There are so many ways we can help you kick-start your fitness regime. Just take a look at our great value accessories. From balance boards and yoga blocks to hula-hoops and resistance bands, you don’t have to spend a fortune to firm up and slim down. Low-cost ankle and wrist weights will increase the effectiveness of your exercise efforts, while handgrips will help to strengthen your wrists, hands and forearms. For committed exercisers, we have pull-up and sit-up bars and body building systems. At the higher-tech end of the scale, ab-toning belts have been shown to improve core muscle tone and strength in a matter of weeks, and they can be used alongside your exercise programme to achieve better results more quickly.
If you’re putting together a small home gym, your equipment should almost certainly include weights, including dumbbells and quite possibly a barbell. If space allows, you might want to add a treadmill, bike or rowing machine. All these will burn fat and hugely improve your cardiovascular fitness.
A fitness tracker will help you judge how you’re doing and how much progress you’ve made. They will record your heart rate and how many calories you’re burning, while most include a pedometer so you can keep track of how far you have moved each day.
