As local and state shutdowns continue 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, others 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. But 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.

And while the portable gym usually retails for $200, it’s on sale—today only—for $150, making it a perfect time to snag one. But act fast and shop now, this sale ends at midnight.

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 80 pounds of resistance.

Weighing only 15 pounds 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.

What shoppers are saying

The portable gym system boasts a perfect five-star rating from more than 1,600 five-star reviewers who enjoy feeling the burn from the comfort of their own home.

“I have already completed many workouts using this product. I love the versatility of it. I can work all of my muscle groups and adjust resistance to work for my strength. I originally bought it because of the squat bar! I wanted to be able to do squats at home,” shared a delighted Amazon shopper. “The grips on the product are comfortable. It comes with many accessories as well....I would 100 percent recommend this to anyone looking to work out at home and doesn't want to spend a fortune or is limited on space.”

“I keep it in my bedroom and slide it under the bed after using it,” wrote a satisfied five-star reviewer. “Love the fact that I can wake up and get a few exercises done before heading to work, in about five minutes. I'll typically pull it back out when I get home and do the same thing. A couple weeks ago threw it in the car and took it on a trip to use in the hotel room (just the bar, not the whole thing). Have only had it for a month but seems pretty durable and easy to configure for different types of exercise.”

Verdict

There’s nothing that’s going to beat the intensity of a pro trainer-led workout, 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—especially that it’s on sale for nearly 30 percent off, as part of Amazon’s ‘Deal of the Day.’
