New Year, New You: Our 2015 Fitness Picks

yellowWith 2015 finally here and Christmas but a distant memory, the time to be making New Year’s Resolutions is officially upon us. Whether you stuck to the promises you made back in January 2014 or not, now is the perfect time of year to rest, recharge and reflect upon the months to come, and if the first wish on your list is to get back into shape following the annual festive blowout, Universal Textiles has everything you need to kick start your journey to a new you this new year. Take a look at our top picks for New Year’s fitness below!

Signing up with the local gym is the end result of many a New Year’s resolution, and with a variety of machines in place to tone and train different areas of the body, it’s a great way to get an all-over workout.  This Mens Gildan Performance Vest is a great choice for those looking to keep cool whilst working out, with its sleeveless build and special moisture-wicking fabric helping to move sweat and excess heat away from the body. For women, this Spiro Performance T-Shirt is another great choice, with its quick-dry polyester build helping you to avoid excess perspiration.

Combining effective, aerobic exercise with relaxing, therapeutic motion, swimming is a great way to get fit, with around 3 million of us in the UK making a splash on a weekly basis. These Mens Aqua Sphere Montreal Jammer Shorts are the perfect way to get a streamlined swim, with their chlorine resistant build and breathable, high stretch fabric allowing you to exercise in comfort. For women, this Aqua Sphere Rachel Swimming Costume offers similar benefits, with a supportive bra-style back and UV protectant build helping you to get the most out of your swim.blackshoes

Going for a regular run can be a great alternative for those looking to take care of their body without hitting the gym, allowing you to avoid costly monthly fees. A sturdy and supportive pair of shoes like these Hi-Tec Ladies Covent Garden Trainers is a must however, with their glass fibre stability shank and waterproof leather upper helping to keep feet safe and dry whilst you’re on the move. For men, these Skechers Flex Advantage Trainers boast a memory foam insole and a shock absorbing midsole to keep feet both comfortable and stable, with built-in mesh fabric panels to allow effective ventilation.
