Let’s get physical!
It happens like clockwork: At the beginning of the new year, we have all these grandiose plans for shifting our workout routine to the next gear. (Run that big race? Work out five times a week? Work out, period? We’ve seen them all.) But, no matter how good our intentions are, the likelihood of actually achieving our goals are notoriously slim. (Don’t take it personally, studies suggest that up to 91 percent of people will fumble our resolutions. It‘s not you, it’s most of us.) If you want to make the fitness odds a little more in your favor, picking up some new equipment can give you the motivation to keep going.
The good news? Thanks to a host of finds Walmart’s stealth fitness section, investing in wellness doesn’t have to set you back a small fortune. Right now, the mega-retailer has a bunch of excellent rates on weights, home gym equipment, and so much more. In fact, you can find some excellent exercise essentials for $30 or less.
If you’re not sure where to start—because looking for budget-friendly finds can feel like a full-time job—we did the legwork for you. Check out our favorite fitness gear for $30 or less. All you need to do is add your favorites to your cart and keep up those resolutions. You got this!
If you’re starting a workout routine from scratch, Walmart’s secret sale is perfect for picking up the basics. Topping our list is this pair of five-pound dumbbells, which are coated in a tough neoprene for the perfect grip.

Calling all aspiring yogis: You can’t become a zen master without a great mat. Made with a durable foam, this option has a non-slip grip that will help you seamlessly move from upward to downward dog.
Ready to add some oomph to your strength training? Grab this kettlebell from Athletic Works for under $20. With a flat, ergonomic handle, this pick will make dead lifts and weighted squats a breeze.
Another yoga essential you can grab on the cheap? These non-slip blocks from RDX, which can give you plenty support as you try new poses.
With back-to-back meetings and a never-ending to do list, it can seem virtually impossible to squeeze a workout into the workday. But, thanks to this discreet stationary bike, you can put the pedal to the metal during your Zoom calls. (Trust us, your colleagues will have no idea.)
A pilates class is all fun until you’re slipping and sliding on your reformer mid-class. (Don’t worry, it’s happened to all of us at some point!) Fortunately, these toeless socks have grips on the bottom so you can keep your cool and your position.
The secret to turning your workouts into results is to consistently add some extra challenge to your routine. And, what better way to do that than with resistance bands? As a set that ranges from 10-pound to 50-pound bands, this pick from Xgear will help you take your workout to the next level time and time again.
