5 personalised fitness products to up your workout game
THE FUTURE OF SPINNING
Now it is possible to be part of a cycling class without having to leave your house. The bike, from One Peloton (price $1,995), is currently only available in the US. However, Peloton is ‘actively working on expanding’ to Europe. Let’s hope they’re pedalling hard on that front.
Rather than trying to squeeze into a class at your local gym, you can take part in classes live from the company’s New York studio.
Alternatively, you can access classes 24 hours a day, which can be tailored to your requirements, plus you can choose the instructor that best suits you.
Each session gives your cadence (pedalling rate), resistance and output whenever you’re in the saddle, while the more competitive can pitch themselves against a real-time leaderboard.
Ever need a kick up the backside or want to know when you’re doing things right? KuaiFit Sport headphones feature individual coaching via smart voice feedback.
Training plans are tailored to the biometric data generated by the headphone’s sensors which can store three months’ workout data, as well as 2,000 songs and a heart rate sensor, for £120.
HOW TO THRIVE
Monitoring your health and tracking changes over time can seem impossible, but Thriva can help, with its at-home testing service.
A simple fingertip prick to take a small blood sample is all that’s required. This is then sent to the lab and your personalised report checked by a doctor, who advises on how you can improve your wellness, as well as any health issues or deficiencies you may have.
The baseline test costs £49.
THE PERFECT FIT
DNAFit works with sports people such as London 2012 Olympic champion Greg Rutherford to tailor fitness to individuals’ specific genetic make-up.
Take a simple cheek swab test and get your DNA blueprint 10 days later, complete with guidance on your diet and training. Information includes carbohydrate sensitivity, anti-oxidant need and lactose intolerance. From £99-£249.
If you don’t like swallowing tablets, chewing a Health Span Vitamin Gummy could be the answer. £9.95 for 90.
