A fitness-space makeover can be motivating. Four fun items to add to your go-tos:

Miss boxing or kickboxing classes?This setup can handle your most forceful jabs and will fit in a corner or a closet when not in use. ($80, protocoldesign.com)
2 | PREVENTION FLAT FOLDABLE WEIGHT BENCH
A sturdy weight bench is ideal for strength training as well as seated exercises.This one will fit in a home of almost any size because it folds for easy storage, and it features sweatresistant cushions that are easy to clean.
3 | EXERCISE DICE
It’s like having your own personal trainer, except on demand—and it’s a little more fun!These foam dice have exercises (think jumping jacks, crunches, squats) and a time (30 seconds, 90 seconds, etc.) on each side. Crank up some tunes, give them a roll, and do whatever they direct.
4 | INTERLOCKING FITNESS MATS
These mats fit together like puzzle pieces and can help prevent you from sweating all over the carpet or scuffing the floor.The nonslip surface can be wiped down after each use.
