We are all looking for more ways to keep fit as we stay in our homes during the 2020 pandemic.
With gyms closed, it’s time to gear up our home workout areas.
Here are some interesting new products to help you keep fit while you stay inside your dwelling.

The Stealth Body app is free, and includes two games “Stealth Speed Gliding” and “Galaxy Adventure” available on both Android and iOS smartphones. It tracks your daily progress, includes a worldwide leaderboard, and you can create challenges with friends and family. No Subscription Required!
You play games while you plank, and use the 360 motion to help you play the game! Stealth provides a superior multi-directional dynamic exercise experience that allows you to move at multiple angles while playing innovative fitness games on your phone.
You can get a strong core and back in under three minutes a day. Stealth Plankster uses your core strength to control the action on your mobile phone screen, making static exercises like the plank more engaging — for your muscles and your brain.
