If you need some extra motivation to stay active during the hot summer months why not invest in some new fitness and training gear that will definitely make you want to workout. The typical CoachPACT.com client is short on time so I have decided to share my top summer workout gear picks with you so you can shop a new, on trend fitness look at the click of a button.
adidas AlphaBOUNCE Beyond
adidas have pushed the boundaries this year with the release of the AlphaBOUNCE Beyond trainer. Aimed at people who incorporate running into their training to improve their sport this shoe ticks all the boxes for me. This cross training shoe has a wider platform than your usual running shoe and an extended heel support system to allow for more stability during lateral movements – perfect for your lunchtime city run or agility drills in the gym.
The Under Armour Threadborne range
World heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua stated that the key to his success is getting the basics right. “Right food, right training and the right gear.” Below he is wearing items from Under Armour’s Threadborne range. This innovative performance fabric is soft, lightweight and breathable allowing for a comfortable workout despite the intensity you train at. It contains sweat wicking properties and anti-odour technology to ensure that your gear dries fast and won’t cling or chafe. Ideal for sweaty summer sessions! Shop the Mens and Womens Under Armour Threadborne range at Life Style Sports.
Nike Epic React
The Epic React running shoes were a massive launch for Nike this year and they are perfect for short and long distance running. Their breathable Flyknit upper conforms to the shape of your foot and the new Nike React cushioning is both bouncy and lightweight, responding to the impact of every stride. Finding a good fitting, comfortable running shoe can prove to be a difficult one but these are definitely worth a try and they have released a colour to suit everyones taste.
My favourite colour is the Pearl Pink, a must have for Summer:
As a remote coach I often use or suggest various motivational techniques such as goal setting, mindfulness, heart rate monitoring, nutritional analysis etc. to ensure that my clients stay motivated to achieve their health and performance goals. Sometimes, some retail therapy is as good as any to help kick start your routine if you find yourself falling behind.
