It’s not just you: Home workout gear has been hard to find since the COVID-19 pandemicfirst struck. But now, about a year after we’ve adjusted to being indoors more than ever, tons of top-rated exercise equipment, including stationary bikes, weight sets, and treadmills, are back in stock on Amazon at some incredible prices. With a little creativity (and just two days for shipping), you’ll get moving in no time.
You already know that working out is good for you, but recent research reveals just how beneficial it can be, especially these days. One 2019 study found a link between regular exercise and a healthy immune system. Another from 2018 discovered that people who exercise three to five times a week have about half as many poor mental health days as those who don’t get active. In other words, exercise can improve both your physical and mental health, even if you don’t sweat it out every single day.
So, you might as well pick up a few top-rated pieces of fitness gear, even if you’re not entirely sold on building a full home gym. If you do happen to have the space for a complete fitness studio, you’re also in luck—from free weights to rowing machines, pretty much everything you need to recreate the gym experience at home is on Amazon, and some of it is even on sale right now.
We combed through thousands of reviews to find the absolute best exercise equipmentavailable on Amazon. Read on to find our top-rated picks—and let’s get moving!

I think all of these gears are very useful at very affordable prices. Working out at home can be as easy as at the gym. I always prefer working out at home, because at the gym there are so many people are also so many tend to stare at you!! I love all of these gears and they make my workouts so much easier and so much fun! But of course you don’t need them, you can workout without any equipments too! Make the best out of what you have and if you are enjoying it get some gears!!
Happy training to you all
