Pedaling for hours on a stationary bike, no matter how many Netflix shows you watch or spin classes you take, is frankly boring compared to cycling in the real world. The new Bowflex VeloCore Bike brings back a little of that excitement you get when biking on tarmac by letting you lean up to the left or right while exercising. The bike, which can also be locked upright, comes with the option of a 16- or 21-inch touchscreen, 100 resistance levels, 3 lb dumbbells, Bluetooth heart rate armband, and optional JRNY fitness class membership.

24. YBell Neo
Kettle bells have supplanted traditional dumbbells for a lot of people because of their versatility, but now the new YBell Neo may just knock the popular swingers off their perch. These reimagined ‘bells offer the best of a few workout worlds: a central grip for regular moves like curls and kickbacks, three outer grips that give you the dynamic action that tossing around a kettle bell offers, plus lets you use them in a two-handed cradle like with a medicine ball or a strain-free pushup stand. They range from 10 lbs to 27 lbs, with heavier weights coming soon.

25. Bear Blocks
Pushup stands are great for relieving the wrist pressure that lots of reps can bring, but they aren’t as cleverly designed as Bear Blocks. These aircraft-aluminum constructed supports force the hand to arch down in a slight, 25-degree angle that allows for a more comfortable position, whether just sticking to pushups, or getting sweaty while running through moves like mountain climbers, burpees, or planks. The hard, wide surface also more evenly distribute pressure on the palms and the soft tissue between the thumb and index finger.
