The Dhs600 Home Gym
Fitness-club memberships average Dhs1,870 a year, but you can get a complete workout in your living room without straining your budget. Here’s what you should buy ...
BLAST FAT. You’ll burn 11-plus calories a minute with Jump! The Ultimate Jump Rope (Dhs62, jackiewarner.com). Plus, thanks to its weighted handles, you can work your shoulders too.
…ADD STRENGTH. Swap your dumbbell for the Hyperwear SandBell (Dhs117, spri.com) and your exercise possibilities — and calorie burn — will soar. Its weight shifts, causing more muscle fibres to fire to stabilise it.
…BOOST BALANCE. Like a BOSU, the ProForm Balance Stepper (Dhs55, proform.com) can be used to up the difficulty of strength moves; march on it to raise your heart rate between sets.
…SCULPT ALL OVER. Hook the Valeo Quick Adjust Suspension X-Trainer (Dhs220, amazon.com) over a door and slip into the handles or foot cradles, then use your body weight to get toned.
KINKS OUT. There are 12 flexibility boosting moves printed on the SKLZ TrainerRoller
(Dhs146, sklz.com), making it simple to massage those overworked muscles.
