2. Speedo Aquabeat 2.0

£100, speedo.co.uk

Jump in the pool and swim along to your favourite songs ("Deeply Dippy" perhaps?) with Speedo's new underwater MP3 player. It floats as well, just in case.

4. Hotpants

£44.99 zaggora.com

These high-tech hotpants help you lose that cellulate and tone up. They use bio-ceramic material to reflect warmth back at the body for better circulation.

5. K-Swiss Blade Light Jetster

£49.99, jjbsports.com

A new innovation for gym shoes is to have blades that bend with the movement of your foot rather than solid rubber soles. These K-Swiss shoes are chunky, but comfy.

6. Garmin Forerunner 610

This is the buddy everyone wants with them on their run. Just give it a tap as you set off and it will track your location, heart rate, calorie burn and pace.

£99.99, decathlon.co.uk

Don't think you can fit a big old exercise bench in your bedroom? Think again. The Fitness Cube converts from a diddy box into a full bench in minutes.

Not only do these headphones come with a lifetime warranty against sweat damage, they can also link with your smartphone.
