Kettlebells

Who knew you could do so much with just one piece of kit. These ball-shaped weights with attached handles are hugely versatile, allowing you to develop almost every aspect of your fitness, from endurance and strength to agility and balance. 

Harness the power of the kettlebell for a full body workout that’ll get you burning fat and engaging with different muscle groups for a more sculpted physique. There are endless exercise variations you can do, but here are a few of our favourites.

TRX

Developed by a former Navy Seal, this form of suspension training develops your strength, balance, flexibility and core stability, all whilst building muscle. 

TRX are those black and yellow straps you’ll see hanging around the gym floor. They rely on your own bodyweight for resistance as opposed to machines or dumbbells, while the infinite variety of exercises makes it perfect for everyone regardless of ability. Try a few of them next time you’re in the gym.

Plyo Box

Think outside the box and supercharge your workout with one of these challenging platforms, perfect for plyometric exercise. This refers to activities that allow your muscles to work at their hardest in the shortest time possible. Whatever action you’re doing, whether it’s push-ups, dips, burpees or even just stepping up onto the box, you’ll work different muscles and challenge your body to gain new benefits. See for yourself by trying some of the moves below.

VIPR

ViPR stands for vitality, performance and reconditioning. Take on the battering ram and discover a workout with muscle. These weighted rubber cylinders make a fantastic addition to your training routine by bridging the gap between movement and strength. You’ll burn big calories and work several muscle groups whilst moving your entire body, burning fat and stimulating the nervous system. Discover a couple of great exercises using the ViPR below.

Woodway Curve

The Woodway Curve is a world first. There are no motors or buttons, it works by your own effort. You could say it runs on sweat and determination. Which makes it the closest thing to running outside, inside. 

Burn 30% more calories as you power the Curve. Simply walking on this self-powered treadmill gives you the same cardio workout as running on a conventional motorized machine. No excuses now.

Wattbike

This is the indoor bike for cyclists. Feel the road under your feet and push yourself harder than ever with the latest technology providing all the data you need to make structured training easy. 

Wattbikes measure the progression of your foot 100 times during one single pedal revolution, and the data collected offers unparalleled accuracy to help you reach your fitness goals. 

Loved by Olympic champions, endorsed by British Cycling, it’s no wonder you feel like you’re riding a proper road bike. Burn calories, build stamina and get a brilliant cardio workout, whatever the weather.
