New Workout Tech For Spring And Summer

Workout Tech

Spring is here, and it’s time to shake off any bad habits you may have picked up during the winter and get back to your workout routine. That’s easier said than done, however, and you might find yourself a little under-motivated. If you’re feeling less than enthused about your workout regimen, then maybe it’s time to spice things up with some new high-tech help. The fitness technology industry is booming right now, and there are tons of different and fun products for you to choose from. So we decided to pick out some of our favorites and give you some ideas for the warm weather.

Gymwatch

Designed to be used during different types of workouts—machines, free weights, or bodyweight exercises—the Gymwatch can actually detect if you’re doing an exercise improperly and offer feedback and advice during your workout. You don’t always have the luxury of working out with a buddy, but now you can be confident in your workout even when your lifting partner is stuck in the office.

Jaybird X2 Bluetooth Earbuds

No matter how well your earbuds stay on your ears, there’s always the cord to deal with, and that can get surprisingly frustrating when you’re putting in a hard workout, or just going through a motion that gets them tangled. With the Jaybird X2 earbuds, there aren’t any cords to tangle—the earbuds play music via Bluetooth, and the battery lasts for 8 hours.

Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale

There’s no better piece of equipment for motivation than a scale, but your old one probably just tells you your weight. Is that the whole story? This scale tracks the weight changes of up to seven people—monitoring BMI and body fat percentage, as well. All the data is uploaded via Wi-Fi, and you can access is online, or on your smartphone for a little motivation on the go.

HyperIce Vyper

Rolling out with a foam roller is an excellent way to loosen up before and after a workout. The HyperIce Vyper takes this to the next level by incorporating a high-power, three-speed, vibrating motor. Your back and legs will thank you when you start using the Vyper after your most grueling workouts.

Zepp Labs

Are you hitting the links or the tennis court now that the weather is warming up? Well, if you want to improve your swing, but don’t want to shell out money on lessons, then take a look at the Zepp Labs’ kit. This sensor fits onto the end of your club or racket handle, and tracks your performance, giving you feedback in real-time plus additional analytics once you’ve finished.

Getting back into a workout routine can be tough, but with these high-tech options, you can get yourself going again just in time for the warmer months. Remember, you’ll still need the right nutrition before and after your workout if you want to see the results you’re looking for.

Workout Gear For Spring

Running

Check out some of the gear you’ll need in the coming months.

Maybe you were cooped up in the gym, running on the treadmill all winter, or maybe the warmer weather is just calling your name. Whatever the case, you’re probably looking to get outside and exercise this spring. Compared to the winter cold, the weather might look amazing right now, but no matter how much we wish it were summer, we’re not quite there yet. Spring training comes with its own set of challenges, and the weather is issue number one. Depending on where you live, it may not be quite as warm as you’d like, or you might be getting buckets of rain every week. Fortunately, Promax has your back, and we’ve gathered together some of the best gear for your spring training sessions.

Nike LunarEpic Flyknit

Nike is hailing these as the future of running, and their futuristic look is pretty impressive. If you’re looking for a new running shoe this spring, you may want to check out the LunarEpic. The sock-like upper is designed to feel like a natural extension of your leg, and the one-piece construction is woven for maximum comfort and breathability on your runs this spring.

Adidas Run Pack-Dye Jacket

This women’s jacket is light and breathable, with an uneven finish that sets it apart from anything else out there. The jacket comes with thumb holes, a full-zip hood, and UV protection, so when the weather gets rough, you’ll be ready to run right through it. The lightweight material also packs easily, so you won’t have any trouble stowing it if the sun makes an appearance.

Dynamic+ Run Ultralight Short Socks

These socks, available for both men and women, are made for running. They feature a perfect anatomical fit and minimal padding for a perfect fit that easily slides into even your tightest running shoes. They also have antibacterial odor reducing properties, and are made with polypropylene—which doesn’t absorb moisture into the fibers. These socks are perfect for your spring workouts, whatever weather you happen to be facing.

Under Armour Patterned Long-sleeve

Made from Under Armour Tech™ material, this long-sleeve has a looser fit than the compressions that many people associate with UA. The material is quick drying and incredibly soft, making it the perfect long-sleeve shirt for when the weather hasn’t quite warmed up as much you might like. The fabric also has technology to prevent the growth of odor-causing microbes and keep you smelling fresh.

Spring weather can turn on a dime, but it’s up to you to get out and make the most of the warming weather if you want to get yourself in shape for summer. Getting yourself some new gear is a smart way to prepare for whatever spring weather you encounter. But you’ll also need some help recovering after a grueling run or workout, so head over to Promax and check out our protein bars. With so many great choices, there’s a Promax protein bar for everyone.
