I'm a personal trainer & help thousands get fit – my top Amazon buys to stay in shape | The Sun

IT can be hard enough to find the motivation to do a workout at the best of times, let alone if you have to muster the energy to leave the house and get to the gym.

We all know it's worth it, and you'll always feel great after a gym session or exercise class, but home workouts have also become increasingly popular.

And if you know what equipment to invest in, getting fit from the comfort of your own home can be a cheaper, and quicker, alternative.

Personal trainer Courtney Black – who has her own fitness app – says: "Home workouts are an amazing way to stay in shape without spending money on a gym membership and wasting time on the commute.

"I absolutely live by home workouts, they have completely changed my life.

"The flexibility and convenience of getting up, getting it done around my busy schedule is unbeatable and amazing for building a consistent and sustainable habit.

Adjustable dumbbells are even more effective as you can add ordecrease weight depending on the exercise.

I recommend this set of adjustable weights from Amazon, which are £27.99 for a pair.

They're small, and amazing for a home workout or popping in your suitcase when you go on holiday and don't want to stop working out completely.

Ankle weights

These are amazing to ramp up the intensity of your usual workout or to pop on while walking to build and sculpt your leg muscles.

This is brilliant for improved bone health and increasing lean muscle mass.

These 1.5kg ankle weights are available from my website, and cost £7.

I can’t live without my two litre bottle.

It’s amazing for keeping you on track and hydrated with motivational messages throughout the day.

Making sure you stretch and roll between workouts is essential to your progress.
