If you want the “new year, new you” mantra to last beyond January this year, then we think you’ll be interested to hear about John Lewis’ new Fitness & Wellbeing collections. Not only have they got a wide range of yoga, swimming, running and general fitness apparel, accessories and equipment, but they have also launched a social media campaign to keep you motivated and to help you reach your wellbeing goals. Use the hashtag #JLLiveBetter across Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus to connect to their community of fitness fans and get inspired.
John Lewis have also teamed up with a variety of fitness and nutrition experts including health bloggers, yoga gurus and running pros to help motivate you into feeling healthier and happier. You can watch these shoppable videos on Youtube or at John Lewis’ fitness hub.
In the meantime, however, we pick our top 5 highlights from the collection to help kick-start your fitness curve…
1. Fitbit Charge wireless activity and sleep tracking wristband
The Fitbit Charge wristband helps to keep you energised by delivering real-life updates direct to your wrist. It keeps count of your steps taken, distance travelled, calories burned, floors climbed and active minutes as well as tracking the quality of your sleep. The Fitbit Charge also syncs up with your smartphone, offering an impressively in-depth analysis of your fitness levels.
2. NutriBullet Pro 900 Series
If you’re looking for a top-of-the-range juicer, then it has to be NutriBullet. Unlike everyday juicers and blenders, the NutriBullet completely breaks down ingredients into an entirely pulp free smoothie. Not only that, but it’s easy to use and small enough to store away, which is why it gets our vote for the best juicer out there.
3. Lumie Bodyclock Starter Wake-up Light
Let’s face it: it’s not easy getting out of bed on a dark, cold Winter morning. That’s where the Lumie Bodyclock Starter alarm comes in. It’s an alarm clock that wakes you with a gradually brightening 30-minute sunrise, helping to regulate your sleep/wake cycle. It has even been shown to boost mood, energy and productivity levels for the rest of the day.
4. Speedo Aqua Beat Underwater MP3 Player
Speedo’s waterproof MP3 player allows you to listen to your favourite songs at the beach, by the pool and even in the water. The handy clip at the back also means that you can attach it to your goggles or swimwear, but don’t worry, if you drop it, it just floats back up to the surface of the water.
5. Gaiam All Grip Yoga Socks
We love Gaiam’s non-slip yoga socks: perfect for those who worried about hygiene or getting cold feet during their yoga class. The innovative design feels as if you’re barefoot, but will prevent you from slipping on your mat.
