Our compact steppers are a great alternative to higher-impact machines such as treadmills and they can easily be stored away when you’re not using them. A stepper will give you a great cardio workout, strengthen your legs and core, and improve your balance and coordination. It’s an ideal piece of home equipment because you can gently step away in the comfort of your kitchen or living room while watching TV or listening to music.
If you’re keen to develop a small home gym, dumbbells should probably be your next small investment. These can be used in an almost infinite number of ways to tone, build and strengthen muscle. You can also use dumbbells to increase the effectiveness of other equipment such as gym or exercise balls. Exercise balls are great for core stability, strength and tone, and can be used to intensify exercises such as leg lifts, crunches and press-ups. If you want to add variety to weight training, we also stock barbells and weights ranging from 2kg to 40kg. For a great cardio workout, have a look at a skipping rope, they are great for creating a sweat, cheap and you only need a small space to use them.
A pedometer or fitness tracker will help you keep a check on your fitness journey. These monitor your heart rate and give you a variety of data on how you’re doing and the best ways to progress.
If you’re lifting heavier weights or have a small weakness in your back, you might want to use a weightlifting belt. These are available in a wide range of sizes and give support just where you need it.
