If you’ve been following along, we’ve been all about the batteries. How to make them run longer, last longer and getting the most out life. But, what about our very own batteries? How can we make sure our own bodies can keep up the batteries we are looking after? We’re not cliché enough to say new year, new you (well…) but we thought we’d give take a look at some of the innovative tech products you can use to make sure you hit your peak performance.
An Interactive Fitness Mirror
Enjoy workout sessions and classes from the comfort of your own home! There are a variety of fitness mirrors on the market now, including the VAHA and Mirror brands. They are mounted onto your wall, thin and sleek like a modern-day TV and can turn any room into an interactive, AI fitness room. They offer real-life feedback, like our iBOS and ego’s do, to ensure that you are working out as effectively as possible and correctly following along with the onscreen exercise via built-in sensors.
Sometimes working from home is excellent, but you don’t always know if you are doing the exercises correctly, and this way, you can see how to do an activity using the mirror. You can easily integrate your favourite apps onto the mirror, such as Spotify, Instagram and TikTok. You can also download the accompanying app and access even more world-class trainers when you are not at home, such as holidays, business trips or even office breaks; you can work out whenever you want.
A Hydrow Rower
More than simply a fitness gadget, the Hydrow Rower is an innovative take on a traditional rower. It is the Peloton of rowers, if you will. Featuring a sleek, sizeable 22-inch HD screen, you can immerse yourself in your workouts and row virtually on waterways across the globe. Just choose where you would like to row that day and before you know it, you will be transported there. The machine offers access to over two thousand live and on-demand workouts with instructors leading the sessions. Not only can you row around the world, but the online classes also offer other exercises such as yoga and Pilates. It looks sleek and modern and would be a fantastic addition to your home gym.
Tangram Skipping Rope
If you are looking for an alternative to HIIT workouts or something gentler on the body than running, a skipping exercise may be right for you. But not just any skipping rope, this is the smart Tangram skipping rope which has 23 LEDs on the rope section and magnetic sensors that can track your rope jumping session, monitor calories burned, and log all your data in real-time. Using Bluetooth technology, it can be paired with smartphones and watches using the Smart Gym app. By pairing the skipping rope with your app, you can store workouts and look at essential workout stats such as how many jumps and calories burned and track any progress you make. It also features transparent handles and an adjustable rope length, making it the best-looking jump rope we have seen in a while.
Jaxjox Kettlebell Connect
At home weight workouts can be great, but all the kit that comes with it and the room it takes up can be a lot. To combat the cost and space needed, let us introduce you to a very nifty and clever piece of equipment, the Kettlebell Connect by Jaxjox. Although it is just one kettlebell, you can change its weight simply by inputting the weight you would like into the Bluetooth console and as if by magic (via magnetics), the kettlebell changes weight to whatever weight you desire. It only takes up the space of one kettlebell whilst performing as a whole set.
Rechargeable Vortex Mixer
It may sound a little out there, but this protein shake holder combined with a USB phone charger can be a gym lifesaver.

This handy drinks holder can be transformed into a workout lifesaver as it charges your battery and holds your water or protein shake simultaneously. Workout saved! Not only that, but if you didn’t have time to pre-make your protein shake, it features an inbuilt motor and x-blade technology which mixes your protein shake itself and gets rid of any lumps for a smooth tasting protein shake. Amazing.
