Missing the Gym? Check Out These 10 Workout Essentials

The situation at gyms is … precarious to say the least. With heightened coronavirus concerns, most fitness centers that reopened had to shut down again, and in many areas they never reopened to begin with. Although you may be tempted to forget the whole damn thing and spend the remainder of 2020 streaming too much Netflix and eating too many snacks, we’re about to hook you up with new motivation to get lean, gain big, or go hard at home. These workout essentials will keep you in shape and on budget — and they’re actually in stock, too.

This sweet fitness find links with the Smart Gym app via Bluetooth, letting you track your progress and stay motivated. It features a 45-degree rope housing and two sets of ball bearings in each handle to give you a flawless, natural motion. You can track your jump count, calories burned, and more.
