Sun’s out, guns out – that’s what they say, right? With longer days and (hopefully) gorgeous weather, summer’s the perfect time to get working on your fitness.

That’s why we’re big fans of the Powerbeats Pro Wireless Bluetooth Sports Earphones from Beats. They’re designed for anyone who wants to get active – whether you’re just starting out or can run a marathon in your sleep. But don’t just take our word for it. We’ve got three different workouts that’ll show off exactly what the Powerbeats Pro can do!

Why not try… HIIT

HIIT is short for High Intensity Interval Training. You go all-out with intense short bursts of activity followed by short periods of rest. And it’s popular for a reason. It’s one of the fastest ways to get fit and combines both strength training and cardio, yet the workouts can be as short as 15 or 20 minutes. Brilliant for squeezing into a lunch break.

Because you’ll probably be jumping up, down and all around, the Powerbeats Pro Wireless Bluetooth Sports Earphones are perfect for this. Just head down to the park or get in the garden, stick the earphones in and they’ll take you through your whole workout without falling out.

Stays put, even when you don’t!

One of the most important things when you’re picking earphones for exercise has to be the fit. Snug enough to stay in your ears while moving, but not so big they feel uncomfortable. There’s nothing worse than having to squish your earphones back in mid rep.

That’s why Powerbeats Pro earphones are specially designed with adjustable, secure-fit earhooks to withstand all that jostling. There are also several different ear-tip options to help you find your perfect fit. And they’re wireless, so getting tangled up in your earphones’ cable is one less thing to worry about.

Even working up a sweat or getting caught in the rain isn’t an issue, since these earphones are both sweat and water resistant.

Why not try… long-distance running

Marathon running has a whole ton of benefits – it lowers your heart rate, tones your muscles and burns fat. It’s great to build mental toughness too, since half the battle is in your mind. But it’s really important to make sure you warm-up and cool down properly, otherwise you won’t be running long before you get an injury.

The Powerbeats Pro Wireless Bluetooth Sports Earphones will take you through your warm-up, your run and your cool down, no problem. No runner’s wall for them!

Go on and on

When your earphones’ battery runs out, it can derail your whole workout. Well, Beats have found a way to fix the problem! These earphones have got 9 hours of listening time – and the charging case brings that up to a combined 24 hours of playback. So unless you’re doing an Iron Man every day, they’re sure to take you through even the longest workout.

Forgot to charge them? No biggie. The Powerbeats Pro have a Fast Fuel function – with just 5 minutes of charging you can get your earphones back up to 1.5 hours of juice. Ideal for a spur-of-the-moment run.

Why not try… a dance workout

If you’re new to fitness or just need a change to your regular routine, dance can be a fun way to shake things up. Once you get into your groove, it doesn’t even feel like you’re working out… except for the excessive amounts of sweating. And panting. Either way, it’s easy to get really into it.

Once you’ve got some basic moves down, you can create your own routine to your favourite music – rather than watching the same videos on repeat. Just build a playlist, get your earphones on and you’re off. Not feeling a track? Just skip it with one press of your Powerbeats Pro earphones.

Easy listening

It’s a faff to stop what you’re doing any time you want to pause or skip a track. So it’s pretty handy that the Powerbeats Pro earphones have full volume and track controls on each earbud. Rather than fishing your phone out or walking over to your laptop, you can just turn it up with one tap on your ear.

They’re pretty smart too, detecting when you’ve taken your earphones out your ears. So if you stop to talk to someone quickly, your earphones will pause your music. Pop them back in and they’ll pick up exactly where you left off. If you’ve got a compatible device, you could even use your voice assistant with your Powerbeats Pro earphones. Make calls, send texts and even get your notifications read to you, all without breaking your stride.

Happy workout!
