Don’t let cold weather put your exercise routine on ice – from insulating running jackets to reflective leggings, discover winter gym clothes for all fitness levels
Hit your fitness goals in hi-tech winter activewear
We all know about the health and wellbeing benefits of exercise but, now that winter’s here, bolting out on bitter mornings is less appealing. Instead of giving up on your new year’s resolutions, update your winter gym clothes – look for lightweight layers in moisture-wicking recycled materials, sports tops with thumb holes to keep your hands warm and winter sportswear in clever temperature-regulating fabrics that will help you stay cosy without over-heating. Did you know we lose between 7 and 10% of our body heat through our heads? A sporty colour-pop beanie will guard against heat loss while helping you stand out to traffic on dark, gloomy days. Watch the M&S Live show to see more from the latest Goodmove drop.
Weatherproof your workout, without compromising on style
Cloudy skies and puddle-strewn pavements won’t put us off our workouts, especially with an appealing array of Goodmove winter activewear to choose from. Whether you’re chasing your dog in the park, playing team sports or power-walking round the block, it’s all about those high-performance layers. Investing in a directional waterproof parka pays dividends: we promise you’ll be wearing it through April showers and beyond. Flattering compression leggings provide coverage while supporting muscles to help you get going when you need an extra boost. And for confidence on the go, try our new leakproof leggings, which feature a discreet built-in absorbency pad.
Invest in year-round sportswear essentials
Whether it’s for a HIIT workout at home, a run in the local park or a group 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. Long-sleeved gym tops also serve you all year round, and M&S has a great range to choose from, with fabrics that are warm, breathable and, most importantly, moisture wicking. Fleeces are a big trend in or out of the gym, and cosy too, while a cotton hoodie zipped under a waterproof coat is the perfect formula for staying warm and dry.
