We all make those New Year’s resolutions that we usually don’t follow through on, unfortunately. Legacy Lifestyle offers a rewards program that can make it easier for you to commit to some healthy changes, so if you’ve made a pledge this year to get yourself into shape come January 2018 and need a few good ideas of where to start, check out our list of products that won’t just get you healthier, but also save you money!

Save yourself from the sun

Considering our impressive sun cover in South Africa, one of the biggest health issues we face is overexposure to UV rays during our summer months. Using something like a light cream that can help prevent UV rays from damaging your skin, or worse, is probably something us Southern Hemispherers should get used to. Not only will this keep your skin safer from the sun, but it also keeps wrinkles that might be cropping up at bay.

Get the right tools!

What better way to promote your new favourite hobby or activity than having the best accessories to go with it. This Lorna Jane yoga bag makes the arm-full of items you need to bring an ease, thanks to the zip and go mat cover, sturdy strap, water bottle pouch and secret zip pocket to stash your essentials.

Keep track of your progress

Another crucial component of a good fitness routine is tracking. It might sound silly, but human psychology is geared toward repeating behaviour that is experienced as being rewarding. When people monitor their progress and see their own improvements it serves as a significant motivation to continue. So don’t just do your workouts, but keep track of your physical activity and set incremental goals and you’ll most likely be looking forward to gym trips instead of dreading them.

Your best foot forward

There’s an old saying that goes; “Never spare expense when it comes to your bed or your shoes, because if you’re not in one you’re in the other”. If you’re going to be a treadmill junkie or a road-runner, don’t skimp on footwear. It’s important that heavy-duty cardio is complemented by running shoes that will provide you with support, otherwise in the long term you’re going to be doing damage to your joints that’s rather easily preventable.
