If you set up a New Year’s fitness routine, then you’re probably now looking back and seeing January in one of two ways: a (mostly) success or an absolute disaster. If you’re veering towards the latter, stop right there. Focusing on failure isn’t going to make you feel any better or more motivated. So instead, think of January as a “trial run” and focus on moving forward in February.
So now that the the evenings are starting to feel a teeny bit longer, why not throw on those running shoes and get yourself out the door? Whether it’s a quick jog around the park, an hour at the gym or a fun dance class, you’re bound to feel the benefits of a good workout session.
Stylish and comfortable runners
Everyone needs at least one decent pair of runners in their wardrobe. And they don’t have to be boring ones you wear only for exercise. These Nike Juvenate Trainers are dead ringers for Yeezys, Kanye West’s astronomically expensive sneaker range, which have been seen on all sorts of celebrities from Justin Bieber to Barrack Obama (who knew they had something in common?).
Another cool pair of Nikes are these Nike Court Royale, which have a trendy pop of coral in their design. And for girls just looking for something comfortable to wear to and from yoga class, how about these classic Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Canvas Plimsolls?
Exercising outside the home often isn’t feasible for many of us. So for times when you just can’t leave the house, break out this handy Tunturi Pilates-Yoga Fitness Set and stick on a workout DVD like the brand new Davina Fitness Combo (pre-order yours today, so you’ll have something to look forward to and boost your inspiration come March).
Davina’s routines are broken up into achievable 15 minute sessions, so are perfect for those of us who are short on time. But if time, energy and enthusiasm are in abundance, check out this Zumba Gold Live It Up set. You’ll feel the burn with that set alright!
Go-to sportswear essentials
If you’re looking for a simple yet stylish go-to workout look, we reckon you can’t go wrong with a comfortable pair of Nike Pro Three-Quarter Capris. Or for something a little bit warmer, these basic Converse Core Signature Fleece Pants are a good staple. Don’t forget to invest in a good quality sports bra to keep you comfortable and supported during your workout. And to keep you warm and cosy, get your hands on this cool Nike Gym Vintage Hooded Top.
