It’s clear for many of us that exercise is an important part of our daily routines. We’ve been finding new ways to move since the gyms have been closed, but maybe you’re needing something to give your home workouts that extra boost? Read on as we divulge a list of fitness devices that will be sure to keep you moving.
Improving our core strength has a range of benefits, from helping us to carry out everyday tasks, reducing the risk of lower back pain and helping correct our posture - particularly important for those of us working from home. The SIXPAD Absfit 2 helps to obtain additional tone and definition, whilst building core strength.
The device works by using Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology to effectively stimulate dormant muscle fibres which often aren’t engaged during exercise, to sculpt the body you want in much less time. The technology is paired with Cristiano Ronaldo’s recommended 23-minute training programme to accelerate the toning of your abdominal muscles.
Missing the squat rack? This device replicates exercises that target the gluteus maximus, medius and minimus (in other words glutes) to effectively tone and tighten the bottom area. The Slendertone Bottom Toner uses advanced, clinically proven EMS technology to deliver a thorough workout to the region. The ergonomic design stimulates the area through a comfortable shorts garment, helping you to maintain your physique and muscular strength obtained in the gym.
Take your home workouts to the next level with the Slendertone Abs 8, enabling you to reach high-intensity toning by working all four abdominal muscle groups. The design of the belt perfectly fits around the natural curves of the body, delivering targeted EMS technology to the abdominal area when performing cardio activity or abdominal exercises. The Slendertone Abs 8 is equipped with a face up display, 10 toning programmes and 100 intensity levels to choose from to deliver a powerful workout.
Strengthening and toning your pelvic floor is a powerful gateway to improving your physical and mental wellbeing, especially if you’ve been suffering from embarrassing issues such as incontinence. The Elvie Trainer is a smart device that guides you through your kegel exercises. By connecting the device to an app, the Elvie Trainer visualises your pelvic floor movements with biofeedback.
What’s more, there’s 6 unique kegel workouts to choose from, designed to motivate you and bring fun to your workouts. Acting as your personal trainer, the Elvie Trainer challenges you to build pelvic floor strength and tracks your progress over time.
Slendertone's Connect Abs belt delivers a completely personal experience by connecting to your phone. This belt will be all the motivation you need, acting like your very own personal trainer by providing personalised coaching and feedback, so you always stay on track. Plus, the Slendertone Connect Abs Belt comes with 5 bespoke training programmes which can be tailored towards your own training goals.
Or try the Slendertone Abs7 Toning Belt (RRP £150) which can be used 5 times a week to tone and build muscle strength in as little as 4 weeks. The belt's controller marries up to other Slendertone devices too, so you can complete full body toning without spending much more.
