Workout mat and weights
Get Fit with Mel B is out now in North America, but any UK-based readers with one eye on making the most of their fitness experience might want to check out these performance-enhancing accessories available from Blaze.
Officially endorsed by both Mel B and Fitness First, the BLAZE Fitness First Wrist & Ankle weights are pretty self-explanatory, but have the advantage of being securely fastened to your wrists and ankles, so there's no need to hold anything in your hands. The BLAZE Fitness First Workout Mat is... well, just a soft mat really.
Both accessories will be available this month priced at £9.99 each. Get Fit with Mel B is released for PS3 this Friday, November 5th.

BLAZE team up with Mel B and Fitness First to bring new accessories to the Xbox Kinect, PS3 Move and Wii
Doncaster, UK – 01/11/2010
Leading video game accessory manufacturer BLAZE have announced their latest Fitness First licensed products. Endorsed by healthy lifestyle advocate and global superstar Mel B, the BLAZE Fitness First Wrist & Ankle weights, and the BLAZE Fitness First Workout Mat, provide extra resistance, comfort and safety to your Xbox 360 Kinect, PS3 Move and Nintendo Wii exercise sessions.
This Christmas will see the release of the latest Xbox 360 Kinect and PS3 Move gaming platforms, allowing player focused interactivity for all console owners. Interactive fitness and sporting titles first seen on the Nintendo Wii are still gaining popularity at a staggering rate, and this is set to continue on a multi platform basis, with these latest innovations from Microsoft and Sony.
The New BLAZE wrist and ankle weights are specifically designed to ensure you get 100% out of your Xbox 360 Kinect, PS3 Move and Wii workout, giving you the potential to work harder with every single movement of your arms or legs. The Wrist weights have been developed with the help of fitness and health experts Fitness First, to weigh approximately 520 grams each, which was found to be the perfect weight to add resistance, without being too heavy, leading you to burn out before your session is complete.
The BLAZE Fitness First Wrist and Ankle Weights fit securely and comfortably to your wrists or ankles, allowing you to zone in on the area of your body that you wish to target. Whether you go for arms and upper body exercise, or if you want to focus on legwork, the weights can be easily changed over to fit on your wrists or ankles using the quick release velcro system.
Much research has gone into the materials from which the weights are made, resulting in the wrist and ankle weights being constructed from a soft, cushioned fabric which after a few minutes use, will feel like an extension of your body.
With the weights securely strapped around your wrists or ankles, this leaves your hands totally free to use the Kinect, Move and Wii controllers, enabling you to navigate the game menu, a luxury which is not usually possible using regular dumbbell style weights.
Of course, the BLAZE Fitness First Wrist and Ankle Weights can be used in any workout situation, whether at home in front of the latest interactive fitness game, or by strapping them on before your regular jog to the pub!
The New BLAZE Fitness First Workout Mat has been designed to give you the confidence to work out effectively without the fear of slippage or movement, whilst using the Xbox 360 Kinect, PS3 Move and Nintendo Wii Consoles. The Workout Mat gives you a non-slip, shock free station, to undertake your exercise routine in complete comfort and safety,
The Workout Mat is the perfect width and length to give you the room to move and exercise effectively, whilst the cushioned material absorbs impact, taking the knocks and bumps out of your fitness routine.
Again, the BLAZE Fitness First Workout Mat can be used in many other aspects of your exercise plan, providing a soft and safe platform to stabilize your movements.
