Upgrade your home gym with these fitness essentials

For the most part, gyms remain closed — and where they have reopened, it is still a risky idea to visit them. The solution for many of us is clear: It’s time to move workouts from the gym to the home. Which makes this fall the perfect time to take your living space and add the necessary fitness components that can make it work for your exercise regime, and your life. Right now, Best Buy is offering some amazing discounts on fitness equipment, from treadmills to smartwatches to massagers to help bring all the benefits of working out to you and your home.

An essential accessory for fitness tracking from Fitbit, a brand you know. The great thing about a Fitbit watch like the Sense is it won’t set you back in the same way that an Apple Watch or other smartwatches will, but it’s still jam-packed with features, and it’s geared specifically towards health.  It can constantly and easily help you monitor your heart, keep tabs on your stress,  and can help you with sleep.  It even has a feature that keeps an eye on your skin temperature.  The amazingly bright display and easy OS make navigation and notification easy as can be and as a bonus, its Amazon Alexa integration puts it to work using only voice commands.

Gymera - Revolutionary Intelligent Home Fitness

Exercising at home has many advantages. You can tailor your workouts to fit your own schedule; you can enjoy the privacy of being in your own house or apartment; it's easier to remove distractions so you can focus on your work, and it saves you from having to go back and forth to the gym several times a week. There are a few drawbacks, though. Namely, you need to furnish your own equipment, and you need to find your own motivation for working out, even when you may not feel like it. Gymera solves both of these problems: Gymera makes exercise both effective and fun, and if you back it now on Kickstarter, you can get an Early Bird discount of up to 45%. Here's why you might consider adding Gymera to your home gym.
