Gym Bag Essentials

Wireless headphones

Makes every workout that bit easier with all the latest beats. Look for in-ear headphones with a built-in heart monitor that syncs to an app to help you work to raise your heart rate. There are also cross-trainer versions which instruct you as you work up a sweat, like your own in-built personal trainer.

Stainless steel water bottle

Unlike plastic, a cool stainless steel water bottle won’t get smelly and is easier to clean due to its wide opening. As it’s insulated you can add ice cubes too. Lots of funky colours available too.

Make-up wipes

Great for throwing in your gym bag, go for micellar water cleansing wipes as they are thicker than most and really soft. They’ll easily remove any traces of make-up, ready for a post-gym patch-up.

Cool workout gear

Look as though you stepped out of a high-end fitness boutique but without the high price tag with spring’s new high-street fitness collections. In rainbow colours and edgy designs, the latest ranges look and feel amazing and will get you showing off that body in style.

Dry Shampoo

Always have a dry shampoo to hand for a post-gym hair fix. It works on all types and textures of hair to give your style a second shot. Simply spritz directly to your roots before and after your workout to absorb oil and sweat, then re-style the front fringe or pile hair into a bun.

Shower gel

Cleanse and reinvigorate after your workout with a skin-friendly sulphate-free body wash. Look for a range with natural ingredients which smell gorgeous but which can be used daily on sensitive skin and won’t dry you out.

Fresh kit

Keep your gym kit fresh and fragrant by washing it with the new Limited Collection for Bold & Lenor by top designer Giles Deacon. Bang on-trend, this range embraces a fun attitude, with fragrances designed to add that extra something to your favourite gear. As you move, the fabric releases exotic scents, not only that, Bold & Lenor protects and enhances your gym wear so it looks and feels like new!

Diamond & Lotus Flower – ideal with edgy florals. It smells amazing and releases a luxurious scent throughout the day. The luxurious sensation of being draped in violet that’s catching the light.

Ocean Escape – this design invokes feelings of fluidity, of waves in motion, resembling the delicate movement of lashings of light silk.

Peony & Cherry Blossom – a scent that perfectly complements a statement dress.

Amethyst & Floral Bouquet – inspired by the deep, sensuous scent of an exotic flower or the rush of colour from a rare gemstone.

The Giles Deacon for Bold Lenor Limited Edition Collection is available nationwide.
