10 gifts to keep you active
Making sure to get enough exercise and to keep active in any way that’s appropriate for you, is really important. This Christmas why not treat yourself, or someone else, to an aid that’ll help you encourage exercise and achieve those fitness goals.
Pedal exercisers are ideal for getting low impact exercise at home and are one of our bestselling products. This one has an integral on-board computer that shows the exercise time duration, calories consumed, cycles, and revolutions per minute. It also has adjustable levels of resistance and can fold down when not in use.
This fitness ball is great for helping to strengthen and tone muscles. It can be used in your workouts or you could even use it as an alternative to an office chair while you’re working to help improve your posture. It comes with a hand pump and is easy to inflate or deflate as needed. It’s been made to withstand intense workouts, so you won’t have to worry about it bursting.
Tracking the amount of exercise you do is a great way to help you monitor your progress and see in what ways you can improve. The Beurer AS 99 Bluetooth Activity Sensor measures your pulse and can track the number of steps you’ve done, the distance you’ve covered, the amount of calories you’ve burnt, and more. It can even track your sleep through your movements, so you can see your sleeping pattern and see if there are any changes you can make to improve it.
Need to help improve strength and function in your hands or fingers? Therapeutic putty is a fun way to go about it, as you squeeze and grip it to reap the benefits. It comes in a variety of colours to indicate resistance or you can get different resistances and blend them together.
If you’re looking to get more active, why not try a skipping rope? Skipping ropes can be a really fun way to get more exercise in your life and are a useful piece of kit to help you tone your muscles and improve your cardio fitness. This skipping rope has 200g weights on the end, too, which you can remove if you don’t want to use them.
Despite the name, this useful mat is also very handy to use for physical therapy if you’re recovering from an injury as well as being ideal during yoga practice. When not in use, it can be easily rolled up and is lightweight, making it easy to carry. It’s quick to dry and easy to clean.
The colour of the yoga mat may vary.
A dumbbell is a handy piece of fitness equipment to help build strength. The Myga Neoprene Dumbbell is available in a range of different weight sizes from 1kg all the way up to 10kg. The non-slip neoprene coating works to help protect floors if the dumbbell is accidentally dropped, while the hexagonal ends prevent the dumbbell from rolling away. The interior is made of a durable cast iron to help it withstand intense workouts.
8: Rehaband Set
The Rehaband Set contains three resistance bands of varying strengths to help you build strength when exercising. They could be used in a variety of exercises and the different resistances mean you can pick the right level to suit your needs in the moment. The bands are made from a natural rubber latex and come in light, medium light, and medium resistances.
Part of getting active involves taking good care of yourself on rest days too. If you’re finding that your knees or elbows are bothering you, the Beurer EM29 2-in-1 Knee & Elbow TENS could offer you drug-free pain relief. It has four pre-programmed applications and 20 different intensity levels, so you can get it adjusted to the right setting for your needs. It also has adjustable straps for a snug and comfortable fit.
10: Garden Kneeler
If getting active in the garden is more your style, then why not treat yourself to this Garden Kneeler? This useful gardening tool is handy for any gardener. Turned one way, it’s a comfortable spot to rest your knees and protect them against sharp stones or spiky plants while you garden. Turned the other way up, it’s a seat for you to rest on a moment while you survey your handiwork.
