Fitness accessories for endurance training.
Whether floor protection mats, heart rate monitors, weight cuffs or vario cranks - the right fitness accessories can make your endurance training safer, more effective or more varied.
Why do I need a floor protection mat?
A floor protection mat provides a safe base for your fitness equipment. It protects carpets, parquet or stone floors, ensures a non-slip workout and also helps to reduce noise. Floor protection mats are available in different versions and sizes. As a puzzle mat, like our FINNLO by HAMMER floor protection mat puzzle mat, it can be flexibly put together and can therefore also cover larger areas.
You can find floor protection mats made of rubber, in walnut look or wood look in the following sizes:
- 70 x 30 cm
- 70 x 120 cm
- 120 x 60 cm
- 160 x 85 cm
- 185 x 120 cm
- 200 x 100 cm
- 240 x 100 cm
For particularly heavy endurance equipment we recommend our HAMMER professional floor protection mat:
- Thickness of 2.5 cm for perfect noise and vibration damping
- Durable material (EVA)
- 6-piece set-up size (L x W x H): 156 x 104 x 2.5 cm
- Set-up size 2-piece (L x W x H): 104 x 52 x 2.5 cm
Why should I train with a chest strap heart rate monitor?
Since the hand pulse sensors are only a guide, a chest strap is a good accessory. With the help of a chest strap heart rate monitor, the pulse is visible and controllable on any fitness equipment with an integrated pulse receiver. The small fitness accessory is the ideal training companion for beginners and advanced exercisers to get to know their personal stress and performance level better and to individually adapt their endurance training.
Our chest strap heart rate monitors offer:
- Long range
- Accurate heart rate monitoring
- Uncoded data transmission
- Individually adjustable size
How heavy are weight cuffs?
Weight cuffs intensify your endurance training. You can easily attach them to your wrists or ankles with Velcro. Cuffs filled with sand, such as our HAMMER weight cuffs, adapt to every joint shape.
Available from us in 0.5 kg or 0.75 kg.
- Fits wrists and ankles
- Filled with sand
- Neoprene and lycra material for maximum wearing comfort
What are vario cranks?
Vario cranks are orthopaedic aids for exercising on an ergometer or exercise bike. They are the ideal training accessory after injuries, surgery or joint changes. With an adjustable crank radius, they enable crank length adjustment in the case of reduced flexion and extension of knee joints.
Our Variocranks are:
- Flexible adjustability from 30 - 170 mm
- Suitable for Varon and Exum models
- Also suitable for continuous use
Training with the Variocrank can lead to the following results:
- Strengthening of the leg muscles
- Promotion of joint mobilisation
- Positive effects on the cardiovascular system
Regular endurance training not only improves your performance, but also stimulates your fat metabolism, strengthens your immune system and makes for more relaxation and friends in everyday life.
