Ten Fitness Products Under 100 Dollars
I haven’t been a gym member for over five years and haven’t regretted it once. Not only do I feel that many gyms are scams, but I believe staying fit with just a few versatile pieces of fitness equipment is practical, efficient, and much more affordable.
Spending $600 to $1,200 per year on a gym membership you may only use a few times a week or less isn’t the smartest choice if you’re straight-up unemployed, underemployed, or between jobs. On the other hand, you could simply purchase everything you need to stay in-shape for a one-time cost of a hundred bucks or less and then use those workout items for years. Staying motivated and actually using equipment you purchase, however, is all up to you.
- Resistance & Pull-Up Band Set by Fitness Dreamer
Upon first glance, it’s tempting to underestimate these brightly-colored bands. That’s what I did until I realized how well they work. Now these simple bands are a key element to my fitness routine. The Fitness Dreamer resistance band set is one of the most versatile fitness products I’ve ever encountered. You can use them indoors, outdoors, and even while away on trips (they’re very compact). These bands are extremely lightweight and flexible, yet very durable. The blue band provides 175 lbs. of resistance, so virtually anyone at any fitness level can benefit from these simple bands.
Ideal for folks who lift heavy weights, this set of adjustable dumbbells eliminates the need to purchase an entire set of multiple free weights. With this adjustable dumbbell set, you can lift up to 200 lbs. and perform numerous body workouts. It comes with several cast iron plate weights, which you can easily add to the standard-sized bar for increased resistance. Going to the gym for strength training is now completely unnecessary with this compact, convenient, and affordable dumbbell set.
If you’re serious about getting in shape, but don’t quite know where to start, I highly recommend this home workout kit by Back2Life. It comes with a non-skid ab wheel, adjustable jump rope, set of non-skid push-up bars, simple-to-use body fat caliper, and motivational journal for tracking your meals and fitness progress. I personally love this kit because it’s extremely affordable (under $30) and perfect for beginners. You can create your own fat-burning circuit training routine and get a complete body workout at home or on-the-go
- Stability Ball with Resistance Bands by Superior Fitness
I love this stability ball kit because it allows you to tone your muscles and burn fat at the same time. Resistance bands are included in the kit and allow you to perform over 100 isolation exercises (included) with this ball. The balance ball itself is extremely durable and comes with a stability ring, which sits under the ball and keeps it in place. If you’re looking for core workout equipment for your home, I highly recommend this kit.
- The Helm Core Fitness Strength Training System
The Helm may be one of the greatest multi-muscle workout devices ever created. Not only is this piece of equipment extremely versatile, it’s remarkably durable and can even withstand over 700 lbs. Place the Helm on any size Swiss ball or the ground to achieve greater core strength, endurance, and mobility. It provides three different handle positions for performing push-ups, planks, and bench dips to work your entire upper body. I personally love the Helm because it’s designed for all fitness levels and requires zero assembly. Plus, the world’s best athletes helped design the Helm, so it’s definitely a quality piece of equipment.
Finding a quality aerobic platform is an essential if you’re into step aerobics or workouts that require stepping. I personally like this aerobic platform because it’s the same size and quality as the ones in health clubs, so you don’t have to worry about slipping or falling off it. Plus, it won’t scratch your floors, skid, or slide around. This platform is the perfect addition to many core, strength, and aerobic workouts. It’s also incredibly durable and will last for decades. No need to attend embarrassing group classes at the health clubs when you have this handy platform in your own.
- Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band
If you’re the kind of person who likes to monitor your calories and track your steps, look no further than the Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band. This stylish, yet comfortable, wristband is like having a little personal trainer with you throughout the day. For starters, it displays a red bar after you’ve been inactive for an hour, reminding you to get your ass moving. It also records calories you’ve burned throughout the day, monitors your sleep, and even assigns you a personal goal each morning based on your activity level. The Garmin Vivofit Fitness Band is also water resistant, so you can easily read your alerts and stats 24/7.

I like how the workouts are short, challenging, and effective. This workout program is suitable for all fitness levels.
