Relying on a gym to get your sweat on is sooo 2019, and if the last year has taught us anything, it’s that we can literally do everything at home — work, work out, have meetings and teach our kids (well, not really). All you need is the right gear.
These home-based equipment options are some of our faves for 2021. Stock up and you’ll be the homebody with a hot body!
