You know what January means. It’s detox time. It’s the time of year we want banish that excess weight we gained over Christmas (darn those tasty mince pies!) and get into shape. And there’s something about the new year that kick-starts our motivation. So arm yourself with a positive attitude and Littlewoods can arm you with anything else you might need.
Firstly, you’ll need to be kitted out. On the women’s front we have a variety of garments and accessories to make sure you’re exercise-ready. Of the uppermost importance is a decent sports bra – the Shock Absorber Max Sports Bra Top – Black/White is the perfect choice. It features lined cups, an internal sling for maximum support and minimum movement, adjustable padded straps and is breathable too. A pair of proper trainers are essential too. The Reebok Carthage Women’s Running Trainers are the perfect starter pair. We’ve got plenty more in the sports wardrobe department too from tops to bottoms to jackets. The adidas Clima Tech Three-Quarter Pants are particularly good for their compression feature.
For you guys, we’re loving the Nike Mens Vintage Cuffed Jogging Bottoms. With their cuffed detailing, they won’t annoy you during a high-intensity workout. They’re also made of cotton ensuring they’re built to last. On the trainer front, we have a vast selection. The adidas Vanquish 6 m Mens Trainers are a great all-round design.
Once you look and feel the part, it’s time to start thinking about just how you’re going to lose those inches or tone up. Littlewoods practically houses its own gym with all the equipment we have on offer. We have running machines, cross trainers and bikes; the Body Sculpture Programmable Exercise Bike is a great buy and allows you to increase overall fitness from the comfort of your home (with Friends on for company too, of course). And that’s not all you can get from Body Sculpture. There’s the Body Sculpture Star Shaper by Body Sculpture 7.5Kg Kettlebell, the Body Sculpture Yoga Mat and the Body Sculpture Deluxe Pilates Set which consists of a gym ball, pump, resistance band and weighted sculpting balls.
Other popular buys include the High Street TV Shake Weight (amazing if you want to tone your arms) and the Reebok Easytone Step, which makes you use muscles you didn’t even know you had with its two-sided design.
