My fitness motivation can range from being incredibly pumped up to feeling lazy and uninspired. As much as I try to stay fit, especially because I grew up an athlete, there are just moments I’d rather play games on my Nintendo Switch or watch shows on Netflix. A study suggests that this is because the human brain might innately be more attracted to a sedentary lifestyle. This is according to researchers from the University of British Columbia in an article I read on Elite Daily.
In order to combat this, I find little ways to get my fitness motivation up. Investing in adorable fitness accessories from Above Athletica is one way to go about it! I’ve gotten two of their best-selling items already: Weighted Bangles (P1,499) and a Double Wall Vacuum Insulated Jug (P995 from P1,500). I’m thinking of getting Resistance Bands next to help with my strengthening exercises. Plus I keep eyeing their pink and purple TPE Yoga Mat! If you’re interested to know more about these items from Above Athletica, keep reading.
Weighted Bangles and Double Wall Vacuum Insulated Jug
Wearing weighted bangles during light cardio workouts (such as brisk walking) helps increase benefits without lengthening the workout’s duration. Above Athletica’s Weighted Bangles come in different colors and weighs a kilogram. I like wrapping them around my ankles while doing leg raises to help strengthen my core. I also use them on my wrists for different arm workouts!
Meanwhile, the Double Wall Vacuum Insulated Jug eliminates condensation to keep drinks cold for more than 24 hours and hot for up to 12 hours. It comes with two lids—one with a wide mouth and hook, and another with a straw-type (like in the picture) for leisure drinking. Jugs like these are the reason I’m able to complete my daily water intake. It helps me measure how much water I’ve consumed, and how much more I still need to drink.
Resistance Bands and Yoga Mat
I would use resistance or exercise bands back when I was a competitive athlete training for softball and Ultimate Frisbee. These helped strengthen my ankles, especially since I was always prone to spraining them. Now, I want to get them for myself to include in my home workouts! Above Athletica sells a package of five—all of which have different resistance levels.
They have the cutest yoga mats as well that are durable and non-slip. They’re made with eco-friendly TPE materials that absorb moisture to help get a better grip during sweaty workout sessions. It also comes with a carrying bag that makes it easy to bring around.
In case you’d like to shop for more Above Athletica items, they’re all available on Lazada. Take advantage of their sale while it’s ongoing!
