We want to see YOUR weirdest, wackiest and most wonderful pieces of lockdown exercise equipment that you created and used during the various lockdowns of 2020 and 2021!
We’re On The Hunt For The UK’s Wackiest DIY Lockdown Workout Equipment! The 2020 year will forever be known as the year that the nation (and the world) went into lockdown.
While it was a time that some people understandably took a step back from exercise, having been told to stay away from the gyms and 2m or more away from anyone outside of their household, for others the pandemic made them step their workouts up a notch. Some people took that one hour of daily exercise rule as a direct instruction or order!
With gyms off limits, many were forced to get creative with what equipment they used for their workouts, as well as where they exercised and how.
Back in March when the pandemic really took hold and we were forced into lockdown, there was a mad rush for suitable home workout equipment; we saw an over 300% rise in sales, with a specific interest for a gym equipment.
This meant that not everybody was able to get their hands on the pieces of equipment they wanted, which led to a phenomenon of people creating their own workout equipment from items they had lying about their homes. This has inspired us to hunt to find the weirdest, wackiest and most innovative pieces of lockdown equipment created, and we want YOU to enter yours.
We’re not just asking for your pictures, though. The winner – who we think has been the most creative – will win the Viavito Satori exercise bike worth £344.99, so that they never have to bodge a workout again!
Email your name, address and contact number to DIY@sweatband.com, along with attached images of your DIY fitness equipment creations and tell us a bit about your invention.
