7 Cheap Kmart Products That Beat Paying for a Gym Membership

Let’s be honest, the cost of living is too high right now, which means certain things in our lives are starting to feel too expensive to justify. For some, that includes a gym membership. The good news is that not every type of exercise has to be super costly, and thanks to some affordable fitness products at Kmart, it’s actually relatively easy to stay active and motivated at home.

Here are some of our favourite Kmart fitness products right now.

Sit ups are an excellent core workout, but sometimes your living room just doesn’t have anything to grip onto that will help you fully extend that sit up. A $10 sit up bar like this one gives you that missing anchor, providing a counterweight to help you get the full range of your exercise.

Getting a good muscle workout doesn’t have to involve massive weights and machines at the gym. That’s where resistance bands come in. These stretchy bands use oppositional force to provide weight for your muscles to strain against, helping to build your strength and provide a solid home work out. The best part is you can use your own bodyweight as an anchor for the bands to attach to, making them super space and cost efficient.
