If there's one thing that get's me off my bum and onto the treadmill it's new gym gear. If you commute to and from work you'll understand how hard it is to come home (especially on a cold night), throw on some lycra and head to the gym, when I'd much rather be eating pizza and reading Vogue magazine from the comfort of my own bed. But quite often I think I feel tired mentally but not physically so the main battle is persuading myself to get out and do it!
Whether it's new trainers, a new running watch or new fitness clothing, I think that making yourself feel good is the key to enjoying exercise. Primark's new SS15 activewear collection has certainly encouraged me to feel just that and I have already invested in three key pieces. A pair of 3/4 length black running leggings (around £8), a neon trim sports bra (£4) and a cool racer back top (£6). Each item is soft and comfortable and I even made sure I tested it all out with one very painful hour of Insanity at the gym so I can tell you that these pieces are easy to work out in. The sports bra is even slightly padded so it still gives support whilst the neon trim looks super stylish!
Sports clothing can be expensive if you exercise regularly but I prefer to buy cheaper items on the high-street along with other brands such as Adidas and Nike so I can really mix it up! Believe it or not, Aldi does some great running pieces at a very reasonable price but if you're looking for something more trend-focused then definitely check out the new Activewear ranges from Missguided and Boohoo.
I hope you've enjoyed my fitness related post and feel inspired to get outside and exercise this week. I'm going spinning tomorrow so I think that will do for the weekend!
