The hot list: fitness gear we love

#1 Athlete Recovery Sleepwear

We all know that sleep is vital for your body to regenerate and recover from the day’s stresses. To promote this we’ve got hi-tech beds that promote deep rest, pillows that optimise your breathing and now… pyjamas that help your body to rebuild itself while you rest. Why didn’t they think of this before? The key to it is the print on the inside of the Athlete Recovery Sleepwear, which leverages the power of Far Infrared. Far infrared can improve circulation and reduce inflammation. You snooze, you win! Check it out here.  

#2 Monkey Balls

Rollers are great for ironing out those knots and improving mobility, but the 60mm monkey “lacrosse” ball is perfectly designed to reach those hard-to-reach trigger points. It’s recommended you use the Monkey Ball on your traps and delts after a heavy upper body workout, or on glutes and calves after smashing your legs. It gets bonus points for being small enough to fit into your gym bag! Check them out here


#3 Blue Raw D-Maks

Lifting shoes just got slicker. Ryderwear Raptor D-Maks are made from premium suede leather and have padded ankle support and latex heels for cushioning. Unlike the regular D-Maks, the RAW lines feature an all-suede shoe (including the heel, which normally has a shiny plastic cap in the standard D-Maks). The comfort, the colour! Crush!

#4 BeatsX Wireless Earphones

These wireless headphones are everything. Only five minutes of charging gives you two hours of playback – but you can achieve up to eight hours of battery life. You can use them to take calls from your phone and you don’t have to put up with poor sound just because you’re working out. And perhaps most importantly the earbuds are comfortable and stay put. The perfect package. Check them out here

 


#5 UA scale

It may look like a UFO, but this smart scale is no sci-fi fantasy. It can track your body weight, body fat percentages and help you progress towards your goal. Plus it looks sweet thanks to its glass-topped design with a large scrolling LED display. It also serves up 'motivational' messages to help you hit your goals. It’s also good for the whole family. It can recognise up to eight users and you can navigate your way around your data manually via the scale, not just the app. Check it out here
