Whether you're just looking for the best iPhone stand to help you follow along with your trainer, or you need some additional gear to get the most out of your Fitness+ workouts, the above recommendations will help you out.

While Apple's Fitness+ equipment recommendations are at the premium end of the home fitness market, we've pitched things a little lower with this guide to help the average user find something that meets their needs without breaking the bank.

We'd recommend that you pick up a few of the essentials like a yoga mat and dumbbell set as these are useful in a bunch of Fitness+ workouts and don't require a great deal of investment. If you like Fitness+ and continue to subscribe, you could then pull the trigger on a pricier purchase like one of the best treadmills or best exercise bikes if you have the space at home for one. You might even be able to cancel your gym membership if you do.
