More than ever, especially with many gyms and fitness studios temporarily closed, people are after ways to turn a part of their home into a home gym. If you’re looking to add to your set of workout tools, these are some of the places to browse.
For affordable exercise equipment, outfits and more, there’s no place like Decathlon. It’s got over 5,000 products across 60 sports, from running and HIIT to yoga, hiking, combat sports, swimming, and of course, home gym equipment. It’s also got 11 outlets across the island, with five Experience Stores where you can shop the full range of products.
Chalk up $60 and you’ll get free delivery, and items are delivered in one to two days. But if you can’t wait to get started, there’s a two-hour delivery service with a minimum spend of $120, too (not for bulky equipment).
Owned by a personal fitness trainer, Home Fitness has everything from basic tools like medicine balls and dumbells to multi-functional systems for the ultimate home gym.
On a budget? It’s even got a Pre-Owned section where you’ll get to snag refurbished fitness equipment at a steal. Or you can rent bulkier equipment like treadmills and elliptical machines for a minimum of two weeks.
Headed by a group of athletes, you can be sure of getting your fitness needs met – the company also supplies schools, sports clubs the military, and firefighters.
Shop various equipment, including step boards, plyometric boxes, pull-up bars and even rock climbing walls to build an effective exercise space at home.

Yoga mats aren’t just for doing yoga. They’re handy for cushioning your back when you’re crunching those abs, keep you from sliding when you’re building up your cardio with mountain climbers, and protect your elbows and knees when you’re in a plank position.
But just because it’s functional doesn’t mean it’ll have to stick out in your home like a sore thumb. Homegrown company Baaba.co has some of the prettiest mats that’ll fit in with your home decor (or even double as a carpet). Plus, they’re designed bigger so you won’t find it a struggle to keep your body within the mat.
