fitbit watchstrap for gardening

Dig your way to fitness

By working out in your garden you get a win win win! Lovely fresh flowers for your home, a great workout and healthy veg. Gardening has the added bonus of the feel good factor - possibly to do with the Vitamin B12 found in the soil, but you don't want that on your watchstrap, so opting for a soft silicone strap will mean you can easily clean it off!

Our great value watchstraps also mean you can get fresh new ones when you need them.

So just how many calories can you burn off during a session in the garden or on the allotment? 

Burn calories not electricity

If you ditch the electric mower, use hand tools wherever possible as these really do target areas - shears for toning up those arms and digging for a great all round workout. Be careful to make sure you work your body and don't injure yourself - watch your form to get the very best out of the activity.

Follow safe moving  and handling, don't lift anything too heavy, keep you back straight and bend your knees. Keep the weight close to your body. Make sure you don't overstretch and take your time to make sure you are doing it safely.

Depending on the level of intensity, turning your compost heap or digging over the beds can burn up to 300 calories an hour. Raking the lawn is an excellent upper body workout and picking up leaves and weeding are good opportunities to get some squats into your day.
