5 Gym bag essentials

Your best workout yet is only a click away

There is never a better time to refresh your workout gear than when the weather turns. No one wants to leave the house at the crack of dawn to put their tired body through its paces, but sometimes a cool new kit is the only push you need to get you out the door and onto the stationary bike. More than that, good gear supports a good workout. Tick these must haves - including new South Beach coords and fitbit tech - off your list asap for your best session yet.

Sports bra

This South Beach performance number will support your workout with a racerback design and a steady band, and support your style with its cool tie dye print. Add this to your arsenal for a comfortable workout piece that works with every pair of leggings you own.



You know all about the small but effective psychological boost of wearing matching sets of lingerie, but did you know you can give your mind some of the same benefits in the gym by following suit? There's something about looking the part that makes us feel more comfortable and confident, so when you buy the top, you should get the leggings too.

Tech knit

Working out in winter sometimes means exposure to the elements, as any jogger will tell you. Set yourself up for success with knitwear engineered to keep you warm without weighing you down - you'll need all the help you can get not to turn back after the first 5 minutes.

Fitness tracker

If you’re serious about staying on track, a fitness tracker will be your best investment. This heart rate tracker syncs to your smartphone and tracks your sleep, activity and exercise all from a touchscreen band with a 7-day battery life.


duffel bag

Any old carry all won’t do. You want a bag with compartments to separate the clothes and shoes you’ve been in all day from the ones you’ll work out in, and from the ones you’ll change into after you hit the showers. Something breathable and easily maintained (as in, machine washable) is the best idea. This Puma echo version doesn’t take up much room and can also be used for a weekend away.
