Best Stationary Bike: NEXGIM Smart Exercise Bike

NEXGIM Smart Exercise Bike

If you keep up with fitness trends, you've definitely come across Instagram posts and stories of people attending Spin class. Spin class is the latest fitness trend around town with a dedicated following in Singapore. Its essentially indoor cycling focused on endurance, strength and interval training using a stationary exercise bicycle with a weighted flywheel in a class setting. However, with the pandemic ongoing why not take your spin class at home? 

That's where the NEXGIM Smart Exercise Bike comes in handy with its interactive cycling sessions. The bike is engineered to be easy-to-use and reliable when it comes to at-home cycling due to mainly 2 key features: its' innovative motor design and its' multi control dial.

Best Treadmill: Amazfit AirRun Smart Treadmill

Amafit AirRun Smart Treadmill

Running outdoors is a great way to enjoy the scenery but if you're looking for more consistent and stable exercise, the treadmill is the way to go. Unlike most conventional treadmills on the market, the Amazfit AirRun offers something truly unique.

The Amazfit AirRun transforms at-home running into fun and interactive sport. Its equipped with Bluetooth capabilities which allows you to connect it to virtual worlds on Zwift and take your run online with the running community.

The simulated environment enabled by Zwift keeps you motivated and energised to reach your fitness goals along with the online running community that helps to pace and push you to achieve new personal bests. The Amazfit AirRun also comes with structured workouts and trainings so you'll feel like you have your own personal trainer.

Enjoy the Outdoors, Indoors. 

The Amazfit AirRun was engineered to make indoor running as natural as the outdoors. A couple of key features are built into the treadmill to make running a smooth and enjoyable experience at home.

Running Belt

Amafit AirRun Smart Treadmill

The Amazfit AirRun is designed with an extra-wide pure running belt of 500mm and a running belt length of 1300mm, all supplemented by a sunken motor design to give you the freedom and space you need to run comfortably. The anti-slip and wear-resistant diamond-pattern running belt and soft rubber edge strips provide you with a more comfortable footfall and higher safety. This eliminates the rigid and artificial feeling you get from running on most treadmills and instead incorporates the stability and openness of outdoor running.

Running Board

Amafit AirRun Smart Treadmill

The Amazfit AirRun has eight shock-absorbers that are installed between the running board and the mainframe to achieve a smooth footfall without feeling too hard or soft, or feeling the recoil force and secondary recoil force. This helps protect your knees in the long term and reduce the noise even at high speeds, keeping you safe from noise complaints. 

Running Speed with Safety Mechanisms

Amafit AirRun Smart Treadmill

Easily control the Amazfit AirRun to go from 1km/h to 15km/h. Along with the speed control, there is also an emergency stop cord and a sudden slow down button if you find yourself in trouble while running. The anti-slip rubber belt helps make sure you do not slip in the process of quick speed changes in order to prevent yourself from getting hurt.

Designed With Usability In Mind

Amafit AirRun Smart Treadmill

You won't typically find treadmills in home gym set ups due to their clunky size which often leads most people to run outdoors instead. However, the Amazfit AirRun is designed to be compact and storage friendly and hence can be completely folded in 5 seconds to reclaim 80% of your space. 

You could go as far as to say that the Amazfit AirRun doubles as a speaker, with two built-in JBL custom full-range speakers with fast transient response and ultra-low distortion, providing you superior sound quality.With the Amazfit AirRun, you can truly immerse yourself in your favourite workout jams without the discomfort of sweaty or loose-fitting earphones.

We know how hard it can be hard to get hooked on a treadmill running programme, but with the unique immersive features that the Amazfit AirRun has to offer we're positive it'll make a great addition to your home fitness set up.
