Cool thing is you can keep training without your gym or studio! Starting Saturday March 28th. I have LIVE online small group sessions via Zoom!
However you’re staying fit- you need the most efficient tools to keep you strong and healthy. Below, I list everything you need to stay in shape with limited space.
Everything is based on efficiency and minimal space. You will regret not having this stuff, trust me.
First we start with your set up. CLICK here for how-to video to best set up your computer, tablet or ipad. (You want a large screen)
Last resort is your phone- Hard to follow along, but it’ll work. Scroll down for the best holders Then, the fun stuff, the fitness gear!
1.Smart Phone Mount + Tripod If you’re gonna work with any coach or take any class, it’s online. Get a grip mount for your phone ASAP, this way you can go anywhere – park, backyard, living room. This on is lightweight and super versatile.
Small Bendy Tripod with phone mount- Works great anywhere and has super adjustable phone mount.
Kettlebells – Hands down, the #1 tool you need at home.The magic’s in the bell, literally! It all comes down to architecture of the weight.
Because they are round, kettlebells work your larger, deeper muscles. This not only keeps your joints safe, it also torches calories! Here are the weights that’ll keep you doing awesome at home.
Wait, wait! Read below first before ordering weights online:
Do not order non round/ adjustable And ONLY go for powder coated or e- coated.
You want iron only – no rubber bottoms or vinyl coated. If it’s not iron all the way around & powder or e-coated, your grip will suck – which means you don’t get as strong as fast. Also the rubber bottoms and different coatings will mess up your form and floors.
The adjustable bells are bad because they change the shape of the bell. This changes the results you get. Rather than lean, sculpted and streamlined – you will get wider in the shoulders, butt and risk a lot of injuries in your joints. NEVER use non round adjustable bells.
Get these bells to have at home (NOTE up to 18 pounds are in lbs- beyond that is all Kg) 1 Kg = 2.204 lbs ( 10 kg bell = 22 lbs)
- Most Basic Set up for Beginner = One 18 lb Bell, One 12 Kg Bell, One 16 Kg Bell
Below is the best set up for anyone who’s doing bells at home for more than 3 weeks.
