With our new year goals and resolutions in full swing, the gyms are sure to be packed with people.

From dumbbells and yoga mats, to jump ropes and more, below we share our favorite at-home workout accessories for 2019. Best of all, every piece is under $50.


A basic component of any gym is dumbbells. You will need a variety of weights for working different parts of your body, too. The AmazonBasics Neoprene Dumbbell Set is a great option with an array of different sizes at under $50. They also feature an easy grip for holding. Their hexagon shape prevents the dumbbells from rolling away.

With the workout bar you can perform pull ups, push ups, crunches, chin ups and much more. Plus, with over 4,000 reviews, it’s rated 4/5 stars from Amazon customers.

Jump rope

One of the best ways to get your cardio in without a treadmill or elliptical is a jump rope. Plus, jump ropes are lightweight, easy to store away, and can be used for years to come. The Survival and Cross Jump Rope is an excellent option for just $10 and it’s highly rated, too. Its sleek design glides through the air making it comfortable for you to get as many reps in as possible. You can also adjust the rope to your liking with two sliding screws and collars that set the handles at a specific length on the cable.
