The Fit List: Healthy snacks, fitness gear and wellness apps

This week’s Fit List has a mix of wellness and fitness gear to help you feel more balanced.

If you’re feeling stressed out, we’ve got soothing smelling salts, scented candles and even a mental wellness app to help you.

Meanwhile you can give your health a boost with a nutritious breakfast cereal or an exercise plan for mums-to-be.

Plus there’s ultra-inclusive workout gear and a yoga mat with an eco conscience.

The Bump Plan

The launch of Hollie Grant’s The Bump Plan means that pre and postnatal women can now exercise in safe hands.

The plan can begin at any stage of your pregnancy and is a fitness and wellbeing guide including everything from workouts and diastasis and prolapse management to breast and bottle-feeding support.

Seven-day free trial; £35 per month thereafter

Wuufly yoga mats

The detail in Wuufly yoga mats is amazing and we love this Ocean Dream mat in support of Sea Shepherd UK – the design aims to bring awareness of the importance of conserving our oceans and their habitat.

Mats are non-slip, antibacterial and mould proof.
