For the last 20 months, many of us have alternated between exercising at the gym (a preferred choice) to sweating it out at home (not so ideal for some).
But something interesting actually happened during this time. The home fitness revolution began that spiked the sales of fitness and sporting equipment, clothing and accessories.
Avid gym goers who were used to exercising with their peers or alongside others adapted to doing it alone within the confines of four walls, a run or brisk walk in their neighbourhood. If you’re now a self-proclaimed home exerciser and don’t see yourself going back to the gym anytime soon, 2022 is the perfect opportunity to transform your home gym into a fitness haven.
You may have thought of styling it up, getting more durable functional equipment or accessories to help you max out that one last rep.
We’ve scoured a range of health and fitness products from our shopping platform to help you achieve your fitness goals regardless of where you are in your journey.
Get ready to conquer this new year and flex those muscles!

Elite Supplements – Pre-workout powder: Various prices (Save 8%)
Whether you just started working out, are a seasoned enthusiast or a pro, a good pre-workout will get you over that edge and help you push beyond your limits.
Elite Supplements offers a huge selection of international and household brands like Cellulor, EHP Labs, Optimum Nutrition (ON), Muscletech and more. Pre-workouts come in variations of low, mid to high stimulant formulas. It’s best to read and understand the ingredient labels carefully before buying. But we can testify that when you take a pre-workout, especially on days when you don’t feel like working out, it’ll make you WANT to workout.
Brand prices vary – most are under $100 and supply 30-50 servings.
Protein powder isn’t just for the bros who want to make gains. They’ve become a popular product for everyone who needs that extra protein or meal supplement to support their strength and muscle growth or maintenance.
Choose from the selection of regular whey protein, plant-based and vegan protein powders to make your favourite shakes or add as ingredients to your healthy desserts. Some brands offer options for high protein, high carb and high protein, low carb, though, after some research, most of them are generally moderate and low in fat.
Tip: Read their customer reviews especially for taste because while some powders taste great, a few others can leave an unpleasant aftertaste in your mouth.
YOUR BEST BODY STARTS IN THE KITCHEN
Going loco for coconut oil is all the rage lately. But there’s a solid reason behind it – research has found that the oil, especially its pure form as MCT (Medium Chain Triclycerides), helps boost energy and mental clarity.
MCT is converted into clean energy by the liver and not stored as fat in your body. Instead, it helps the body produce ketones which is why many people swear by having a sharper focus and better performance overall when consuming it.
The oil has no taste and is gentle in the stomach. Some people love adding it to salads, sauces and shakes. It can also be taken before exercise or when you know that midday slump is approaching for a quick pick-me-up. Otherwise, if you aren’t already, it’s a good addition to a lifestyle that incorporates intermittent fasting and/or low carb eating.
