These devices can help keep (or get) you in shape while your gym is closed

In order to stop the spread of coronavirus, several states have closed gyms indefinitely. And without access to a gym, it feels impossible to stay (or get!) in shape.

However, not all hope is lost. There are plenty of at-home workout gadgets out there that can help you tone and trim — all from the comfort of your living room, bedroom or even kitchen.

Whether you have monetary restrictions or limited space, there are at-home workout tools available at every price point and in every size. Below, we’ve highlighted five of the best tools for slimming down and toning up.


No room for a treadmill? No problem! The $480+ WalkingPad is a compact treadmill that folds in half for easy storage. It was designed by a group of professors, sports scientists, engineers and product design experts “with the customer’s need in mind.”

The M-Pad Balance Trainer

Modern Movement’s $40 M-Pad Balance Trainer — which is essentially a surfboard for your living room — makes training your core easier than ever. It also makes working out fun: Using the M-Trac app, you can transform your workout into a live gaming experience that works your abs and keeps you entertained. Win-win!


Work and work out at the same time with Cubii, the ultimate under-desk elliptical. According to the official Cubii website, the compact machine burns up to 150 calories per hour. Prices start at just $249, making this machine as cost-effective as it is space-saving!

Tonal Mirror

This $2,995 workout mirror has everything you could ever want or need. It’s equipped with digital weights that can be adjusted to provide up to 200 pounds of resistance, and it offers upper body, lower body and total body workout programs.


The Laddermill ascender is essentially a ladder and a cardio climber combined. Since the machine focuses on vertical movement, it’s great for small spaces with limited room for workout equipment.
