Are you looking for a sign?
Who found a new love for running or home gyming during quarantine?
Who feels they are well rested and are now gearing up to make some moves?
Who is searching for a little push and some extra motivation to get in the mood?
And who is just delighted that the gyms have finally opened up?
Maybe you are a bit of each! I think I went through all the lockdown phases, from 'wow I have so much time to work out' to 'I hate this, let's open another bottle of wine!' - Balance!
But now I am welcoming the gym back into my life with open arms for so many reasons, routine, social interaction, for dopamine, serotonin… the list goes on!
I am also trying to only make absolutely necessary purchases while everything is still quite uncertain and I have conveniently ruined all my active wear by running around fields with my furpal Archie!
So as I am not buying a whole lot right now, I was really looking forward to this little splurge on some necessary activewear but as I hit the high street I found myself frustrated, parting ways with money, for to be honest, pretty boring basic gym gear.
But after a lot of hunting I did find some great styles and not in the most expected places, so below I have pulled together a few of my favourites to share with you!

Nothing quite motivates me to work out like a new outfit!
