Me and my Tuffit
Here’s what our first Tuffit owner, Joanne from Warrington, made of her purchase.
You’re the owner of the first ever Tuffit to be sold – how does it feel?!
The Tuffit has been launched at the perfect time for me in my own personal fitness journey so it feels great – I really think it will really complement the other activities I do.
What’s your relationship with fitness?
We’re becoming re-acquainted at the moment! Working pretty much full time with 2 children, both at primary school, has made finding the time to keep fit a real challenge over the last few years – to be honest, it’s not been a priority. However, I’ve been very conscious that I encourage the kids to be active and should set a better example! So I started running a few months’ ago – that felt like the easiest thing to fit in because I can just go straight out from home as and when. I’ve really noticed how much better and more energetic I feel as a result.
What do you like about the Tuffit?
Lots! It fits neatly and discretely into the lounge (doubling as a handy extra seat!) so it’s right there when I want to use it – I’d never make it out to the gym so this just perfect. For something so small it’s incredibly versatile – so far I’ve mainly used it to complement my running – and daily step-counting! – with toning exercises, but if I’ve not managed to get out for a run, then I’ve used it for some cardio activity. Not only can I use it for whatever I want to do, but I can build on that too, simply by increasing the number of repetitions or sets – so I can see how it can grow with me.
There are so many different programmes that I can’t see me getting bored (which is what happened when I tried exercise DVDs). I’m already starting to remember how to do some of the exercises without referring to the book or website, which means I can spend the time exercising catching up on TV programmes I’ve missed – brilliant!
What’s your favourite programme so far and why?
I love using the Core Curve for programmes, as well as using the resistance bands for upper body toning with programmes like Works a ChARM – I’ve not really done anything like that at home before.
What’s your fitness goal?
Very simply that keeping fit becomes a habit that I enjoy. For me that means variety and convenience are critical. I’m also debating entering a 10km run later this year – it will be well over 10 years since I last did one so this would be a real challenge!
