During the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people took precautionary measures whenever they go out. However, many opted to spend more time at home to avoid contracting the deadly virus. During times like these, home fitness and Do-It-Yourself (DIY) endeavors are two of the best forms of activities that families to do together. These activities not only help people to stay physically active and improve their immunity but also add fun and excitement to life at home.
“Taiwan is a shining example of how to successfully contain COVID-19. Such success is undoubtedly attributed to the cooperation of all citizens and industries, and the effective execution of stay-at-home self-isolation measures. We are more than happy to share how Taiwan implements stay-at-home self-isolation best practices to the rest of the world and engage in any international cooperation that can benefit other nations.” said Taiwan’s Bureau of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) Deputy Director General Guann-Jyh Lee.
In addition to home workouts even without the use of equipment, exercise equipment can also be used to increase training intensity and enjoyment. Doctors also recommend that when people exercise at home, they should pay attention to ventilation in their exercise space. Other advice includes making sure to stay warm after sweating and stay hydrated by drinking water to maintain better health and fend off disease.
During a virtual press conference with the media held recently, Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) Executive Vice President Simon Wang also noted that they broke spatial limitations during the press conference. Part of the conference took place at individual brand headquarters to provide a feeling that event attendees actually visited the companies in person.
Taiwan Excellence, which represents the “best of the best” of everything made in Taiwan, has selected three award-winning companies – Strength Master, Victory, and the AROFLY – to demonstrate the latest home exercise trends in terms of cardiopulmonary, muscle strength, and intelligence benefits.
The cardiopulmonary function is fundamental to good health. Strength Master’s cycle boxer has an entire set of built-in interactive boxing games that can simultaneously train brain response and improve cardiopulmonary function. This adds more fun to boxing alone! Muscle strength training not only improves your physique but also helps increase immunity.
Victory, on the other hand, invited 2008 Olympics Weightlifting silver medal winner Ying-Chi Lu to do weight training on Victory’s shock-absorbing mat. This mat significantly reduces 37% of the vibration and 26% of the noise while lifting barbells. So, no need to worry about bothering the children or neighbors while doing weight training at home.
And what if you love cycling but cannot go out due to the lockdown in your country? The AROFLY used smart technology to move cycling into the home. Power analysis is used to display cadence, speed, and heart rate so that anyone can train on their bike smartly at home and also burn fat effectively.
To fight boredom, home fitness is not the only option. Therapeutic craftwork and parent-child interaction are also trending upwards. According to domestic e-commerce vendors, the global pandemic has increased the sales of home living products by about 20%.
Doing DIY activities together can bring parents and kids closer to each other as well as making the home a happier and brighter place. and Taiwan Excellence has many companies fit for this purpose. For example, suction cup hooks in colorful macaroon colors from FECA, a patented vacuum technology made in Taiwan, can safely and easily change the look of the kitchen or bathroom, even moods, without the use of drills or nails. Also, teach children the importance of storage by using the VAGO vacuum compressor to minimize the size of all winter clothing. During the weekends, CSPS’s multi-function adjustable height roasting oven offers great help for home BBQ events, a great way to celebrate Taiwan's zero new coronavirus cases!
Taiwan Excellence is collaborating with these six major brands to showcase to the world the growing “stay-at-home economy” by using intelligence and creativity. Taiwan’s products have demonstrated their cutting-edge qualities in this global fight against the pandemic and have helped people create a better home life even in trying and difficult circumstances.
