Don’t Sweat It – Take your Fitness Wardrobe into A/W ’15
We may only just be enjoying being able to take our fitness routines into the great outdoors and into the sunshine, however it’s time to start thinking about how you will transition your workout wardrobe into A/W 2015. Staying motivated to keep fit when the weather is grim can be difficult, which is why we have put together our top tips for winter workouts, and our favourite workout gear to wear throughout the season.
Your Winter Workout Wardrobe
Experts recommend investing to high quality fitness gear if you intend on continuing your fitness regime over the winter months. Thermal gear such as leggings, vests and gloves are ideal for those icy cold runs, however once you have the essentials it is time to start layering up with the latest picks from our favourite sports collections.
We’ve picked out an Adidas Y-3 track jacket and Adidas Y-3 track pants from the range, both designed to keep you warm and stylish whilst you’re outdoors. We’ve paired them with the Asics Gel Lyte Evo shoes in dark blue, these trainers have cushioned insoles and all round mesh detail.
In this look we’ve pulled out a classic looking Hugo Boss Black medium grey track top and Hugo Boss Black track pants. This time we’ve chosen some must have Nikes to finish off the look. The Air Nike Air Odyssey is an update of the ’87 classic and offers an air-sole unit designed for comfort and ultimate cushioning.
Winter Workout Tips
- Training is a constant challenge and when you’re faced with rain, wind and even snowy conditions, you need to adapt your focus to deal with the new terrain. Getting outside and embracing the cold is invigorating, whether you decide to go for a run or mix things up a bit with winter spots such as cross country skiing.
- Don’t try and overdo it, if you are really dreading heading outside into the cold, change your workout schedule so that you are doing short burst of exercise throughout the day instead of one long session. This variation will also help your heart rate as you switch between exercise and rest mode.
- Set yourself a goal for the winter months, this could be anything from a weight loss challenge or a goal to increase your stamina or ability to run long distance. You don’t need to wait until January 1st to get started, get ahead of the game and start as soon as the colder months set in.
- Create a new workout playlist that will motivate you to move. If you have been listening to the same workout tunes over the summer months, try something completely different as you plan your winter regime. Experts recommends switching to something you’re not familiar with to jump start your session. If you have been sticking to club classics, why not try some heavy rock?
