Welcome to the final post in our New Year, New You series! Did you know that 66% of adults in the UK who make a new year’s resolution say they usually break it in a month or less? That’s why we wanted to share some ideas to keep you inspired and motivated to meet all your goals.
This time we turn our attention to fitness equipment and accessories. Whether you’re just getting started on a workout regime or are an exercise junkie, it’s all too easy to fall into a rut and get bored with our routines. It’s always helpful to add a new twist to a favourite workout, or to explore a new one. And when you take look at our wide range of cardio equipment, weights and accessories, wearable tech, portable audio and fitness DVDs – you’re bound to find everything you need to keep you on track and keeping those resolutions well into 2016!
We also make it easy to shop by activity, so whatever your preferred sport or regime, you’ll find something to help you make it even better. Remember that the key to getting active – and sticking with it – is to find something you truly enjoy doing. We hope these ideas will help get you started!
From yoga and pilates equipment, to weights, kettle bells and jump ropes, you’ll find everything you need to cross-train at home. What’s great about the exercises you can do with these items is they’re easy to do in short bursts. If your lifestyle is too busy to hit the gym for a full session a few times a week, try something like the Body Sculpture stepper with resistance cords or the Pineapple Duo Exercise Wheel, for example. You can even squeeze in a quick workout whilst watching telly!
When it’s cold and dark outside, going for a run or bike ride can seem like the last thing we want to do. But with our cardio equipment selection, you can get in a great work out from the comfort of your home! Check out the Body Sculpture Pro Racing Bike or the Dynamix Motorised Treadmill, or one of our other pieces of kit such as rowing machines and elliptical trainers – we have loads of choices across a range of budgets.
Without a doubt, the must-have fitness accessory for 2016 is an activity tracker. Whether you want to record your workouts, check your progress, or even monitor your sleep quality, there’s a solution for all tastes and budgets. The hugely popular original Fitbit is an ideal choice for a first activity wristband, as it tracks your steps and calories, and even sets daily goals for you. Or check out one of the huge selection of fitness tools and smartwatches from Garmin, like the Vivoactive model, which features built-in sports apps and notifications and will take you everywhere from the office to the golf course or swimming pool.
There are literally hundreds of options available on our fitness page – you can find all of our equipment, workout gear, and footwear here. And if you missed the first two instalments of New Year, New You, be sure to read Healthy Eating and Fashion Meets Sport!
