Home Gym Essentials

As a mom who works from home, investing in a treadmill was one of the best things I ever did!! Having my own workout space right at home literally SAVED my sanity when Ava was a newborn. Since then, (especially during quarantine) it’s just so convenient to be able to throw on sneakers work out from home. Plus, the whole “I don’t feel like getting dressed and driving to the gym” excuse doesn’t work anymore, which makes the whole consistency thing a breeze!

We’re currently working on renovating our detached garage into a full home gym! We were honestly just using that space as a storage unit (aka hoarding things we don’t need lol) so a few weeks ago we threw just about all of it out and started the process! I’ve been spending A LOT of time shopping for new gym equipment. And you guys, there are so many cute things! The new Blogilates collection at Target might be my favorite. Everything is pink or rose gold and I am seriously obsessed!

Pretty much everything I ordered is from Amazon and Target, so I’m hoping to have this space finished within the next couple of weeks! Sharing all my home gym essentials and fitness finds below!


01. One of the best yoga mats for at-home workouts! It’s sturdy and non-slip, so it won’t move around while you’re exercising.

02. We’ve had this ProForm Pro 2000 Smart treadmill for years and it is THE best. I love all the features!

03. Mini fridge to keep your drinks cool for post-workout. Holds up to 120 cans!

04. The Blogilates fitness collection at Target is SO cute! I mean have you ever seen a pink and gold kettle bell!?

05. This smart mirror might be the best part of our home gym! You can stream live + on-demand workouts and the best part, it comes with all the training accessories you need.

06. Another Target find! I’m obsessed with this gold weight rack. Plus it’s under $30.

07. I love adding these Bala ankle weights for added resistance when I’m doing cardio exercises!

08. These are hands down the BEST portable speakers! The sound quality is amazing and they even come in rose gold.

09. I LOVE our dyson fan because it serves two purposes. One, it keeps us cool while we’re working out and two, it purifies the air to remove dust, bacteria, pollen and other allergens!

10. This portable ballet barre is a must have IMO for at-home barre workouts! It’s very affordable too!

11. This under $20 foam roller is great for post-workouts to relieve any muscle soreness.

12. Obsessed with this set of gold hand weights. They look very luxe!

13. How cute are these resistance bands? You get a set of three bands so you can choose between light, medium and hard intensity.

Pretty much everything I ordered is from Amazon and Target, so I’m hoping to have this space finished within the next couple of weeks!
