It’s never too late to make Health & Fitness a priority in your life. The secret is to make it a lifestyle. Whatever your fitness goal, there are a wide variety of products that can help you get there. Let’s look at all the products that can help you accomplish all your fitness-focused goals.

Wearable technology to track activity and sleep

Wearable Technology includes smartwatches, fitness trackers, GPS watches, and smart glasses. For health and fitness, a good place to start is with a Smartwatch or Fitness Tracker. They include features such as step trackers, heart rate and sleep analysis to track your activity and rest over days, weeks, and months. Users can also track workouts, and see their average heart rate and calories burned for each workout. This is a great way to gamify exercise. Track workouts, and try to beat your metrics like steps per day. It challenges you to always get better.

Advanced wearable tech features

For data nerds, look for models that support Advanced Wearable Tech Features. For example, Pulse Oximetry, or SpO2 measures oxygen saturation in your blood. It’s a valuable tool to track fitness recovery. An electrocardiogram (ECG) measures the electrical activity the heart generates. It can test for things like arrhythmia, an irregular heartbeat. VO2max shows how well your body is using oxygen. The higher your VO2max score, the better shape you are. Runners may also want Wearable Tech with GPS Tracking. This gives you accurate info on your location and your speed through a GPS satellite.

Sm,art scale fitness

Smart scales to track progress

A lot of people judge their health and fitness success or failure on a traditional scale. The problem is our weight fluctuates during the day. Smart scales solve this by providing additional features. First, they track your weight and graphically show your progress. So if you’re cutting calories from your diet, it will show up on a smart scale. Second, smart scales show your body fat percentage. When people say they want to lose weight, they’re really saying they want to lose body fat. To me, that’s the most important thing to measure. During weight loss, the goal should be to lose fat while retaining muscle. Use a smart scale to track fat loss, not body weight. This buying guide will help you decide which smart scale to get. 

Home gym fitness

Strength training for home fitness

Thanks to the internet, people now realize the importance of Strength Training. Building and preserving lean muscle mass is the key to longevity. The good news is, you don’t need a gym membership. You can strength train at home. If you have a dedicated room for a home gym, consider getting some Home Gym Equipment. If you’re looking for multiple workouts, choose All-in-One Home Gyms. Some allow up to 50 exercises in a single machine. Otherwise, build your own home gym with Dumbells and Weight Benches

Cardio machines for at-home workouts

Since a lot of people work from home now, many are also looking for Cardio Machines to get a quick workout during the work day. If you have the space, Treadmills are a great way to get your steps indoors. Watch your favourite movie or TV show while walking. Make it a commitment to only watch Netflix on the treadmill. Bikers will naturally gravitate to Exercise Bikes. These allow you to join online classes from the comfort of your home. Elliptical and Rowing machines are two other great options to stay active indoors. 

Massage fitness

Fitness recovery to prevent injuries

Injury prevention is a key priority for anyone starting their fitness journey. The last thing you want is to be motivated to workout, but you can’t because you’re injured. I’ve been there many times, so I speak from experience. If you feel tightness or soreness in your muscles, consider Massagers. There are many different types of massagers, but Handheld and Percussive Massagers are a popular choice. They stimulate blood circulation, generate heat, and release tension. This buying guide will help you decide which massager is right for you.

Foam Rollers are another great option, especially for runners. They break down knots in muscle, release tightness, and help to prevent injury. If you’re looking for specific trigger point therapy, consider Massage BallsWhile they vary in size, massage balls also differ in their design. Some are smooth and firm like a lacrosse ball, while others are soft like a squash ball. Newer electronic massage balls even vibrate. Hold yourself in a static position and let it do all the work for you. Make fitness recovery a priority in your health and fitness program. Not getting injured is half the battle.   

Tracking your health metrics

One way to keep you motivated is with Health Tech. There are a wide variety of products to help you stay the course. If you’re having sleep issues, check out Sleep Tech. There are sleep tracking mats that you put on your mattress, and white noise fans machines that help you fall asleep. Others may want to invest in Health Monitors and Metres. For example, if you have high blood pressure, consider Blood Pressure Monitors. Many work with your smartphone, and track your blood pressure in an app.
