Ronhill Core Men's Water Resistant Running Jacket
Whether you’ve managed to stick to your new gym routine or just want to get back on the bandwagon, a bit of fresh gear is always a good idea
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a recent recruit to the January joggers or you’ve long been into HIIT, there's no doubt that a new year makes us all to take stock of our fitness.
So while you’re planning to run your first 10k, prepping for an ultra-marathon or hoping to make it to the gym once or twice before summer rolls round, we’ve got the kit you need to look good doing it.
We know, we know. It’s so tempting to stay on the sofa during the colder months, but getting outside and setting yourself realistic running goals will do you the world of good. Pick clothing with high-spec technical properties – Adidas, Ronhill and Under Armour are all great for this – to regulate body temperature while still protecting you from the inevitable rain, wind and cold.
Get your kit right, and you might get more out of your at-home workout. Keep it simple by choosing neutral tones that you can wear in the park come springtime and remember that practicality is key: choose lightweight fabrics that’ll combat sweat without causing overheating, such as cotton, bamboo and polyester blends. Chuck on a new-season hoodie to beat the chill while you do your cooldown stretches.
If you’re keen to stick to your fitness goals but struggle to find the motivation to head out during winter's coldest days, pick up pieces that’ll help you work out at home – we’re talking yoga mats, grip trainers and the right headphones.
The smallest bits of kit are often the ones that can really elevate your exercise routine. Anything to make us more likely to just keep. On. Moving. Right?
If you’re planning to indulge in the ultimate winter workout with a spot of skiing or snowboarding then proper kit is a must. Obviously make sure it’s warm and breathable, but remember: layers are everything. Get prepped and ready with some must-have pieces.
