It’s a new year. You’re armed with boatloads of renewed motivation and a workout plan that should see you shredding in no time. There’s just one problem.

You haven’t refreshed your workout wardrobe in ages.

If you’re re-entering the fitness arena after any length of absence, the last thing you want is to feel even more like a fish out of water by wearing worn-down or outdated workout clothes.

Besides, plenty of psychological experts have agreed that our choice of activewear can actually impact the efficiency of our workouts. We guess it stands to reasons that if we feel comfortable and supported in clothes we associate with successful exercise, we’re more likely to push through any roadblocks to reach our fitness goals.

Which is where we come in. Fitness experts, we are not. But we’re nothing if not determined to help you guys succeed.

So, we’ve scoured the web (which still includes a fair few winter sales, FYI), to bring you the freshest finds from the world of women’s activewear – from running jackets to trainers, socks to weightlifting gloves, sports bras, joggers and everything in between.

Because we all deserve to slay as we shred.
