January is, traditionally, a time for resolutions and new beginnings. It can also be a time of regret, having packed away one too many mince pies over Christmas. Put any chocolate-based remorse behind you and let us help get your New Year plan of attack sorted – we’ve got some fab gear and helpful hints too, so you don’t even have to splash out on an expensive gym membership.
What you wear to work out matters and Nike understand the importance of quality and versatility. These Printed Pro Warm Tights expertly combine fashion with durability and comfort and, because they’re made with spandex, you get a nice snug fit. The Dri-FIT fabric technology means you stay dry even when working up a sweat – especially if you team them with Nike’s Dri-FIT Knit Running T-shirt in cool khaki. The top is so flattering you’ll want to wear it even when you’re not perfecting your press-ups!
You won’t get far without the right footwear and again, Nike really know what they’re doing in this department. Slip on a pair of their Flex TR 6 trainers for ultimate support and comfort no matter what activity you get up to – and rest assured that your feet will be expertly looked after, thanks to Nike’s years of experience in footwear technology.
We all know how important it is to stay properly hydrated – not only does water detoxify the system, it also boosts the metabolism. However, we also know that water isn’t always the most exciting drink! Well, now you can create delicious natural fruity water with the Bio Synergy Fruit Infusing Water Bottle – just pop some fruit and/or veg (cucumber and watermelon are a great combo) into the specially designed infusion chamber – and water will never be boring again. You’re going to need something to carry all your kit in and you can’t do much better than the Auralux Tote Bag from Nike. Hard-wearing yet lightweight, its several compartments and pockets will help you stay super-organised while you keep fit.
Next, let’s take a look at a couple of great pieces of equipment to get you started. The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn so this York Vinyl Kettlebell Set is going to be your new best friend. With 3 different weights, you can work every muscle group in the body whilst toning up. And for cardio plus extra toning from the waist down, the Body Sculpture Stepper With Resistance Cords will give you a fabulous full body workout.
Good luck and remember, use what’s around you to help with your fitness goals – leave the car at home, run around with the kids, take the stairs. Every little step will help – and Littlewoods is with you all the way!
