Ever since quarantine hit, many people, including myself, have started working out at home. My mother-in-law recently moved out, so we have the whole downstairs to ourselves again, and we are creating a home gym! My list of At Home Gym Must Have Gear will hopefully help you out and get you motivated! We are SO excited! For the past year, I have been buying items to put in our home gym. So far, so good!
I have also received many items to review from some awesome companies. As soon as our home gym is complete, I will give you a tour of it! My oldest son and will be using it the most since we are the ones that work out daily. (Read my review for the AGOGIE Resistance Pants!)
At Home Gym Must Have Gear
From workout gear to fitness clothing and more, I have a wonderful list of at-home gym must-haves for you below!
SetForSet was created to help you achieve your highest level of performance by providing kick-butt unconventional training equipment and functional fitness workouts. I received their 3 band bundle and a 10lb steel mace.
3 Band Workout Bundle
Set For Set’s Power Bands provide an effective and efficient way to improve your overall physical performance. You can place them perfectly in your very own home gym to increase the intensity of your home workout.
Yellow – 10 to 35 Pounds 1/2″ (Lowest resistance)
Black – 30 to 60 Pounds 3/4″
Blue – 40 to 80 Pounds 1.25″
The 3 band workout bundle retails for only $14.95. You can buy them HERE.
10lb Steel Mace
I have never seen anything like this before and it is really cool! I had to watch a video to learn how to use it so I did it properly and didn’t hurt myself. These start at 7lbs and go all the way up to 30lbs! Steel Maces are forged from steel, sporting an expertly crafted head that is welded onto the knurled steel grip handle; our steel maces are virtually indestructible.
The Steel Mace or “Gada” was originally used as a deadly weapon in warfare by Hindu and Persian warriors in the 13th century. Due to its functionality and ease of use, Pelwhani wrestlers started using the Macebell for physical training. Nowadays, the steel mace is rapidly becoming known as the ‘ultimate full-body conditioning tool‘.
The mace holds almost the entirety of its weight in the ball head, which results in uneven weight distribution. Because of this, steel mace exercises engage smaller stabilizing muscles around our joints. This kind of offset training will increase your core & rotational strength and athletic performance tenfold.
The Steel Maces start at $27.95 and go up from there. You can purchase them HERE.
Balanced Body also has more than 50 free workouts and “mini-workout” breaks, with mindful movement videos you can do at home, and affordable product bundles to re-energize your workout space at home or on the go. Balanced Body has some really great fitness products that are a must-have for your home gym!
I received these from Balanced Body:
Balanced Body 3lb hand weights
Ultra-Fit Circle® Mini
The SmartBell is a powerhouse of tool for both strength and core training exercises. SmartBell also does double-duty as a stretch and release tool. Great for group classes and for workouts at home. It is uniquely shaped to carve through space in flowing, rotational movements. The two-handed grip allows a high level of control while conforming to your body, and when physical challenges call for holding it with both hands. The extended flowing movements stretch and tone your whole body or targeted muscle groups. They retail for $20.
SmartBell is available in two weights and several colors:
1.5 lb (0.7kg)
Balanced Body 3lb hand weights
Balanced Body super-grip 3 lbs hand weights offer all the benefits of lightweight training with an ergonomic shape that fits your palm. Perfect for developing arm and upper body strength, increasing the difficulty of specific exercises, and enhancing intensity while cardio conditioning! Soft, comfortable easy grip with textured non-slip surface. Integrated adjustable strap for secure fit — and is removable. Latex, PVC, phthalates, and chloride-free. Retail for $30 for a pair or $16 for a single.
Ultra-Fit Circle® Mini
Lightweight with comfortable inner/outer handles, our wildly popular Ultra-Fit Circle is also available in a smaller size! We’ve trimmed it by 3” in diameter and the resistance is lighter. The result? A ring that is perfect for smaller body types, beginners, and when it’s important to achieve better leg alignment. 12” (30cm) outside diameter.
- Perfect for smaller body types and narrow shoulders.
- Easier lower bodywork due to smaller size.
- Achieve better leg alignment with feet directly under hips.
- Light resistance is great for beginners.
I have never tried a waist trainer before but was excited too! I have always heard and saw great things about them and wanted to try it out for myself. Mommy Magic sent me one to try out and it is SO comfortable. For being my very first one to try out, it is a great experience so far! You can even sleep with it on.
This waist trainer is perfect for moms right after they have their little bundle of joy! It helps with back pain too! These are great for moms looking to get back in shape after having their baby! Of course, I did not just have a baby, but that is the beauty of these! Anyone at any time can wear this! This waist trainer is also good at helping you burn a few calories! I wear it sometimes during the day when I am doing my daily activities. When I take it off, there is A LOT of sweat going on!
Features of the Waist Trainer:
*All-inclusive waist trainer belt which fits securely to your waist with elasticated Velcro.
*Fashionable black and pink design.

*Stretchy Lycra design which helps the skin breathe whilst being worn.
*Exclusive Mommy Magic branding on the belt.
*Universal waist size design.
Fabric Booty Bands
Every home gym needs some fabric booty bands! I love these because they are SO much harder to use with your workouts, meaning they are GOOD to use! I feel the burn so much quicker when I use my booty bands.
These Adelyn Active Booty Bands are perfect for your butt. Doing squats and lunges themselves won’t get you this level of results than when you use these resistance bands. In fact, studies have shown that the use of resistance bands activates more muscle groups than standard strength training. Use these booty bands for 10 minutes as a warm-up and you’ll experience great results.
- 3 Piece Fabric Resistance Bands
- High-Quality Fabric with Anti-Slip Inner Grip Stripes
- Varying Resistances for Incremental Training
- Comes with Carrying Pouch so bring it wherever you go

Another great addition to your home gym is core sliders! I have never used these before, but now that I am working on my core, I wanted to try them out. ADELYN Active sent me these core sliders and they are awesome. They even work when I use them on my carpet!
Get great exercises done and shape your perfect figure with the Adelyn Active Core Slider Discs. These high-quality and durable sliders enhance your ab routines, giving you more results for the sweat you put in.

Backmate is one big sigh of relief to expel the physical tension and emotional stress built up in our day, and offers a long list of other benefits such as natural back pain relief, headache, muscle tension, tech neck, etc., leading to lasting recovery.
The Backmate relieves pain by calming the nervous system and blocking pain signals to the brain while also stimulating soft tissue health and increasing circulation and range of motion. This is great to use after a hard workout too! That is why this is on my list of At-Home Gym Must-Haves!
This is easy to set up! You put it in a door frame and use it. When you are finished with it, you can EASILY take it down and store it away! I love how easy it was to set up and to take down when you are done with it!
I received the Backmate a few days ago, set it up, and have been using it ever since. My oldest son used it first and the lower back pain he was having constantly, is completely gone. I know he is young, but he was SO happy with the results from using Backmate ONE time! I used it too and it feels SO good on my lower back! I also have a lot of neck pain and using it on my neck felt really good.
+ Target and apply just the right amount of massage pressure – The Backmate allows you to feel your body, quickly find your problem areas and then apply just the right amount of pressure
+ Keep your muscles relaxed while you massage yourself – You just lean in to apply pressure. No need to use or tighten the muscles you are massaging

I love using a massage gun on my sore muscles after a long workout! This is definitely a must-have in our home gym! I received the EKRINB37 massage gun and I use this a few times a week.
