Wearable Technology

As a result of Covid-19 lockdowns around the world people started to rethink at-home workouts.  Enter, wearable technology! Many of us now use wearable tech in some form, such as by tracking our daily steps. Wearable technology can be used to track progress and gain a better understanding of daily activities. It can also help you activate your muscles in a new way, motivating you to stay on top of your game. With The Flex Belt, you can use the handheld controller to increase the intensity and challenge yourself to bump it up another few levels with each toning session. Can you hit level 150?

Exercise is Medicine

The value of getting active, both physically and mentally is a fitness trend that has gotten bigger than ever. Since lockdowns, people have moved and interacted less, which has been intensified by stress and hardship in all areas of life. The knock-on effect is the mental and physical wellbeing of many Americans. We know that poor fitness and physical health boosts risks associated with mental illness and chronic disease. That’s why exercise should be looked at as preventive medicine, although it’s never too late to start!

In fact, Harvard Medical School recommends using exercise to improve your health and wellbeing. In addition to being as effective as medications on mood and anxiety, physical activity also helps with memory and heart health.

Increase In Virtual Fitness

Being healthy and time is a balance people often struggle between. For people who have continued some kind of exercise routine during the pandemic, virtual fitness has been key. Home workouts were gaining traction even before Covid-19 which is why many Flex Belt users love to add an online workout class to maximize their routines! Back to the office means back to the daily commute and less time for going to the gym. Why not save yourself time with an online Pilates or HIIT workout that helps you get your heart rate up, and use The Flex Belt to warm down and add another level of intensity to your ab workout.

Move to Holistic Fitness

What is Holistic Fitness? Holistic Fitness looks at more than just muscle strength and endurance. It is a health protocol that seeks to enhance the fitness of the complete physical body and emotional health. When incorporating Holistic Fitness into your routine, look for methods that combine activities that focus on stress reduction, diet, traditional exercise, and sleep habits. One won’t work as effectively without the other. If you’re too stressed, it can be hard to sleep, meaning you feel too tired to cook a healthy meal and don’t have the correct nutrition intake to maximize your workout! Remember, your health is your wealth.

Active Recovery

Active recovery focuses on stretching and improving mobility and is intended to complement workouts. Active recovery can also include low-intensity exercises. Active recovery can reduce soreness and speed up the muscle-rebuilding process which is important for muscle development. For example, after five days of solid training, an active recovery session helps your muscles recover by increasing blood flow without putting a heavy strain on your muscles and joints. The perfect example of this is The Flex Belt! Stimulate the muscle nerves, The Flex Belt causes your muscles to contract, giving you 150 ab contracts in just 30 minutes!
