No matter where you are in your fitness and health journey, life during COVID-19 probably looks very different. Maybe you used to hit spin, boxing, and Pilates weekly and need a substitute for your beloved classes, or maybe you're using social distancing as an opportunity to try yoga or long-distance running for the first time. But with gyms and studios closed or at limited capacity across the country, it can be tough to find the equipment you need to optimize your workout and form a new routine that's isolation-friendly.

Fear not: The tools you're looking for (or don't even realize you need) can be delivered right to your door to help you create your own mini workout studio, even if your space is limited. When it comes to building your own personal fitness oasis, start by thinking about your goals, then go from there. Maybe you want to tone up a bit, get into yoga, or just blow off some election-induced steam. Then, pick out some pieces of equipment that'll help you reach those goals by targeting the muscles you want to flex, or ushering you towards the mental headspace you want to reach. And don't forget the accessories that'll amp up any workout—think wrist weights, a stretching strap, or a sweet new mat. Added bonus: some of them are cute enough to leave out after your sweat sesh has ended. Here, find the endorphin-spiking, form-fixing, muscle-quivering accessories that'll keep you on track and hitting new goals.

For Toning
Wrist and Ankle Weights
Bala bandier.com

To take any sweat sesh up a notch, slide on these Shark Tank-born bangles for extra resistance. The classic option only weigh a pound each, but don't underestimate them—they add more intensity than you think, can be used on both your wrists and ankles, and they're cute as hell, too. I'd move fast, though—they constantly sell out.

Ab Wheel

Bored of crunches? Kneel down, grip the handles of the wheel, then use your core to roll your body out flat and then back to your starting position. You'll be crazy sore in the morning, but that's the point, right?
