Exercise Swap

You don’t need a gym membership to get a great workout. Here are some ideas for common household items that can be swapped into any workout! Instead of traditional workout equipment, try these alternatives.

  • Weights/kettlebells. Create your own weights using water bottles, canned goods, milk jugs, laundry detergent jugs, or fill a reusable grocery bag with anything heavy! 
  • Weight bench. Use a chair, firm couch, low sturdy tables, ottoman, or stairs to use in place of a weight bench. 
  • Sliders. Use anything soft or without too much grip, such as towels, fuzzy socks, paper plates, or pillows. 
  • Yoga mat. Create your own soft surface using a bath towel or blankets. 
  • Balance disk. You can do a balance disk exercise routine using a couch, bed, or firm pillow. 
  • Resistance bands. Try using a robe tie, old t-shirt, or bungee cord.
