Exercise and yoga mats are an essential piece of kit for the committed exerciser. Our selection ranges from basic non-slip mats to thicker pads with protection for more intensive exercise and gym work. Our Reebok yoga mat is thick enough to cushion hard surfaces and provides good support for your feet, hands and knees. And it’s big enough to stretch out or exercise comfortably on and can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth.
You’ll also need a mat if you like to exercise with a gym or yoga ball. These are ideal for toning and strengthening core muscles and have been proven to improve balance and coordination. Free weights, including dumbbells and barbells, are also convenient, low-cost ways to build strength and stamina.
Stretching is very important if you are starting an active regime, for example using a treadmill, a cross trainer or even low-tech equipment like a skipping rope. These activities raise your heart rate, improve your stamina and can give you a great sense of wellbeing but you need to ensure you warm up and warm down properly.
Fitness trackers help you keep an eye on your current fitness and track your progress. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of your body and how it responds to exercise and be able to work effectively towards your goal. And why not apply the high tech to other exercise, Slendertone toning belts will allow you to exercise your body while you go about your day.
