Top 5 Home Workout Products (and how to use them)



I've lately been on a workout kick, and while I do love my gym membership, sometimes I just like to work up a sweat from the comfort of my own home.  Here are the five best simple home workout products I use to get fit fast.


1.  BOSU Home Balance Trainer

The Bosu Balance Trainer, though pricey, is one of the most versatile pieces of exercise equipment available, and perfect for your at home gym.  It also is great for small living spaces!  You can do squats, push ups, crunches, and other balance and strength exercises to get your heart rate up and your muscles working hard.  Check out the video below for some simple and effective at home BOSU workouts!

2.  Jump Rope

A recent revelation I have made is that jump ropes aren't just for kids.  You can get a killer full body cardio and strength workout by mixing up intervals using nothing more than a simple jump rope.  Warning: your calves may burn for days after an intense jump rope exercise!!  Check out this high intensity interval workout below!

3.  Kettle Bell

Better than your average hand weights, the kettle bell has so many awesome workouts that you can do just about anywhere.  Go light with a 5 pounder or get intense with 15-20 pounds.  Either way, you will definitely feel the burn in your arms shortly after beginning!  Check out this awesome kettle bell workout to try at home done by none other than Jillian Michaels!


4.  Medicine Ball
