Summer is drawing to a close, which means the wellness industry is gearing up with lots of new and exciting launches ready for the autumn. From micro gyms to the ultimate kitchen essential that will transform the way you cook, a brand new family hub with wellbeing at the centre and much more, here’s what’s new in the world of wellness this September.
It’s not often we get excited over cookware but Our Place has certainly given us reason to! Upgrading the way we cook in more ways than one, Our Place has designed game-changing cookware that’s taken the industry by storm. Their signature product, the ‘Always Pan’ is the ultimate hybrid kitchen accessory, with the ability to braise, sear, steam, strain, saute, fry, boil, serve, store…you get the picture! The best part about the Always Pan is the way it combines every single pot, saving you space and money, plus it’s surprisingly light making it easy to handle whilst being super durable to last a lifetime. The nonstick ceramic coating on this eye-catching bit of kitchen kit is second to none, we’re literally blown away by the high level of performance which really does transform the way you cook. It’s definitely the most slippery surface we’ve ever cooked on but, most importantly, it’s made without potentially toxic materials such as PFOAs, PTFEs and PFAs commonly used on other pans, making it safer and healthier for you and your family. With genius built-in hacks such as the spoon rest, steamer basket and ‘stay cool’ handle, it’s fair to say the Always Pan is worth every penny, plus it looks so beautiful front and centre in the kitchen. Much to everybody’s delight, Our Place has just launched their brand new ‘Perfect Pot’ which also adopts the same ‘does-it-all wonder as the Always Pan. Boasting a similarly sleek design and non-toxic, nonstick ceramic coating, this duo makes cooking and cleaning a seamless task, not to mention the number of compliments you’ll receive from guests as they enter your kitchen!

Bringing a unique, new concept to the fitness industry, ELYSIUM is filling a very much-needed gap in the market. If you’re a personal trainer or you know someone who is, ELYSIUM might just be the concept that takes your business to the next level. The luxury micro gym is available to rent for you to train your clients when it suits you. There seems to have been very limited options for where PT’s can in the past, parks with limited equipment and weather permitting or gym floor space with subsequent extortionate rates. ELYSIUM is changing the scoop with their kitted out studio, ideal for 1-to-1 PT sessions and at a fraction of the price of long-term rental options. Boasting accessibility, flexibility and affordability ELYSIUM operates on an easy to use app where you can book the gym out as well as let yourself in once your session begins. The micro gym is equipped with a Concept2 Rower, SkiErg and BikeErg plus a full cable machine and of course, no gym would be complete without a squat rack, plates, dumbbells and kettlebells. There’s even a bathroom fitted with a shower and luxury toiletries if clients wish to shower post-workout. Offering clients the best of both worlds in terms of private space and state of the art equipment, ELYSIUM gives PT’s the chance to provide a luxury experience without being tied down which in these times seems more important than ever. Even if you’re not a professional in the fitness industry and you like the sounds of ELYSIUM you can book the micro gym out to come along and train with a friend which makes a very welcoming change from packed out gyms…plus you can plug in your own music to the surround sound speakers!
