Fitness Tip of the Day: Small Equipment Can Lead to Big Results

Reach your fitness goals with a few small pieces of at-home equipment

You do not need multiple pieces of machinery or hundreds of pounds of dumbbells and plates in order to lose weight and get in shape. 

Although those types of things can be quite helpful to inducing major muscle growth, many of us can get the results we want with smaller equipment.

Resistance bands, 5 to 15 pound dumbbells, a 20 to 25 pound kettlebell, a stability ball, a mat, and a platform can make up an effective small at-home gym that can fit in the corner of any room. With this equipment you can work any part of your body; plus, don’t forget to use your own bodyweight as well. 

Keep your workouts at a high intensity, don’t be afraid to push yourself almost to failure (don’t hurt yourself though) and stay active every day and you can achieve big results with a small amount of equipment!
