10 Fitness Items You Can Get for Less Than $10 on Amazon

By , SparkPeople Blogger

When you think about working out, do you imagine yourself having to shell out hundreds of dollars a year on a gym membership or buying expensive equipment that you'll probably never use? While there certainly are benefits to belonging to a gym, or in owning home gym equipment, none of those things is necessary to get in shape and live a healthy lifestyle. In fact, there are plenty of items you can purchase for the price of a burger and fries that will last a lot longer and serve your health goals a heck of a lot better.

From light weights that travel well to a mini exercise ball that helps you target those tiny muscles, items that help you stay in shape can be just a 10 spot (or less) away.

Tribe Single Resistance Band (starting at $6.98):

With various resistance levels available, these bands allow you to pick the one that's best for your level of training. The bands consist of rubber tubes with a handle on each end and a door anchor so you can switch up the position of the tube for a variety of exercises—biceps curls, chest presses, squats, leg extensions, you name it. Your purchase of Tribe bands also comes with a free ebook that demonstrates a variety of resistance exercises you can do with your band.

ACCTREND Jump Rope ($9.99)

The jump rope is one piece of equipment everyone should have at home for a serious workout. It's easy to use for any level and can burn more calories than running alone, plus you can take it with you wherever you go. Jumping rope can also increase your leg and core strength while helping you increase your cardiovascular endurance. This jump rope comes with an adjustable cord that you can cut to fit your height exactly, and the lightweight handles help you easily control your speed.

Wacces Yoga Straps ($9.95)

Stretch before or after a workout with these multipurpose straps. Using straps to stretch increases your range of motion and the 10 fixed loops on these 78 inch-long straps can help you get deeper into a stretch as you progress toward your goals. The straps are made out of a durable cotton blend material that won't wear out and are wide enough to allow for adequate circulation during every stretch.

ProBody Pilates Mini Exercise Ball ($9.95)

Work on your core strength, flexibility and balance with this mini exercise ball. Using the mini ball in your workouts creates an unstable surface that forces you to engage your core to keep your balance, which will in turn improve your body alignment. With 4.4 stars and 690 reviews, you can be sure that this ball will be a trusty workout partner.

ProSource Ankle and Wrist Weights (starting at $9.99)

Strap these one-pound weights to your wrists or ankles for added resistance when walking, running or during any fitness routine where you want to increase your stamina, strength and cardio capacity. The neoprene weights fit comfortably around your wrists and ankles with an adjustable velcro strap.


Yes4All High-Density Foam Roller (starting at $8.62)

Foam rollers are having a moment. Great for massaging tired muscles and helping you recover from injury, it seems foam rollers are popping up in gyms around the country for athletes looking for smarter recovery strategies. While they are commonly used for myofascial release, they are also a great piece of inexpensive exercise equipment that can help you work your muscles in a challenging way. Foam rolling can also help to decrease risk of injury, reduce pain and stiffness, and improve your range of motion.

Elite Sportz Core Sliders ($10)

Use these double-sided sliders for a great core (or arm or leg) workout on most any surface. Simply place your hands or feet on the sliders during exercise for a high-impact workout that engages your core in nearly any position. These sliders are lightweight and packable so you'll be able to get in a good workout wherever your heart desires.

Gen-X Ab Wheel Roller ($9.99)

For a simple exercise with the ab wheel, start in a kneeling position with your hands on the handles and the ab wheel on the floor in front of you. Use your core to "row" the ab wheel away from you and then back in toward you, keeping your abs engaged and your back straight. Try for five to 10 reps to start and you'll feel the burn almost instantly. Six-pack abs, here you come!

Sportneer Pushup Handle Grips ($9.99)

Work your arms, chest, core and shoulders with these pushup handles. Holding on to the non-slip handles instead of placing your hands on the floor intensifies the classic exercise, engaging more core muscles with every rep. The light and portable handles reduce the pressure and strain on your wrists that you might typically feel when performing a pushup by distributing your bodyweight more evenly.

AmazonBasics Neoprene Dumbbells (starting at $8.49)

You can sculpt and strengthen your muscles just about anywhere with these lightweight and inexpensive dumbbells. They are covered in a soft neoprene material to keep your hands from slipping and designed with hexagonal ends to keep them from rolling away from you. They are also backed by a one-year warranty.

Great article Report

OK, as several others have said - don’t wear wrist or ankle weights while working out. Many other articles on SP have emphasized this. Otherwise, good info. Report
I have many of these items at home already. I would also recommend an AbMat. These provide great lumbar support when doing crunches and leg lifts. It works by respecting and providing integrity to the lumbar curve which helps with overall posture, core development and breathing. Report
thanks for the list! FYI: You can use (and re-use) paper plates as sliders, ankle and wrist weights are not good for the body and I have the amazon dumbbells and they're really good. Report
Maybe I should get a jump rope. Report
Interesting options. Report
I found out there is a Play It Again Sports in my area. I got some second hand equipment, but it worked great! Report
Just went to Amazon to buy the resistance bands and they are not under $10. Fyi. Report
Thank you for this list! Report
sweet!

Thanks for the information. Report
Wrist and ankle weights have their uses - walking and running are NOT it. Did Amazon write this article for you? Report
My physical therapist says never put weights on wrists or ankles, and Spark articles also say not to use them....so how much did they pay you? Report

great article Report
Surprised you promote the ankle weights when many of your articles clearly say not to use them. This makes me concerned about the validity of some of your articles. Which articles are we to believe. Report
Wow! Thank you! Report
Thanks, great! Report
Good article. Thanks! Report
Everything I've read said that ankle weights are a huge no-no as they change how one walks. Report
Great to know, Thanks! Report

Mostly good ideas but please, please, please don't "strap" on weights to ankles and/or wrists for "added resistance" during a walk or run. Doing so can throw your gait off and potentially cause injury. Report
More advertising Report
Nice! Report
Oh my I have some of these...how nice! Report
have at least half of them Report

Thank You.............. Report
Too bad my pictures were lost but I read it and those items are really easy and not expensive. Pat in Maine. Report
Have one of those stretch-out straps. Find a TRX (even the lower cost generic brands or DIY work well) better than the AB rollers. Paper plates on a non-carpeted flooring work well in place of the disks. Report
Looking for something small to reward myself. This was perfect timing. Thanks for sharing. Report
