The New Year is upon us and, for many of us, it heralds a new drive to get fit.
But if the prospect of rigorous exercise fills you with a faint sense of dread (we get it), then we’re here to try and get you more relaxed than a session of Yin.
From exercise bikes to health trackers, we’ve picked out the most useful tech to help make exercising in 2023 a sheer pleasure!
Check out our choices below.
Original Peloton Bike
For more than just cycling (Picture: Amazon)
Might as well start with the big one, right?
Once upon a time, Peloton exercise bikes were there to help you cycle, and that was about it.
Nowadays, though, Peloton is offering a seemingly endless list of features and extras.
For one thing, Peloton’s famous training classes no longer cover just cycling, but include strength training and yoga.
The bike’s software also features competitive training games such as singing and dancing challenges (!).
Fitbit Charge 5
Like Peloton, Fitbit is another tech brand that’s well-known and well-established, but is continuing to expand what its products offer.
There’s scarcely a health metric that the Fitbit Charge 5 can’t track, including the likes of menstrual health and sleep quality.
It also offers extraordinarily useful and varied extras, including stress management tools!
P100 Folding Treadmill
Perfect for smaller homes (Picture: Muscle Squad)
As tempting as home treadmills and exercise bikes are, their size and bulk can be off-putting if you live somewhere that lacks space.
The P100 Folding Treadmill tries to solve this problem by being extraordinarily compact, folding flat for easy storage.
It’s also great value for money, especially now that Muscle Squad have reduced its price by £100.
Grodex Portable Double End Bag Mechanism

As 2023 fitness products go, the Grodex Portable Double End Bag Mechanism is relatively low-tech. But because of its ingenious and innovative design, it still qualifies!
It’s been specially designed to help you practice boxing reflexes and get fit while doing so.
The elasticised back and forth of the central ball means that the tool integrates defensive movements as well, meaning that you can simulate the total workout that you’d get by competing in the ring, without racking up the bruises.
NUTRiBULLET 600 Series
Nutrition? You’re crushing it (Picture: Amazon)
Some products on this list are notable for their technical intricacy or the sophistication of their software, or for their elegant design.
The NUTRiBULLET 600 Series is notable for its power.
While most other blenders are liable to choke up on bits of apple or carrot, the NUTRiBULLET 600 Series simply will not flinch, guaranteeing you’ll be able to make whatever smoothie is in fashion or you just happen to fancy.
It comes with attachable cups both big and small, so you can make enough smoothie for friends, too!
LARQ Bottle Movement PureVis
Ultralight and ultra-clean (Picture: LARQ)
It’s oh so easy to let your water bottle get a little bit disgusting over time. But LARQ have an ingenious fix.
This bottle uses UV-C LED to self-purify, cleaning itself and removing bacteria and viruses all without you having to worry about washing it out properly.
The bottle is also ultralight, making it perfectly portable.
Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair
Ready for an at-work workout? (Picture: FlexiSpot)
We all know how tricky it can be to fit exercise in around a busy work life.
But the FlexiSpot chair allows you to burn off calories while staying at your desk, as you simulate walking and even cycling.
It’s also both extremely comfortable and extremely secure – so there’s no risk that you’ll go flying backwards while attempting to type emails and enjoy a mini hike at the same time.
The New Year is here and it’s time to get fit.
