Five ways to improve your home gym

Five must-have gadgets for the stylish home gym, including one to purify the air and one to give you a massage.

Theragun

Release stress and tension with the Theragun PRO deep muscle treatment. The massaging device is powerful and quiet, with four arm positions designed to reach all areas of the body without straining hands, wrists and arms. Theragun also provides a wellness app, which integrates with Apple Health and Google Fit to suggest guided routines that can be sent to your device via Bluetooth. £549, theragun.com

Work out with a clean conscience using the 42 Birds Cork Yoga Mat. It is made from at least 50% recycled materials and is free of PVC, plasticisers and latex.

With a 5mm thickness, the mat is comfortable and can easily be rolled up and transported. It is also 100% recyclable. £52, freepeople.com

Lumen

The Lumen is a portable hand-held device to “hack your metabolism”. You blow into the gadget and its carbon dioxide sensors determine whether your body is using fats or carbohydrates as a source of energy. Knowing that can help you decide what and when to eat to burn fat and enhance your workouts. The device links to an app to track daily metabolic activity and its effects on sleep, exercise and nutrition. £299, lumen.me

Philips Air Purifier Series 3000i

Cleanse the air in your home with the Philips Air Purifier Series 3000i. The device has a three-layer filter to remove airborne allergens and pollution trapped indoors. The Smart Air scans the air 1,000 times per second to detect impurities, and the 360˚ airflow enables fast cleaning in large spaces. The digital display reveals your indoor air-quality levels and can be dimmed in sleep mode. £450, philips.co.uk

Stone Diffuser

Best-selling diffuser company Vitruvi has teamed up with Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow’s wellness brand, to deliver this elegant Stone Diffuser. With a matte ceramic finish, it makes for a classy bit of decor while gently scenting your room with an essential oil of your choice.
