Don Don Donki is more than sweet potatoes and Japanese goodies, it also has a section dedicated exclusively to fitness. We tried and tested some fitness products at Don Don Donki’s latest 100AM Mall outlet to find out how legit they are.
You already know all about Don Don Donki’s highly raved sweet potatoes, as well as the rows of shelves fully stocked with Japanese snacks. That’s why we visited Don Don Donki’s new store at 100AM Mall to check out all that good foodstuff. Beyond tasty treats, Don Don Donki also has a fitness section that carries a wide range of fitness products. From yoga mats to dumbbells, you can pretty much find everything you need there. Don’t be fooled by the quirky names of the products or the wild, creative graphics on the packaging – most of these fitness products are super legit. Here are the 10 best fitness products you can snag at Don Don Donki. Plus, they are all extremely portable for you to take your workouts anywhere.
1. Stretch Body Roller ($17.80)
This is a must-have for fitness junkies who work out every day. The Stretch Body Roller will be your go-to when your muscles feel sore and achy. Use it on your hamstrings, quads, calves and back to unknot tight muscles and speed up your recovery so that you’re all set for your next workoout. At this Don Don Donki outlet, they even come in different colours and designs.
2. Jyonetsu Kakaku Training Expander – Soft ($7.50)
No, this is not a baby’s teething toy or a dog’s chew toy. The Jyonetsu Kakau Training Expander works like a resistance band for your arms. It provides just the right amount of resistance for you to bid your arm flab goodbye in no time. Place it on your office desk to sneak in quick arm resistance workouts throughout the day.
3. The Inside of the Thigh Fit – Soft ($13.50)
This is another great fitness product fit for the office. You can use The Inside of the Thigh Fit while sitting at your desk to tone and sculpt your inner thighs while you work. Don’t let the simplicity of its mechanisms deceive you, after a couple of casual reps at the aisle of Don Don Donki, our inner thigh muscles were quivvvverrrrring.
4. Push-Up Bar ($14.50)
Using push-up bars add more challenge by increasing your range of motion for you to build muscles faster. Even if you can’t achieve regular push-ups, the bars still work with you dropping your knees to the ground. It is also great for those with wrist injuries as it keeps your joints in a neutral position. We like how they are super lightweight and stable.
5. Smart Roller – Heavy ($15.50)
Score toned and taut abdominal muscles in no time with this Smart Roller. The double-wheeled roller and non-slip grips provides maximum stability, ensuring proper form when you execute the exercises. We are not going to sugarcoat it – rolling outwards is tough but rolling back in is a whole new level of challenge. But hey, all the more reason for us to roll away and fire up those core muscles.
6. Balance Fighter ($32.50)
Get more bang for your Don Don Donki buck with the Balance Fighter as it comes in a set of two for you to try out even more variety of exercises. This is especially useful when it comes to recovery exercises for injured ankles. It also adds an element of challenge to exercises like squats or even to train your balance and stability when you do yoga poses on it.
7. Hurricane Twister ($23.50)
The Hurricane Twister reminds us of the exercise equipment at fitness corners. Guess what? You can have it right at home. The compact and portable design also makes it travel-friendly. We had lots of fun trying it out and can totally imagine ourselves grooving to upbeat workout tracks while using the Hurricane Twister.
8. La-VE Neck Massage Ball ($14.90)
Staring at the computer screen all day is bad news for your neck. It’s normal to find yourself groaning in agony as you attempt to relieve the tension in your neck at the end of the day. That’s why La-VE Neck Massage Ball is a dream come true for every office worker. It’s easy to use and it provides the right amount of force to ease the ache in your neck.
9. Fitness Tube – Super Hard ($17.50)
If you don’t have the time to head to the gym, the Fitness Tube is a resistance band suited for all your home-based strength training exercises. We like how it comes with handles to give you a good grip during your resistance training. From your back to your lower body, the possibilities are endless with this simple piece of fitness equipment.
10. Max Yawako Massage Ball ($21.50)
Treat yourself after a good workout with Max Yawako Massage Ball. It comes in a concave shape for you to rest the different parts of your body on it comfortably. We tried it on our backs and were amazed by how effective it was in loosening our tensed muscles.
