14. Kettle bell

Working out at home is always the preferred way for time poor and budget conscious mums which is why we love any equipment that is not only inexpensive but easy to use at home. Adding a Kettle bell to some of your workouts will give you that extra help to build your muscle strength.

15. Epsom salts

After the workout comes the recovery, and something that is always helpful for recovery is an epsom salt bath. These salts help ease those tired muscles after a good workout. As an added bonus you can use your sore muscles needing a soak as an excuse to enjoy your bath and your alone time.

16. Phone/iPod armband

When you are working out it’s hard enough to stay motivated without adding in additional hassles like where are you going to put your iPod or phone? So getting an armband that fits your phone or iPod is the perfect way to get your working out whilst listening to your favourite workout music.

17. Suspension trainer system

As busy mums we know it’s hard to find the time, and money, to head to the gym which is why we love anything that helps us work out at home. A suspension trainer system is the perfect addition to any at home gym.

18. Hand weights

Adding some extra tension to any workout even just a brisk walk, hand weights are a great prospective present for any person hoping to get healthy and fit.
