We have all been there before: Looking to make a change that inspires a little bit more movement in our day-to-day lives, we pick up a piece of quote-unquote life-changing workout equipment for our homes— whether it’s a fancy expensive bike, a treadmill with a fancy incline or a heavy-duty weight bench — that only months later becomes a place where you leave backpacks, coats and miscellaneous stuff.
Or, better yet, it’s just a big bulky thing that lives in your living room and you sometimes stub your toe on it. Either way? It’s not the vibe.
But that doesn’t mean you need to abandon your dreams of having a at-home space to move around, get your heart rate up or lift to your heart’s content. It just means that maybe you’re looking to invest in the kind of pieces that complement your home more than they take over it and acquire the kind of things that are compact as they are useful.
Luckily, we’re living in an age where this kind of exercise gear is on the rise. Read on and discover a few of our favorite space-saving exercise must-haves and start building out the home gym (but not like that) at-home workout space of your dreams.
