The best investment you can make this winter is a pair of training shoes!

These gorgeous trainers offer maximum flexibility and an exceptional fit with the Ariaprene bootie construction for breathability, comfort and stretch. For a more affordable option head to Mr. Price Sport for these Ladies Lite Runners. They are engineered to be lightweight and flexible and the reflective strip on the shoe makes sure you are visible in low-light conditions. And, if it’s daring you want then you can’t go wrong with the Women’s Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 Running Shoe. The new Flyknit upper design maximizes comfort while remaining ultra-light, incredibly strong and supportive throughout your stride.

Of course, one of the most important things to do when you’re working out is protect your girls! Invest in a good sports bra this winter and your breasts will thank you later. We love the Puma PWRSHAPE Cardio Bra because it gives you unrestricted freedom of movement and provides maximum support and power during high impact training, from long distance running to endurance routines. Highly functional materials draw the sweat away and keep the skin dry to ensure extra comfort during exercise. For something a little more relaxed opt for the Yoga Bra from Mr. Price Sport – this versatile bra allows you to maximise the movement of your chest while practicing yoga and it’s also made from a lightweight, breathable material to ensure you are comfortable at all times. The Cardio Crop from CottonOnBODY is another great choice for runners who want to protect their chest during intense cardio workouts.
