Electronic Bikes

Millions of people hit the gym regularly but are left disappointed by a lack of results. In many cases, it’s because they limit their hopes of success due to poor decisions out of the gym. An hour of activity a day is excellent, but burning extra calories throughout the day is the key to fat loss and muscle building. Using an e-bike for the commute to work provides riders an opportunity to do this without taking on harsh winds or steep hills. Better still, they can save money and ride off the stress.

Fitness Watches

The market is awash in an array of fitness watches and tracker devices. Aside from delivering key insights into your activity levels, they are a motivational tool. Whether trying to beat your past results or compete against friends, it doesn’t matter. Wearing a fitness tracker that offers notifications throughout the day will help you stay on track. It is a particularly useful tool when you enter a slump or feel as though your hard work is going to waste. It truly is the modern fitness revolution.

Sleep Devices

While looking at the blue light of a smartphone can harm your sleep, technology isn’t the enemy. There are plenty of Apps and podcasts designed to help you ease into the REM phase of sleep.

It will subsequently support sleep habits. For those that struggle to get their 40 winks, science and technology are the answer.

VR Gaming

Home fitness has always been a big industry. However, many people simply don’t get on with workout DVDs and similar products. VR gaming experiences have changed the landscape forever. Whether it’s yoga or boxing, getting active while playing video games is a special thing. There are now treadmills that make static running far more exciting. Whether they are used to supplement or replace gym workouts doesn’t matter. The transformation of the home workout arena has spearheaded progress.

Digital Bottles

The humble water bottle is one of those training items that most people felt couldn’t be improved. It is now possible to link your container to an App that tells you when to drink. Given the role of hydration, this simple step can have a significant impact on many lives. Even those that are hoping to improve their lives with the simplest of lifestyle changes can look to this idea for inspiration.
