Portable Workout Equipment for Easy Workouts

Updated on March 28, 2015

The Best Portable Workout Equipment Makes Working Out Fun and Easy

I like portable workout equipment that is easy to travel with, easy to move around my home, gives me variety, doesn't take up a lot of room, doesn't cost a lot, prevents boredom and is easy to move when our family moves. These items are some of my favorites for easy workouts at home that I own, use and I also love that I can easily put one or two of these pieces into luggage to take with me on trips.

I also realized that I like to do more of a circuit training workout where I move from one piece of equipment to the next for more variety and I find it's much more effective too instead of just using my treadmill. Here you'll find my favorite equipment that I love so much and is all under $30 so putting a gym together won't cost a lot of money. Check out the video samples of how to use the resistance bands and the over the door rope exercises for more tips and ideas to get started.

If you travel a lot, live in a small house or apartment and you're ready to set up a home gym, why not consider these portable workout equipment pieces for easy workouts. I also love that these small and lightweight pieces can be picked up and moved when I want to do my workout in the living room, office or back down to the basement. You can pack up your home gym quickly when you're ready to move too since portable equipment doesn't weigh much at all.

I always use an exercise mat instead of exercising directly on the floor - especially for traveling. I set up my home gym and always keep my floor mat ready for floor exercises. If you don't have a yoga mat yet, add it to your portable workout equipment today.
