When juggling work and a jam-paced schedule, going to the gym isn’t always a possibility (or priority). But skipping the gym doesn’t mean you have to skip a workout. You can still break a sweat without leaving the house.

With the proper equipment and some empty space, you can re-create the entire workout experience in your living room. Below, 5 basic pieces that are effective, inexpensive, and will leave you sweatier than an hour on the elliptical. No excuses now!

1. Active Resistance Loop Band Set, P700
You don’t have to pump iron to sculpt your physique—a latex band works just as well. These stretchy mini-bands increase fat loss and firm up weak muscles, especially on your backside. One pack comes with 4 elastic loops in varying resistance levels, so you can modify your exercises while working your way up to a sky-high derriere.

2. Manly Power Bands (150”), P593
Resistance mini-bands might be one thing. But long, stringy, latex bands are a whole other story—one that brings about different results. These lengthy elastics help isolate and strengthen the core, as well as the arms. But the “power” of these bands don’t end there: you may also use it to deepen your stretches!

3. Perfect Fitness Perfect Ab-Strap, P1,899
Crunches aren’t the only way to achieve a six-pack. This hanging contraption can help sculpt your abs, too. It suspends you in the air to perform exercises that will tighten your midsection, while simultaneously building up your arms and shoulders. Just take note, newbies: you may have to work your way up to the workouts. But if you really want a Hadid-worthy tummy, you have to put in the work!

4. Harbinger Power Speed Rope, P899
Jump ropes may be something we associate with little kids, but do not be mistaken: they make for an intense workout! Just 10 minutes of jumping rope can melt off just as much fat as a 30-minute run—which is perfect for people on a crunch. This version has cushy handles and can adjust to any height. Plus, it’s super lightweight, so you can take it with you anywhere.

It pinpoints specific muscles to effectively break up and ease tight tissue. Use it for your hands, feet, or wherever you’re hurting. After all your hard work, it’s about time to show your body some love!
