A lot of pilates classes these days require you to head to a boutique studio to get access to full-body reformers or for you to shell out big on your own.

But you actually don’t need an expensive reformer or all of the extra equipment that you’d find at a studio to get a great pilates workout right at home. Pilates is all about concentrated, low-impact movement, after all.

When you bring home the Viajero Pilates Bar Kit, you can get going right away. This $30 kit comes with three smaller sections of a padded bar that you twist together to form one long bar and two latex resistance bands. Each band can stretch to six times its length, so you don’t need to worry about them snapping.

This bar, while compact, can give you a total body workout and is very customizable. And thanks to the latex bands, you can easily twist the bar to shorten the bands and switch up the tension.

With this bar, you can work every muscle from your biceps to your glutes to your core. After your workout, the bar is easy to collapse down and stow away in its travel bag.

The Viajero Pilates Bar Kit has earned 4.4 out of 5 stars, over 1,400 ratings and plenty of glowing reviews.

One happy customer called the bar “convenient and effective.” They went on to share, “I am really enjoying this Pilates Bar… No need to adjust buckles and straps like I’ve seen on other similar products. It comes with instructions and a card telling you how to get some free bonuses, including a PDF workout guide and a link to a YouTube workout video!”

Another reviewer said, “This is an amazing piece of equipment for home workouts. I love how you can adjust the resistance to give you the perfect workout… I am very impressed with the quality of the grips. It is easy to use and gives you a great workout!”

While some reviewers said there was a learning curve to twisting the bar and getting the bands to lay properly to increase the tension, most were able to make it work for them.

You can snag the Viajero Pilates Bar Kit on Amazon now for just under $30 and start building out your home gym.
