2. Brazyn Morph Foam Roller
If you want to experience the benefits of foam rolling anywhere around the house, then the Brazyn Morph Foam Roller is a great choice. Used by many sports teams as well as the U.S. military, this collapsible foam roller is dubbed the most portable and storable foam rollers in the world.

The Morph Foam Roller is available in “Alpha” (deep tissue) and “Bravo” (traditional) variants.

5. MoonRun Connect
The MoonRun Connect is an excellent option for those who want to do full-body cardio workouts without having to leave home and/or increase cardio capacity without the risk of injuries associated with overuse. This virtual cardio trainer not only allows for wireless connection to running apps, but is also portable, not requiring any set space to use.
Developed by a physical therapist, it can serve as a good alternative to treadmill running for the following reasons:
- Allows for high-intensity low impact training by physically uplifting your body that only intensifies you a push harder for good high-intensity, low-impact training.
- Versatile on the joints, sharing and balancing body load and impact to avoid repetitive pounding that is common in most treadmills.
- Lets you do what any running instructor would recommend: leaning and pushing your body forward using your pelvis.
- Balance the effect of training throughout your body (and not your lower limbs only) by using armbands combined with spinning.
Each set comes with a lightweight and durable bar, washable soft body cushions for maximum comfort and performance, a triple safety door anchor that doubles as a pole anchor and medium and arm resistance sets, in addition to a smart sensor and the free MoonRun mobile app.
