Over the past few months, some of us have mastered the art of the at-home workout. Whether that be relying on the videos emailed from your gym, or googling the best recommended on Tik Tok, you’re trying to keep yourself moving. If the gym never really was your thing, now may be the time to look at a few workout accessories that are the perfect motivation to get active. The best part is, these accessories fit in with daily life, sans the need to become a gym rat. Instead, you get to focus on looking and feeling good on your own time.



Before you ask, no these are not the hottest new accessory about to walk the Fall 2020 runway— but hey, they could be. Bala bangles are your new best friend, whether you are adding these to your HIT workouts, or just wearing them around the house to add a bit more resistance to everyday chores — look at that, you can burn calories while you sip your favorite summer cocktail on the patio.
