Home Workout Kits
Yes, yes. Some of us may want to see the back of home workouts but this could be the perfect starting point for a beginner who is not quite ready to step into a gym. And it is much easier to fit these into a busy schedule.
Exercise balls, resistance bands, small weights and mini trampolines are ideal for the home. Or go a bit more alternative with a yoga kit which includes a mat and instructional video.
There are plenty of videos online to help you make the most of your purchases.
It’s been proven that working out to music makes the whole thing more enjoyable. And, on those days that exercise may seem like a drag, time seems to go faster when listening to your favourite tracks. Look out for sets designed with fitness in mind - particularly wireless models that can be linked via Bluetooth to a phone or other device.
Beanie hat with head torch
The cold and dark months are here but that shouldn’t stop you exercising this winter.
Keep your head warm and your path lit by wearing a beanie hat with rechargeable light. Gift this with a hi vis waterproof jacket or breathable coat and you’ll be able to exercise safely, whatever the weather – no excuses!
Punching bags are great for improving co-ordination, flexibility, burning calories and venting stress, and they’ll absorb all the punishment you can throw at them. An inflatable punching bag, which rocks back and forth with every punch, offers serious and fun exercise for the entire family. A present that will definitely help let off some steam!
A compact picnic backpack is a foolproof way of encouraging the reluctant walker to get more active. With the incentive of an outdoor feast midway through, venturing out for a walk is a much more appealing proposition. Add in a thermal flask so tea or coffee lovers can enjoy their favourite hot drink, too.
The growth of smart tech has made exercise gadgets that bit more affordable.
Tracking steps and activity can become quite addictive and be that extra motivation to get up off the sofa. Again, another way of goal setting and encourage friends to reach targets.
