5 Home Gym Staples for the Small Space



Having a home gym doesn’t mean having an entire room dedicated to storing it. These 5 Home Gym Staples can be stored (and used) in even the tightest spaces and can be stored under a bed,in a drawer, or on some extra shelving in the garage.

A Jump Rope

Jump ropes are awesome for stand-alone cardio or incorporated into a Tabata workout, not to mention being the perfect travel companion. The Competition X4 Speed Rope is ideal for perfecting Double Unders. Try the Jump & Stretch Rope for travel, it doesn’t kink and does double-duty as a stretching aid.



Resistance Cables

Another versatile home gym/travel gear piece, resistance cables hone strength. The PowerAmp xXx FlexFast Cables have a middle strap to secure the middle of the cable to a pipe or framing. Use them to increase your upper body strength.



A Weight Vest

Using a weight vest during your normal workout increases resistance and helps build core strength, speed and endurance. The HumanX Weight Vest now comes in a 40lb option (in addition to the 20lb) to add an edge to your push-ups, sit-ups, dead lifts, burpees or sprints.


A Mat

340306 Ribbed Durafoam Mat - bright orange

The Antimicrobial Durafoam™ Mat cushions your knees during stretches like runner’s lunge and is the ideal back cushion for a floor ab workout. The  Eco-Fit Mat is great base for stretching, especially yoga (did you catch our Yoga for Powerlifting post?). It rolls up for easy storage in even the smallest New York City apartment.

We’re not partial to picking favorites, but if you can only add one piece of gear to your home gym, add a balance trainer.
