Gear Up for Your New Year Fitness Journey | Activewear Edit

January 5, 2018

You have made the amazing decision to start moving more this year, whether that be running, dance classes or swimming. So what better way to celebrate then to buy some new active wear in the January sales! Below are my favourite picks to suit all budgets of what is available right now to get you geared up on your fitness journey:



Fendi have a range of brightly coloured sports bras for those looking to splash out. P.E Nation have a number of colourful sports bras like this Breaker Stretch print bra or the Asset Crop. If you’re looking for something more affordable take a look at these Dorina sports bras in mint, coral and patterned starting form just £8. For bigger boobs that require more support, Freya is a great brand to look into for bras as they offer actual bra sizing. This red one is a great colour to wear with black activewear for a pop of colour, or if you want more subtle they also have black bras available. Triumph and Shock Absorber also have great reviews for supportive bras.



Planning on working out outdoors or do you walk to the gym? A hooded top like this Adidas Performance top will keep you warm. Or this Ted Baker track top would keep you warm and you’d still look stylish. Crop tops are perfect for a sweaty workout – this grey vest top from Nike would be perfect and is only £14. Or how about this white Guess crop top? I personally prefer working out in tighter vest tops as they have a flattering fit. This dry knit stretch tank from Nike is a gorgeous pink colour. If you prefer something baggier however Adidas has a wide range of their Original tees which can be work oversized.



Leggings are something I will always invest in as good quality ones are always worth it. Buy cheaper ones and you are most probably going to end up with see-through leggings when doing any sort of lower body workout. Nike are a brand I have always bough leggings from and always go back to as they are good quality. These blue mesh panelled leggings look amazing, as do these Hypercool printed leggings. If you like loud prints and bright colours, Dharma Bums is the brand for you. Take a look at these butterfly print leggings now only £29. 3/4 length leggings are perfect for taking hot yoga classes, and these Adidas by Stella McCartney black leggings look perfect for that. Are you more of a shorts wearer? Nike have some great printed shorts for just £21 or Acai have some pastel coloured workout shorts on sale. If you really want to splash out, Fendi have some bright pink shorts which also have a matching bra!



Trainers are great for inside or outside of the gym and there are many types of trainers for different types of training. For running check out these Adidas Performance Energy Cloud running shoes or their Performance Ultra Boosts? ASICS Gel Nimbus 19 running shoes have great moisture control and a comfort underfoot, perfect for those long distances. Nike are the brand I have always bought running trainers from and they have plenty to choose from – the Nike Zoom Winflo, Nike Dulatone Racer or the Nike Free Rn Flyknit trainers which are currently on sale.



Whether you workout outside or not, a sports jacket is handy to have. Waterproof jackets are great for those who run or workout outdoors in the British weather. This Tog 24 ski jacket is guaranteed to keep you toasty, or this Nike Therma Shield jacket will keep you dry. If you are hitting the slopes this year heck out this stylish grey ski jacket which is currently on sale. Looking for something lighter to throw on after a workout? These Adidas Original jackets are popular at the moment. If colour is your thing take a look at this floral Guess jacket or this Ted Baker prism jacket.



Fitness watchers or trackers are great accessories to use if you are a fan of tracking your workouts and progress. The Fitbit Blaze is popular at the moment with great reviews online. If you’re looking to save the pennies why not take a look at this Misfit Activity Tracker which is discounted to £49.99.

Wireless headphones are great for any workout and these Bose Soundsport In-Ear Headphones are sweat and weather resistant.

Looking to treat yourself to a designer gym bag? Try this Calvin Klein Susie gym bag which is currently on offer. If you you like millennial pink Fiorelli have a gorgeous shoulder bag or this backpack.
