2. Speedo Aquabeat 2.0

£100, speedo.co.uk

Get in shape in the comfort of your living room with this fitness bundle for the Wii. The balance board accessory allows for virtual skateboarding and kung-fu.

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.

This pack of fitness goodies tracks your heart rate, jogging pace and distance covered, while the digital fitness instructor gives pointers.

8. Fitness Cube

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.

From £79.99, firebox.com

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

10. Zumba Fitness Kit
