To give your fitness regime a lift we’ve gathered up our top products available from retailers in The Centre which will help keep you motivated, look stylish and make workouts a breeze!
Whether you’re getting back to pre-Christmas routines or signing up for your very first gym session you need to invest in a pair of trainers which will be kind to your feet. We love the Nike MD Runner 2 Ladies red trainers from Deichmann for £54.99 - these lightweight, colourful trainers will add a touch of retro cool to your next run, while keeping your feet comfortable and well supported, with a cushioned insole and shaped ankle collar.
Brighten up your gym kit and beat away those winter blues with the athleisure range at Oasis, Debenhams. The on-trend tropical orchid print bra top, £24, is both stylish and supportive, while the matching cropped leggings, £32, are functional, feminine and flattering - guaranteed to get you to your next gym session in style. With cross back tees, vests and matching backpacks in the same print, you’re sure to find your ideal workout wardrobe.
If you’re a fan of chic laid-back athleisure check out the Pineapple range at Miss Selfridge, Debenhams. We love the raw hem cropped tee for £14 - this super soft jersey blend tee features a bold red logo across the chest, for simple, effortless, style. Or, if you’re trying to track down the perfect pair of tracksuit bottoms, look no further than the Pineapple joggers in grey, £24, Miss Selfridge, Debenhams. Not only are they extremely comfortable but the design includes a repetitive elastic logo down the leg adding a chilled, retro sporty vibe.
Bring a tropical twist to your activewear with vibrant palm prints at New Look. The mesh panelled crop top, £14.99 can be paired with the matching leggings, £19.99, and canvas trainers for a fun, youthful vibe guaranteed to turn your gym buddies green with envy!
Whatever sport or exercise you are taking part in, a supportive sports bra is essential. M&S has a fantastic range of sports bras including a high impact padded sports bra for £25 in sizes A-DD. Designed with full coverage, great support and breathable cups it’s no wonder they’re a best-seller.
Swimming offers a fantastic full body workout – improving strength, burning fat and increasing muscle tone. Give your body confidence a boost with a Secret Slimming™ high neck swimsuit, £29.50 from M&S. The swimsuit uses innovative secret slimming technology, where an inner layer of control fabric holds and flatters the figure, giving you a push to plunge into the pool and hit your fitness targets.
For a high-tech approach to fitness why not invest in the Fitbit Alta HR fitness wristband for £129.99 from Argos. The wristband helps you jumpstart your fitness journey with heart rate tracking and automatic exercise recognition, and captures all of your stats, helping you to achieve your fitness goals. It also links up with your smartphone, sending you friendly reminders to keep you on track.
Fans of boxercise could opt for an Everlast Target Freestanding Punchbag for £139.99 from Argos. The high density plastic punchbag can be filled with water or sand for stability and the durable spring neck creates quick bag rebound, helping to build endurance and agility for boxing and overall fitness training. Numbered targets give you something to aim at and you can build a challenging, fun workout routine around them.
If you find it difficult waking up on dark winter mornings, let alone getting out and about for an early morning run, the Lumie Bodyclock, £59.99 from Argos, might be just what you need. The brightening light brings you gently out of sleep, telling your body to reduce the production of sleep hormone melatonin and increase hormones like cortisol to help you get up and go!
If you are planning an early morning run you might want to add an M&S running top, £29.50 to your workout wishlist. The long sleeved sports top is ideal to workout in when the weather is a little cooler and is made with reflective technologies that mean you can be seen in the dark.
For a mindful start to the day, why not try a yoga session in the comfort of your own home? A yoga exercise mat is available from Argos for just £15.99 - the mat is designed specifically to provide extra comfort and the non-slip sticky texture help you maintain even the most advanced pose!
If you’re keen to try a total body shaping and tonight workout at home, the WonderCore Smart, £79.99, Argos might just be for you. It combines six exercises, plus cardio, that target your upper, middle and lower abs as well as your obliques. It comes with a DVD, an exercise and nutrition guide and easily folds up for storage.
Finally if the thought of pounding the pavements over winter just isn’t enticing you out of your bed – you could ensure year-round running (whatever the weather!) by investing in a Reebok i-Run Treadmill, £449.99 Argos. The eight piece cushioning system absorbs every stride allowing you to exercise in comfort. It comes with twelve pre-set programmes and two levels of manual incline, giving you a varied and challenging routine, and features an innovative folding mechanism, to fold completely flat.
