There’s nothing we love more at Women’s Health than a little friendly competition—even if it’s just with ourselves. And this year, for our annual Fitness Awards, we set the bar high: create the ultimate guide to the best exercise equipment to make your home gym feel sweet and complete. (Simple, right?)

Welp, after 12 months of testing and reviewing over a thousand different exercise machines, fitness tools, connected devices, activewear, gear, and virtual workout platforms, we feel truly confident that the 75 winners on this list will take your training up a notch (or several!). Please meet the next-gen of exercise equipment that’ll help you get #WHstrong…without leaving your house. (Peep the products featuring a lightning bolt logo for WH editors’ faves!) Suffice to say we are obsessed and know you will be too.
