Cute, unobtrusive and easy-to-use workout gear is a must-have for anyone who wants to really commit to adding more movement to their lifestyles. Unless you’ve fallen in love with an equipment-free workout, you might have your own “this will make me want to workout” grave yard of gear — ranging from ellipticals and treadmills that you use as a clothes rack to funky gimmick-y gear (like this weighted hula hoop) — and though you buy them with the best of intentions, it can be disheartening to collect a lot of less-than-versatile stuff that reminds you of all the workouts you’re just not doing.
But there’s a few classic pieces that will rarely sit shamefully useless in your living room — things like a good set of weights, a medicine ball, a yoga mat and a set of ankle and wrist weights.
You might’ve seen this pair from Bala in the past. They are classic, totally adorable (if you like frantically leave your workout to accept a package at the door you won’t feel silly being spotted in them) and give you a bit of extra resistance to make any activity you’re doing a bit more of a workout. But the Bala Bangles — while absolutely beloved by your friend who does Barre — clock in at $49 and have been out of stock more than once, so it’s nice to have alternative options.
Enter this pair from Amazon: the Foreva Fit ankle and wrist weights. At $39.99, you’ll save a couple bucks without skimping on the comfort, quality or ~aesthetics~ of the other pair.

They are adjustable and pretty dang sleek, just like the Bala pair, and are made from high-quality silicone with a texturized inside to keep them in place during your workout.
If you were looking for some comfortable weights that will never not be useful (even if it’s been a while since you’ve really tried to workout), these might just be your perfect match.
