Our Must Have Fitness Accessories For Home And Gym
Made a new year's resolution to get fit this year? Or just looking for the perfect equipment to make exercising a little more enticing? We're here to help you out. Here are some of our favourite fitness accessories.
A good sports bra
Probably an obvious one, but a good sports bra is so important to reduce the movement of your breasts and consequent tissue damage and sagging in the future. When you are choosing a sports bra, it is important that you get one that fits right, one that will suit your cup size, as well as the intensity of your workout.
Keep pesky cords out of your way while exercising with a pair of bluetooth earphones. Put your phone on the ground beside you and keep listening to your favourite tunes while working up a sweat.
Dumbbells are a very useful piece of equipment to have at home. They are very versatile, fairly inexpensive and can be used for a wide variety of upper and lower body strength building exercises.
Skipping for a few minutes a day can improve your fitness level and burn some serious calories. It is a great at home workout that is perfect if you don’t have time to get to the gym. Get a weighted skipping rope to build strength while getting a good cardio workout.
A resistance band is perfect for both exercising and stretching. These bands can be taken and used anywhere as they are compact and lightweight. Exercising with a resistance band is easy on your joints and will help build strength in various parts of the body.
A fitness mat is a must-have for making floor exercises more comfortable. The mat will protect your tailbone, elbows and knees while exercising, while providing more grip and keeping your sweat off the floor. The mat can also be used for stretching and yoga.
A foam roller is a great way to stretch your muscles and aid their recovery after any workout. Spend 10 minutes rolling to ease muscle tension and discomfort, and increase your flexibility. Oh, and the best part? It is pretty much a self massage too.
