You might have been in two minds about making New Year’s Resolutions for 2021; on one hand it’s a good way to start afresh and look to the future. On the other, who wants to add another challenge on top of the year that was 2020?
We think you should be able to get the best of both – to start looking forward to a time when things are back to normal, whilst ensuring you take care of yourself in the now. We’ve compiled a list of the five most common New Year’s Resolutions, and the kit that’s going to help you do just that. And with some great January discounts going on, saving money or being kinder to your bank account needn’t be a worry.
For those who choose to visit or use our essential stores and COVID-secure services, please be assured that GSP is following strict health and safety procedures to ensure that everyone stays safe and socially distanced during their visit. You can find out more about which GSP stores and services have remained open during lockdown, here. All the products listed in this blog are available to order online.
January is usually the perfect reset for all our health and fitness goals. However, exercising in the same place you work, teach, cook, clean and sleep just doesn’t have the same energy.
Anytime Fitness isn’t letting lockdown stop the team from helping you with your fitness goals and have brought the gym’s energy to apps Anytime Fitness and Anytime Workouts. With over 1100 workouts, there is something for every gym-goer, no matter what equipment you have access to or what your fitness goals are.
Anytime Fitness’ annual pre-paid membership gives you 12 months for the price of 11, and all membership schemes have cancelled their security fob fee. The apps make transitioning from home to gym workouts easy, and allow you to keep up your goals throughout the year.
Looking good makes you feel good, and feeling good makes you want to do good. Pull on an outfit that makes you feel amazing and watch how your productivity rises.
These Velour Leggings from JD Sports look high-end without the high effort. They fit snuggly, and stretch to suit all shapes and sizes, and with a beautifully, smooth outer texture, you’ll look forward to getting ready for the day.
Complete with matching hood here or throw on an oversized hoodie for ultimate comfy active wear.
Every year, we think about the habits we want to get rid of – drinking, smoking, snacking etc. However, why not think of giving yourself a good habit, like correcting your posture?
Sitting on a gym ball like Reebok’s is a great way to start subconsciously correcting your posture, by encouraging you to use your core and straighten your spine for balance. It also gives you more mobility in your calves, hips and lower back, meaning they get a little bit more of a workout than if you were sat still in a chair.
At £21, this gym ball isn’t just a great deal, but an investment in your wellbeing.
It’s only natural to worry about the health and wellbeing of our friends and family, so much so it can be easy to forget about ourselves. A FitBit is a great way to keep an eye on the elements of your health that concern you and keep track of the healthy habits you want to adopt.
The FitBit Versa 3 currently comes in several different colours and is available for less than £200. With Boots’ deal on Electrical Beauty, it also gives you up to £30 in points. Perfect for investing in other elements of your health or to just treat yourself - we all deserve to be healthy and happy.
Sugar may not be healthy as part of your regular diet, but no one said anything about including it in your night-time routine. This Skinny Dip Born Ready Bath Mix Kit has all the ingredients to make you feel and smell like a treat!
Dissolve the bath sherbet into warm running water, followed by the bath soak for candy floss scented bubbles. Once you’ve relaxed in your sweet escape, use the scrub egg to make your skin feel smooth and silky, and add body cream to feel the benefits even after your ‘me-time’ is over. And being cruelty-free, it’s even suitable for Veganuary!
