25 Best Fitness Gears and Accessories to Buy

Fitness gears and accessories can aid you in your exercise regime in more ways than one. Although they might not be completely necessary, they are helpful, especially if you want to shave off some strain that naturally comes from a high-intensity workout. 

This article will give you a complete fitness gears and accessories buying guide.  We will take a look at some of the categories of gears and accessories you can buy and what to look out for when buying them.

To wrap it all off, we have a review of 25 of the best fitness gears and accessories you can buy right now.

Before we start, we would like to clarify one thing. Some of the items on this list may not be complete necessities.

Having said that, though, all the items do help you with your exercise routine in some capacity. Whether you work out at home or a gym, you are sure to find some use for these gears.

Types of Fitness Gears and Accessories

Tech Gadgets

Since a lot of users are tech-heads, it is natural that they would want to start with some fitness tech gears. Tech gears for fitness will include trackers, headphones, and even smartwatches. These gears help you track your workouts. You can then plan your workout routine from said data.

One thing we cannot live without is headphones. Yes, headphones are completely optional when working out. But there is just something motivating about having your favorite jam playing in your ears while running or lifting weights. That is why wireless headphones are at the top.

Resistance Training Gears

Resistance training has a lot of benefits. It can strengthen your muscle and can be used as a form of rehabilitation as well.

Resistance training accessories include all kinds of straps and bands that train your muscle through resistance. These gears are primarily elastic to help you train.

When shopping for resistance bands, it is best to keep it simple. Go for a high-quality one that will not tear or break under pressure. You might also want to get different types of resistance bands.

The variety of bands at your disposal will help with different types of workouts. Get one that has handles - it makes it easier to grip them. As you get more experienced, you can go for ones with loops or double-8 bands.

Rollers

Rollers can provide muscle pain relief. They can also help with your range of motion, which is why it is mostly used as a part of yoga sessions. You can even find dedicated rollers you can use on your arms, waist, hips, and neck for muscle pain relief.

When buying rollers, there are some things to keep in mind:

Density

Density refers to how soft or firm the roller is. Since most rollers are made from foam, you can buy ones with either soft, standard, or firm density.

Soft rollers offer you more comfort at the expense of a deep massage. If you have sensitive muscle, a soft roller should be the way to go.

Standard and firm rollers give you a deeper massage. Standard rollers hit the sweet spot of providing some cushioning but also having some firmness to provide a deep massage.

If you train intensely and have tight muscles, you might want to go with a firm roller. They can go deep into the muscles and break up constricted fascia.

Size

Most people will probably for the standard roller size. They are large and can be around 36 inches in length. These are some of the most versatile rollers, albeit with some downsides. Primarily, they are not portable.

You can use this for massaging large muscle groups like quads and backs. For traveling, you can get one that is smaller in size or diameter. They are portable, and you can use them to target precise muscle groups that are smaller.

For senior citizens, a small diameter roller is perfect. Even if you need more balance for rehabilitation training, small diameter rollers can come in handy.

Shape

Rollers can come in different shapes as well. Most rollers come in plain cylindrical shapes. However, you can find ones with small bumps on them. They are great if you want a deep and more targeted massage. They can be used to reduce muscle soreness as well.

Durability

The durability of the rollers will depend on the type of foam used. There are two categories: open-cell form and closed-cell foam.

If you are on a budget, you can pick up an open-cell roller for a very little price. They are not the most durable, though. If you want better durability, we recommend going with a closed-cell variant. 

Closed-cell variants like the EPP and EVA foam ones offer the best of both worlds. EPP rollers, in particular, are not that expensive compared to open-cell rollers but offer higher durability.

For the ultimate durability, you can go with EVA foam. They are the highest quality of foam rollers that you can find on the market. Although more expensive, the professional-grade quality makes up for the price.

Yoga Sets

Yoga sets, and especially yoga mats, are more common when it comes to fitness gears and accessories. Many do yoga for higher flexibility, increased strength, weight loss, and stress management.

If you are a beginner, you can buy a yoga set that will have all the necessary components. You will get a mat, tension rope, and also a yoga ball in most yoga sets. Or you can buy these individually if there are particular products you like.

Yoga Mats

Yoga mats are made to provide grip and some cushioning when performing yoga poses. High-intensity yoga can cause you to work up quite a lot of sweat. So, having a non-slip surface is important here.

Thickness

Thickness is important when buying yoga mats. The thicker they are, the better comfort and cushioning you get. There are diminishing returns, though. You do not want a very thick mat. It makes them unwieldy and hard to carry if you are taking your mat to a studio.

Thin mats are good for practicing balance, however. They keep you closer to the ground. So, if you think you have poor balance and need some extra practice, you can also shoot for a thin yoga mat.

Material and Texture

The material of the mat will dictate how durable or eco-friendly it is. Vinyl mats are the most durable while rubber mats with cotton and jute are eco-friendlier.

Texture helps you with the grip too. People who sweat a lot can go with a grippy textured mat to keep them from slipping. 

Pull-up Bars

Compound exercises like pull-ups are some of the best exercises for strength training. For such exercises, you can get a pull-up bar. They are easy to set up and can be attached to your door.

Pull-ups offer a lot of health benefits too. First and foremost, they are great for back muscle training. They improve your grip and also your biceps. When buying pull-up bars, make sure to get a sturdy one. Bars with comfortable grips will ensure that you do not hurt your hands while exercising.

Water Bottles

Water bottles, of course, do not help you directly with training. But they are quite important. You will lose a lot of water during intense workouts. It is important to keep yourself hydrated. Having a water bottle will just make it convenient to stay hydrated.

Get a reusable water bottle. You can carry it in your gym bag when you are out on a hike/run. We have reviewed some great quality bottles with durable materials and stylish designs that you can check out.

Gym Bags

Lastly, invest in a gym bag. Gym bags will help you keep things organized and make it very easy to carry your clothes, fitness gears, and accessories around. You can take all the accessories you need with you to the gym.
