Technology, science and development, and general common sense have helped us live healthier and safer lives. We live in a time where there is a diversity of options in nearly everything fitness related. If you don’t like a particular food, find an alternative, there are dozens!
If you can’t stand an individual exercise, but it is essential for a specific muscle group, try one of the other dozens! When all else fails, you can start up your search engine and gauge what would be the best alternative.
Though a large portion of our society rejects the postmodern lifestyle we live in, there is no denying that it has given us uncountable benefits and a wealth of information.
Today we are going to be talking about some of the latest fitness and workout equipment.
2020 has been a rather peculiar time for all of us. The pandemic descended on us without nearly the entire world was taken by surprise.
COVID caused significant issues in people’s careers, family life, and of course, their fitness routine. Gyms closed, most stores closed, and those select stores where you got your food wouldn’t open for months.
With the second wave rumored to be coming around soon, prepare yourself this time and consider getting some of the latest home equipment!
Here are a few things you can consider buying.

The rise of High-Intensity Interval Training brought along the inventions of many types of equipment. Muscles-targetted workouts are now what every other enthusiast desires.
Try this range of climbers exercise equipment if you aim for a HIIT or stair master experience. One of your primary areas of focus is not gaining too much fat if quarantine sets in again.
With this climber machine, you will get all the cardio you need and somewhat of a leg exercise while you are at it. Chance are you aren’t going to build a whole lot of muscle, but you can at least work on getting toned.
Cardio should be one of the essential variations in your exercise regimen. There is no point in building an aesthetic body if you don’t have a healthy heart to see you into your golden years.
This machine will get you’re the cardio you need and certainly help with the aesthetic look we strive to achieve.

Though they aren’t all that new, resistance bands are coming around again since the first quarantine. It was hard to find a resistance band set earlier because nearly all of them had sold out.
Moreover, the ones you did find got sold at ridiculously inflated prices. The bands will give you the necessary muscle activation to ensure that you don’t lose muscle mass.
One of the best things about them is that they teach you how to contract certain muscle groups. We often focus too much on stretch and less on contraction. The bands are a great way to fix the issue.

Again, if you are looking to maintain your muscle mass while you are away from the gym, you should consider investing in these dumbbells.
If you are someone who likes to go heavy, these are just the thing for you. You can load up the dumbbell’s weight and slide them off if you are looking to change things up and add in some drop sets.
Moreover, this is an excellent buy if you live in a family where other members work out. If your siblings, parents, or spouse want to reduce/increase the weight, they can easily do so.
These are considerably more user friendly than regular dumbbells as they move away from the standard weight principle. Adjustable dumbells and adjustable kettlebells are definitely a sure-fire way to see some definition through use.
Modern Boxing Bags

If you are looking to get in some cardio, a killer shoulder workout, and unleash your inner Rocky Balboa, consider this. You can find punching bags on the market that track your speed and pressure and give you a general summary of your boxing practice.
The bag and the gloves both have sensors, so you have to buy them both. The only drawback to this is that it’s reasonably expensive.
However, if you consider the purchase, know that you would be training strength, cardio, movement, and learning a new skill!

These are full-length LCD mirrors, basically, the mirrors we know but with a screen. They have a built-in camera so your trainer can see your form and communicate back to you.
Not only that, but the mirror shows you your state, which you can correct before being yelled at by your trainer!
Again, this is a reasonably expensive buy but one that could change the fitness game when you are stuck at home with the potential ‘Quarantine round 2’.
For those dedicated to living a healthier life, no amount of money will ever be too much when it comes to fitness.
If you do find yourself at the checkout counter for one (or more) equipment piece which we have mentioned, consider it as an investment.
Not only is this going to help you achieve your fitness goals, but if you ever consider reselling the items, they have a relatively high resale value.
We hope that quarantine doesn’t raise its ugly head again, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Though we might be hoping for the best, we should all collectively prepare for the worst.
