Getting a quality workout doesn't have to mean paying for fancy equipment or an expensive gym membership. No matter where you are, you can get a quality fitness session in with just a few supplies.

If you have these six objects on hand, you can get a great workout:

1. Tennis Ball
A tennis ball can be used for a a number of different things. You can hold it in your hands as a small weight for ab training or even place it between your knees while doing seated ab work to keep the knees stationary. One of our favorite uses is deep tissue massage with a tennis ball to work out kinks in the muscles -- it's especially effective on the backs of the legs or buttocks when you sit or roll on it.

2. Water Bottle
You can fill bottles with water, sand, marbles, etc. to turn them into dumbbells. They may not be as heavy as you're used to, but they can add a strength training element to cardio or help you perform several reps to burn fat.

3. Towel
In addition to serving as a yoga mat when you're staying in a hotel room, a towel can also be used rolled up to provide support for the neck or low back while performing ab exercises or for the knees when completing floor work. A large towel can also be used to help you stretch.

4. Belt
A belt is another tool perfect for stretches as it works just like a yoga strap. To stretch out the hamstrings, lie on your back with your leg straight up at 90 degrees. Wrap the belt over the bottom of a flexed foot and hold one end in each hand. You can then use the belt to pull the leg toward your face or move it across your body.

5. Books
Books can be another substitute for weights when they aren't handy. Placing a heavy book on your stomach can take bridge work to the next level and you can also hold books while performing various forms of squats. Hardcover is best for grip and additional weight.

6. Paper Plates
Take your ab workout up a notch with some paper plates. Go into a plank with one foot on each paper plate. From there, you can slide the feet from side to side, out and in like a jumping jack or backwards and forwards to crunch the abs. Push yourself with some mountain climbers as well.
