The Christmas festivities of over-eating and the New Year popping of champagne have come to an end. All the glitz and glam is gone and we slowly remember how much we dislike the sound of a Monday morning alarm and the snooze button becomes our best friend. Your Facebook and Instagram feeds are now like a field of salad leaves and beach body inspiration takes over your entire internet history, Yip. We’re all thinking it; ‘new year, new you’. If you haven’t quite clicked that ‘join now’ button of your local gym website then let us inspire you to do so.

If you’re anything like me and feel like you’ve eaten the entire supermarket during the festive season then making that decision to get fit has never been easier. I felt so guilty after my last take away curry of 2015 that I signed up for a half marathon, yes I know, what was I thinking. There’s nothing like channelling your inner Paula Radcliffe to kick off the ‘new year, new you’ mantra.

If running or even jogging is your New Year resolution then you’ll want to get your hands on the fan favourite; New Balance. Known for their fit, performance and construction, they’re definitely the brand for you.

Be part of the Memory foam gang with the Skechers Flex Appeal Hollywood. It’s the ideal partner to perfect your posture. Or why not go for the Skechers Go Walk 3. Not only will your feet feel in the zone while you bend and stretch, the walk to your yoga class can be enjoyed with a bit if extra bounce due to the Goga Mat Technology. Ladies, these trainers are a fitness must-have.

Ok, marathons and mantras are maybe not your thing then who says shopping can’t be a sport? It involves endless trips up and down the high street, ducking and diving through the sale racks and racing to the empty cashier. I feel like this calls for some new comfy kicks too.


Ladies, treat your feet to the Nike Juvenate. You’ll feel light as a feather and free as a bird while you shop ‘til you drop.

Guys, grab a pair of the Nike Air Max Tavas. This super popular trainer is perfect for looking like you’ve fully committed to fitness this year when secretly you’re just heading to pick up a few last minute bargains.
