Must Have Home Fitness Equipment: The Essential Stuff

Adjustable Dumbbells: Are essential for bent over rows, squats, lunges, presses, and core work. If you buy regular you'll need to buy light, medium, and heavy to accomodate your entire body. Adjustable dumbbells are more versatile and take up less space.

Jump Rope: Super effective for burning fat, building endurance and agility. Also great for arm and shoulder workouts and can be a great ab workout too. For as little as $7 go can't go wrong!

Stability Ball: You'll need one for chest work, core work, and leg work. They also come in handy when stretching and easily sub for a bench. If you're under 5'4" then a 55 cm is a much better fit. People taller than 6'1" might feel more comfortable on a 75 cm ball or you can try a stability ball that can go either way 65 cm - 75 cm.

Resistance Bands: These are great for full body exercises like chop squats, reverse lunges with rows, high pulls, punches, and more. They're also great for travel workouts. The red cable is moderate resistance and the blue cable is hard but you can get an entire set for less.
