5 home gym essentials I can’t live without

I’ve been a regular gym rat for roughly two decades, but a lot changed last year when, thanks to Covid, I could no longer visit my local fitness center. As the whole planet temporarily grinded to a halt, I began searching for the best workout equipment to help maintain my weight-training regimen under quarantine — and fit in my New York apartment. 

From adjustable weights to smart shoes to even earbuds, here are the five pieces of gym equipment that have become downright essential to my fitness journey.
