Justin Norris, co-founder of high-intensity, low-impact fitness program the LIT Method understands how one’s daily demands can make running to a workout class difficult at times, which is why the brand includes a physical workout center and on-demand option — the latter of which includes an at-home equipment kit.
“I believe it’s important to have workout gear at home so you always have the ability to workout regardless of your schedule. Life can get hectic and it can become difficult to make time for a workout. However, by keeping equipment at home it allows you to have the freedom and flexibility to work out in the comfort of your home and on your own time,” Norris says.
Investing in the right yoga mat is certainly worthwhile and benefits the grip. Despite its name, yoga mats are more like multi-purpose mats in that they can be used for a variety of fitness programs and are also lightweight and easy to cart around.
“You can always perform HIIT and core exercises on your mat whenever you have time,” says Norris.
When it comes to physical therapy, resistance bands are a great choice. Research has proven that resistance band exercises grow your muscles and tone them at the same time.
“Our ‘LIT Kit‘ comes with all the equipment to complete a high-intensity, low-impact workout from the comfort of your home,” says Norris. “Our kit includes resistance bands for your upper body, loop bands for your lower body, and a foam roller for recovery. […] In addition to being extremely effective, resistance bands can be used to perform a variety of exercises.”
People might consider foam roller as a piece of unnecessary equipment in a workout routine but the reality is quite different. This one might be a more unexpected necessity.
“A foam roller is crucial to have at home, as recovery is just as important as the workout. Yes, the small but mighty cylindrical tool helps relieve tension in the muscles while also lengthening them. So they not only assist in recovery but also allows you to gain some flexibility.” says Norris.
