Crossrope Starter Set
Jumping rope is an excellent way for anyone to get an intense cardio workout and burn fat, boost endurance and muscle definition, and enhance strength and body conditioning. But for more versatility, the ability to alter the weight of the rope can change the intensity both ways. The Crossrope Starter Set comes with detachable components that clip together via a patented system.
The jump rope handles feature smooth spinning ball bearings that control the speed of the rope when it’s clipped in. The main rope allows for high speed jumping to enhance coordination and agility. When you want to boost power and endurance just clip on the heavyweight intensity rope. Switching between the two is quick and easy so there’s very little disruption in your routine.
Depending on the user’s height, you can choose from 4 different rope sizes.
BlenderBottle ProStak System
The body has to be replenished with essential nutrients when you’re working out so having a protein drink in hand is a good idea. Rather than making it at home and having to drink it before leaving for the gym, you can make it just when you need it with the BlenderBottle ProStak System. Available in several different sober and cheerful colors, is a protein shaker bottle with three different sized bottom compartments to store your protein powder and other supplements. A 150 cc jar and 100 cc jar are good for powders, while the pill organizer can hold your vitamins. The bottle is a 22 oz capacity one with markings up to 16 oz., and once you add the water to the various supplements in the shaker bottle and close it tight, the included wire whisk ball inside will mix up all the ingredients thoroughly into a smooth health drink. There’s no need to premix it ever again.
The Prostak system allows you to add or remove any component that you don’t need. If you want to make two drinks during the day, just add another bottle and some more storage compartments to the stack, as they’re all sold separately as well. The flip cap is leak-proof and so are the various screw-on compartments. The loop on the top allows you to clip the stack to your gym bag if you don’t have a pocket for it.
Zojirushi Stainless Steel Mug
There’s nothing like a nice cold drink of water during and after a workout but how do you keep your water cold if you use a regular water bottle? Instead, an insulated bottle like the Zojirushi Stainless Steel Mug is a better alternative and its looks are so sleek with its textured, powder-coated finish, that it’s one of the best gifts for gym lovers that doesn’t cost a lot.
It features insulation, so you can keep a cold or hot drink at a constant temperature for at least 6 hours. The taste of the drink is not affected even for such long periods because the inside is made of stainless steel. The layers of insulation also prevents condensation outside or the chance of getting your hand burnt. Take it to the office, gym, beach or even traveling. Its flip top cap is leakproof and can be operated with just one hand so that you don’t have to stop your workout to take a sip. The spout is designed for a smooth flow without danger of spillage. The flip top cap won’t open accidentally in your bag because of its safety lock.
This insulated water bottle is available in three sizes – 12 oz, 16 oz and 20 oz, and also in a variety of cool colors.
Fitbit Alta HR
Tracking your health doesn’t just mean time spent on a treadmill or cycle, or speed attained. Other important metrics include calories burned, which is best evaluated by accurately measuring heart rate during your workout and also throughout the day. The Fitbit Alta HR does all the basics that any activity tracker does but also accurately tracks your heart rate at every zone, including Fat Burn, Cardio, and Peak no matter what you’re doing. That way you can accurately plan your workout goals based on those readings.
You can also track your sleep stages through light, deep and REM sleep and you’ll know if you’re getting the right amount of time in each stage and try to adjust your sleep habits.
Your recorded stats can be synced wirelessly to computers or almost all iOS and Android devices. If you just want to check them on the go, the OLED display can be tapped to check those or the time or notifications from calls, texts and emails, and you can customize the clock face. You get up to 7 days of continuous battery life before it needs a recharge.
Phaiser BHS-730 Bluetooth Headphones
For anyone that likes to listen to music while working out or has to be able to receive calls at anytime, a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones is better than regular headphones. With the Phaiser BHS-730 Bluetooth Headphones you can keep your MP3 device or smartphone at a distance and just connect to it to play music or speak into the inbuilt microphone when taking calls.
The speakers transmit accurate sound and a powerful bass, while the memory foam tips ensure external noise insulation so that you can concentrate on your workouts.
