Gym memberships are too expensive, not everyone is super comfortable getting their sweat on in public and who has the time to exercise anyway? We’ve heard every excuse, friends. But now that streaming services and YouTube channels are offering all kinds of online fitness classes like yoga, pilates, HIIT and dance cardio, getting in shape at home has never been more feasible (sorry). You also don’t need an array of fancy equipment to do so, either. For example, if you prefer to work with just your body weight, all you really need is a set of resistance bands to improve your strength. 

Resistance bands are essentially life-size bands made of elastic materials (usually latex) used for strength training, physical therapy, correcting mobility issues, core activation, weight loss, etc. And unlike dumbbell racks and stationary bikes that take up a ton of space, resistance bands are compact and fit neatly in a desk drawer. You can even pack them in your suitcase if you’re someone who actually works out on vacation (weird, but OK). So to upgrade your home gym without breaking the bank or taking over your exercise space, check out some of the best resistance bands on the market below.
