Don’t be without these top fitness and activity-inspired gifts this Father’s Day.

With Father’s Day coming up this Sunday, now is the perfect time to casually leave this page open in front of your loves ones if they need a little ‘great gift’ inspiration…

SIXPAD’s Abs Fit 2

An innovative way for dads to tone up, improve muscular strength and build muscle. The product is hallmarked by over 40 years of research, with users achieving a 12 per cent improvement in abdominal muscle size after eight weeks alongside a balanced diet and exercise in a recent study (with an 8 per cent improvement seen after just four weeks).

It works by transmitting external electrical stimuli to the muscles in the body, causing them to contract and relax just as they would during exercise. Each device can now be paired up via Bluetooth to a SIXPAD training app on your phone, which allows users to visualise their muscle training from start to finish with the ability to increase and decrease their training settings.
