Product edit: Your gym kit update (part 1)

RW Rachel V Wall

It’s scientifically proven that new workout clothes inspire us to get out of bed and in the gym – and who are we to argue with science? So, we’ve rounded up some of the best new athleisure wear and gym accessories to help you reconnect to your training-mojo, whatever the weather.

1Runderwear Support Bra, £50

Runderwear began with a single, elegant goal – to create “the ultimate experience of comfort for your run”. What started for the founders as a quest for good marathon-running-pants has become an award-winning performance underwear brand and the Official Bra Partner of England Athletics. Since its release, their innovative Support Bra has been heralded for its seamless breathable tech material, promising the much coveted chafe-free-workout and improved core temperature control thanks to moisture-wicking fabric.

2Lorna Jane Icon Retro Support Ankle Biter Leggings, £87

Lorna Jane is showing us the future in athleisurewear business models. Focused on sustainability and fair working conditions, these are luxury garments designed to last and when it comes to their leggings – there’s not an opaque bum in sight. We have their signature Nothing 2 C Here fabric to thank for the squat-proof properties they bring to the Smith machine and in this bold, monochromatic colourway, you can mix and match with ease.

3Lorna Jane Contour Seamless Cropped Tank, £45

This tank, available in black and neon yellow, boasts an eight-way stretch and is perfect for yoga or pilates. Pair with a sports bra when you’re running or training and you’ll feel the benefits of their breathable tech which prevents the build-up of sweat and helps you to stay cool.

Ever been so frustrated with your ponytail during a HIIT class that you’ve considered taking the nail scissors from your make-up bag and giving yourself a bob in the communal toilets? Hair can be pesky during all kinds of movement but thankfully, Underarmour heard our outrage and developed their Mini Headbands in a whole host of colours. Their key feature is a thin silicone strip on the underside of the band providing a firm grip so you can focus on the things that matter – like form.

5Lululemon Dash All Day Duffel, £158

So this one isn’t new, but it’s a classic. This light-weight mesh duffel bag is the perfect companion for all of your exercise (and errand-based) adventures. Inside the central zip it features a built-in laptop sleeve, as well as zipped compartments for the essentials that always go awry in a gym bag (where art thou, keys?) Outside, there’s a water bottle compartment and a zipped-pocket, the perfect home for lip balm and anti-bac alike.

6OnRunning Cloud X New Generation Trainers, £130

The last ten years have seen huge innovation when it comes to performance shoes but wouldn’t it be great if there was one that catered to running, training, workout classes, mixed sports, HIIT and road running simultaneously? Enter the Cloud X. Created by On, and available in four sophisticated colourways, they’re designed to respond as well to explosive movements as they do to long, gruelling runs, so spare your hallway the extra shoe-clutter and invest smart in a pair of these.

Socks. We won’t blame you if gym socks have always been an afterthought I mean, socks are socks – right? Not anymore and American brand Stance, has thrived since its 2009 launch, celebrated for its focus on this hugely beneficial but often overlooked piece of kit. Their Run Tab socks feature a weave of mesh vents that provide optimum comfort and breathability, while also wrapping around the arch of your foot to ensure support as you move. But the showstopper is  the brand’s Feel360 Technology, a unique fibre treatment that enables the socks to adapt to the environment in your shoe, keeping moisture and odour at bay.
