 reviews and have a 4.6/5 star rating.

Many activities at the gym require free weights. So, it should be no surprise that having some options at home is a good idea. AmazonBasics has Neoprene Dumbells for just $25 and includes weights ranging from 2-5 pounds. These are perfect for resistance training.

Other options include the Tone Fitness Kettlebells which feature higher weights from 5-15 pounds. Better yet, these are currently on sale for $28 and usually run for $90.

Lastly, a Bosu Ball or workout ball forces your body to stabilize, which engages your abdomen to make your core stronger. This is also great to use as a work chair as well. The ProBody Pilates Workout Ball is perfect for everyday workouts. It comes in six different color options and is just $23.
