THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
Half the battle of going to the gym is actually getting there. Eliminate this obstacle by working out in the comfort of your own home. Tight on space? Not a problem. Echelon has a vast range of fitness equipment designed to fit into your home. For example, Echelon’s Reflect Fitness Mirror takes up little-to-no space and the Echelon Connected Smart Rower Machine has a foldaway feature making it easy to stow away when not in use.
RIGHT ON TIME
Whether you’re looking to step up your fitness regime, or just looking to take a few more steps in the day, investing in a fitness tracker is the easiest way of reaching your target. Not only do they provide you with helpful reminders to keep you on track, but other metrics also provide data to show where you have made progress across all aspects of your wellbeing. Look to Fitbit, Garmin and Apple Watch for the best smartwatches to keep you motivated.
SKIP TO IT
Skipping has become a popular exercise amongst fitness fanatics everywhere namely down to the fact that it’s a fun workout that burns calories fast and can be done with minimum gear in a pretty small space - perfect for those days when you can’t make it to the gym. Lightweight and adjustable, the SmartRope Rookie from Tangram syncs to your smartphone to record jump counts, calories burned, workout times and track goals. What’s more, it offers interval training recommendations and keeps you motivated by unlocking awards and creating competition with friends.
Whether it’s the last mile or the last ten reps, when the right song comes on, you feel invincible. That’s why having a pair of top-quality earphones is vital to your workout routine. The Jabra Elite 7 Active Earbuds are the ultimate workout companion thanks to their ShakeGrip technology and IP57-rated waterproof protection which both unlock ultimate workout freedom. Or, if you prefer an on-ear fit, the Sennheiser HD 350BT Wireless Headphones deliver great sound, have long battery life and are extremely lightweight, which make them the ideal pair for working out.
There’s nothing quite like a muscle pain or ache to get in the way of your fitness routine. While rest is best, Therabody is here to help you bounce back into action. Whether you’d like to improve range of motion pre-workout or recover faster afterwards, the Theragun uses percussive motion to stimulate muscles, enhance blood flow and even soften knots.
