2022 has officially begun—have you made any New Year’s resolutions? The new year is a chance for a fresh start or to recommit to personal goals you might have lost track of in the midst of a crazy year. New Year’s resolutions come in many forms, whether you’re looking to get healthier, learn a new skill or something else altogether. No matter how you’re trying to better yourself in 2022, Abt is here to help. Check out our product recommendations below for all kinds of New Year’s resolutions:
The Resolution: Eat Your Greens (And Oranges And Reds And…)
Choosing to lead a healthier lifestyle is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions and for good reason. Living longer and having more energy sound like a great goal to have. If you’re someone who struggles to eat a healthy, balanced diet, why not try a juicer? You can blend together your favorite fruit with a handful of something green to get plenty of vitamins to start the day or supplement a meal. We love the Breville Fountain Juicer Plus for its great design and functionality. The included 1 liter juice jug makes it easy to pour your creation into a glass or split it with your spouse or roommate. When you’re done, everything can go in the dishwasher for easy cleanup. The extra-wide 3″ chute eliminates the need to pre-cut your fruits and veggies, too.
If you’re looking for a more high-end option, we also love the Kuvings Evo820 Slow Juicer. The biggest selling point of this juicer is how quiet it is, making it the perfect choice if you have roommates or a baby you don’t want to wake in the morning. There are several attachments including a smoothie strainer and a blank strainer so you can enjoy a multitude of drinkables. You can even use this juicer to make nut milks at home, which saves you money and gives you control over what goes in your body. You’ll also get a special cleaning tool and a recipe book with your purchase; that way, you can easily use your juicer every day and try new interesting combinations to get more nutrients in your diet.
The Resolution: Move Your Body
Being active is important. Whether or not weight loss is something you’re looking to achieve, getting stronger and improving your cardiovascular health have benefits for everyone. Our arsenal of fitness equipment has everything you need to create a home gym that works for you. If you’re a beginner, a treadmill is a great place to start—all you have to do is walk. We love this Pro-Form Carbon T7 treadmill because it features the brand’s SpaceSaver® Design so you can fold up the equipment when you’re done. That way, if you don’t have the space for a designated home gym, you can still get a great workout while keeping your home uncluttered. You’ll get a free 30-day trial to the iFit Family Membership so you can enjoy a variety of classes and training sessions, which is great for both beginners or fitness buffs who want to switch it up.
Maybe you’re more advanced or looking for something different. In that case, we think a rower is a great addition to your home gym. Go for the best of the best with this total-body rower from NordicTrack. Its interactive screen turns your home into a high-end gym complete with fun and challenging interactive fitness classes. A rower works your arms and your legs for an all-over burn you’ll feel in no time. This particular machine from NordicTrack features 26 different resistance levels so you can turn it down for fast-paced cardio sessions or crank it up for some strength training. Thanks to its long, thin shape, this rower is also easy to move out of the way if needed and can even fold up if your storage space is minimal.
The Resolution: See The World
Are you feeling stuck at home? Maybe there’s a national landmark that’s been on your bucket list for years. It’s time to make it happen! Whether on a plane or by car, seeing new places is one of our favorite resolutions. If you’re taking a road trip, having a GPS as backup will give you peace of mind. The Apple Watch Series 7 has built-in GPS to keep you on the right path whether you’re on the road or exploring a national park. It also comes in several colors so you can pick your favorite. The latest iteration of the Apple Watch also features its most advanced display yet, making it easy for you to know where you’re going and keep in touch with others when you’re on the road.
Maybe you’re more the jet-setting type. Lucky for you, Abt’s TUMI boutique has stunning, high-quality luggage that can withstand being tossed around baggage claim. The TUMI Alpha 3 is a great choice because it’s small enough to be a carry-on but can also be used if you’re a light packer or taking a shorter trip. The black body with gold hardware looks distinctly luxurious and the included garment sleeve is great to store your formal attire. The built-in lock and USB port make it easy to stay safe and keep your possessions secure. You’ll have this suitcase for hundreds of adventures thanks to TUMI’s signature ballistic nylon that offers superior durability.
The Resolution: Expand Your Culinary Horizons
It’s easy to fall into a routine—we’re all busy. Sometimes that routine means making the same things for dinner week in and week out. When was the last time you looked up a new recipe? (Hint: we have tons of recipes on our blog.) Maybe your culinary skills are limited and you want to learn a new cooking technique. If this sounds like you, we have just the thing. Why not try sous vide? This French cooking technique involves vacuum sealing your food and cooking it in water at a precise, controlled temperature. It’s a healthier way to cook that also provides even cooking, meaning steak is perfectly medium-rare and salmon is tender. We love the Anova Precision Cooker Nano because it’s specifically designed to help beginners achieve professional-quality results. Additionally, this Anova cooker has Bluetooth connectivity so you can monitor the cooking from your phone.
On the other hand, maybe you have plenty of gadgets and don’t want another. Is it finally time to replace those knives? If you’re looking to upgrade, you’re in luck. This Zwilling J.A. Henckels knife set has any knife you’d ever need. Each slot is labeled and self-sharpening so your knives are always ready to use. You’ll get a bread knife, a Santoku knife, two different paring knives and much more, all housed in an elegant stained wood knife block that looks great on your kitchen counter. You’ll also get eight serrated steak knives to use during mealtime. Every home chef needs great quality knives and we know this set will help you reach new culinary heights.
