my favourite gym wear right now…

13th January 2023
If you're anything like me, though gym wear alone won’t help to shift your attitude to exercise, when it makes you feel amazing it’s an encouraging start...
Be it that you’re looking to get stronger this year, become more flexible, work on your mental health… I could go on, exercise – in my opinion – is a good place to start.
Which is why I thought I’d round up my favourite gym wear brands…

After all, though gym wear alone won’t solve any of the above, if it makes you feel amazing it’s an encouraging start!

(If you’re looking for broader motivation tips to help shift your attitude to health and fitness, take a look at this post that I shared last January)

Without further ado therefore…

Best for weight training, yoga and pilates… Adanola

When I’m weight training, doing yoga or pilates, Adanola’s sets do no wrong in my eyes. Whether I’m stretching or squatting, the fabric is so smooth it moulds around the contours of your body. It doubles up as perfect loungewear for that reason, too.




Best for high intensity… Gymshark

On the days that my PT surprises me with a high intensity workout, I’m always grateful when I’ve got my Gymshark sports bra and leggings on (Specifically, their Vital Seamless 2.0 range). They’re functional, supportive and (importantly when you’re sweating) breathable – the perfect combination when you’re in the mood to sweat it all out.



Best for running… TALA

Nothing jiggles in TALA (!) so for me, they’re my go-to when I want to go for a run. They hold you in without feeling like you’ve been vacuum packed! Their black leggings have kept me company on many a dog walk, too. 



Best for colour ways… Adanola

It’s like Adanola were a fly on the wall in my mind when I dreamt of my dream gym wear shades because the colour ways that their sets come in are truly stunning. Naturally, I gravitate towards their earthy olive, sage and espresso sets but their recent Navy Blue set is UNREAL. Classic, ageless and not in the slightest bit garish, they know their target audience (aka. me!) inside out.


Best (trainers) for general exercise… APL

I got my first pair of APL’s in September ’21 and haven’t looked back since. Whilst I was initially skeptical at the lack of laces (would they be tight enough? Would they be too tight? etc…) I was instantly won over by the simplicity of their design and the support that they provide during everything from weight training to HIIT. Nowadays, I alternate between my black, grey and white pairs for pretty much every indoor workout I do. 


Best (trainers) for running… Hoka

Given that the runs around my house take me from muddy trails and fields to winding pavements and roads, I wanted a trainer that felt sturdy – like I could take on anything and live to tell the tale! Hokas make me feel exactly that. Lightweight, flexible with added cushioning for comfort, they provide the extra spring in your step that comes in handy when you’re starting to flag! 




I’d love to hear which gym wear brands are your favourites, right now.

A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
Primrose & Snowdrops are on their way!
February is a very special month, it almost feels like the build up before the crescendo of spring and I can’t help but feel a flutter in my chest at the thought of what’s to come 🌱
