The new year is just around the corner, so we're all the verge of being our most virtuous selves. If you know someone who pledges to get in shape every year and never manages to get past the first hurdle (resisting the lure of leftover quality streets) then you might want to give them a gentle nudge in the right direction this Christmas. These gifts are perfect for everyone from the reluctant runner to the seasoned athlete.
It's not cheating if you don't get caught, and with this discreet Beurer Stomach Toning Belt tucked away under your clothes, no one ever need know you didn't do a bajillion crunches to acheive those killer abs. This device is the perfect compliment to a active lifestyle and healthy diet, meaning you can achieve more from your workout routine and see the results faster!
Recovering after a grueling workout is half of the struggle, so it helps if you have a helping hand to ease sore muscles, manage pain and improve performance. For athletes who work out 2-3 times per week, we recommened the Compex SP2, an electrostimulation device with muscle intelligence technology to help you make the most of your post-workout routine.
Current recommendations say we should all be taking 10,000 steps per day, but many of us fall short of this goal and the result is easy to see on the nation's waistline. The Beurer Acitvity Tracker is a souped-up pedometer in a sleek and discreet band. It can track your movement, monitor your sleep patterns, and even wake you (but not your partner) for your morning run with gentle vibrations.
Although not technically a fitness device, if you're looking to get in the best possible shape this year you need the Wellbox in your corner. It's an at-home lipo-massage device that will help to smooth your skin, banish cellulite and skim away inches using a specialist lift and roll technique to break up fat cells, smooth the skin and boost collagen production. Perfect for problem bums and stubborn tums – hello, bikini body!
And finally, if your budget won't quite stretch to the Wellbox, or if you're looking for a smaller device for on-the-go use, the Silk'n Silhouette could be the one for you. It uses three types of technology to tone, reverse the signs of adgeing and improve the texture of your skin. Radio Frequency Energy firms the deeper layers of your skin, LED Light Energy restores your skin's natural balance and the IR Heat Energy works its magic to improve the overall texture of your skin. All of this in an easy-to-use handheld device!
