It’s hard to remember how many days it’s been since I last stepped foot inside an actual gym. Instead, my living room has become my go-to fitness studio, where Zoom workouts are the new norm. Despite all the different ways you can get in a sweat in your own space, it’s hard not to miss the gym equipment you once loved to hate, from the treadmill to the weights.
You don’t have to wait to get the a-okay to head back to the gym. Instead, there’s home gym equipment for small spaces that won’t take up your entire living room. Here are the best options to try.
The best home gym equipment for small spaces
1. XTERRA Fitness Folding Exercise Bike, $139
When you’re not using this highly-rated exercise bike, you can fold it up and stick it in the closet. It also has a comfortable seat, LCD window that displays your speed, distance, and other information, and eight levels of resistance.
2. BodyBoss 2.0 Full Portable Home Gym, $239
No gym available? No problem. This allows you to get in the same workout at home by simulating the equipment you know and love—deadlifts, included.
3. The Mirror, $1,495
The Mirror might be pricey, but it’s worth the hype. Not only does the sleek device allow you to do numerous different workouts at home—including cardio, strength, Pilates, boxing, and more—but it also uses a two-way audio and video interface that makes it possible for you to virtually work out with a real personal trainer.
You can feel like a kid again with this mini trampoline rebounder that allows you to do joint-friendly cardio at home. It comes with an adjustable foam padded railing, and it can be folded twice for easy storage.
5. TRX Suspension Trainer for Home, $130
This portable do-anywhere TRX suspension trainer has multiple anchors that can be hooked up to doors, poles, beams—basically whatever you have in your home—allowing you to safely use it for push-ups, planks, squats, lunges, and more.
If you miss the treadmill but don’t have space for one in your home, this slim foldable option is the way to go. Once you’re done using it, you can easily store it under your couch or bed.
