P.VOLVE

Honing an accessible fitness method that’s based around low-impact – your neighbours will thank you for it – high-intensity movements, P.volve’s innovative equipment will make getting active feel all-the-more manageable, and set you on course for a stronger, more sculpted physique.

From the brand’s {p.ball} – a revolutionary, patented exercise aid that features an inflatable ball at the centre of the elastic band – that deeply activate and tone your glutes, thighs and core, to their {p.3 trainer} – a total-body workout system that uses resistance training to engage your muscles – which works from ankle to hand (it has two ankle straps and an attachable handle) to effectively engage even hard-to-reach muscles. The resistance trainer can be used in many different ways – from the diagonal pull to the knee driver and side-lying leg extension – and is a major asset to anyone following the P.volve method. Complete with a long and short band, you can use this equipment to target your lower and upper body, respectively. It even comes with an attachable 1.5lb ball to take your movements to the next level., P.volve is a must for elevating the results of your at-home pilates and HIT routines.

BALA BANGLES

Living by the mantra ‘good things come to those who sweat’, the wife-and-husband duo behind Bala set out in 2018 to create a line of functional fitness accessories that could fit into your everyday routine as easily as your workout sessions. That’s how the {Bala Bangles} were born; the chic, weighted bands can be worn on your wrists and ankles to add constant but comfortable resistance to your every movement.

Stylish, comfortable and incredibly versatile, these Bala Bangles can be worn on wrists or ankles for training and recreational activities alike. So fold laundry, shred your biceps, go for a walk or train your core – the world just became your gym. With two weighted bangles per set, complete with a black carrying case, you can easily integrate them into your workouts and everyday routine. At 1 pound each – that’s about 0.45kg for us metric-followers – these versatile weights are made of the highest quality fitness materials: recycled stainless steel is wrapped in baby-soft silicone for ultimate comfort, while the athletic elastic band and ultra-strong velcro facilitate a custom fit for every body.

LARQ

Adopting (and altering) the age-old adage ‘you are what you drink‘, the minds behind LARQ are committed to helping you access pristine drinking water, easily and sustainably. We don’t know about you but in the past we’ve been a little loose with the upkeep of our reusable water bottles – some are definitely overdue being recycled – and that’s where LARQ comes in; aligning innovative technology with inspirational design, their award-winning {LARQ Bottle} actually purifies your water, eradicating up to 99.9999% of bacteria and 99.99% of viruses, with its proprietary PureVis™ technology. In the words of TIME magazine, it’s “a huge plus for people who want a sustainable water bottle alternative that doesn’t require constant scrubbing to keep water tasting great.

The design is built around the brand’s proprietary PureVis™ technology that harnesses UV-C light to eradicate germs by triggering a photochemical reaction that destroys their DNA. As well as purifying water in 60 seconds when you press the button, it also activates on its own every two hours to keep your water and bottle clean. It’s double-wall insulated – it keeps water cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 – and powered by a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery that lasts up to 1 month off of one charge, based on estimated usage of 3-4 cycles a day. We know what you’re thinking, just how many filters am I going to have to fork out for? The answer is none! This bottle is filter-free so you won’t need to worry about buying replacements. Instead, you can be happy in the knowledge that you invested in a sustainable, self-cleaning bottle.

THERAGUN

Reinventing the wellness space with advanced tech solutions, Theragun’s aim is to help you take charge of your physical wellbeing. The brainchild of Dr. Jason Wersland who sought a solution to ease his own, debilitating pain in the wake of a motorbike accident.
