    Your workout routine has likely undergone huge changes this month due to the circuit breaker measures put in place for Covid-19. Thankfully, you can still stay active by doing home exercises, trying these online workout classes, or jogging around your neighbourhood.

    If you miss the gym or are getting tired of bodyweight workouts, you can make exercising from home more interesting and intense by incorporating basic equipment into your workout. Setting up a mini home gym doesn’t have to be expensive when you have value-for-money options at brands like Decathlon and Daiso.

    We have shortlisted the best fitness buys from Decathlon Singapore that are non-bulky and suitable for small spaces like your bedroom or a corner in your living room.

    Note that due to the influx of orders during this period, some items may be out of stock. Decathlon is currently providing time slot-based home deliveries so that you are able to receive your equipment in the coming days or weeks (as compared to within two hours previously).
