Every year, millions of us set ourselves New Year resolutions that are often forgotten halfway through the year.
One of the most common is to start eating healthily and finally use that gym membership that you find yourself forking out for every month, yet you never use.
Getting the motivation to head to the gym to get rid of all those post-Christmas pounds and get yourself in the shape of your life isn’t always easy. But if you can find a way to make your workouts more enjoyable then you’re onto a winner.
Treating yourself to a brand new fitness wardrobe is a great way to motivate yourself to head to the gym, get your money’s worth from your membership, and work your way to that beach body ready for your holiday – new year, new you, right?
With the sports luxe trend becoming increasingly popular, and celebrity’s such as Gigi Hadid and Ellie Goulding flying the flag for women’s fitness, it’s not so much the case of worrying about your appearance when you go to workout, it’s more finding a wardrobe that’s comfortable yet stylish – old lycra and spandex leggings just aren’t cool anymore ladies.
There are so many stylish – and flattering – active ranges out in stores for you to get you hands on. And now we’re even all a step closer to channelling our inner Beyonce following the release of her Ivy Park range with Topshop last year, perfect for running errands after a hardcore workout. Stores such as H&M, New Look, Pull & Bear and Mango also all offer some great activewear pieces.
