AT HOME FITNESS

13 Surprisingly Chic Workout Essentials You Can Find on Amazon


In the early, dark days of quarantine, when I craved any sense of routine, I found that online workout classes were my secret to sanity. Whether I was plugging into my favorite dance class or a low-impact yoga flow, carving out that hour for myself helped add structure and balance to days that felt endless. The ideal at-home workout experience begins with a few key essentials: a large water bottle, comfortable sneakers, a well-cushioned yoga mat, and of course, great workout attire. On any day of the week, you can find me parked in front of my laptop donning bike shorts like the below from Amazon’s Core 10 collection and a sports bra similar to this one from Year of Ours. Accessories like Bala’s 1lb arm and ankle weights or a chic towel to wipe off well-earned sweat are just a few of some unexpected additions I’ve come to rely on during my journey of at-home workouts. Almost as satisfying than feeling that burn? The fact that you can find all of this stuff on Amazon. Get motivated with these 13 fitness essentials, below.
