  • The 7 Best Electric Skateboards on The Market

    Not long ago, the rage was for skateboards. Sleek, excellent design, easy to use, and free after your first purchase. Good alternative for gasoline driven cars and the more eco-friendly stock among us.  Many of us thought that would be the long and short of the fad. Well,  the skateboard has survived the wishes of those who didn't like it too well and fast-forward to 2018, the manual, feet-propelled skateboard is gradually being replaced by electric, battery-powered skateboards that give you a richer boarding experience with as little of your energy as possible. Electric skateboards have changed, and keep changing the world of rideable technology, bringing cool experiences to us that no one would have imagined a few years back. In as little space as possible, most of them combine the basic skateboard, sufficient energy to provide you with a powered ride for nearly an hour, autonomous and fine-tuned braking systems, and water resistance to ensure you get the best bang for your buck. And with the wide variety of amazing skateboards on the market, waiting to catch your fancy (and your wallet) c the appropriate skateboard to suit your lifestyle and your wallet size may be a bit of a hassle. Here on this list, we set out to present you with the overall best-performing skateboards across all relevant verticals such as board versatility, pricing, total comfort, battery life, and the most pleasing design. Hold on tight; our ride begins!

Sports & Outdoors Reviews

Exercise is vitally important for many reasons; our health, our fitness, our mental well-being and social skills. Some people are naturally more sporty than others but you don’t have to run marathons every month to be fit and enjoy participating in sports. 

There are many different kinds of sports; from group sports to singular sports, competitive sports to ‘just for fun’ sports, there are plenty to choose from. Physical education is a mandatory lesson in schools for good reason, it ensures that children, from a young age, are familiar with the idea of sport and fitness, and have a choice of different sports and find which they really enjoy - hopefully continuing to participate in sports as they grow older. 

Only Reviews has a number of product reviews to help you to get back into sports or make the most of fitness. From sports equipment reviews to clothing reviews, discover how Only Reviews can help you to purchase sports products with real reviews from real people. 


Sports Equipment Reviews

Finding the right sports equipment is easy. There are plenty of sports shops on the high street and online that offer a wide range of sporting and fitness equipment. From weighted equipment such as dumbbells and ankle weights to skipping ropes and yoga mats, fitness accessories can help you to achieve the best results possible. 

If you enjoy gym workouts but hate the inconvenience of getting to the gym, waiting for the machines and paying for a membership fee then you may want to buy gym machinery for your home. Whether you want a running machine in the garage or to turn your spare room into a full gym – then you’ll need to purchase gym machinery. This kind of gym equipment can be very expensive, but it is definitely worth it if you go to the gym a lot. When you purchase gym machinery, you need to purchase from a well-established brand or from a reputable seller who offers insurance. It is important to read reviews when you are buying sports equipment, Only Reviews has tons of great sport product reviews to help you make your decision. 


Exercising Outside Tips 

There is nothing better than going for a run on a fresh morning but there is so much more you can do with exercising outside. 

Enjoy group outdoor workout classes, play a team sport such as football or netball or take a mat and do a home workout in your local park. Exercising outdoors is perfect for summer months as it allows you to skip the monthly gym membership fee and just enjoy the outdoors as long as you have some equipment or a phone to watch a workout video that you can follow. 

Its key to always dress for the weather, you may be warm once you warm up but if its cold outside you still need to cover up to protect your skin. 


Fitness Clothing 

There are so many options when it comes to workout clothing, from the different styles to materials, there really is something for every type of workout. 

If it’s winter and you’re planning on doing an outdoor workout then you should opt for multiple layers that you can easily remove the warmer you get. When it feels really cold outside, you’ll often wear heavy layers such as hoodies and sweatpants but your body will quickly warm during exercise and the heavy clothing may obstruct your workout. For winter workouts you should opt for a polypropylene base layer to help ward away the sweat and have a t-shirt and a workout jacket to ward off the chilly air.  

For summer workouts, light fabrics are best. So, opting for loose-fitting cottons is ideal as they let your body breathe. Sports bras can be really tough to get right, there are so many variations and you don’t know how well they work until you try them; which is often too late. When buying a sports bra, its often advised to get properly measured beforehand and always check out reviews so you know from other women how well they perform. 

With so many options, it’s always advised you get the opinions of other people before you buy fitness clothing and workout gear. Check out some of the great clothing reviews from Only Reviews before making any purchases.  


Fitness Technology Reviews 

Today, you can track every movement and goal in various fitness apps on your phone or by a smartwatch. This allows you to keep an eye on your fitness levels, monitor your heart rate and keep track of calories burned during workouts. 

There are a number of fitness gadgets that will change how you work out, including the Fitbit; a wearable device, a smart vest; which monitors your workouts and movement giving you real-time analysis and fit apps which allow you to set goals and input your workouts.
