Getting more exercise is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions, so why not make a start on it now? Sign up for a sponsored run and train like a boss, join your local gym or practice yoga – whatever floats your boat. What better way to start your journey to a happier and healthier you than by kitting yourself out with new (and not to mention stylish) activewear? Take a look at our pick of the best activewear that won’t damage your purse.
Black High Impact Full Cup Underwired Sports Bra, RRP £26
If you’ve ever accidentally worn your everyday underwear to Zumba or HIIT classes, then you’ll know just how important it is to invest in a good sports bra. As our boobs are made from soft tissue, they need extra support during exercise to reduce the amount of bounce and to prevent discomfort and sagging. Keeping everything in place without completely flattening or squashing the goods down is the Black High Impact Full Cup Underwired Sports Bra from Next. With a strong underband and cushioned straps, your breasts are supported in lightly padded cups, allowing you to focus on your workout and not worry about breaking a sweat.
Embrace the Chill Marl Hoodie, RRP £55
Brace yourself for any workout with go-to layers. Made with cooler cardio sessions in mind, the Jilla Embrace the Chill Marl Hoodie will keep your covered whatever the weather. Whether you’re training for the epic Wolf Run or The London Marathon on dark and drizzly days, this hoodie has been designed with reflective trims, a hood and thumb holes to keep you dry and visible. With zipped side pockets (always a bonus), any valuables that you take out with you on your morning run will be kept safe and secure. We bet you’ll want to wear this as casual loungewear on lazy Sundays too!
Pink Star Sports Bra, RRP £20
Whether you’re headed to the gym or are ready to zen out at your weekly yoga class, the Star padded bra is made with an extremely soft fabric and features a single strap that runs up the spine allowing for a free range of movement of the upper body without feeling restricted.
Geo Print Leggings, RRP £22
Next has really upped its game with its NX sport collection, offering super stylish and affordable activewear. With a bold geometric print running down the side of each leg, these leggings are made with moisture-wicking fabric, drawing moisture away from the body.
Formation Blue Under Armour Womens Squad 2.0 Trainers, RRP £49.99
As seen on Get the Label, an online retailer that sells big brands at discounted prices, these Formation Blue lace-up trainers are just what you need to hit the treadmill with this January. With a breathable mesh upper and a padded tongue and collar for added comfort, be sure to snap up these urban trainers before they go!
