But, if you're one of the many people currently struggling for home workout inspiration, you can see below fifteen of the best pieces of gym equipment from Isolation Fitness.

Basketball has always made for a great workout, with just an hour of the game building endurance, improving balance and coordination, building up muscle, and burning away calories and body fat. Designed with a high-performance iridescent composite cover giving it excellent surface grip and maximum softness, this ball is the future of basketball.
Abs, triceps, and biceps muscle trainers.

Well, these muscle trainers could help you achieve this dream - The electrode technology used stimulates and enhances the same muscles groups as if you were doing press-ups and stomach crunches... Without doing the press-ups and stomach crunches. Technically, it's cheating... But sometimes we need a little helping hand, don't we?
The Exercise Waist Trainer Belt.

All while being able to connect to a smartphone and track and record progress.
Muscle Squat Resistance Bands.

Triple Wheel Superbike Ab Roller.
