    The Watt Bike

  • Kettlebells

    Kettlebells

    Originally used by Russian athletes to improve their strength, mobility and power, swinging a kettlebell might look a little odd, but it engages large muscle groups – especially in your backside!

    It will improve your posture as well as being a great workout for anyone with a fitness, strength, or weight loss goal.

  • TRX

    TRX

    This was developed by the Navy Seals looking for a way to train with a small piece of kit in such a way that body weight movements in all three planes could be easily executed.

    It allows you to achieve a full body workout for strength, power and endurance.

  • ViPR

    ViPR

    The ViPR (which stands for Vitality, Performance and Reconditioning) is essentially a rubber tube with handles at various positions and serves to lengthen and load your levers to add a new dimension to your training.

    Known as loaded movement training, the ViPR will add some serious intensity to your tri-planar movement sessions.

    MyFitnessPal app

    This is an increasingly popular app that you can manage your food intake, calorie expenditure, and lifestyle on.
