TRACK YOUR PROGRESS
You’ll wonder how you ever lived without Jawbone UP Move - the new activity-tracking device that is designed to help you get fit, lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle. The built-in accelerometer counts your daily steps and you can also wear it to bed to monitor your sleep quality and patterns.
The device connects wirelessly with the Jawbone’s UP App via Bluetooth so you can track your progress throughout the day and better understand how your diet, sleep and activity choices affect your overall health and well-being.
If you are thinking about taking up running or training for the London Marathon in April, try on a pair of New Balance Fresh Foam Zante, which hit shelves this month.
The trainers feature a supportive sock-like design to keep feet snug and a plush, super comfy foam midsole to help deliver a smooth run. This new shoe has a quick and smooth heel to toe transition, helping you feel fast, whatever your level.
Keen to upgrade your gym attire? Look no further than Bodyism workout wear. We love the innovative new Octavia leggings, which are made with super smart Emana fabric. Bio-active crystals within the fabric absorb body heat and return it in the form of infrared rays that promote collagen synthesis for smooth skin and a reduction in the appearance of cellulite. By activating the body’s microcirculation, the leggings also reduce muscle tiredness while you’re working out.
Workout wear is more stylish than ever before, but sleeker designs means there’s nowhere to stash your phone, cash and keys while you’re exercising. Get yourself a Flipbelt, the cool new storage aid that is designed to carry on-the-go essentials without tying up your hands. Made of a stretchy spandex material, the belt sits snugly on your hip and comes with pockets to keep your items secure. Simply insert your goods and flip it over.
