It’s that time of year again when we all resolve to look after ourselves, eat right, and get into shape. Very worthy goals, whether you’re already a pro at keeping fit, or making a New Year’s Resolution to start a wellness programme. But remember, it’s not all about how you look, but about how you can improve your health, well-being and confidence.
So to help get you started, Littlewoods are presenting a two-part series featuring items that can keep you on track. For this first post, we’ve assembled some essential electronics – these techy gadgets are the must-have items to see you through on your fitness journey. (Of course, you should always speak to your doctor before beginning any fitness programme.)
First things first. One of the keys to a successful change in lifestyle is setting measurable, achievable goals. And in order to do that, you need to start with a baseline – that’s where the Aria wi-fi scale by FitBit comes in. This high-tech wonder will record your weight, body mass index (BMI) and body fat percentage and send it over wi-fi to your private FitBit account, then provide you with charts and mobile tools to help you track your progress. What’s more – it can do this for up to 8 users, so you can get the whole family on board.
Sync it with your FitBit device – if you don’t already have one, now is the perfect time. The Tapered Pink FitBit Blaze is a cutting-edge watch that doesn’t sacrifice high style for high performance. This powerful device tracks your steps, distance, stairs climbed and calories burned, records your heart rate, monitors your sleep, and functions as an extension of your smartphone, with its caller ID and text message display. And let’s be honest – it looks fabulous too.
Next up, give your nutrition a boost with the Nutribullet Superfood Nutrition Extractor. This little marvel serves up perfect smoothies and shakes, from whatever type of fruits, veg, nuts, and seeds you choose – expertly extracting all of the flavour and losing none of the nutrients. And if you’re stuck for ideas, there’s a book included with recipes and tips. Quick, easy to wash and highly portable, the Nutribullet is ideal for a commuting breakfast on-the-go! For a bit of guilt-free indulgence, you can always add a shot of protein-packed flavour with strawberry and white chocolate protein mousse from USN.
And finally, to give your walks or workouts some high-octane energy, pop on a pair of Beats By Dre Powerbeats 2 wireless earphones in pink. Carry your favourite tunes wherever you for an extra spring in your step!
