In the cursed year that was 2020, we all adjusted to various lockdowns, isolations, quarantines and… I think that’s it. One thing we did? Buy out at-home workout equipment almost as fast as we did toilet paper.
Although some of the former are hopefully just a distant memory, it seems that working out at home really isn’t. A report showed that this year, men and women alike are continuing to use at-home workout equipment. In fact, across both genders, this trend saw a jump of 10% in comparison to 2020.
At-home gyms were a prediction around the New Year as a fitness trend to watch out for in 2021. And it seems like everyone’s favourite store, Kmart, has gotten the memo.
That’s right, we continue to be blessed by living in the same country as Kmart, all thanks to the fact they heard our cries and came out with two brand spanking new fitness machines, that you can fit into the comfort of your home.
Available from today — so get cracking — as part of the company’s latest Online Exclusives range, you can now purchase a Cycle Spin Bike and a Foldable Mechanical Rowing Machine. They’re pretty affordable for their size, and will only set you back a couple of hundred dollars.
These larger-sized home solutions have never been available before at Kmart and join other gym equipment, including a Chin Up Station; Elliptical Trainer, Sit Up Bench, Multi Weight Gym and Boxing Bag and Stand Set.
If you aren’t quite sure as on how to undertake exercising at home, all alone, we’ve compiled this handy list of virtual exercise classes you — and your equipment — can join. Oh, and if you’re worried about the dreaded chafing that often comes hand in hand with a spin bike, we’ve got you covered there as well, with a roundup of the best anti-chafing creams to stop chafing in its tracks.
