Get fit in style

by The Mall Stylist, 10th January 2017 | Style

The start of the New Year always brings with it lots of resolutions. Maybe this year you’ve decided to get fitter, tone up, hit the pool or just get up off the sofa and go for a run in the fresh air. Whatever your fitness resolution, the right kit is a must have – we’ve put together a selection of our favourite pieces to hit the gym in.


Clockwise L-R Nike headband £5 JD Sports, sports jacket £45 River Island, High impact sports bra £30 Next, Nike trainers £85 JD Sports, Nike gym bag £22 JD Sports, Leggings £28 River Island, Technical leggings £22 Next, Speedo swimsuit £36 John Lewis, water bottle £6.99 New Look.

Leggings are a great way of bringing a splash of colour or print to a workout look, especially if you tend to shy away from colour away from the gym. Bright colours are also important if you are a runner, to allow traffic and other pedestrians to see you. Next, New Look, River Island and M&S have a huge selection of printed styles that will work well with plainer, block colour tops and jackets.

A good bra is an essential purchase to keep you comfortable through your workout. Racer back styles and seamless fabrics mean you can workout in style and stay supported whether you are running, spinning or on the yoga mat. Of course, you’ll need a pair of trainers to complete the look and protect feet, legs and joints as you work out – JD sports have a huge range in store with many different styles suitable for different types of exercise. Don’t forget a gym bag to stash all your kit in, as well as a water bottle to keep hydrated and a headband to keep hair out of your face.

Hitting the pool instead? Choose a sleek one piece swimsuit to streamline your shape as you build up the lengths. You’ll be fast-lane ready in this Speedo suit from John Lewis, which boasts a high cut leg and racer back to allow freedom of movement in the water.
