People say there’s no time like the present to undertake a fitness regime, and in many cases, people’s homes are becoming their fitness center of choice.
The Covid-19 pandemic saw the closure of gyms and well-being facilities across the globe, and many exercise fanatics were forced to find an alternative way to work out… cue the frantic rush of people buying home exercise equipment.
Access to home gym equipment has made life easier for many people, as they can exercise from their own home without worrying about the commute or sharing an exercise area with various people. But in order to set your home-gym aside from the competition, perhaps you should think about transforming your home gym into a futuristic exercise haven, by implementing smart gadgets into it.
Additionally, having a smart gym on the premises is an efficient way to add value onto your property- so if you’re wondering ‘how can I sell my house fast?’ and you own a home gym, take a look at these smart gadgets.
Gadget #1- Smart Boxing Gear
If you have always wanted to start boxing, this smart gadget is for you. FightCamps in-home boxing bag uses smart boxing gloves that are fitted with sensors to inform you of not only how hard you’re hitting the bag, but how many punches you land. The bag is fitted with real-time information to track your boxing progression- leading you to your Rocky-level boxing career from the comfort of your own home.
Gadget #2- Mirror Personal Trainer
It sounds absurd, but technology is really that advanced. At a first glance, the Mirror Personal Trainer appears to be nothing more than a full-length mirror you’d use to get ready in. But at a closer look it is actually a mirror fitted with a LCD screen, meaning you can watch instructor-led fitness classes that are live and on demand.
The mirror allows you to work on your form whilst working out, thanks to the mirror being placed directly in front of you. Offering various types of classes, from yoga, cardio and strengthening classes, the mirror has advanced personal training- and using Bluetooth and activating the mirror camera, your PT can monitor you during your workout.
Gadget #3- Interactive Studio
Perfect for those who enjoy resistance training, the JAXJOX Interactive Studio comes with an electronic foam roller, and kettlebells and dumbbells that automatically adjust in weight. Attached to the top of the equipment is a touchscreen monitor, that will guide you through each workout and track your progress using the detectors in the equipment.
Each time you work out you will be rewarded with a ‘Fitness IQ’, which is a score that takes your average performance, heart rate, consistency and chosen fitness level into account to calculate your overall progress.
Gadget #4- Hydrorow
Using this gadget, you can transform the mundane activity of exercise rowing and pretend you’re anywhere in the world. The screen at the top of the Hydrorow rowing machine enables you to either look at stunning landscapes or partake in personalised exercise classes.
Each machine comes with added equipment, such as a padded seat, dual speakers, a water bottle holder and mounted transport wheels so the bike can be easily moved from room to room.
Gadget #5- Foldable Workout Device
A foldable workout device is perfect if you’re looking for a compact piece of workout equipment.
Lying flat against the floor, it operates as a mini treadmill without the handles, so can be placed anywhere including underneath your work desk. The device also stores vertically once folded in half, so can be hidden from sight.
We’re sure that one of the gadgets above will be perfect for your home gym. If you have some equipment we’ve missed, drop us a comment below!
