Ideal for small spaces (read: our bedroom), they're an eco-conscious and design-forward alternative to ten-a-penny plastic gear. Plus you can polish your eco-halo and your abs at the same time. Win, win.

Gym Dumbbells White Marble 8.Kilo Piece by And Jacob

Wolf & Badger

So these may be the bougiest dumbbells we've ever pumped. Certainly not ones to drop on your tootsies, but And Jacob's made-from-marble dumbbells are also a friendlier alternative to the plastic-coated versions we've used before. Although it's not often touted as a sustainable material, marble actually ranks quite highly in the green stakes thanks to the fact it's carved, not created. Fallen off your fitness game? We shouldn't say it but they make great bookends. Jane Fonda would not approve.

Venum Elite Boxing Gloves in White/ Black

Sugar Ray’s

Since we've switched Netflix binging for BLOKtv workout marathons, we've developed a passion for punching things. The air, mainly. Upping our workout game (and feeling pretty profesh in the process) are these elite (yes, that's how we're describing our left hook now) gloves crafted from a specialist Skintex leather - not a leather at all but a vinyl alternative making it vegan-friendly and a slightly more planet-positive pick.
