10 Best Pieces of Exercise Equipment for Mums

Hey mums, when was the last time you sweated your butt off at the gym?

A week ago? A month ago? Can’t remember? Hey, don’t feel bad. Motherhood is crazy, so crazy that it’s totally understandable that you don’t have time to brush your hair, much less actually set foot in a gym. But don’t worry; you don’t need to go to the gym to stay fit! We recommend having even just the simplest equipment at home for your comfort. And because SAHM always has your best interest in mind, we listed some of the best exercise equipment for mums!

1. The Treadmill

If you want to run but don’t have the time or energy to get yourself out of the house (not to mention deciding whether to leave your kids or take them with you!), the treadmill is your best friend. This is also perfect if you just want to walk and collect your thoughts.

Con’s of a Treadmill:

It gets boring real fast!

2. A Punching Bag

Oh so you want to feel badass, huh? Why don’t you get a sexy piece of punching bag, build muscles, trim fat, look sexy, and release stress? Oh yeah, nobody’s going to mess with you now!

3. Skipping Rope

Every household needs a decent skipping rope. It’s fun, it’s easy (okay maybe not so easy), and it’s perfect for toning your legs, arms, and torso. (You may or may not sing skipping rope rhymes while working out.)

4. Exercise Bike

For fans of biking, this is the perfect alternative for those days you think you need to get your butt off the couch but can’t leave the house. This is also perfect for mums who want to work their legs out but don’t know how to ride a bike!

5. Trampoline

Oh my goodness, who doesn’t want their own trampoline? I bet you’ll be jumping on that toy every single day. Bonus: working out will double as a bonding activity with the whole family!

6. Elliptical Trainer

For mums who want a more advanced form of working out, it’s great to invest in your own elliptical trainer. You’ll be seeing a fit and toned body in no time — just make sure you don’t commit these mistakes.

7. A Step

Great news for mums who don’t want to spend a penny on exercise equipment: you already have one — right inside your home. Oh yes, if you have a flight of stairs, take advantage of it. Run up, run down!

8. A Fitness Ball

A fitness ball is perfect for any kind of mum, especially work-at-home mums who need to face a computer all day. Instead of sitting on an ordinary office chair, sit on an exercise ball to work out while working!

9. Suspension Training

For those who want to strengthen their core muscles and bust away the “weak” mummy tummy, resistance training via suspension training is perfect. However, before doing it at home, please be trained by a professional trainer first!

10. Pedometer

And finally, for mums who think nothing beats running outside (or walking or jogging) as the best form of exercise, the pedometer is simply a must-have! You may also use your phone and download a pedometer app. Have fun!

What is your favourite exercise equipment?
