As wonderful as the festive feastings have been, we’re feeling a little worse for wear having emerged from a haze of food and booze. To get our butts back in gear, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to test the best in fitness. The Seymour PR squad has had their paws on everything from kooky classes, to new glam gear over the last week. And as a result, here are our top tips on getting your gym mojo back.
DON’T SWEAT, GLOW
Of all the days for modern tech to fail me it had to be today! A Sat Nav malfunction meant we missed the intro and walked straight into a darkened room with disco lights flashing and ‘Show Me Love’ blaring out. After being handed a glow stick by a regular who took pity on us, we were ready to get into the swing of things.
The embarrassment of being late for our first Clubbercise class was soon forgotten as we got our groove - and sweat – on, to old-school club classics and current chart bangers. The choreography was easy to follow and the low lights helped to really let ourselves go - a great incentive for anyone whose confidence is stopping them attending fitness classes. Clubbing and exercise combined…what’s not to LOVE!
THINK OUTSIDE THE KITBOX
What caught our eye about KITBOX is how they’ve integrated their passion for functionality into a range of truly stylish clothing. I was lucky enough to put a selection of their gear to the test during a HIIT session and a cheeky run.
The design of the Innov8 sports bra meant nothing moved up front– not a millimetre - even while I got my burpee on. My chest can’t remember what life was like before and these bras are now a staple in my kit.
I absolutely loved both the vest and tee I tried, but the Stance socks were by far my personal fave! Spun from moisture-wicking fibres that lift sweat to keep your twinkle toes dry and cool, these beauties are super durable…and they come in lots of funky, bright designs. These are a must when training outdoors this winter!
BE A TRACK STAR
We heart the Noom Coach app at Seymour HQ. Not only because it’s a super easy way to keep track of food and exercise, but because it allows you to connect with other users and share the struggle…which to be honest…is real.
‘Noom Troops’ are grouped based on having similar goals, whether that be weightloss, training for a marathon or getting super fit. I found that sharing tips and being able to see others going through the same ups and downs really kept me motivated! Get it. Get it now.
THE STUFF DREAMS ARE MADE OF
Thank you Sports Edit…this is the kit of our dreams! We knew we loved the leggings before we even put them on, you just know they’re going to make you feel fit.
The breathable fabric of the vest means you stay cool and fresh throughout your workout while the jacket is lovely and warm - perfect for the cold snap predicted for the UK this week.
The feel of the clothing screams quality and although it’s at the pricey end of the scale, if you’ve got the cash to spare it's worth every penny.
The Sports Edit has only been open for a few months and their stunning store in London is most definitely worth a visit. Otherwise, head online and start adding to that ever-growing ‘Wish List’.
