Anyone who wears workout gear will seriously need this activewear outfit in their life. The striking constellation print and contrast white tiger band of We Are Handsome’s Orion Crop will make you the envy of all fellow gym-goers, and you’ll be super comfy too thanks to the sweat-wicking, quick drying, advanced Subli-Cool 2.0 technology fabric. Pair with Under The Same Sun’s Vitality Leggings – they honestly offer everything you could ever want in a pair of leggings: eco-friendly fabric made from recycled plastic bottles, quick-drying and sweat-absorbing technologies, a gorgeously vibrant print and a super flattering fit.
I love the idea of using essential oils to help us in our everyday lives – in fact I’m pretty sure I only passed my A-Levels because I did all my revision with a Neom ‘Scent To Focus the Mind’ candle burning constantly in the background! This clever little kit contains all the fragrances you need to boost your energy pre-exercise, keep those endorphins flowing post-workout, de-stress at the end of the day before finally getting a restful nights sleep – leaving you ready to power through another supercharged day.
These will be a complete lifesaver for any fitness class attendee during the winter months, as lets face it, barre class can be challenging at the best of times, let alone when your toes feel like ice cubes! The grip on the bottom of these socks will make your downward dog perfectly achievable, whilst the five-toe design ensures your feet are supported to perform their natural movement – this is so important as our feet amazingly contain over 26 bones and 100 muscles.
As a firm coffee addict and Pilates devotee, this bag basically describes my idea of a perfect morning. Great for toting all your gym necessities to and from classes (and maybe the coffee shop…), you’ll be forever prepared for some fitness action – no more excuses!
No one enjoys the soreness that can gather in your muscles after a good workout, leaving you feeling unable to walk up the stairs let alone hit the gym. Gently rolling out your muscles with a massage ball is incredible at helping alleviate any tension, leaving you ready to spring back into action. Especially perfect now that we’re heading into the Christmas season, using a massage ball regularly can also help boost your circulation and release toxins.
