Exercise equipment designed for home use

If you are in the high risk category, at home exercise equipment may be a better alternative to going to gym or yoga class. As some countries are experiencing not only third waves of mass infections of COVID-19 but infections from various variants like the “Brazil variant” or the “UK variant”, it would seem like the virus will be with us for quite some time.

So going to the gym, or even the routine morning jog is currently no longer an option with social distancing protocols currently in place. The next best solution would be a home gym designed to suit your specific needs. A home gym that comprising the right exercise equipment, that would accomplish your specific fitness goals.

Affordable exercise equipment

Professional exercise equipment can be expensive, but there are products designed for home use that can give the benefits of a gym with out the hefty price tag. Staying physically fit has almost become a life and death matter, as obesity has been linked to complications related to COVID-19 infections. Not only is it considered in some circles as a comorbidity, but it lengthens the time it would take for you to recover should you become infected. If you are already in shape this would mean you would have to stay in shape. If you are overweight, this would mean that you would have to lose the weight.

Even though the news cycles have been saturated with what seems like only COVID-19 related news, we must forget that lifestyle diseases or non-communicable diseases (NCDs) not only affect your survival rate where this virus is concerned but can impact on your quality of life or even end it prematurely. NCDs refer to diseases like Hypertension, Diabetes, Obesity, Cardiovascular Disease, Chronic Respiratory Disease and Cancer. All of these diseases can be prevented through positive lifestyle changes through a healthy diet and exercise. At the end of this article we have included links should you like to read more on the topic.
