Don’t let cold weather put your exercise routine on ice – discover winter activewear for all fitness levels, from insulating running jackets to reflective leggings

Outdoor running clothes

Going for a jog is hardly revolutionary, but outdoor running has surged in popularity this year, with Couch to 5K app downloads rocketing by 92%. Now winter’s here, though, bolting out into the bitter morning is less appealing. Instead of giving up, it’s time to update your workout wardrobe, with thin layers in sweat-wicking material, tops with thumb holes to keep your hands warm and clothes in clever fabrics that will keep you cosy without over-heating.

Walk-the-dog warmers

Cloudy skies and puddle-strewn pavements won’t put us off our daily walks this winter, especially with an appealing array of activewear to choose from. Whether you’re chasing your dog around the park or enjoying a leisurely stroll with a friend, it’s all about those high-performance layers. Borg fleeces are a big trend, and cosy, too, while a cotton hoodie zipped under a waterproof coat is the perfect formula to stay warm and dry.

All-year essentials

Whether it’s a HIIT workout at home, run around the local park or group outdor yoga session, there are certain fitness essentials it’s best not to compromise on. Firstly, a decent sports bra, which will offer support and keep you comfy – read more on how to find the right sports bra here. Good sports leggings will also serve you all year-round, and Marks & Spencer has a great range to choose from, with fabrics that are warm, breathable and, most importantly, won’t show your knickers.
