Being stuck at homes means if you’re a gym bunny you’re going to have to find an alternative way to break a sweat.
If online workouts aren’t going to cut and you have enough space to invest in home gym equipment, a cross trainer can be a great piece of kit.

And there are plenty of options that won’t leave you in the red, with Argos and Amazon offering machines for under £100. Check out some of our top picks below.
