As shutdown continues to impact local gyms, many people are seeking alternative solutions to breaking a sweat, staying fit and alleviating stress.

While some people have taken to running and exercising outdoors other have invested in equipment to create their own home gym. The problem? Fitness equipment can be very expensive and take up plenty of space. If you’re an apartment dweller or living in tight quarters with a family or roommates, it can be pretty difficult to work a Peloton machine into your home decor. Luckily, there are portable gyms that will give you the level of workout you need before fitting discreetly in a closet or under a bed.

Enter: BodyBoss 2.0 System

What it is

If you dally in Instagram fitness circles, you’ve probably seen an ad for BodyBoss products. BodyBoss 2.0 is the “world’s first portable gym” and a complete resistance training system that allows you to perform hundreds of exercises and target select muscle groups for an efficient at-home workout. The complete system allows you to perform squats, lunges, shoulder presses, bicep curls, thrusters, mountain climbers and more using resistance bands that can provide up to 80lbs of resistance.

Weighing only 15 lbs in total, the BodyBoss 2.0 was designed specifically for people who want to get more exercise, but don’t feel like they have the time or resources to commit to a gym membership. Now, you can avoid the gym altogether and workout in your bedroom, kitchen or in front of the TV.

And while the portable gym usually retails for $229, it’s on sale, today only, for just $130, making it a perfect time to snag one.

What people are saying

The portable gym system boasts more than 500 five-star reviews from customers who enjoy feeling the burn from the comfort of their own home.

“There are so many times that I want to get in a workout at home, but don't have the means to,” one shopper shared. “Gym equipment isn't cheap, but the BodyBoss made this possible. Early morning workouts have become easier because I don't have to worry about putting on make-up and driving to the gym which takes plenty of extra time in itself. I can wake up and already be at the gym and get my workout done right away. I also love that I am able to take this with me so easily. This makes vacationing and going places easier. I really like that I am able to do so many exercises with the BodyBoss because I can literally target everything that I need to. I can't wait to discover even more things to do with my BodyBoss!”

“Works great! I've had it for a little over a year and it's been holding up great,” another added. “Resistance bands are well made and hold up well and haven't shown any signs of wear and tear. Nice design and really easy to get started!”

Verdict

There’s nothing that’s going to beat the intensity of a workout lead by a professional trainer, however, the BodyBoss comes with instructional videos and guides to help get you started. If you’re missing the gym life and looking to mix things up until it’s safe to get back into your regular routine - or you’re constantly on the go and can’t commit to a gym membership, the BodyBoss 2.0 System might be a helpful solution to stay active.
