The pandemic has spurred a boom in home exercise, whether it’s a sit up mat and a couple of 25-pound dumbbells, or a lavish home gym. This 31-year institution in Largo features 23,000 square feet packed with everything from the space-age machines, to free-weight systems perfect for gym rats, to simple exercise balls. The company specializes in installing home gyms, so if you wanna go big, this is the place. What sets Bandit apart from big-box chain stores is its vast selection, wide-ranging service and an expert sales staff that simply wants to set you up with the equipment that fits your lifestyle. banditfitness.com

Tiffozi Apparel

When was the last time something came along that you didn’t know existed, but also couldn’t live without when you found it? Enter Tiffozi, the ridiculously meticulous vintage soccer (football if you’re cool) apparel shop located on the old Main Street near North Howard Avenue Boasting a seriously impressive collection of vintage soccer gear, from track jackets to jerseys and the like, Tiffozi has a collection worth gawking at, even if you aren’t a fan of the sport. What makes it even cooler? It’s appointment only, unless you can make it down on a Saturday to see the goods in person. I know where I’m headed for my next Steven Gerrard jersey. tiffoziapparel.com
