Take Your Next Sweat Sesh Outside with the Best Outdoor Workout Equipment
Summer weather means our quarantine gym (aka our home) is getting a little more spacious. As in, we’re moving our sweat sessions to the outdoor space. And no, you don’t have to be a runner to take your workout to the backyard, front yard or the small patch of grass next to your apartment. All you need are a few pieces of fitness equipment made for the sunshine-filled days ahead. Here are ten best workout gear to scoop up (before they sell out).
2. Speedo 3-Piece Aquatic Fitness Training Set
Lucky enough to be quarantining by a pool? Next time you go for a dip, grab these water aerobics mainstays, for a new kind of resistance training.
3. Everlast Powercore Nevatear Heavy Bag
Yes, you can hang this bag in the basement, but it’s so much more fun (and better for your mental health) to throw punches outside in the fresh air.
4. Zetrablade Inline Skates
Remind us why we ever stopped roller blading? Invest in a pair of inline skates and get a little street hockey match going. Or just cruise around the neighborhood to switch up your normal walking route.
5. B Yoga B Mat Strong
Take your morning Pilates class out into the sunshine for the added mood-boosting benefits of vitamin D. This extra-strong, six mm thick mat is all the cushion you need on hard pavement.
6. FILA Conditioning Rope
There’s a reason battle ropes are a favorite among top athletes: they get your heart rate pumping and strengthen your whole body at the same time. Test your endurance and get in your HIIT workout with timed speed intervals.
7. Aduro Sport Store Adurance Weighted Vest
Turn any ordinary task into a sweat-breaking workout with a weighted vest. This one adds ten extra pounds to your body to rev up everything from a morning walk to pushups and lunges.
8. Gaiam Essentials Step Deck
Jumping around upstairs while someone’s on a Zoom call downstairs isn’t ideal. So take this extremely portable step outside for a quick cardio and strength circuit where you can go all-out, without interrupting anyone’s workday.
9. Sporzon! Rubber Encased Hex Dumbbell
Sure, you can use these dumbbells inside, too, but the rubber encasing makes them especially outdoor-friendly.
10. Gaiam Essentials Ab Wheel
Rolling in and out with an ab wheel is sure to get you a six pack before quarantine is over. We love that this one comes with a cushiony mat to prevent scraping up your knees while getting your sweat on in the driveway.
