15 Essentials You Need In Your Gym Bag

Yoga devotee or swimmer, HIIT obsessive or runner: Lucy Abletshauser rounds up the kit you need for a new, fitter you in 2020.

New year, new you. That well-worn phrase graces the covers of magazines year in, year out like its groundhog day. Sure, we’ve been here before – who hasn’t – but this time we REALLY mean it. And if it is going to be a new you this time, then you really should have all the kit to complete the picture (I mean, let’s at least try and make this fun).

To that end, we’ve rounded up some of the best gear to make sure you’re on point and ready to pound the pavements, swim or simply peace out. Good luck resolution comrades – and until next year.
