If you’re feeling a little unmotivated working out at home, there are a few things you can do to get back on your A-game – including investing in the right exercise equipment. Here, we round up the four key pieces you need to maintain your momentum.
A Fitness Tracker If you’re not already on the fitness tracker bandwagon, now is the perfect time to start. As well as nudging you off the couch and away from Netflix by reminding you to stand up several times a day, most devices also feature built-in on-screen coaching and daily stats, so you can see how your productivity compares day-by-day. Our pick? This rose-coloured offering by Apple.
The Perfect Pair Of Headphones
Ideal for drowning out your partner’s business calls, a good pair of headphones is also vital for keeping you motivated. After all, did you even work out if you didn’t use your Spotify playlist? Alternatively, you could slow things down and load a meditation track to drown out the excess noise in the world right now. We love these Blueant Pump Soul Wireless On-Ear Headphones in Black Rose. If they’re not your vibe, JB Hi-Fi also offers a complete range of headphones to suit any of your needs.
Heart Rate Monitor
We don’t recommend wearing this while reading the news, but a heart rate monitor is essential for ensuring you’re exercising at the correct pace. After all, one person’s aerobic session is another person’s stroll in the park. We love the Garmin range, which boasts a host of different colours to choose from, as well as wireless bluetooth technology.
A Food Mixer
Healthy food is vital to any exercise regime. Take a peek on Instagram right now and you’ll find celebrities and influencers the world over getting creative with their meal ideas. If you’re stocking up on fruit and vegetables at the moment (panic buying not included), make things easier by investing in a food mixer and enjoying a daily smoothie. Some also have the ability to chop your vegies, so there’s dinner sorted for days.
For all your exercise accessory needs while in lockdown, head to JB Hi-Fi.
