With the workout trend refusing to roll over and die, you are left with three options: 1) to jump on the trend and sign up to a gym that you can’t afford that is full of beautiful people that make you hate yourself, 2) sign up to a gym you can afford where stray dogs sleep on the equipment or 3) work out in the comfort of your own home, in your pants surrounded by last night’s beer cans and take away boxes, free of judgment. The Bowflex SelectTech 552i Dumbbells are good place to start building your home gym.

The Gtech Pro is Gtech’s first bagged vacuum cleaner with cordless design. It comes with four attachments, the Power floor head, Power brush, Dusting brush and Crevice tool, as well as 2 replacement bags. The bag helps to keep hygienic and dust free when maintaining your vacuum but will incur additional cost to replace them (£9.99 for a pack of 10), with the average household using between 4-8 bags a year. The bag will typically hold 1.5lt, which means you should be emptying it less than the bag free counterparts.

To ensure you are always ready for any eventuality, both at home and on the move, Spurcyle has got you covered.
